Gearing up: SFU students Louis Lam, Charles Lui and Adam Fong are part of a group that organized a sporting equipment

drive for Saturday, July 23 at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre in Burnaby. The idea came from a class project, and the donations will go to families in need. For more information, go to ProjectGearingUp.ca.

Gearing up to help kids staff reporter

What started as a school assignment has turned into a sporting drive to help families in need. Five Simon Fraser University students in a project management class came up with the idea to hold a sporting drive. “So many people are supportive of this,” said Emily Shen, one of the student

On Saturday, July 23, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., people can drop off used sports equipment at the Bill Copeland Sport Centre at 3676 Kensington Ave. The donations go to families that can’t afford sports equipment for their kids. The group has also teamed up with Burnaby’s parks and recreation depart-

The SFU students are looking for donations of basketballs, soccer balls, racquets, hockey and lacrosse sticks, soccer cleats and some sports wear, such as football and hockey pads.

Members of a parents’ group opposed to the Burnaby school board’s anti-homophobia policy are forming a new civic party. Parents’ Voice spokesperson Gordon World confirmed Friday that some members were in the preliminary stages of forming a civic party. “We’re having meetings and getting our platform solidified and getting our communications set up,” World said. The party will not be called Parents’ Voice, but it will have a focus on parents. World said the group is not putting city council candidates forward but is hoping to run a full slate for school board. “We have a number of expressions of interest. Today we don’t have a full confirmed slate, we’re definitely shooting for that,” he said. George Kovacic and Charter Lau – Burnaby residents and outspoken critics of the school board policy – will also be involved. After weeks of controversy, the Burnaby school board passed a new policy on June 14 that’s intended to protect staff and students from homophobic bullying. Parents’ Voice had formed in opposition to the policy, claiming it infringes on their rights to educate their children according to their moral and religious beliefs.

After housing the Burnaby Mental Wealth Society for more than a decade, the homey twostorey clubhouse at 6112 Sussex Ave. is up for lease. Brett Enemark, a parttime employee for the society, contacted the NOW on June 27 about the sign put in front of the building by the owner. “The house is up for lease, but if we can find some funding, the owner is prepared to give us some room,” Enemark wrote in an email to the NOW. The society recently found out it would be losing its funding from Fraser Health as of Aug. 31, after operating in Burnaby for about 18 years. It has been based at the clubhouse for more than 13 years. The society was told by Fraser Health to prepare a detailed application form for funding this year with 17 working days’ notice in April, according to Jim Tessley, past-president of the society. Tessley spoke to the NOW about the issue last month, along with another member, Carmina Tinaburri, who has since

More to the point, well, don’t we have any real problems to worry about? Has hunger been solved? Homelessness fixed? Poverty eliminated? War and revolution made a thing of the past? Yes, we know. Sarcasm is uncalled for. We sound unbearably pompous and hypocritical, because we complain about the weather just as loudly as anybody. But every now and then, we need a kick in the pants to remind ourselves

that we have pretty darn good lives – and we should start paying a little more attention to those who don’t. So consider this our kick to ourselves and to the rest of you weatherbashers out there. Yeah, rain isn’t fun. But on the scale of revolution, war crimes, famine and international economic crises, it’s not really all that big a deal. Buy an umbrella and get over it already.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Give concert-goers transit help

Dear Editor:

I was really displeased to leave Deer Lake Park with some estimated 5,000 other people who attended the Tragically Hip concert to see there was only regular transit service along Canada Way. I was one of what looked like a couple hundred other people who either had an hour-plus wait at a bus station or an hour-plus walk to a SkyTrain station. The other option was parking at $60 a spot. Calling a cab company wasn’t even possible as phone calls weren’t even getting a busy signal. If you saw a cab on the street, it is the first person to run up to the cab who got it, and then watch out as they were speeding as fast as possible to get the next fare. (And

to be fair to the driver, I would have done the same: make your hay while the sun shines, so to speak.) I am all for getting out of the car (actually I sold mine a couple of years ago), but the 1.5-hour wait and, ultimately, the walk to Willingdon Avenue left me tired and angry. On the plus side, it had stopped raining so the walk wasn’t a wet one. Don’t get me wrong: Deer Lake Park is an amazing venue, and I was happy to enjoy the concert there. But if you want to hold large acts I believe the City of Burnaby (venue operator), Live Nation (promoter) and TransLink should work together, or at least communicate, to provide adequate resources and alternatives to the $60 parking so everyone can travel smart both to and from a concert!

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR No fan of gondola plan

Dear Editor:

Re: Residents share anti-gondola message, Burnaby NOW, July 13. I’m perplexed how TransLink can find $120 million or more for this tourist attraction cable car but is unable, over a decade, to find the cash to build the Evergreen transit line. The proponents of the cable car claim that service time to and from SFU will be improved. I suggest that total door-to-door trip times may be longer with the cable car. The proponents claim that operating costs will be reduced as bus operations are scaled back. I suggest that provision of a local community bus service within SFU campus and continuation of the No. 135 and No. 144 buses from Hastings Street up Burnaby Mountain will offset most of the alleged cost savings. Finally, I would expect cable car users to pay a surcharge for this deluxe service (just as YVR transit users do). D.B. Wilson, Burnaby

BCTF gives unions bad rep Dear Editor:

Re: BCTF out of touch with reality, In My Opinion, Burnaby NOW, July 13. My applause to Keith Baldrey for writing such an eloquent and down to the point article in regards to teachers’ negotiations. Two weeks off with pay for the death of a friend is absolutely unrealistic and absurd. What I wonder is: Is there going to be a cap in their working agreement to how many friends this applies to? Or are some of these teachers going to take a scholastic year off on the grounds that everyone that dies is one of his/her friends.

How can teachers expect the public to support them in the case of a strike? Unions are absolutely necessary. We all should be thankful for what they have done through the years so that we can now enjoy the benefits of the workplaces. That said, however, for any union to be that unrealistic and out of touch with the real world not only angers people but gives other unions a bad reputation. I also agree with Mr. Baldrey that the $300,000 pension to David Hahn, head of B.C. Ferries, is outrageous. We all deserve to retire with a comfortable income , but let’s be serious: a $300,000 pension? Now we know why the government is pushing so hard for the HST.

Group in a time warp

Dear Editor:

As a lifelong resident of Burnaby, I have been watching with great interest the fight that the members of the Parents’ Voice have been picking with the Burnaby school board. Is it only me, or do the rest of you find rather frightening the opinions which the members of Parents’ Voice have been voicing. It is as if Burnaby is in a time warp, and we have been catapulted back into the 1950s Alabama. With all seriousness, I would like to thank the Burnaby NOW for providing Parents’ Voice with a venue to express their views. This has allowed the citizens of Burnaby an opportunity to see who these individuals are, what they stand for, and to remember them if they decide to field a slate of candidates in the upcoming municipal election.

Budget: Money headaches continued from page 6

The remaining $1.4 billion represents the money expected to be lost over a couple of years after the HST disappears. That’s because the HST brings in significantly more revenue to government than the old provincial sales tax. In fact, the HST was around for just nine months of the last fiscal year (which ended last March 31) and resulted in contributing several hundred million dollars in unanticipated revenue for the government. By the way, this last point is why I think people are fooling themselves if they think their personal finances will vastly

improve if the HST disappears. Falcon says he can deal with that $3-billion hole, but he’s signalled one way to soften the blow: revisit the things that were exempt from the PST if we go back to the old tax system. So don’t bet that restaurant meals, to use just one example, will once again be exempt from the PST. Everything is back on the table when it comes to any exemptions, as the government will likely seek ways to boost revenue from the PST, and an easy way to do that is to simply make more things taxable. The potential headaches flowing from getting rid

of the HST are one thing, but what really has Falcon spooked are the external events happening around the world. As we saw in the 2008 recession, no government is immune from the external machinations of the world economy if they are large enough. Falcon admits that two per cent growth projection for this year may actually prove to be too lofty if things really tank. If that worst-case scenario does indeed occur, Falcon will go from being a nervous finance minister to a panicstricken one. Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global B.C.

Festival celebrates Fijian culture Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Burnaby may be a long way from the island nation of Fiji, but local residents can get a taste of the culture this weekend. The annual Fiji Festival is on Saturday, July 23, at Swangard Stadium, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. “Basically, you wear your flower shirts and your lei, and your Polynesian, Fijian attire, and you come the festival, and it’s like back home,” said Regina Prakash, one of the organizers. Prakash is expecting more than 3,000 people to attend. “Because the event has grown so much, this is the third event at

Swangard,” she said. The festival includes community performers, singers, a soccer tournament, a fashion show and food. There are also two tickets to Fiji, courtesy Air Pacific, up for grabs through a raffle. Fiji’s top rugby player, Waisale Serevi, will also be there. The festival will open with a yaqona ceremony. “In Fiji, when there is any special event, the chief will honour the guests by serving them a cup of this yoqona drink,” Prakash explained. Yaqona, also known as kava, is a type of pepper plant whose dried roots have a sedative effect. “It tastes like mud water,” Prakash added, laughing.

To kick off the event, the chief will offer the yaqona drink to local dignitaries who are expected to attend, including various MLAs, Mayor Derek Corrigan and seniors in the Fijian community. Prakash’s father, Vincent Prakash, is the festival founder and producer of Jai Fiji TV Productions, a 30-minute program on the Shaw Multicultural Channel. Vincent puts on the event every year with help from his wife and family. Regina also extended a special thanks to all the sponsors – especially the City of Burnaby, local newspapers and volunteers. Money raised from the festival goes to Save the Children projects in Fiji.

City earns honours for new computer system Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

The City of Burnaby received the Portal of the Year Award from the Americas’ SAP Users’ Group for its Systems Applications and Products software, also known as SAP. Burnaby launched its SAP system in 2007, with the focus on using a single technology for business applications. “Our goal was to streamline service delivery,” said Pat Tennant, the city’s project sponsor, in a press release. “SAP has enabled us to maximize the efficiency of our internal service-delivery processes. Along with the Virtual City Hall which we are currently developing, in future, SAP will also enable easy access, via the city’s website, to information and e-business services for citizens.” Mayor Derek Corrigan called the award “a significant honour.” Tennant and Bindu Tailor, manager of ERP training for the city, presented the award at the June 27 council meeting. “It recognizes that the City of Burnaby is doing an exemplary job of maximizing the value of its SAP system through its innovative application of the technology,” Corrigan said. “It speaks to that fact that we are achieving our goal of maximizing

service-delivery efficiency for Burnaby citizens.” But the portal was not without controversy, as Telus backed out of its contract to install it in 2006, costing the city more than expected for the installation, independent assessment and legal fees. While the last estimate for the installation had increased from $3.9 million in 2005 to $19.8 million by 2008, there were additional costs such as an independent assessment on the project by APT Business Sciences Inc, for $106,000. Telus settled with the city in 2010, with compensation and savings that could exceed $8 million, according to a press release from the city last spring. The portal is the central gateway to key city systems such as finance, purchasing, human resources, payroll and maintenance management. The group that gave the award is a 100,000-member, professional association of North and South American business and technology professionals. Other finalists for the award included Moen Inc. and Colgate-Palmolive. In addition to receiving the Portal of the Year Award, the city received honorable mention in the 2011 education best practices category in the SAP Awards.

Funds raised from the June, 2011 campaign will support scientists and clinicians at the Vancouver Prostate Centre. This team of some of the brightest research minds in Canada has been studying the molecular and cellular events involved in the process whereby cancers become resistant to hormone withdrawal therapy of prostate cancer patients. They have found that a protein called the “androgen receptor” is critical for this type of treatment resistance and that by eliminating this protein they can cause many tumours to die. Recently, they have had an exciting breakthrough discovery of an entirely new class of drugs that can effectively inhibit, and in some cases, eliminate this protein. With the support of Prostate Cancer Canada and Safeway, they can continue to focus exclusively on further developing this promising research. On behalf of the research community, thank you for helping in the fight against prostate cancer.

about his wife, saying that he’s not entirely sure she does all this because she loves him, but because she doesn’t have the energy to train someone else to be her husband. “I’m not sure you’re trained yet,” Bridgette Taylor replied as the crowd laughed. Taylor said he sent his final officer-in-charge note to his team last Monday and the theme there was simple and one he wanted to reiterate on Monday afternoon. “I just want to say thank you and farewell,” he said. “It’s been an honour and a privilege to work with and for you. Thank you all. “We will see you soon.” For more pictures of Taylor’s going-away party at the Hilton on Monday, go to the photo galleries section at www.burnaby now.com.

thus far, if they are not able to secure new funding. Roy Thorpe, spokesperson for Fraser Health, said that while the application was only late by a brief period of time, the request for proposals required a specific deadline. The health authority put out the request in April after reviewing mental health services in Burnaby and assessing where there were duplicate services, or services missing, as in North Burnaby, he said. The entire amount of funding, plus other program funding, will be going to a new Canadian Mental Health Association clubhouse that will open in September, he said. The $400,000 annual contract will fund a full-time rehabilitation and recovery-focused clubhouse program, according to a press release from Fraser Health.

A life in art: Susan McCallum – seen here superimposed against one of her own watercolour backgrounds – created artwork that served as the visual backdrop for a television production that recently won top honours in its category at the Banff World Media Festival.

One local artist put paintbrush to paper to green screen for a children’s show that follows the story of two Tlingit aboriginal warriors travelling the Northwest coast in search of an artifact. Burnaby resident Susan McCallum garnered international distinction at the Banff World Media Festival last month for her involvement in the Yukon television production, Anash and the Legacy of the Sun-Rock. “I designed the artwork and helped create a world,” McCallum said in a phone interview with the Burnaby NOW. “It’s shot in front of a green screen.” McCallum provides the watercolour paintings and ships them to the animation company based in Edmonton, where they are transformed into the special effects and displayed on the green screen the actors perform in front of while shooting. “They do a fantastic job of special effects,” she said, of the Edmonton company, Rat Creek Design. “It looks so realistic.

Business Roundtable Marks Milestone in the Fight to End Homelessness

Burnaby Board of Trade members and local community leaders attended the business roundtable meeting to tackle the issue of homelessness in Burnaby MICHAEL KELLER michael@bbot.ca

Burnaby, BC – Over the past year the Burnaby Board of Trade, in consultation with numerous community partners and government bodies, has been working to address the issue of homelessness in Burnaby – a process that reached a significant milestone last month with the completion of a business roundtable meeting attended by some of Burnaby’s most prominent business executives, community leaders, and elected officials. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss how the local business community could be engaged in solving the issue. The BBOTs engagement with homelessness began as part of its commitment to a triple bottom line of

economic, social and environmental sustainability. Last September the BBOT presented a resolution to the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Surrey Board of Trade and the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce, which was successfully passed a short time later. Since the passing of the CCC resolution, the BBOT has been working to develop a ‘Made in Burnaby’ plan to address homelessness, an effort that has been generously funded to date by Vancity Community Foundation and Metropolis at Metrotown . Under the umbrella of its Social Development Committee, a Homelessness Reference Group was formed to work with consultants on the creation of a comprehensive see Business Roundtable, 2

Message from Paul Holden

It has been an exciting time for the Burnaby Board of Trade these last couple of months as we find ourselves in the midst of a very busy summer season. In recent weeks we have held our annual general meeting, co-hosted a members reception with other local chambers, reported on the HST referendum, and continued to grow our membership (just to name a few things). We have also made significant progress in our social development initiatives, hosting a business roundtable on homelessness last month with some of Burnaby’s most prominent business leaders Paul Holden, President & CEO and government officials, as well as establishing a new Immigrant Integration Subcommittee to continue our ongoing efforts to address employment barriers for internationally trained and educated new Canadians. Lately we have also been taking greater steps to connect with elected officials in our ongoing effort to bridge the gap between business and government at all levels. The BBOT strives to provide our members with unique access to policy makers from across the political spectrum, and in that spirit this month we will be hosting a luncheon with BC NDP leader Adrian Dix for a discussion on his views of the issues that face the people and businesses of British

Columbia. In addition, we have been meeting regularly with local MPs, MLAs, and Mayors from across Metro Vancouver to ensure our members have the most up to date information on the policies and decisions that affect them. I am also happy to announce as part of our free Boardroom Series, we are kicking off a three part Social Media for Small Business seminar presented by Business Centre Solutions. The first of the series, Getting Social for Small Business, will teach the fundamentals of successfully incorporating social media in a business environment and is perfect for the novice or beginner who’s unsure of where to start. Finally, I hope to see many of you at our annual charity golf tournament taking place in September in support of KidSport Burnaby. This year the tournament is being held at a new location – the beautiful Riverway Golf Course – and promises to be a terrific day. This is one of our most popular events of the year and it always sells out, so visit www.bbot.ca or call 604.412-0100 to register today. As always, I would like to thank you on behalf of the Burnaby Board of Trade for your continuing support, and I wish you the best of luck this business year. Sincerely,

Paul Holden President & CEO Burnaby Board of Trade

“An authoritative voice for the community.”

The Heat Is On

Summer has started to heat up in Burnaby, but for some people, there is no cause for celebration. Community members dealing with homelessness see the sun as a sign of danger instead of enjoyment, as it is impossible to avoid the harmful UV rays without shelter. There are many people in Burnaby who lack the resources to be able to protect themselves from the sun, to keep them cool and who are vulnerable to the health issues the sun can cause. When the temperature rises in the summer, people who are unprotected are at risk of sun stroke, dehydration, severe

sunburns, malnutrition, eye damage, blisters and sores on their feet and other issues that impact their wellbeing. Without access to showers and washrooms, keeping oneself cool and clean is a very difficult task. The Progressive Housing Society’s Homeless Outreach Program is requesting assistance from local Burnaby businesses to make sure those who are vulnerable get the necessary protection from the sun. The Homeless Outreach is a Burnabybased organization dedicated to providing valuable services to people dealing with homelessness and extreme poverty. In the five years this program has been active, the Outreach Staff have secured

The Truth about Your Group Benefits:

How Employee Group Insurance Plans are really priced ERIK SCHMIDT Schmidt & Funk Financial Services Ltd.

Erik Schmidt, Schmidt & Funk Financial Services Let’s face it insurance isn’t a favourite dinnertime conversation at most tables but it is highly valued and sought after benefit for many people. We’re talking about Group Benefits. Employees value their health and a dental plan above most other perks but is it really insurance? Or

is it just a company savings account from which to draw from when needed? Employee benefits plans are comprised of two categories; Pooled Benefits and Experience Rated Benefits. The Pooled Benefits comprise of items like your Life Insurance, Long Term Disability, and Out of Country Travel. The Experience Rated benefits are your Health, Dental, Drugs, Vision and Short Term Disability. Your Pooled Benefits make up the small part of your monthly bill and will cover events that could be catastrophic in nature, such as when an employee(s) dies or becomes disabled. Your Experience Rated benefits make up the larger part of your monthly bill and cover those events that are more repetitive and predictable. For example, employees generally go to the dentist every six months for a check up and will

housing for over 275 Burnaby residents. The main goal of the program is to engage with unsheltered community members and provide support services to help stabilize lives. Housing unsheltered persons is a big task, made even harder by weather conditions that create unhealthy, unhappy people. Progressive Housing Society is asking for donations of sunscreen, juice boxes, bottled water, sunglasses, portable nutrition (protein bars, fruit snacks etc.), lip chap, umbrellas, bug spray, clean white cotton socks, Band-Aids, gently used sandals, moleskins and hats. The objective of this community project is to collect enough of these supplies to ensure everyone is Burnaby is protected

throughout the summer. With support and assistance from the Burnaby Business community, together we can try to ensure protection from the sun, increased comfort, dignity and health for all people dealing with homelessness. For more information on this community project, the Progressive Housing Homeless Outreach Program or to organize a donation, please contact Lea at 604-522-9669 ext. 318.

renew their prescriptions every 90 days. Unknown to most, Insurers look at these two categories differently. For pooled benefits –the insurer ‘pools’ all their clients experience together to determine how much money they will need to pay all their life claims, LTD claims and other pooled benefits. When pricing your Experience Rated benefits, the insurer only looks at your company’s experience to calculate your price. In simple terms, after adding up all premiums and subtracting all your claims, the insurer assesses whether you left them enough to cover their profits and expenses. If you did not, the insurers’ view this deficit as if they just lent you money. Essentially they will put you on a payment plan over the next year in the form of higher premiums to cover your ‘debts.’ In many cases, the amount targeted to be left over with the Insurers’ can be as high as 35%. This means that your company is, in effect, paying them $35 to pay out $75 in claims. When you are a small business, all it can take is one

family using all of their annual dental allowance to increase the premiums for the entire group at renewal. The Chamber Plan is a unique program offered to the Burnaby Board of Trade members that can put stability in your Employee Benefit Premiums. Whether your have 1 employee or 50, the Chamber Plan pools your firm together with 25,000 other Boards and Trade and Chambers of Commerce members across Canada. Under this kind of structure, your employees can use their plan however they want- without worry about your company being singled out at renewal time.

The story of you HEALTHWISE

I

Dr. Davidicus Wong

n my last column, I wrote of the expectations and core beliefs about relationships that we each bring to our relationships. Influenced by the examples of our parents and the experience of previous relationships, this preprogramming can affect how you relate as a couple from the start. This is the backstory that each person brings to the relationship. One’s individual psychological and relationship history influences the telling of the couple’s story. Every couple has a story of their relationship. In long married couples, the story is often consensual; they agree on the main points; where they differ in the details is often a source of good-natured humour. When couples separate and divorce, their stories are often quite different. Each of course is a simplification of a complex history. For better or worse, these stories help us make sense of our lives. In cognitive therapy as it applies to marital counselling, we frequently recognize a turning point when one partner’s opinion of the other changes dramatically for the worst. The turning point could be perceived betrayal – through an affair, a forgotten anniversary or birthday, or a demonstration of bad behaviour. The lens with which the offending partner is viewed changes to the negative, and all that is said and done is interpreted in that negative light. The positives once seen in the other are filtered out. We can also lose sight of what we love in one another by allowing the busyness of the rest of our lives to take over. When we stop focusing on our primary voluntary relationship and allow the stresses of childrearing, finances, work and other relationships to intrude, we may experience fewer warm and positive moments together and appreciate one another less. Sit down together and tell the story of your relationship. No doubt you will differ in the details; every couple does. What qualities do you admire

most in one another? This question reminds us of how you felt when you first fell in love. How do you express love, affection, caring and friendship? This question allows each to express the love behind their actions and reminds the other that they are loved. It also allows each to express what they need to feel loved. Some of us need hugs, kisses and clear expressions of love on a daily basis; some show their love in more subtle and quiet ways. Often we don’t know how much we are really loved and appreciated. We leave much of the positive left unsaid. What can you do together to sustain and nurture your relationship? This question reminds us that we write our stories together. Success in a relationship requires a consensual desire to change and work together for shared happiness. When one or both of

you is unhappy, personal unhappiness becomes the focus of your attention, and it is easy to fall into the trap of seeing the other as the cause of your unhappiness – your opponent rather than your partner. When we see one another as key to our greater happiness in the co-creation of a loving and harmonious home, we recognize our shared responsibility and consensual devotion to our relationship. In upcoming columns and in my blog at davidicuswong.wordpress. com: more on improving how we relate and communicate in marriage and other significant relationships. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a physician and writer.

TASTE

Da Mario still family-friendly restaurant THE DISH

T

Alfie Lau

hree years ago, I took my sisters for a family meal at Da Mario Ristorante Italiano in North Burnaby. It was one of the last chances for the three of us to have a quiet meal without significant others, children, parents and friends. Since that time, a new niece has arrived, one of my sisters has moved, albeit even closer to me, and I’ve continued travelling so much that rare is the time when all three of us are available for a meal together. I wrote about that meal for The Vancouver Sun, and it remains one of my favourite restaurant review stories because of the company and the food.

When I went to visit Mario and Isabella Basile on a recent sunny summer afternoon, I was welcomed with open arms at one of North Burnaby’s favourite eateries. The Basiles have operated the restaurant on Capitol Hill for more than 13 years, and everything Mario learned in the 24 years prior to that at other fine Italian eateries in Vancouver and Richmond is on full display at the cozy Hastings Street spot. Take, for example, the homemade pasta sauce that Mario makes every three or four days. He had just finished making a batch and was putting it into the fridge. “I make it from scratch, and the secret is I let it marinate for at least a day before I serve it,” said Mario. “It’s my own special recipe.” When I asked him what he puts in his sauce, Mario is loath to reveal his secret ingredients.

ADM RAL P U B & G R I L L

“I put lots of good stuff in there,” he said with a wink and a smile. The sauce sure was tasty when Isabella brought out their rigatoni lunch special – $7.99, an unbeatable price Mario has kept for the past decade, but he is contemplating a small price increase soon. I can taste pork, veal and mushrooms in the slightly spicy tomato sauce, and while I’m sure there are other great ingredients in the sauce, Mario’s secret will remain a secret for a bit longer. I’m also salivating when another diner has the baked cannelloni cosentini ($12.95 for a dinner serving). Mario makes the tube pasta himself, and it’s one of the best in the city. Even a known carnivore like myself appreciates the spinach and ricotta filling. Another dish that I love at Da Mario is the gnocchi paesani ($12.95 for a dinner portion). The homemade potato dump-

lings are the favourite dish of Burnaby Coun. Pietro Calendino, who told me that’s a dish he always orders for out-of-town guests. Mario Basile isn’t the only Mario at Da Mario, as one of his lunchtime waiters is longtime friend Mario Turco. Turco used to run his own restaurants but just couldn’t stay away from the business. “We speak the same language,” Turco said when asked why he came back to work for Basile. “I work a little in the afternoon, and I can get away fishing.” It’s that sense of family and friendship that will always make Da Mario a great place for a meal. Isabella works the front room, and there aren’t many faces she forgets. While the couple tried to get their three children into the family business, working the long, hard Da Mario Page 19

Da Mario: Making the most of it hours of a small businessperson wasn’t that appealing. The passion Mario and Isabella have for their business extends to what they consider their favourite dishes. “We love everything on the menu,” said Isabella. “I think people keep coming back because of the quality of the food. Everything’s homemade, and there’s nothing on the menu we wouldn’t eat ourselves,” adds Mario. As for the family atmosphere, Mario and Isabella take the trouble to say hi to all their customers. “We’re a restaurant for

everybody,” he said. “I like to think of all my customers as family.” Da Mario Ristorante Italiano is at 5601 Hastings St. It’s open 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for lunch (Tuesday to Friday), 5 to 10 p.m. for dinner, until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, closed Mondays. For more info, call 604294-1121. ◆ Alfie’s Da Mario Dining Tips ◆ The stars of the hot appetizer menu are the oysters in a tangy tomato sauce ($7.95) and the smelts pan-fried with eggs and flour ($7.50). The oysters are fresh and tasty,

while the smelts, which are a hard dish to cook well, are a Da Mario specialty. ◆ The smoked salmon ($8.25) is refreshingly good, while the best deal comes from the large tiger prawns ($7.25). ◆ The seafood linguine ($17.50) is the priciest item on the pasta menu, but it’s well worth it. It comes with clams, scallops and shrimp. Mario said it’s probably two pounds of seafood if you count the shells. ◆ I would be remiss if I didn’t recommend the osso bucco, which comes in either a veal shank or lamb shank for $17.95.

MacKinnon, riding for Team H&R Block, bested a top field of 80 riders in the men’s 55-kilometre criterium in a final sprint down Hastings that resulted in an exciting photo finish. MacKinnon, a former Pan American Games track champion, outpedalled Bailey McKnight of Team Red Truck Racing, by a wheel at the finish in a time of 72:51 minutes. “I didn’t know if I could sprint or not,” MacKinnon said after the race. MacKinnon, who won the gold medal in the 1km time trial in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 2006, used his track savvy to edge the field. “Definitely, I lived in White Rock and trained in Burnaby (velodrome) four times a week. That track is like my second home. Definitely Burnaby has been good to me,” said MacKinnon, who is contesting his first year back on the road in seven years. MacKinnon was part of a second six-man group of riders that successfully broke away from the pack by lap 15 and built up a 20-

But with two laps to go McKnight led a further break, along with eventual third-place finisher Justin Kerr of H&R Block, American Reid Mumford and German rider Dominik Roels, who finished well back at the finish. But with the pack closing quickly on the leaders, MacKinnon found his opportunity and took it.

“Today would be the highlight of the season,” MacKinnon said. “It’s been getting better. We’re looking forward to White Rock.” After a top-10 finish in the road race at the Tour de Delta on July 11, MacKinnon finished fifth in the hill climb in White Rock last weekend. Local rider, Scott Laliberte, a former world masters track champion,

raced in his fourth Giro di Burnaby, winning two race preems and finishing in 41st place. In the 20-lap women’s 37km criterium, Garnet and Local Ride Racing’s Jenny Lehmann led an usual breakaway after just the fourth lap and held on to finish first and second, respectively. TogetherwithLehmann, Garnet, a junior national time trial champion, built

up more than a minute lead over the women’s pack by the midway point and were in no danger of being caught. Garnet then left Lehmann behind with three laps to go to finish alone in first place in a time of 54:50. Red Truck teammate Karlee Gendron, bronze Giro Page 21

Lakers upset national No. 1 New Westminster Tom Berridge sports editor

The Burnaby Lakers pulled off a major upset in the Western Lacrosse Association last week. The unheralded senior A Lakers knocked off the No. 1-ranked team in the country, beating the New Westminster Salmonbellies 9-8 at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Friday. The Lakers’ win left Burnaby in sole possession of fifth place in a tightly contested league that will likely go down to the final week to sort out final playoff positioning for all but the league-leading Golf Burnaby

Salmonbellies. Just the day before, Burnaby fell behind the ‘Bellies 7-1 at Queen’s Park Arena before pulling up their socks in the final period in an 8-4 loss to New Westminster. The Lakers got off to another slow start at home, falling behind 2-0 but quickly rallying in the middle period to tie the game on Peter McFetridge’s first of two counter-attack goals. Burnaby then took the lead off the ensuing faceoff on Calvin Craig’s hat trick marker and held on to at least a share of that lead for all but a couple of minutes in the third.

“It’s good to see what we can do in 40 minutes. We had confidence we could come out with a win,” said McFetridge, who was dealt to the Lakers in an earlier preseason trade for the rights to Burnaby’s No. 1 draft pick Kevin Crowley. “That’s the biggest thing. We had confidence we can actually come back.” Tied 5-5 heading into the final frame, New West stole back the lead on Martin Cummings’ second goal of the game from the left crease, this time on a great setup from Salmonbellies’ third star Jeff Zywicki. But Burnaby struck back quick-

ly on Colton Clark’s first of two in the period on a power play. McFetridge then put the Lakers back into the lead on a transition goal after a great reaction save from rookie keeper and second star Dan Lewis on Jordan McBride. Lewis, who had another strong start in the Burnaby net, stopped 35 shots for his fourth win of the season. Craig was named the game’s first star, with a game-high three goals and four points. “I know this was a big moment Lakers Page 21

Girls’ nationals come to New West Three girls on Burnaby’s provincialgold-medal-winning bantam lacrosse team will be headlining Team B.C. at the 2011 national girls’ lacrosse championships in New Westminster, beginning Saturday. B.C.’s bantam team will also have six girls from the host New Westminster association on the provincial squad. The midget girls’ nationals, held in conjunction with the bantam tournament, will take place at the same time at Queen’s Park Arena from Saturday, July 23 to Thursday, July 28. New Westminster dominated this year’s B.C. team with seven selections named to the rep side. This year, four provincial representative teams, including Alberta, Ontario and Team Atlantic, will take part in both the bantam and midget championships. Iroquois Nation was a late withdrawl. Tournament director Jamie Stewart said lacrosse fans will see Canada’s summer sport played just the way it is supposed to be played. “These girls can pass and catch just as well as the boys, and the goaltending is fantastic,” Stewart said, adding most of the girls have grown up with lacrosse sticks in their hands. “(The games) will be high-paced, especially the B.C. Ontario games. I suspect it will be run and gun.” The medal games for both divisions will be played on Thursday, beginning with the bronze medal bantam game at 11 a.m. The midget bronze matchup will follow at 12:30 p.m. The gold-medal finals are scheduled to begin with the bantam division at 2:15 p.m. The midget final will be a 3:45 p.m. start. Closing ceremonies will take place following the championship final games at 5:30 p.m.

GOLF

Local an all-star

Junior 2nd at OK stop Lucas Gatto of Burnaby finished second at junior golf’s first tournament of the season in the Okanagan. Gatto carded back-toback even-par 72s to finish one stroke shy of the boys’ 14-to-16 division winner David Guterson of Calgary at the Maple Leaf Tour stop at the Harvest Golf Club in Kelowna on July 16. Guterson blazed to the top in the opening round with a four-under-par 68, but managed to keep ahead of Gatto despite a threeover-par round on the final day. Guterson went on to beat 17-year-old Jordan Hoodikoff in a six-hole playoff to win an exemption into the Texas Junior Golf Tour Holiday Classic in Austin, Texas. Gatto, who placed 10th at the recent B.C. junior golf championships, won a closest-to-the-pin prize in his age group. Next stop on the tour is the 54-hole Odlum Brown Classic at the Northview Golf Club in Cloverdale from July 25 to 27.

medallist in Delta earlier in the week, came third again. “(Lehmann and I) worked very well together and my teammates did a good job keeping it together,” said Garnet after the race. “I haven’t done so well, so it was nice to have a change of luck and have

a good race.” The Red Truck women’s team had dominted Superweek up to the Giro, taking first overall after the three stages in Delta and a first and third place in the inaugural race at UBC. “Our team has been doing really well in Superweek. It’s good to keep it going,” Garnet

added. The weather also cooperated after a downpour threatened the race earlier in the afternoon. But by racetime the 1.85-kilometre course along a stretch of Hastings and Albert streets had dried out and the sprinkles stayed away until just minutes after the final presentations were made.

Burnaby’s Kelsey Haberl was named to the 2011 Canadian Open Fastpitch all-star team on July 15. The first-base for the Canadian national team averaged .381 at the plate and was error-free in the tournament. Haberl, a junior at Simon Fraser University, was the only Canadian team member selected to the all-star squad.

for the team and for me,” McFetridge said, referring to Burnaby’s first two games against the ‘Bellies. “I won’t lie, it was emotional to be back in Queen’s Park (on Thursday) and being on the opposite end of the floor. I wasn’t sure how I’d react. But going into the game and having confidence that we can beat them was huge.” The proof came later in the third period after New West’s Sean Robinson knotted the contest at 77 with his second of the game midway through the period. But Trevor Moore countered for Burnaby with a sweeping low shot off a screen that fooled Matt Roik. Clark then tallied the game-winner on a nice cross-floor pass from

Dane Stevens at 16:58. But Burnaby did not get away without some collateral damage. Defenders Owen McNabb, with an injured ankle, and Mike Brascia, with a hamstring, both had to be helped from the floor in the third period. But McFetridge said it’s all about going forward from here on in. “For us to be where we’re at. … it’s just a great show,” he said. “We’re not focussing on what we’re doing wrong, but building on what we’re doing right.” With just three games left in the regular season and both Maple Ridge and Nanaimo within a point of Burnaby for the fourth-and-final playoff spot, every point will be crucial. The Lakers are in Victoria on Friday.
