Remembering: War veteran Col. Chung Yongwoo (retired) salutes at the Korean Remembrance Day ceremony on Saturday at Central

It’s one of the most famous battles fought by Canadian and Commonwealth troops during the Korean War, yet few people know about the Battle of Kapyong. But this past Saturday, Burnaby residents turned out in the rain at the Ambassador of Peace monument in Central Park to attend a remembrance service to honour the people who fought during this battle and during the Korean War. The event was organized by the Korean Veterans Association, Western Canadian chapter. Sonny Son, president of the local chapter of the veterans’ association, said the ceremony has been held in Burnaby the last couple of years. “We have almost 400 members, some of whom fought in the Korean War and this is a remembrance service,” said Son. The actual Battle of Kapyong had

Park. The event marked the 61st anniversary of the beginning of the Korean War and the 60th anniversary of a key battle, the Battle of Kapyong, where Canadian troops distinguished themselves with their courage.

Tree activist upset over mayor’s reaction Janaya Fuller-Evans

A delegation of three women who spoke to city council about Burnaby’s tree bylaws say they were disappointed and disgusted by their treatment by Mayor Derek Corrigan. “I was very disappointed by his reaction,” said Burnaby resident Donna Polos, who was part of a three-person delegation at the city council meeting on Monday night. “He was going through a tirade, taking offence to what we were saying. He wasn’t

even listening to us,” she told the Burnaby NOW Tuesday morning. The delegation brought the issue of the city’s residential tree bylaw, along with a petition of more than 500 signatures, to Monday night’s council meeting. Burnaby’s tree bylaw from 1996 restricts property owners from cutting down trees three months prior to applying for a demolition permit for the building, and one year after receiving an occupancy permit. Polos, Heather Duff and Joyce Spencer voiced their concerns that the city’s residential tree bylaw is not strong enough. Duff said she had lived in Burnaby for

more than 30 years and had recently seen a neighbour cut down a large evergreen tree. Many of her neighbours were also concerned about the loss of trees in Burnaby. “Burnaby is not so beautiful anymore,” she concluded. The delegation compared Burnaby’s bylaw to Vancouver’s protection of trees bylaw, with Spencer pointing out the financial penalties possible in Vancouver for cutting down a residential tree without permission range from $500 to $10,000. “I ask you, which city is more environmentally friendly?” she said to council.

Polos, who worked on the petition with neighbour Thomas Chan – the subject of an article in the NOW in April, said she has lived on Victory Street for the past 35 years. “Over the years, trees have rapidly disappeared,” she said. There are strong laws in Burnaby protecting park and boulevard trees, Polos pointed out, but said she felt the residential trees were not protected enough. Corrigan said he took offence to the delegation’s comparison of Burnaby and

Save your carrot tops – scrap program grows Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Council has approved plans to expand the multi-family food scraps collection pilot project throughout the city by next fall. The six-month pilot project involving six complexes was completed in March. Belgravia Tower, the one highrise involved in the pilot project, received an Environment Award from the city this month for its sustainability efforts, including involvement in the food scrap pilot project. “We’re about as green as you can get,” Dan Leah, president of Belgravia’s strata council, said in a phone interview. The tower has techno-trash recycling, a discard room for donating old clothes and other items to Value Village, he said. The building has had paper and bottle recycling

for years, and put in low-energy lights and ballasts as well, Leah added. Belgravia has had uncooked food scrap composting for years, but intends to stick with the city’s food scrap collection program from this point in, according to Leah. The strata council intends to introduce CFL light recycling and plastic bag returns in the future, he said. Leah credits some of the condo owners who have worked to bring in the initiatives, such as Sharon Jackson and Wendie Nelson, for the success of Belgravia’s sustainability efforts. “My hope is we can use the award as a springboard to bring more people on board,” he said. That was the main challenge with the food scrap collection program, Leah said – getting everyone to participate. Despite being the largest complex

involved, with 155 units, the Belgravia only diverted 1,281 kilograms of food during the six-month project, which was one of the lower diversion amounts of the six complexes that participated. Part of the problem was difficulty communicating about the project to the tower’s Asian population, many of whom speak English as a second language, he said. But the strata resisted introducing signage in multiple languages, he said, because it would be difficult to know when to stop. “If you have signs in Mandarin,” he pointed out, “then you also have to have signs in Korean.” There is also a sense of disconnect in such a large building, Leah said, adding implementing the food scrap program would probably be easier in smaller buildings. The multi-family food scrap collection expansion includes all multi-family build-

ings where garbage and recycling pick-up is managed by the city, according to Lambert Chu, Burnaby’s director of engineering. In all, the city would provide food scrap collection for about 30,000 multi-family units throughout the city, he said. While city staff works with the managers of these complexes to decide on the numbers and placement of toters and other final details, the city will continue providing food scrap pick-up for the six buildings that participated in the pilot project, he said. “They have been great customers of the program,” Chu added. The largest amount of food waste was collected from Wiltshire Village over the six months, at nearly 2,050 kilograms. The second largest was at Halston Hills, with about 1,735 kilograms of food scraps Scraps Page 4

Vancouver, saying Burnaby has made many environmental advances that Vancouver has not, such as Burnaby’s uncovered protected waterways. “I appreciate you’re very passionate about the trees, that being said, I’ll forgive you for being well over the top,” he told the delegation. “To denigrate the city, the record of the city, is well over the top.” The city has dedicated a higher percentage of space to park land than Vancouver, he pointed out. Burnaby has consistently been on the cutting edge when it comes to environmental initiatives, Corrigan said, adding he was recently given an award for being the greenest mayor in Canada. He was referring to his recent Green Champion Award from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. But he conceded that new property owners might get around the city’s requirements by simply waiting a year before cutting down trees on their properties or three months before demolishing the residence and putting in a new development. “We tried to catch that problem (with the bylaw),” he said. “I don’t think we’ve been successful. People have waited us out.” But it is a balancing act, Corrigan added. “I think it is always a good thing when the city respects private property rights,” he said. “There’s a balance to achieve.” The city’s environment committee is planning a workshop with city staff on the bylaw, Corrigan said. “The wheels of city hall do turn slowly,” he said in response to a comment from Polos about having contacted the city about the issue six months before.

Kapyong: Ceremony also marked anniversary of beginning of Korean war its 60th anniversary this April, with local veterans attending a remembrance service held in Tofino in April. The Battle of Kapyong was fought between April 22 and 25, 1951, pitting United Nations forces – primarily Australian and Canadian – against the Chinese Communists, with the UN forces needing to win to keep Seoul under Korean rule. The fighting occurred during the Chinese spring offensive and saw the 27th British Commonwealth Brigade establish blocking positions in the Kapyong Valley, on a key route south to Seoul. Canada was represented by the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, which was tasked with protecting and holding the ground at Hill 677. During a fierce night battle, the Chinese were unable to move the Canadians off the hill. The fighting helped blunt the Chinese offensive and the actions of the Australians and Canadians at Kapyong were important in assisting to prevent a breakthrough on the United Nations central front. The two battalions bore the brunt of the assault and

collected. Ledgestone I diverted more than 1,176 kilograms of food waste, Edmonds Place 1,163 kilograms, and Imperial Court nearly 336 kilograms. The sizes and type of housing in each complex varied, from 31 town homes in Wiltshire Village to 155 condos in Belgravia Tower. The food scraps collection program has been available to 35,000 single and two-family residences since last June. The city hopes to expand the program to multi-family buildings that receive trash and recycling collection services from private companies in the future, Chu said. The pilot project was part of the city’s plan to meet Metro Vancouver’s Integrated Solid Waste and Resource Management Plan goal of 70 per cent diversion of waste by 2015. As of last year, Burnaby was at about 50 per cent diversion, Chu said, adding that was prior to the introduction of this program.

The Catholic Civil Rights League is backing Burnaby parents who want their kids pulled from class now that the school board has passed a new anti-homophobia policy. “Parents of public school students can arrange for the exemption of their children from classes or exercises that are offensive to their moral or religious conviction across the curriculum,” the league stated in a press release. According to a Burnaby school board policy based on Education Ministry rules, students can be pulled from class if they or their parents find the curriculum materials “sensitive,” but only in areas regarding sexual health, which are typically a part of Health and Career Education (from kindergarten to Grade 9) and

a key focus, and reminded that the statistics don’t show improvements – like a minimum wage increase – that may have impacted the data in the intervening months. Fair enough. It’s possible that things could have changed dramatically since the 2009 data was collected. Possible, but unlikely. Change rarely happens that quickly or dramatically. Regardless, it doesn’t erase the question of how could so many children could be living in poverty even two

In the lead-up to the Olympics, when the public tap was wide open for infrastructure development and support for games venues, there were children heading off to school hungry or whose families were struggling just to cover basic needs. It’s mindboggling that any child in a country like Canada, in the year 2011, should be living in poverty. There are ways to solve this issue, but it needs political will. Until then, the only grade we can give on this report card is an ‘F.’

Last week, I lost a sum of cash which I assumed had fallen out of my pocket while biking. Just to be sure, I visited and asked the folks in the shops along Hastings Street I had visited that day. Receiving no positive answer, I wrote the cash off as forever lost. This morning I dropped into the Stop N Go in Carleton Square to buy the morning paper and the proprietor greeted me with some good news. He was restocking the magazines directly below the counter on the weekend when he found a quantity of cash. He remembered me asking about it, so he put it aside for me and returned it to me today.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Policy seeks to protect continued from page 6

welcoming, accepting, respectful and tolerant home in Canada, I have been following these stories with interest and wonder what is the real motivation behind the opposition to a policy that seeks to protect minorities who are constantly disenfranchised, ostracized and excluded because of their sexual identity. I came to love this country because of its values rooted in respect for human rights and the protection of minorities. For these reasons, I find it difficult to believe that many would support a stance that perpetuates stigma and shame against people who want to be themselves. Why would a conscious citizen oppose a policy that seeks to protect vulnerable students and teachers from being bullied and discriminated? Sadia Ramirez, Vancouver

Throw fear outside

Dear Editor:

I appreciate the Burnaby NOW’s coverage regarding unanimous acceptance of Policy 5.45 by the school board members. The video posted on Jennifer Moreau’s blog demonstrated how well the school board worked with the various subsets of the community for a resolution. However, Burnaby’s Parent’s Voice group was less than impressed. The video included a woman who claimed

she was present to “witness darkness history” claiming the schools will now openly “promote homosexuality.” She fears the LGBTQ community “cannot reproduce the next generation.” As a person born into a fundamentalist sect, and who faithfully practised for 40 years, my heart went out to her as I realized she sincerely believes in what are typically religiously-defined “family values.” The Parents’ Voice group may now disrupt the education of their own children. Looking back, in my parental role, I too once would have over-reacted similarly. Those fears were fed by my religious leaders. Such dramatization could be viewed as yet another type of bullying to force a religious agenda. Some might even say the group is now using their own children as pawns to manipulate the school board. Reactions like that would be considered “honorable” and a “sacrifice in the name of God” by hard-line fundamentalists. Too often, religions teach an “us against them” mentality where “we” are always better than “them.” Such a mindset does not encourage members to accept the rich diversity around us. I was fortunate to find excellent therapists who validated my anxieties and helped me work through such groundless fears. Religious folk might choose to trust their own scripture that says, “Perfect love throws fear outside.” – 1 John 4:8

the B.C. Medical Association. “Their proposals came as an unpleasant surprise and signalled a very different approach by the new government than we had experienced with the previous administration,” BCMA president Dr. Ian Gillespie wrote in a letter to his members, some 10,000 doctors, earlier this month. Gillespie calls the government’s proposals “draconian” and “unacceptable” and is worried about a confrontation in the months ahead. The government appears to be trying to wrest more control from the doctors, as it seeks to eliminate or downgrade committees or programs that give physicians a degree of input or control. It also is trying to eliminate payments in some

areas. This is all bad news, and doesn’t fit with Premier Christy Clark’s “families first” agenda. Relations between doctors and the government have been smooth for almost a decade, a near-miracle considering the previous three decades of acrimony between the BCMA and Victoria. Why rock the boat now? Many of the programs and committees negotiated with the BCMA in the expiring master agreement are still working very well. How will jabbing a stick in the BCMA’s eye improve the health-care system, particularly since it may lead to a return to the bad old days, which saw doctors close their offices and clinics in protest over government measures? Clark may not real-

ize how hard it can be to negotiate with the BCMA. It is not like dealing with a regular union – like the BCTF or BCGEU. Instead, it is akin to cutting a deal with several thousand selfemployed business people, who act in concert when it suits them but who can quickly pursue individual agendas if they think that course of action is called for. Frustrating, maddening, aggravating – all are terms used by health ministers in the past when it came to BCMA negotiations. So get ready for some labour showdowns in the months ahead. Prediction: the government will impose a teachers’ contract, reach a compromise with the BCGEU, but will lose a fight with the doctors. Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global B.C.

Traffic changes OK’d Vocal Heights traffic advocate disappointed that some ideas were nixed in neighbourhood Janay Fuller-Evans

staff reporter

Seven new Burnaby Heights traffic improvement recommendations were approved at Monday night’s council meeting. But traffic barriers on Beta and Gamma avenues did not make the list. “I’m disappointed that the recommendation was made,” Peter Cech said of staff’s recommendation not to implement the barriers. Cech, who is a member of the Capitol Hill Community Association and has been an advocate of increased traffic measures in the area for the past eight years, spoke to the NOW on Tuesday after appearing at the council meeting with a Heights resident, Ivan Hnatiuk. “To my mind, it is the only traffic management tool to deal with the problem, which is too much traffic coming from Capitol Hill through to the Heights.” But he said he approved of some of the safety measures being introduced, such as raised crosswalks and more sidewalks, and was grateful for the ongoing dialogue with city council on the issue. The recommendations that will be moving ahead are: ◆ Working towards future left-turn lanes at Gilmore Avenue; ◆ Developing criteria for Local Area Service Program (LASP) speed humps on residential streets at high-priority locations;

◆ Developing criteria for city-funded raised sidewalks on local collector streets at high-priority locations; ◆ Developing criteria for city-initiated LASPs for sidewalks at high-priority locations; ◆ Completion of a parking review for the neighbourhood; ◆ Reconfiguring the Cambridge Street and Gamma Avenue intersection from six legs into four; ◆ and, putting in a marked crosswalk across Willingdon Avenue at Pandora Street. The city’s transportation committee recommended against increasing the current hours of the HOV lanes on Hastings street, or putting in road closure barriers, due to feedback from the public, according to a report from the committee. The city received 638 surveys back from the more than 6,000 they sent out to the Burnaby Heights and Capitol Hill neighbourhood. The Heights neighbourhood returned 48 per cent, Capitol Hill 47 per cent, and five per cent came from other areas, according to the report. Responses ranged from a support level of -10 for the nine proposed improvements to +10. “I have lived in North Burnaby since 1957. We have had several changes over the years,” wrote one respondent. “My biggest concern is blocking off Beta and Gamma Avenues.” The respondent went on to say it would limit access off Capitol Hill. Many of the respondents made suggestions about other possible improvements, such as a four-way stop at MacDonald Heights Page 9

ommends staying calm. Face the bear but back away slowly without making direct eye contact, which can be interpreted as threatening. Every bear is different, but if it starts snorting and charging but veers off at the last minute, this is just defensive behaviour, so keep backing away.

Avenue and Cambridge Street. Both Cech and Hnatiuk said at the meeting that they hope the barrier idea will be revisited in the future. The public consultation went well, Mayor Derek Corrigan said at the meeting, adding staff had done a tremendous job engaging with the public on the issues. “The process satisfies me,” he said. Traffic running through the Heights along Hastings Street and into neighbouring residential streets has been a problem in the 24 years he’s been on council, Corrigan said, adding he never thought the city could fix it, just deal with it in the best way possible. Coun. Paul McDonell, a first-time councillor, said the process has been an education, and that he heard a variety of opinions at the open house he attended. Coun. Sav Dhaliwal, chair of the city’s traffic safety committee, said Burnaby also has the challenge of dealing with the provincial government’s transportation plans, such as the Port Mann/Highway One expansion project. The first stage of Burnaby’s traffic improvement plan, developed from recommendations made last September, includes a one-year trial of a reduced speed limit in the Heights neighbourhood; curb bulges for three Albert Street intersections; continued education and enforcement of traffic laws in the neighbourhood; continued support for upgrading residential roads; and a periodic review of Hastings Street signal timings.

PostMedia columnist

Question: Can you tell me about the different types of hot chili sauce you use in your recipes? Brian, Victoria Answer: There are hundreds of hot chili sauces and specialty food stores and websites, such as hotsauce.com, provide a wide selection. In my recipes, though, to simplify things, I use the three main types sold at supermarkets. One I call Asian-style hot chili sauce, because it’s most often used as a condiment for, or in, Asian-style dishes. It comes in two main styles. One is smooth, fairly thick and often sold in squeeze bottles. The other type is coarser in texture and contains bits of chili pepper and seeds. In my recipes calling for Asian-style chili sauce, I’m referring to the smooth type. If I used the coarser type, such as sambel olek, I would note that. Thai-style sweet chili sauce is a thick, sweet and fairly mild sauce with bits of chili peppers in it. At Thai restaurants, it’s the sauce served with spring rolls. It can also be used as a condiment for other foods, be used as a glaze, and be the saucy base for a stir-fry. When my recipe calls for hot pepper sauce, I’m referring to those styles, such as Tabasco or Frank’s Red Hot, that are more fluid and vinegar based. Hot pepper sauces can range from being fairly

mild, such as those flavoured with jalapeños, to being fiery hot, such as those flavoured with habañero peppers. I most often use hot pepper sauce in Southernstyle or Tex-Mex recipes. I also consider it an all-purpose sauce to drizzle on anything needing a kick, whether it’s scrambled eggs or fried chicken.

Rice wine vinegar

Some recipes call for rice wine vinegar. In others, rice vinegar is listed. They are actually the same thing and in stores rice vinegar is what you’ll most often see noted on the bottle, not rice wine vinegar. Some recipe writers, including myself in the past, use the term rice wine vinegar because this vinegar is made from fermented rice or rice wine. Rice vinegar can be used in a range of dishes needing a pleasing sharp taste, such as stir-frys, hot and sour soup, dip for pot-stickers or salad dressing. Seasoned rice vinegar is rice vinegar flavoured with salt and sugar. Like the malt vinegar you sprinkle on chips, this type of vinegar is used more like a condiment. One seller of it, Nakano brand, says this lightly sweet, mild vinegar is perfect for splashing on meat, shrimp, pasta or almost anything else. I would not substitute seasoned rice vinegar for rice vinegar. The rice vinegar in a recipe is meant to add a sharp taste, not one that is sharp, sweet and also contains salt.

ASPARAGUS SALAD WITH FOUR-FLAVOUR DRESSING Bright-green asparagus accented with a sweet (honey), sour (rice vinegar), salty (soy sauce) and spicy (chili sauce) salad dressing. Preparation time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 90 seconds Makes: 6-8 (side dish) servings

1 3/4 lbs. asparagus, stems trimmed 1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper 3 Tbsp soy sauce 1 Tbsp vegetable oil 1 Tbsp rice vinegar 2 tsp honey, or to taste 1/2 tsp sesame oil 1 tsp hot Asian-style chili sauce, or to taste 1 medium garlic clove, minced 1 tsp finely chopped fresh ginger Boil asparagus until just tender, about 90 seconds. Drain well, cool in icecold water, and drain well again. Arrange asparagus on a serving platter; cover and refrigerate until needed. Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl.

Common ‘traps’ can affect all relationships HEALTHWISE

Dr. Davidicus Wong

E

ach of us is unique. We are a complex mix of the strengths and weaknesses of our parents, and to this mix, we have our own idiosyncrasies. Our beliefs and behaviours are shaped by our experiences. So each couple is unique – in how two unique individuals relate – how we get along and

how we don’t. The strengths and problems of each couple are not generic, but there are common communication traps through which we all may stumble. All or Nothing Language: In real life, I’ve never met any cartoon characters, but when things aren’t going well, we can talk about the people we live with as they were. None of us is so black and white. None of us is all good or all bad. When we start off statements about our partners with, “You always … ” or “You never … ”, we perpetuate in our own

minds skewed and biased caricatures of them. The more we reinforce an evernarrowing view of them, the less likely we are to see evidence to the contrary. This is one of the ways we can slide into ever more negative views of one another. We can only get off this slippery slope by stepping to the side, taking a better look and gaining a wider view of both our partners and our relationships. It can start by resolving never to say “never” … or “always.” Really, none of us is that consistent. Inaccurate Mindread– ing: It’s great when we’re

so used to our habits and preferences that we know just what the other wants. It makes meal planning and gift buying much easier. Mindreading can push us apart when it’s not so accurate, and it leads to anger and resentment towards one another. We can make incorrect assumptions about our partners’ motivation. Sometimes we assume that our partners know what we want and how we feel even if we don’t express this in words. Some people decide to leave a relationship when their needs have not been

met. Too often, they make this decision having never expressed those needs. Hurt or angry feelings can fester and brew in our own minds. If we don’t check out our assumptions and express how we feel early on, we can grow further apart while our negative feelings simmer and eventually boil over. Emotional Arguments: We’ve all heard the advice about never going to bed angry, but when one or both partners is very angry, a time out is better than an escalating argument. When we’re emotionally aroused, we’re not as rational. In a tantrum, a

five-year-old will act like a toddler and an adult like a child. In anger, we can say and do things we will regret and cause greater harm to one another and our relationships. A couple should agree on their rules of engagement and disengagement. When is it OK to take a time out and when is it OK to resume a discussion in a calm environment? Dr. Davidicus Wong is a physician and writer. His Healthwise column appears regularly in this paper, and his blog can be found at davidicuswong.wordpress. com.

And a long, wonderful journey it can be. That’s why a smart and sustainable financial plan for those journey years is not only important, it’s imperative. At Rogers Group Financial, we will tailor a retirement strategy specifically to your unique financial means and goals. And together we can ensure that each and every day of your retirement is as fulfilling and worry free as the one before.

No. 1 Burnaby boy a first for B.C. Tom Berridge sports editor

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins made provincial hockey history when he was selected first overall in the 2011 NHL entry draft in Minnesota on Friday. The 18-year-old sensation for the Red Deer Rebels of the Western Hockey League was made the first-ever B.C. player to go No. 1 in the junior draft when Edmonton Oilers general manager Steve Tambellini called his name at the Xcel Energy Center. “It’s been a whirlwind. It was a lot of fun,” said an exhausted NugentHopkins from Red Deer on Monday. “I’m trying to enjoy it all. You only go through it once. It’s all worthwhile.” As the first player from B.C. to go first overall, Nugent-Hopkins, surpasses some all-time greats like Joe Sakic of Burnaby, claimed 15th in 1987, and Steve Yzerman, a fourth overall pick in 1983. He also beat out another Burnaby product Ryan Walter, who along with former New Westminster Bruins blueliner Barry Beck, previously held the honour as highest second overall picks from B.C. in 1978 and ‘77, respectively. In 2007, New Westminster’s Kyle Turris and Karl Alzner of Burnaby were claimed third and fifth, respectively. Other Lower Mainland products going early in the first round were Paul Kariya (4th in ‘93), Andrew Ladd (4th in 2004), Gilbert Brulé (6th in ‘05), Evander Kane (4th in ‘09) and Ryan Johansen, a fourth overall pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets last season. But the biggest thrill for the likeable NHL prospect was hearing his name called and then putting on the Oilers’ jersey, he said. “It was an incredible feeling. I feel I’ve been waiting to put (the jer-

B.J. MacDonald said: “Nugent-Hopkins has very good puck-handling capabilities. His on-ice awareness is very good. He’s one of those guys that knows where everyone is and where they should be and where the puck should go. … He can dish both right or left, either on his backhand or forehand with that kind of vision. But not just the vision, but the fact he can lay that puck between the skate boot and the skate blade – that’s hard to find.” * Peter Sullivan said: “A couple of people high up – and not naming names – said Nugent-Hopkins has the best vision since No. 99 (Wayne Gretzky). That’s the highest compliment you can get. But the other thing is the way he competes. He never takes a night off and he works as hard in his own end and he does in the offensive zone, and that takes a special player with a special set of skills to do that.”

LACROSSE

Sr. A Lakers move into tie for third place in WLA Tom Berridge

sports editor

The Burnaby Lakers are getting it done, one way or another. The senior A Lakers found a silver lining in an 11-10 loss to the Nanaimo Timbermen at home Friday and then took advantage of an overtime opportunity to edge the Coquitlam Adanacs 11-9 the following night. Burnaby’s loss to the TMen left the season series split at 1-1-1, but the team holds a tiebreak advantage, should the two teams be tied at the end of the regular season, owing to a 13-9 win over the A’s in the season opener. Saturday’s extra-time win in Coquitlam came on a couple of power play goals resulting from two minor penalties blown up at the end of regulation time. The two results keep the 4-6-1 Lakers in the thick of a tight Western Lacrosse Association race. “It’s easy to blame each other when you’re young, but we’re learning that the best thing is it takes a full 60 minutes to win a game.

We’re trusting each other a little more,” said Laker lefthander Dane Stevens, who had four goals and eight points over the weekend and was a third star in the loss to Nanaimo. The Nanaimo matchup was a microcosm of the senior Lakers’ season to date. Down 7-1 early in the second period, Burnaby finally found its feet with its special teams, scoring five goals on the power play and two while killing off penalties to climb back into the game in a wild 13goal middle frame. Stevens led the charge with two goals and three assists in the period. Rookie Scott Jones also added his four points, including two counters, in the pivotal second frame. Shaun Dhaliwal capped off a six-goal Laker run in the second, tying the game at 7-7 with his first shorthanded marker of the year. Stevens and Trevor Moore, with his second goal of the game, also knotted the score as the two teams traded goals until the end of the period. Matt Quinton tied the

contest 10-10 in a lowscoring third period. Ryan Forslund got the game-winner for Nanaimo, beating a defender baseline and then scoring at the left crease on rookie Dan Lewis, who replaced starter Scott Lowe in the opening period. In Coquitlam, Lewis got the start and earned a third star nod, with 45 saves, including 39 in the first two periods of play. Burnaby’s power play was key again, scoring three times on seven opportunities. The Lakers currently lead the league with 29 extra-man markers and are third in powerplay execution with a 40.85 per cent success rate. Scott Tinning and Quinton led the Lakers with two goals and two assists apiece. Stevens and Calvin Craig also potted a pair of goals each. The outcomes are increasingly encouraging for the young Lakers, which has nobody on the roster over the age of 30 and only six who are past 25. “We see the potential in WLA Page 25

Strong second period Canada drops World Cup opener to Germany sinks PoCo Saints JR. A LACROSSE

The Burnaby Lakers are beginning to look like a second-period team. The junior A Lakers scored seven goals in a 10-6 home win over the Port Coquitlam Saints on Sunday. In Ladner, the Lakers put together a huge second-period rally, coming back from a 9-3 deficit to tie the contest with a similar seven goals, including six unanaswered counters, before losing 14-12 in overtime to the Delta Islanders on Saturday. At home, Bryan Gillis tallied a hat trick and Brad Confrey, Jaxson Lee and Jackson Decker all had a couple of scores to lead the Laker juniors to its fifth win this season and into a tie for sixth place with Nanaimo.

Patrick Bayliss was called on to make 25 stops for the win in goal. But on Saturday, Delta’s leading point-getters Keith Ryan and Logan Schuss were a bit too much to handle down the stretch. Ryan sent the game into extra time with a late power-play goal from Schuss. Ryan also counted his fourth and fifth goals of the game in OT, including a late insurance marker while shorthanded. Schuss led all scorers with four goals and four helpers. Blake Mattinson led the Lakers with a goal and six assists. Decker had two goals in a six-point night. Ryan Watson tallied a hat trick for Burnaby. The Lakers host New West at the Copeland centre on Friday at 8 p.m.

Canada lost its group opener 2-1 to the topranked Germans at the FIFA Women’s World Cup before almost 74,000 spectators in Berlin on Sunday. Team captain Christine Sinclair of Burnaby scored Canada’s only goal of the contest on a highlight reel free kick in the 82nd minute that shaved the deficit to a single goal. “We had a good first half and we had more possession than Germany,” said Canada’s national

team coach Carolina Morace in a Canada Soccer press release. “If Christine Sinclair was more lucky in the first half to score, then maybe we would be talking about another result.” Sinclair had her chance early in the first half but sent a pass by Diana Matheson over the goal in the sixth minute. Later in the game, Sinclair was elbowed in the face and received a broken nose, which

momentarily sidelined her. Sinclair returned to the play and eventually set up the free kick, when she was brought down by a German defender outside the 18-yard box. This time Sinclair made no mistake, bending the ball over the German wall to the near top corner of the net and past a lunging German keeper Nadine Angerer. Canada takes on France in group A play on Thursday.

Luke Lockhart of Burnaby received an invitation to the Washington Capitals’ prospect camp in July following the NHL junior entry draft on Saturday. Lockhart, a third-year centre with the Seattle Thunderbirds of the Western Hockey League, went undrafted at the two-day event last weekend.

Here's How It Works: 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!
