New Democrat MPs take aim at gas costs Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Local MP Peter Julian wants the government to move faster to protect Canadians from paying too much at the gas pumps. Julian was critical of inaccurate measurements from gas pumps, causing Canadians to pay an extra $20 million for gas annually. “We think this is completely unfair to Canadian consumers,” he said from a Burnaby gas station on Tuesday. “We’re
saying the government should be taking action immediately.” Julian was flanked by Windsor West MP Brian Masse, who is spearheading a campaign to raise awareness of the problem. “There’s an old saying: You get what you pay for. But apparently that doesn’t apply in this industry,” Masse said. Since 1999, gasoline consumers have been overcharged roughly $240 million. According to the two MPs, the federal government has been aware of the problem since 2007. On average, consumers
are charged five to seven per cent extra on gas. It’s not clear who is miscalibrating the machines because there’s not enough oversight, Julian said. The campaign includes a petition calling for a return of the overcharged $240 million. Julian and Masse also took issue with the government’s plan to wait a year while industry comes up with better ways to self regulate. They also criticized provisions in a government bill that allow gas companies to recover the costs of increased inspections
by passing the costs on to consumers. The MPs want a new “gas and oil ombudsman” to keep an eye on the problem, and increased inspections from Measurement Canada, the federal body charged with ensuring the integrity and accuracy of measurement in the Canadian marketplace. The petition is available on Julian’s website, and the MPs plan to present it in Ottawa in September.

Layton’s departure a blow to NDP, prof says Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Jack Layton, leader of Canada’s official Opposition, has stepped down after test results showed he has more cancer, and SFU public policy professor Doug McArthur is calling it a real blow to the NDP. “He’s been the focus point, he’s provided the leadership,” McArthur said. “People like him personally. They liked the way he worked hard and spoke to the issues.” McArthur said it would be difficult for the party if Layton were not able to continue forward. In a July 25 statement, Layton announced he would step aside as leader of the federal New Democrats and focus on his health. Layton was already battling prostate cancer, but test results have detected a new kind of cancer. “In the closing days of the most recent session of the House of Commons, I suffered from some stiffness and pain,” Layton wrote. “After the House rose, I undertook a series of tests at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto. My battle against prostate cancer is going very well. My PSA (prostate-specific antigen) levels remain virtually undetectable. However, these tests, whose results I received last week, also indicate that I have a new, non-prostate cancer that will require further treatment.” Layton went on to say he was following doctors’ advice and is taking a temporary leave of absence as NDP leader. Nycole Turmel, an MP from Quebec, will be the interim leader, and Layton plans on being back on the job when Parliament meets on Sept. 19. Turmel is the national chair of the NDP’s Parliamentary caucus. “If I have tried to bring anything to federal politics, it is the idea that hope and optimism should be at their heart,” Layton wrote.
“I am hopeful and optimistic about the personal battle that lies before me in the weeks to come.” MacArthur said it’s too

lem. “The Liberals and the NDP are obviously in struggle to try to be the second party in the next election.
I’m sure the Liberals would feel more confident if they didn’t have to face Jack as the leader, but they’ve got troubles of their own.”

Mayor Derek Corrigan and Burnaby city councillors will each receive a raise of slightly more than three per cent for 2011. The decision was made by the council indemnity advisory committee and was approved by council at Monday night’s council meeting. The mayor’s pay works out to $78,355 for the basic indemnity amount, with $39,177 for his expense allowance, totalling $117,532. It is retroactive back to January 2011. Corrigan’s pay jump is a modest increase compared with last year’s 17 per cent jump, which was intended to bring his pay rate in line with the mayors of the other large cities in the Lower Mainland. The councillors’ raises bring each up to $45,368 for the year, with $30,245 for the basic indemnity and $15,123 for their expense allowance. The raise was determined using three market indicators. The committee used the 2010 Consumer Price Index for Vancouver, at 2.48 per cent; the 2010 average weekly wage increase in B.C., at 2.72 per cent; and the 2010 Canadian Union of Public Employees, Local 23, pay increase, at four per cent, to determine an average increase of 3.07 per cent. An indemnity review was announced earlier this summer, with any recommendations coming into force for the mayor and council following the November 2011 municipal election.
Temple holds picnic
Burnaby’s Hindu temple is hosting its annual picnic this weekend, and people of all faiths are invited to celebrate and enjoy a free vegetarian lunch. The picnic is Sunday, July 31, from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Burnaby Fraser Foreshore Park, at 4600 Byrne Rd. “We invite all communities to come and join the picnic. It’s like a social gathering,” said Pandit Sharad Chandra, the temple’s priest. About 700 to 800 people usually show up, he added. There will be tents set up, and a chance for people to sit and chant a holy prayer before breaking for a free lunch after noon. There will also be entertainment, singing, games, sporting events, face painting and prizes.

vote, the process of running a city is no doubt smoother, faster and more agreeable to those involved. But smooth, speedy and friendly does not necessarily equal healthy, representative and diverse. With politically opposed members sharing the council table, there’s bound to be plenty of arguing – some of it useless and pontificating, on both sides. But opposition is nonetheless a vital and fundamental component of democracy, at all levels. We’ve already had candidate
announcements from TEAM Burnaby, as well as news of the creation of a brand new civic slate by members of Parents’ Voice that would target Burnaby school board seats. We don’t believe in endorsing individual candidates or slates. But we can – and always will – endorse diversity in government. No one wants argument for the sake of argument, but dissent can provide fodder for healthy debate – and that has been in poor supply in Burnaby for the past three years.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Climate change issue still here Dear Editor:
Climate change is one of the key challenges of our time, but it seems to have dropped off people’s radar in the last year or so. Are people simply overwhelmed by the enormity of the issue, or have the big emitters of greenhouse gases managed to convince people that climate change isn’t happening? Maybe it’s a bit of both, and that’s truly unfortunate. Denying that climate change is happening is not going to make it go away. It will only make things worse in the long run. We need to recognize that climate change is

occurring and turn quickly to energy sources that don’t emit the greenhouse gases responsible for the problem. The signs that climate change is occurring are there for all to see. The coming century is going to be a crucial one for humankind, and if we hope to survive as a species we must make the change to energy sources that are clean, renewable and sustainable. We can rise to the challenge climate change and show ourselves to be the infinitely adaptable, clever species we’ve proven to be throughout history and pre-history. Or we can become the dodo birds of the twentyfirst century. The choice is ours, and I know which choice I will make. How about you? Pamela Gardner, Burnaby

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR New ‘home’ is great news
Attacks on group go too far
As a former board member, I offer my heartiest congratulations to the South Burnaby Neighbourhood House on the news that the 15-year-old social service agency will be moving into a brand-new, 12,000 square-foot facility, to be shared with other non-profit partners, adjacent to the Metrotown SkyTrain station. Burnaby’s first-ever Neighbourhood House has long outgrown its current storefront location on Imperial, not to mention its tiny, humble beginnings on Jubilee Avenue. The new building and central location will make the SBNH and its sister non-profits more efficient, convenient, accessible and visible for all who need the vital services they provide. With approximately 450 volunteers assisting full-time and part-time staff in delivering programs, such as school-age child care (at seven schools), Homework Haven, Friendship Club, Kids out of the Rain, summer day camps, student training, youth leadership and others, the South Burnaby Neighbourhood House is a Burnaby success story with a simple storyline: neighbours helping neighbours. Finally, kudos to the mayor and city council for working with the SBNH’s dedicated board and tireless executive director, Antonia Beck, to find a permanent home, which should be ready to open its doors by spring 2013 and lend an even bigger helping hand to Burnaby residents.
Two letters published by the Burnaby NOW (Online poster proud of partaking in violent gay bashing attack, July 22; Group in a time warp, July 20) have raised the level of attack against parents who request accommodation for their child’s freedom of conscience and religion to extreme levels. One letter writer implicitly links Charter Lau, a parent involved in the Parents’ Voice movement, to the violent comments placed by an unknown individual on an internet discussion board. This letter writer goes on to state that Mr. Lau is in favour of bullying children. A second letter draws links between these parents and the violent crimes committed during the racial wars in the US South during the ’50s. Parents who have repeatedly affirmed the need to protect all children from bullying, and who are concerned that the freedom of children to follow their moral and religious convictions is being violated by policies implemented by the Burnaby school board, are inexplicably being publicly tried and found guilty of crimes committed by unknown individuals and by individuals who were committing crimes before these parents were even born. These letters demonstrate that children with moral and religious convictions are in as much need of protection against bullying in the Burnaby public school system as are other vulnerable children.

Revolt: Will taxpayers fight back? continued from page 6
dwarf anything seen in the private sector, and therefore are much more expensive to pay for. Look for Cummins (and others) to zero in on this kind of issue in the months ahead. This is where things can get sticky for the NDP and the party’s supporters. A tax revolt, if it takes off, does no favours for the political left in this province. If governments are forced to cut spending (or reduce the rate of increase) rather than raise taxes or other fees, the ones who get squeezed the most are public sector employees and government programs (which often involve social programs). The NDP can always revert to raising taxes on businesses and cor-
porations, but that simply reinforces the lingering impression among some people that the party is anti-business, which is not a viable long-term political strategy. Cummins will continue to fan the flames of a tax revolt, and, as he does, he will build a public profile. When the election comes, he will no doubt steal votes from the B.C. Liberals, perhaps enough to give the NDP an election win. But Cummins could also eat into NDP support as well, drawing on anti-government voters who have sided with New Democrats in the past. If the anti-tax sentiments out there persist, they could end up making life miserable for whichever party forms govern-
ment – whether it’s the NDP or the B.C. Liberals. And that, in turn, could also prove disastrous for those whose paycheques are funded by taxpayers. ◆ It should be a nobrainer. This is why the government should speed up the process to reappoint MaryEllen Turpel-Lafond as this province’s independent children’s representative. The NDP wants her back, and presumably the B.C. Liberals do as well. So hopefully her reappointment doesn’t get bogged down in procedural bureaucracy. TurpelLafond is owed some quick certainty on this question. Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global B.C.

Attendance way up at Burnaby Village
But museum still faces challenges in recouping lost revenue after decision to make admission free Alfie Lau
Since going to free admission in May, the Burnaby Village Museum has seen attendance increases of 749 per cent for the first two months. But those numbers only tell half the story, as forgone revenues from paid admission are between $350,000 and $400,000 annually. Dave Ellenwood, the city’s director of parks, recreation and cultural services, told the Burnaby NOW that while he’s pleased with the huge attendance increases, the loss in admission revenues won’t be made up in increases in food services, gift shop sales and museum donations. “No, we don’t make it up,” Ellenwood said. “The (difference) will be funded from an operating surplus.” Ellenwood said city council challenged the parks, recreation and cultural services department earlier this year to increase attendance numbers at the museum, with the goal of turning the museum into a Lower Mainland attraction. In addition, the 40th anniversary of the museum was a cause for celebration. “We’re encouraged by the attendance numbers we have gotten so far. We hadn’t anticipated it would be this big, but now we have to build on it,” said Ellenwood. The figures Ellenwood refers to include an overall attendance of 29,916 in May and June, a 749 per cent increase from the same two months in 2010, when only 3,994 people went through the museum.
Also on the positive side of the ledger, the food services department reported a 213 per cent increase in the first two months, with almost $50,000 in sales, as compared to only $23,460 in 2010. Museum donations are up 127 per cent and gift shop sales are up 131 per cent. While admission to the museum is free, there is still a nominal charge to ride the historic carousel. Ellenwood did say these huge increases won’t be repeated in the next couple of months. “You get huge increases because you start at a low number,” he said. Ellenwood said 2010 figures show the museum generated approximately $320,000 in paid admissions, with another $40,000 in admission fees for groups such as schools. That’s money that’s not hitting department coffers as the museum tries to increase attendance levels. “We also spent about $40,000 more in marketing,” said Ellenwood. “We put out a very effective promotional campaign to tell the public we were going free. … I don’t anticipate we’ll have that (marketing) money next year, so we need to have word-of-mouth as a dominant way of getting our message out.” Ellenwood said some of the new features and attractions that have been looked at include a mini-golf putting course, which won’t go ahead this year, and the Royal Bank looking at the former branch that used to be on site and whether that can be resurrected in some form for the future. A real bakery and a general store are also ideas that have been thrown around. “There’s potential for a lot of things here,” he said. “Our challenge now is to progressively try to build up the attractions here and keep people coming back.” www.twitter.com/AlfieLau

Have you seen this chihuahua? They had their 60-inch flat-screen TV taken, their house is a ransacked mess – but all a Burnaby family really wants back after a break-in Friday night is Lily, their chihuahua. “We’re absolutely, completely heartbroken that Lily is gone. I’m dying not knowing where she is,” said 36-year-old mother and business owner Jenelle Ladret on Monday. She and her two daughters, aged 10 and 14, have begun an exhaustive search for their “priceless” teacup. Ladret, who owns and operates a smoothie, frozen fruit and Popsicle business at fairs and public gatherings, had brought her daughters with her to North
Vancouver’s Green Market Friday when, at 11 p.m., she saw she had multiple messages on her cellphone. It was a Burnaby RCMP officer telling Ladret her back door had been kicked in and her family’s possessions were strewn on the lawn. When the family returned home, their Boston terrier, Sheba, was in the back of a police car while Foxy, their chihuahua-terrier cross, had been put back into the home by a neighbour. But no sign of Lily. “Lily is an expensive little purebred chihuahua. They are like a high commodity among bad guys, I think. They could have kicked her or sold her. I don’t know at this point,” Ladret said.

Man killed in Canada Way crash
One man is dead after his car veered off a Burnaby road, slammed into a utility pole and tore in half early Saturday afternoon. The Burnaby RCMP were called to the stretch of Canada Way near Rugby Street at around 12:45 p.m. Saturday to find part of the car wrapped around the pole and other parts of the car strewn across the four-lane road. The man, who has not been iden-
tified, was pronounced dead at the scene. Burnaby RCMP Staff Sgt. Rob Lemon said the man’s car was headed westbound on Canada Way before it veered through two eastbound lanes and into the pole. The portion of Canada Way between Burris and Kensington was closed to traffic for several hours on Saturday as investigators worked to determine the cause of the crash.
Burnaby resident Manuel Borlinha said he was sitting in his house just off Canada Way early Saturday afternoon when he heard the car slam into the pole. “I knew exactly what it was when I heard it,” Borlinha said, adding that he’s seen dozens of crashes on the highway in the last 40 years. “But I haven’t seen too many like this.” – Niamh Scallan, Postmedia News

Sitar in the spotlight at MusicFest Burnaby resident set to perform in concert at Christ Church Cathedral Stefania Seccia staff reporter
An Indian classical sitar performer with an ear for other genres will be performing at the upcoming Music Fest Vancouver’s 11th season. Burnaby resident Mohamed Assani will have an authentic raga performance on Aug. 13 in Christ Cathedral Church at noon. “This is my first performance at MusicFest,” he said. “I was approached by the (artistic director) who had heard of me through someone. I’m really looking forward to it.” Born in Pakistan, Assani moved here from Leeds, England eight months ago and has been here ever since. “My wife is from Vancouver, and we have a four-year-old daughter, and we thought it would be a nice place for her to grow up,” he explained. “It’s a very beautiful place to live, and I find people very open here and welcoming.” Assani also adapts to different genres with his sitar, such as Western classical, jazz and world fusion. He’s also worked with contemporary composer Ian Wilson, the Callino Quartet, Grand Union Orchestra and the Black Dyke Brass Band. “I’ve also met a lot of international musicians here,” he said. Assani uses the emotive style for sitar, which strives to emulate the human voice through bending the strings. “I prefer the vocal style,” he said. “I was drawn to it and I do lots of improvisation. I’ve been playing for 13 years.” Also a music educator, Assani has taught at the Royal Academy of Music in London. He was also recently appointed by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra School of Music to teach sitar and tabla starting this September. Assani studied at Dartington College of Arts in England, where he obtained

degrees in Western classical and world music. “I’ve generally found people are very open here, musically as well” he noted. “I’ve met international musicians and experimented with new things, which I
also find very exciting.” His MusicFest performance will also mark the launch date of his new album, Spirit of Tradition. New Westminster vocalist and tabla performer Cassius Khan will join Assani
at the Aug. 13 concert. “It’s a nice venue, and I’m really looking forward to playing there,” he said. For more information about Assani and his music visit www.mohamedassani. com.
Burnaby actor part of teen Julius Caesar Take Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar and send it through a gritty, modern crime lens and what you get is this summer’s teen production from Carousel Theatre. Burnaby teen Isaac Li, 15, will be on stage with the production in his first time out with Carousel. This is Li’s first year with the Teen Shakespeare program, but not his first time on stage. He’s been with Vancouver Youth Theatre for a year-and-a-half, and recently performed in UBC’s Brave New Play Rites. He also sings, plays saxophone and fences. The Teen Shakespeare program at Carousel is celebrating its 21st year by
tackling the famous play with a modern mob-family drama spin. Teen actors aged 13 to 18 from across B.C. are taking part in the production, playing on the Performance Works outdoor stage on Granville Island. The show will run July 29 to Aug. 13, with a preview show on July 28 at 7:30 p.m. and July 29 at 2 p.m. All other shows Monday to Saturday run at 7:30 p.m., with matinees on Aug. 1, Aug. 6, and Aug. 13 at 2 p.m. Tickets are free, but advance reservations can be made at $5 per seat.

TASTE Healthy alternatives ON COOKING
n my last column, I supplied you, the readers, with a selection of no-cook recipes for kids of all ages to make with the intention of contributing to family meal preparation. Getting kids involved with food prep not only helps to create a special bonding time but also generates a sense of pride and anticipation of mealtime. In response to this column, an email was sent to the editor of one of the publications I write for. The main body was as follows: “I was so excited to flip the page this morning to read Chef Dez’s article on getting the kids involved in health and cooking. However, I’m at a loss for words after seeing the sweet and sour recipe calling for golden corn syrup, among sugar and mayo in the other recipes. In 2011 and with all the knowledge about the health dangers of crap ingredients like corn syrup, I cannot believe Chef Dez is contributing to the childhood obesity epidemic.” I do feel this needs to be addressed and responded to. First of all, the column the individual is referring to was in no shape or form, created to focus on “health.” My title is chef; not dietitian, nutritionist or doctor. This does not mean I am incapable of creating healthy recipes, but I chose to have a different focus for this particular column. I am merely making suggestions to give people alternatives to the storebought, preservative-laden, bottled junk they may be buying in the first place. While some of my food may contain some ingredients that are not the epitome of heath food, it is made fresh and from scratch. I am the father of four beautiful and healthy children (none of whom have weight problems), and eating a balanced diet is of utmost importance with our day-to-day meals. We also treat food as a celebration, however, and make sure that we interject with dishes that are considered splurges that are by no means meant to be eaten on a regular basis.
This is a big part of what parenting is about. When I am writing a column of this nature, I am also assuming that parents can make these types of decisions for themselves as well. I do commend the letter writer on the ability to recognize these ingredients as items of concern to them. This proves that they are educated in food and shows that they probably provide balanced diets for their children. If items in
a recipe are a concern, try swapping them out for a healthy alternative. For example, use honey rather than corn syrup or olive oilbased mayonnaise instead of regular. Recipes are not written in stone; they are opportunities for you to practise creativity. Thank you, and happy cooking. Send your food/cooking questions to dez@chefdez. com. Visit www.chefdez.com.

Get slugs under control Spot the QUARTERBACK GREEN SCENE
lugs arouse our hatred when they eat precious seedlings, but they also recycle dead plant materials and become food themselves for garter snakes, frogs, toads and some birds. Since they’re prolific breeders, controlling their damage is the most reasonable goal. Most at risk are tiny seedlings during their first few weeks. This is when one or two hungry slugs can destroy a whole crop in one night – especially if it’s been planted in a straight line. One of my favourite protections is sticky copper tape. Circling a band around a container of seedlings is effective protection, while for garden seedlings, bottomless plastic containers banded around with copper tape can be popped over susceptible plants. But I have found copper barriers most effective
when new and shiny. It’s best taken out of the garden when un-needed and stored in a dry place to use for the next batch of seedlings. Fence type copper barriers need frequent checking. Rain can open tunnels underneath while leaves of taller plants may form bridges over the top. Also, some slugs may be hiding in the soil when you install your copper fence. Polycarbonate juice containers, bottomless, with the tops removed and plastic mesh covering the opening make great slug protection when they’re pushed into the earth and are a mini-greenhouse at the same time. Substances intended to deter slugs include crushed eggshells, coffee grounds, grit, garlic and perlite (none of which worked for me). Diatomaceous earth seemed to do better, but it needs care to avoid inhaling it. Lime is reputed to work but must be redone if it rains. Sneaky tricks for slugs include slug saloons with beer in which slugs blissfully drown – these need to be cleaned out each day if you want to avoid
a truly disgusting experience. Some gardeners put out planks or grapefruit halves where slugs hide, are discovered and destroyed. But desperate gardeners may use non-toxic ferrous iron slug bait, salting or ammonia spray. But learning slug habits encourages gentler methods. Watering at night is like a party invitation to a slug. They tend to be territorial going back to the same feeding zone every night. But they don’t usually travel more than 100 feet for a meal (which gives gardeners an idea how far to trap-andrelease them). Slugs are hermaphrodites who mate, but can also be self-fertile. The result can be 300 eggs a year usually laid in groups of 10 to 20. Chickens enjoy eating slug eggs. Just one slug is worth welcoming into your garden: that’s the native black-and-yellow banana slug, a strikingly beautiful forest dweller whose main food interest is mushrooms. Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her by email, firstname.lastname@example.org.

It also improves balance and coordination and can help maintain a healthy body weight.To ensure that you’re not putting additional stress on your joints as you aim for that hole in one, The Arthritis Society recommends the following tips: • Use clubs with lightweight graphite shafts to help absorb shock better. • Build up the grip size on your clubs

with tape to help you hold them more easily. • Always stretch and warm up properly before you play. • Always use tees to avoid striking the ground and jarring your joints. • Use a softer ball with a higher spin rate. • Wear comfortable walking shoes or golf shoes without spikes.You may also want to wear cushioning in your shoes. • Take only the clubs you will use and pull your clubs on a cart rather than carrying them.

According to the Canadian Health Measures Survey, 54 per cent of those aged 60 to 79, have high total cholesterol levels and 53 per cent have high blood pressure. And in those aged 65 and older, 22.1 per cent of men and 14.8 per cent of women have diabetes. To help tackle those medical problems: Boost your fruit and vegetable intake. People over age 51 years need seven servings per day. Include more beans and legumes as well as higher ﬁbre grains such as whole grain bread, barley, oats, brown or wild rice, bran-based cereals and whole wheat pasta. Get enough calcium-and vitamin D-rich foods (consider supplements if needed).

Retirement that lives like a resort.™
1. Overcoming loneliness Have you ever noticed that, regardless of age, you often eat better when you are with family or friends than when you’re alone? The conversation around the dinner table can help overcome feelings of loneliness or boredom. Eating with others can also help ensure you are eating a wide variety of foods rather than getting stuck in a rut.You may also ﬁnd that social meals help boost your motivation to plan nutritious meals or eat comfort foods to overcome a loss of appetite. Social meals such as Sunday brunch or Friday night supper are a good time to cook extra for leftovers or, alternatively, just cook one component to a meal if it’s a potluck. If you are not able to cook your own meals, eating with friends or family can also help to improve the quality of your eating experience.
If you’re in your mid-70s and onward, you can boost the vitality and energy with which to enjoy your golden years by focusing on the following key areas. Some of the most common nutrition challenges:
calories shrink, you may be taking in less overall food, which can drop your ﬁbre intake. If your physical activity has decreased, you may be experiencing the discomfort of constipation. Be sure to keep as active as possible, since walking and other forms of physical activity keep your bowels regular. Drinking enough ﬂuids such as water, tea and milk also helps reduce constipation. Experts recommend an adequate intake for ﬁbre for people aged 70 years and up is 21 grams per day for females and for 30 grams per day for males. Foods rich in ﬁbre include bran-based cereals and other whole grains, beans and legumes, berries and other fruits or veggies, and nuts and seeds.

Chrysler: Safety, style and interior get top scores for new ‘revival’ sedan continued from page 21
well-known nameplates as Ford Fusion, Chevrolet Malibu, Honda Accord, Nissan Altima, and Toyota Camry. The transformation from Sebring to 200 was done in less than a year, which is a remarkable achievement in itself and one that should get the designers and engineers behind the new car huge credit. What’s even more impressive is that it was done with fewer people and the threat of financial collapse hanging over the company. The standard engine in the LX ($19,995) and Touring ($23,995) trim levels of the 200 is a 173horsepower, 2.4-litre, 16valve four-cylinder with variable valve timing. It’s a holdover engine that provides good lowr.p.m. torque and decent fuel economy, and is mated to an equally reliable, though a little dated, four-speed automatic. My test 200 sedan, however, came with the new 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine. Offering considerably more power, it can produce 283 horsepower and is mated to a six-speed automatic. Fuel economy is almost as good as the standard four-cylinder, and the V6 provides it in a silky smooth fashion. Standard on the Limited
($27,995) and S ($28,995) trim levels of the 200, the V6 engine is also an option on the Touring edition. Even the base LX edition of the 200 comes with a very good equipment package that includes a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, four-wheel disc brakes with an anti-lock system, remote keyless entry with a security alarm, power windows, locks and mirrors (heated) and air conditioning.
you’ll certainly understand why. Overall the interior is definitely superior. The use of soft-touch materials in key usage areas, the one-piece dash and increased use of accent lighting, such as light strips that highlight the centre console cup holders, provide a much richer ambience.
“What’s that classy looking new car you’ve got?” was my wife’s uncoaxed first impression after seeing it in the driveway. She also loved the finish and colour (a Blackberry Pearl Coat), which is a very dark metallic blue that looked black in low light conditions. The new styling is a major change in direction from last year’s Sebring, yet it was cleverly done without changing the doors or the main cabin, which helped keep costs in line. The all-new front and rear, however, give it a completely different look.
Not just a new interior, but an upgraded interior was a top priority for the 200. If you own or have driven a Sebring (it’s a popular rental fleet car)

The 200 sedan has already been recognized as a Top Safety Pick based on crash testing performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. An electronic stability control (ESC) system, however, is not standard with the base LX trim, but it is an option (as is the
six-speed automatic transmission). ESC is recognized as an important active safety feature that can save lives and is included as standard with all other trim levels of the 200.
Chrysler’s revival doesn’t hang on the suc-
cess of the 200, but it could be a surprise hit in the company’s all-new product line. A refined mid-sized touring sedan, the 200 is a pleasure to drive and cradles its passengers from the imperfections of the highway. editorial@ burnabynow.com

It’s all coming down to the wire in WLA Tom Berridge
Parity in the Western Lacrosse Association is going to put a big damper on at least three senior A clubs this year. With the final week of the regular season soon to unfold, the possible final scenarios for all seven teams are too many to mention. Suffice to say that all but the New Westminster Salmonbellies and Victoria Shamrocks are fighting for their playoff lives. Even the Langley Thunder, which currently enjoys third place with 16 points to date, is not out of the woods just yet. In fact, with two games left against the suddenly recharged Coquitlam Adanacs, the Thunders playoff prospects don’t seem like such a sure thing. What is even less sure is the final placement of the Burnaby Lakers. The senior Lakers finished at the bottom of the table tied with Langley last year, both with 6-12 records. The Lakers could end the regular season with close to those same numbers despite showing a lot more promise and competitiveness this summer. That’s the irony of this most interesting of WLA seasons. With just 13 points to date and two games left to play, it is extremely doubt-
ful that a win Friday night at home against the Maple Ridge Burrards will be enough to secure a berth for the Lakers into the ensuing playoff round. That means that Burnaby will have to pull off what two week’s ago would have seemed the near-impossible – beating the leagueleading Salmonbellies. Suddenly, after a 9-8 victory over the nationally No. 1 ‘Bellies at home a week earlier, and coupled with the Adanacs’ decisive win over New West last week, a series win over the 24-time Mann Cup champs doesn’t seem so challenging – or does it? With just a threepoint lead on the secondplace Shamrocks, New Westminster cannot afford to give up any more points to Victoria, which finishes up its schedule with backto-back games on the Island against Nanaimo. Stay tuned. The first piece to the puzzle will unfold on Wednesday when the Adanacs visit the Langley Civic Centre. Burnaby then moves into Queen’s Park Arena on Thursday for its biggest test of the season. The following night, the Lakers will play host to the Burrards in a must-win contest. The suspense could drag out to Sunday, when the Salmonbellies and Burrards end the WLA season in Maple Ridge.
Larry Wright/burnaby now
A good start: Burnaby’s Xenia Dumont slows up an Alberta runner in B.C.’s opening 9-2 win at the Canadian bantam girls’ lacrosse championships at Queen’s Park Arena Sunday. Finals start on Thursday.
Goalie to Canada’s u-18 selection camp Kimberly Newell of Burnaby was one of 40 players, including just four goalies, to be invited to the selection camp for Canada’s national women’s under-18 hockey team. The camp will take place at the Canadian International Hockey Academy in Rockland, Ont. from Aug. 7 through 14. At the selection camp, a team of 22 players will be chosen for a threegame mini series against the United States on Aug. 18, 19 and 21. Following the series, Hockey Canada scouts and team coaching
staff will continue to evaluate players through their 2011-12 league seasons in preparation to chosing Canada’s national team at the 2012 International Ice Hockey Federation u-18 world championships in the Czech Republic in January. Newell, who played goal for the Tier 2 league runner-up Burnaby Winter Club midget A1 boys’ team last season, was one of just three B.C. skaters named to the camp squad. The other two B.C. skaters invited to the camp were defender Jordan Krause and forward Julia McKinnon,
both of Kelowna.
U-16 invited to camp
Nicolas Bruyere of Burnaby made the 34-player shortlist for B.C. Hockey’s under-16 provincial camp. Burnaby Winter Club’s Victor Dombrovskiy also earned a spot on defence following the evaluation camp in Penticton. The players will continue to be evaluated through the season with a final roster to be announced in time for the Western Branch Challenge in Moose Jaw, Sask. Oct. 27 to 30.
Burnaby Minor to host AAA provincials Tom Berridge
Burnaby Minor Baseball will be hosting both the AAA mosquito and single A peewee provincial championships on back-to-back weekends at Kensington Park. The provincial tournament for 10- to 11-year-old mosquito players will begin on Thursday, July 28 with opening ceremonies taking place at 5:30 p.m. A skills competition will follow the opening. Seven of the 10 teams have been decided, including Cloverdale and Abbotsford from the Lower
Mainland. Vernon, Kamloops, Prince George and Victoria have also already claimed provincial berths. Round-robin games run all day Friday and Saturday at Kensington, with crossover playoffs and final medal games on Sunday, July 31. The gold-medal final is scheduled for 2 p.m. The peewee A provincials will be held on the following weekend from Aug. 4 to 8, also at Kensington Park. The peewee opening ceremonies will take place on Aug. 5. Burnaby Minor is no stranger
to the B.C. minor baseball championships. Last season, six boys off this season’s peewee all-star team went to the mosquito provincial finals in Rutland, taking home the silver medal against Kelowna. In 2009, the Burnaby Braves went all the way to the Canadian national bantam championships. The last time Burnaby Minor hosted a provincial final was in 2006. At the association’s Summer Fun tournament last weekend, Burnaby lost by one run to Delta in the final of the AAA mosquito
division final. “Burnaby has always been a force. We’ve always been really close and able to develop very competitive teams,” said Elise Ferguson, volunteer co-ordinator with the Burnaby association. “It’s going to be fun.” Volunteers are always needed for these kinds of special events, including help with groundkeeping, concessions, scoring and pitch counters, Ferguson added. Anyone interested in helping out, including seniors, is asked to email elise@burnabyminorbase ball.com.

Lakers lose tough one on the Rock
Burnaby soccer players Adriano Clemente, Alexander Lazazzera, Mark Baldisimo and Jefferey Ramen helped Team B.C. bring back a bronze medal from the Nutrilite All-Star Canadian Soccer Association national championships in Newfoundland on July 23. B.C. edged Alberta 1-0 in the consolation final in the under-16 boys’ division. Ellis Parker and Daniel Pervan of Burnaby were both members of B.C.’s u-15 boys’ squad that placed fifth overall at the week-long competition. Clemente, Lazazzera, Baldisimo, Ramen and Parker were also named to the B.C. team that will take part at the Canada Western Summer Games in Kamloops next month.
Tom Berridge sports editor
The Burnaby Lakers fought the good fight, but were overwhelmed by the Victoria Shamrocks 11-6 under a 66-shot barrage in Western Lacrosse Association play Friday. Burnaby took a 6-5 lead into the third period following a pair of late goals by Dane Stevens less than 30 seconds apart to end the middle frame. “We were just unfortunate,” said Burnaby head coach Bob Johnston. Playing with four players from its back end missing through injury, Burnaby simply ran out of gas, added Johnston. “The feeling was pretty good. It was quiet confidence. It was nice to see.” But Victoria replied with six unanswered tallies in the final stanza, including an empty-net goal by Andrew Suitor in the last three minutes of play. Rookie Burnaby goalie Dan Lewis was Burnaby’s game star with 55 saves in the Burnaby net, while facing 48 shots in the final two periods, including 27 in a 5-4 Lakers’ second period. “Lewis was worth the price of admission. He had a great game,” Johnston added. Matt Quinton led the Lakers in scoring with one goal and two assists, all coming in the middle frame. The win dropped Burnaby into sixth place in league standings with two games left to play this week. “If you win, you’re in. That’s the name of the game. It’s pretty tough for sure. We have to score, Lewis can only do so much,” Johnston said. Burnaby will cross WLA Page 25

Burnaby teen wins women’s Stanley Park Open Katerina Boiko of Burnaby upset top seed Monica Neveklovska in the final of the 80th Stanley Park Open tennis championships Sunday. Boiko, the fifth seed, overcame a slow start to knock off her West Vancouver opponent 5-7, 6-4, 7-5 in the open women’s final. Last year, Boiko won a second consecutive open women’s tennis title at the Burnaby Open, knocking off Neveklovska, the top seed, in three sets. The 15-year-old Boiko ran a string of upset wins en route to the Stanley Park championship final, including a straight set 6-3, 6-4 victory over No. 2 seed Anna Miguel of Spain in the semifinals. She also outlasted fourth seed Vivian Tsui of Port Coquitlam 3-6, 6-3, 6-1 in the quarter-finals. Boiko had little difficulty making it through to the final eight, finishing
off two challengers with straight set wins. Boiko blanked Lucy Fairbotham 6-0, 6-0 in the round of 16. She also handled Mackenzie Campbell easily in the opening round 6-2, 6-0. Top seed Henry Choi of Vancouver won his third Stanley Park Open in the past four years, defeating No. 4 Nick Coutts of Victoria 7-6, 6-2 in the men’s open division Sunday. Coutts made amends in the men’s doubles, teaming with fellow Victoria partner Patrick Flint to defeat Kris Santoso of Vancouver and Jerry Turek of Burnaby 7-6, 6-1 in the final. Coutts also took the mixed doubles title along with Neveklovska over Justin Guay of Richmond and Miguel of Spain in straight sets. Neveklovska and West Vancouver partner Sinziana Chis beat Kelly McNabney and Shiera Stuart of Vancouver 6-4,
6-2 in the women’s doubles final. In other results, Burnaby Tennis Club pro Glenn Richards made good on his No. 1 seeding, defeating Trevor Richards of Burnaby 6-3, 6-2 in the men’s 45 singles final.

The 29-year-old Olson, who has scored 11 times in just five games since being dealt to the Adanacs from Burnaby at the trade WLA deadline, scored both markers within 20 seconds of each other in the opening two minutes of extra time to keep Coquitlam’s slim playoff hopes alive.

Pontifex, Basil John 1922 - 2011 Basil Pontifex was born in New Westminster on July 10, 1922 and passed away at Royal Columbian Hospital on July 21, 2011 at the age of 89. Basil was a life-long Burnaby resident who grew up in the Deer Lake area. He attended Douglas Road School and Burnaby South High School. Basil served in Europe with the Canadian Army in World War II and was a 36-year member of the Burnaby Fire Department, retiring with the rank of Assistant Chief in 1982. Basil was predeceased by his wife Joi. He is survived by his children Ken, Doug, Janet and David, and his grandchildren Allison, Tristan, Molly, Trevor, Andrew and Nick. Basil was a devoted father and grandfather with a keen interest in family history who enjoyed contact with family members around the world. Well-read and unfailingly cheerful, Basil’s wry sense of humour will be missed by all of us. Following his wishes, there will be no funeral or memorial service.
