Candidate cleared in hate speech allegations Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

A Burnaby man who ran for school board has been cleared of hate speech allegations made by a local teacher on behalf of a student. The teacher, who wishes to remain anonymous, complained to RCMP after an Oct. 25 school board meeting, when Gordon World spoke against Out in Schools, a film program for students on bullying and homophobia. “I made a report to the police on behalf of a student,” the teacher wrote in an emailed statement to the NOW. “The student believed there were comments made that constituted hate speech. Based on the student’s report to me, I believed the student had some valid concerns. Evidently, what the student heard or perceived may have Gordon World differed from what was actually said as the police found the comments did not meet the threshold for criminal hate speech.” The allegations were part of the ongoing saga between gay rights advocates and parents opposed to the school district’s policy 5.45, designed to protect staff and students from homophobic bullying. However, the student in this case was not involved in the controversy around policy 5.45; he was attending the school board meeting for another matter. The teacher does not want to be named because there have already been death threats made against at least two people in the school district regarding the policy. World is planning legal action in response Hate speech Page 8

For Ria Renouf, Tuesday was the first time since Jan. 21, 2010 that she woke up thinking it would be a good day. That’s because the Burnaby RCMP told her and her family on Monday that they had made an arrest in the 2010 death of Renouf’s 73-year-old aunt, Virginia Itubay, who was killed by a hitand-run driver while crossing the busy intersection of Willingdon Avenue and Kitchener Street. “There isn’t even a word to describe how I feel,” Renouf said about the

arrest of 29-year-old Coquitlam resident Vincenzo Moscato Peragine. “I felt everything from being happy, to being upset … to thinking, ‘Why did this happen?’” Peragine was charged in Vancouver Provincial Court on Tuesday morning with failing to remain at the scene of an accident causing death with intent to escape civil or criminal liability. His next court appearance will be Jan. 31. According to Burnaby RCMP spokesperson Insp. Tim Shields, a core team of five investigators worked on the case for the past two years, with that number ballooning up to 20 at times. “Investigators from the Burnaby RCMP traffic section and serious crimes section never gave up in bringing clo-

sure to Virginia Itubay’s family,” said Shields. He said the lead investigator, a journeyman mechanic by trade, pushed the investigation ahead “inch by inch over the last two years.” In addition, Shields thanked the public for continuing to offer tips about the case, and it was a tip about the car that ultimately led to the police making an arrest. “The collision took place in broad daylight,” said Shields. “But no witnesses saw the actual impact. One (witness) saw an older black BMW fleeing from the scene. … It was info from the public that pointed us in the right direction.” The police concentrated their efforts on a 1993 318 series BMW and have had

GAY-STRAIGHT ALLIANCE CLUB SPREADS POSITIVE MESSAGES ON STICKY NOTES

Students told they’re beautiful Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Students arriving at Burnaby Mountain Secondary on Jan. 5 were confronted with thousands of sticky notes telling them they were beautiful. It was all part of a special initiative brought forward by the school’s new gay-straight alliance club. “Everyone loved them, it was a really great, positive response,” said Grade 11 student Ashlih Kassam. Kassam said the club ordered roughly 4,500 sticky notes, and members showed up before classes to post them around the school. The main message was: You’re beautiful, and the students had the notes made in eight different languages. “(They) said just really wonderful things, like: ‘Hey, your shirt looks good today.’ Just cute things like that,” she said. The students seemed to react well to the messaging. “It was definitely 90 per cent positive,” Kassam said. “I saw a couple of smiles, so that’s always good.” Kassam helped start the gay-straight alliance, which has about two dozen members, before the controversy around the district’s anti-homophobia policy broke out this past summer.

Larry Wright/burnaby now

Smile, you’re beautiful: Members of Burnaby Mountain Secondary’s new gay-straight alliance club covered the school with thousands of positive messages recently, hoping to life their peers’ spirits. “It’s also called an anti-bullying club. It’s to include everyone, no matter what you look like and who you are. Our main goal is to make people feel good because you don’t know what they may be going through,” Kassam said. The students made an effort to pick up

the thousands of notes afterwards, and they are considering doing it again at the beginning of the next school year. The club got the idea for the notes from a similar initiative called Operation Beautiful, started by Caitlin Boyle, a 27year-old American woman who left nice

notes on mirrors in public bathrooms. Boyle’s movement of countering negative self-talk by leaving anonymous positive messages has spread, and she’s published a book on it and has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Network. For more on her project, visit operationbeautiful.com.

Bus driver saves stranded barred owl ‘Cars were whizzing by, just missing him literally by inches’ Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The Wildlife Rescue Association’s first “patient” of 2012 arrived in rather dramatic fashion on New Year’s Day. It all started shortly after New Year’s Eve, when Port Moody bus driver Thomas Stryj was heading home around 1 a.m. after his night shift. Stryj was driving down Hastings Street, close to Kensington, when he spotted something in the middle of the road and swerved suddenly. “It looked like a small box, and as I got closer I saw it was an owl,” Stryj said. “Cars were whizzing by, just 6

missing him literally by inches.” Stryj turned back, got out of the car and tried to coax the barred owl off the road, but it couldn’t fly. So Stryj took a blanket from his car, bundled the bird and drove it to Burnaby’s Wildlife Rescue Association. But at about 1:30 a.m., the centre was closed, so Stryj found a kennel behind the building, placed the owl inside and wrote a note for staff. “He was scared, he had his beak open,” Stryj said. “He was such a beautiful owl, and I was just looking in his eyes, and I was talking to him, and he calmed down.” Stryj said he stayed for about 20 minutes, just trying to comfort the animal. “I didn’t want to leave, he was so beautiful,” Stryj said. “I was talking to him saying, ‘It will be alright, they’ll come help you soon,’ and he just listened and

tilted his head. It was so cute.” Ana Mendes, one of the wildlife rehabilitators, arrived for work the next morning and heard the owl making a ruckus in the kennel, trying to escape. She took it inside for an examination and found it was suffering from a concussion but did not have any broken bones. The owl is expected to make a full recovery and should be released in the wild soon. The association gets several owls this time of year, according to spokesperson Yolanda Brooks. “Food is scare, and they have to hunt for longer and over wider terrain, which brings them into urban areas more often,” she said. “Young owls have just left their parents and are still learning how to fend for themselves in the wild.” Some owls, such as Northern saw-whet owls come down from higher elevations and suddenly have to deal with people, buildings and cars, she added. Brooks said this barred owl was likely hit by a car at a time when most people just wanted to go home and go to bed, but this bus driver cared enough to stop and help, she said. “If he hadn’t intervened, the owl would have died. Thanks to Tom’s actions, this barred owl has been given a second shot at life.” For Stryj, leaving the owl in the street was unthinkable. “I care about animals. I hate to see anything distressed,” he said. “They all need our help. If everybody in the world pitched in just a little bit, the world wouldn’t be a bad place.”

City says no to park curfews Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Burnaby’s parks, recreation and culture commission has decided against instituting evening closures in municipal parks. The commission considered the closures after receiving complaints from Burnaby residents who live near Ledingham Park in the Metrotown neighbourhood last fall. The tiny park sits between Waverley and Jubilee avenues, and Victory and Watling streets, hidden behind houses in the area and only accessible through two back lanes. The commission chose not to bring in a nighttime ban for a number of reasons, according to the director of the parks, recreation and cultural department, Dave Ellenwood. The Burnaby RCMP had a large influence on the decision. “The Burnaby RCMP have at their disposal all of the tools required that they need to deal with this type of nuisance,” he said of the issues at the park. The issue came up in 2003 as well, Ellenwood said, but the RCMP said closures were not necessary at that time, either. The mobile park patrol team can attend disturbance calls, as well, and are on call 24 hours, Ellenwood said, and staff can deal with minor offences and non-threatening situations in parks during week days. There was also concern, from both Ellenwood and the RCMP, that closing the parks at night would adverse-

ly affect legitimate park users. Area resident Thomas Hasek doesn’t think the city took his and his neighbours’ complaints seriously. “At this time I should state that I find your casual dismissal of our concerns distressing, to say the least,” Hasek wrote in an open letter to Ellenwood, in response to the decision. Hasek and his neighbours, including neighbourhood Block Watch captain Debra Morgan, are concerned that problems over the last two summers at the park will continue if evening closures are not put in place.

Hasek said he doesn’t understand why Burnaby will not introduce the closures when neighbouring cities such as Coquitlam and New Westminster ban park use at night. Hasek and Morgan spoke to the NOW about some of the incidents in an article last fall. Despite the park’s intended use, it has attracted an older crowd, according to Morgan, with teenagers and young adults showing up to party there on summer evenings after dark.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Don’t speak for me, please

Dear Editor:

In his misinformed letter (Future predictions, Letter to the editor, Burnaby NOW, Jan. 6) trying to justify homophobia, Larry Bennett attempts to lump every religion into his misconceived notion of what religions teach about homosexuality. By saying that all Sikhs consider homosexuality to be a sin, he is saying that I believe that homosexuality is a sin. Mr. Bennett is mistaken on many levels in his letter, but I will address just one of his many erroneous statements. In Sikhism, it is a sin to hurt the feelings of another person and to inflict undue suffering on other beings (be they human or animal).

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Teachers act in good faith continued from page 6

meetings since last June with the government’s bargaining team, BCSPEA, they have offered nothing. The BCTF have dropped many of their demands in good faith. As teachers we have spent most of our union dues in the courts fighting this government’s class size increases and the increase in special needs student ratios in each classroom. Special needs include categories such as ESL, learning disabilities, severe behaviours, physical disabilities, autism and more. Some classrooms now have one in three students requiring special attention while special education teacher and special education assistant jobs have been cut. Yet BCSPEA is demanding the following conditions: ◆ Administrative officers will be able to terminate a teacher’s employment based on a single performance review. ◆ Potentially, any teacher could be transferred year after year, teachers could be transferred to another community, and interim positions could be filled without posting. ◆ Although other unions such as the police and nurses have received raises this year, we are being offered zero per cent.

◆ Teachers in B.C. are among the lowest paid teachers in Canada. Yet salary increases continue at the top level of management. As reported in The Vancouver Sun recently, superintendents are making over $200,000 per year. Some secondary principals are receiving $50,000 more in salary than the highest paid teacher in the same school. The Labour Relations Board has ruled that teachers can legally take strike action. After 62 stalled bargaining meetings, teachers are feeling discouraged. The union is beginning to discuss further action … soon. Jan Stuart, by email

Remember leash laws Dear Editor:

Re: Winter fun, front-page photo, Jan. 4, Burnaby NOW. Confederation is not an off-leash park. There is a huge off-leash area beyond the playground. Please run your dogs there, not on the grass area where children play soccer or on the new track. It is amazing to me that dog owners never have to follow any rules about leashes apparently because their dogs are so friendly. Not everyone is comfortable with dogs bounding around them. Linda Benedet, Burnaby

Clark: Ex-premier may be influencing NDP direction continued from page 6

of course, is what kind of influence will this ex-politician, who has significantly changed his philosophy, have on the man who has a very good shot at taking on the same job he used to have? The ties between Clark and Dix are deep and significant. Clark always struck me as a mentor of sorts for Dix, as the two men forged a close bond between 1991 (when Dix began working for him as a ministerial assistant) and 1999, when Dix was forced to quit as his chief of staff. In 2005, Dix ended up taking over Clark’s old riding of Vancouver Kingsway, and the two remain close friends. So it’s hard to think

that a more conservative Clark won’t have a significant impact on Dix’s own political philosophy. Although the B.C. Liberals are trying to portray Dix as some kind of far-left socialist menace, the only evidence – if you can call it that – to back up that assertion is dredging up the track record of the NDP government of the 1990s. Dix has offered precious little evidence of his own to help them. He’s proposed raising corporate taxes to the levels the B.C. Liberals themselves established in 2008, which is hardly a radical socialist policy. Instead, Dix is talking about narrowing the activities of government

instead of expanding them – just as his old boss advocates. So don’t be surprised if Dix turns out to be closer to the new Glen Clark than the old one: more moderate, business-friendly and less activist. After all, if one of the top figures in the former NDP government can change so much, why can’t another? (By the way, Johal’s three-part series on Clark and Pattison – entitled The Odd Couple: the Premier and the Billionaire – can be seen on Global B.C.’s website. It contains more extensive footage of the interview with Clark). Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

that car in their possession for the past six months as they put together their case. Shields said the BMW would have most probably sustained significant damage because of the accident and that damage was fixed. Shields said some of the techniques investigators used included interviews, surveillance and an extensive forensic investigation of the vehicle. “There is no indication that this accident was intentional,” said Shields, who also ruled out alcohol as a contributing factor. “This does appear to be an accident.” Shields added that Peragine is not known to police. Renouf said her aunt, who came to Canada from the Philippines in 1980, was a warm, loving and happy woman who was probably heading back from church or shopping when she was hit. “Somebody extinguished one of the lights that made our family shine so brightly,” said Renouf, who added that her aunt was not married and had no children of her own but had many nieces and nephews.

Holiday Special

Family ties: Insp. Tim Shields and Ria Renouf speak

at a press conference on Tuesday. Renouf’s aunt, Virginia Itubay, was killed in a hit-and-run nearly two years ago, and police just announced an arrest.

Renouf also thanked the RCMP for never giving up on her aunt’s case. “The police practically became like a second family to (us),” she said. Renouf said the last two years have been hard on their close-knit family, and Itubay’s death was always in the back of her mind. Renouf would go off to school wondering if her aunt would get justice and her family would get closure, but those two outcomes were elusive until Tuesday. “Today, I woke up,”

said Renouf, “and (I knew) it was going to be a good day.” Renouf, a student who made her statement while holding onto an SFU clipboard, was also asked what she would say if she could confront the man accused of killing her aunt. “I’ll pray for you,” she said. “My family and I will pray for you. … It’s a very difficult thing to deal with. I can’t say much more than that.”

RCMP spokesperson Brenda Gresiuk confirmed that police looked into the hate speech complaint, which they became aware of in early November. “Police did receive a complaint. We have concluded it without any charges. We consulted with E-Division hate crimes and serious crimes, and it did not contravene any Criminal Code offense,” she said. Gresiuk also said that the RCMP’s investigation into the death threats related to policy 5.45 was concluded and that there were no charges. Gresiuk would not provide any further details on either case.

Hasek also found the suggestion that closing parks at night would take legitimate uses out of the park “bewildering,” he said. “Furthermore, the implication in item No. 1 of the (commission’s report) that playing basketball after dark should be encouraged is nothing short of irresponsible,” he wrote in his open letter.

Hot potato

Seventy Simon Fraser University students delivered 400 baked potatoes to needy people in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside on Jan. 4. The students were part of SFU Residence Life, a program that hires students to live in residence and provide support to their peers. Nesters Market donated the potatoes, and the students baked them and handed them out at three downtown locations. They also brought warm clothes to give away. The idea behind the gesture was: actions speak louder than words, which is the training theme for the program. Chris Rogerson, SFU associate director of Residence Life, explained how the concept has roots in the aftermath of the Stanley Cup riot. Outgoing SFU chancellor Brandt Louie delivered a speech after the riots that inspired the theme. “As a community of educators, we must help our young leaders of tomorrow realize the world judges us on our actions, not our intentions,” he said, reacting to Here & Now Page 12

Animals get a second chance Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

It was a busy year for the Wildlife Rescue Association of B.C. Staff at the Burnaby-based centre helped 3,274 animals in 2011, the most in seven years. “Two thousand and eleven was an extremely busy year, but with the help of volunteers who gave their time, and the support of local individuals, families and companies who donated cash, food and equipment, we were able to save the lives of hundreds of animals,” said the association’s Yolanda Brooks. “Everyone at the Wildlife Rescue Association would like to thank them for their generosity and their dedication to helping wildlife.” Rescued animals came from as far as Calgary, Whistler, Courtenay and Grand Forks and included ravens, owls, hawks, mergansers, great blue herons, hummingbirds, grebes, skunks, marmots, moles and beavers. One skunk, named “Bubbles,” made headlines after it was recently released in Vancouver’s West End. Bubbles was brought to the association for rehabilitation because of a plastic drink lid stuck around its neck, which was cutting into the skin. The largest animal rescuers

handled was a beaver, and the smallest was a hummingbird saved from the jaws of a cat. “It had puncture wounds and lost feathers, but it survived to fly another day,” Brooks said. Other notable cases included a young, male raccoon that lost its tail last January after he was electrocuted and fell from

a transformer tower. “We operated to create a clean wound, and he was released after about two weeks in care,” Brooks said. In summer, there were a couple of orphaned common merganser chicks. “When they first arrived their waterproofing was poor, and we didn’t think they were

going to survive,” Brooks said. “Waterfowl are also incredibly stressed in captivity, and their environment has to be very carefully controlled. We raised them for 72 days during the summer. They were successfully released.” For more on the Wildlife Rescue Association of B.C., go to www.wildliferescue.ca.

In November she published The Global Indie Author: How Anyone Can Self-Publish in the U.S. and Worldwide Markets, copies of which will be available at the event at a special rate. Demers will answer questions about the industry, her experiences as a self-published author and the technical requirements of self-publishing, in particular ebooks.

Art of textiles

Textile art is on display in the next exhibition

at the National Nikkei Museum and Heritage Centre. Tengui: Design Excellence in Japanese Daily Life opens Jan. 13 and runs until March 24. A press release notes that tengui literally means “hand towel” in Japanese, but the colourful cotton cloths are also used as headbands or scarves, for cleaning, for wrapping gifts and even for advertising. Tengui have been used in Japan over the last 1,000 years – when cloth was precious and they were originally used in the eighth century as special accessories for Shinto rituals. In the 17th century, when the production of cotton increased, people were able to use the cloths in their daily lives. The invention of chusen – a stencil and dye-pouring technique – increased the number of tengui readily available and allowed designers to incorporate multiple colours and shad-

ing. Today, tengui cloths come in thousands of designs and colours, with special patterns for each season and special occasions. The exhibition at Nikkei Centre features new designs to celebrate the Year of the Dragon in 2012, as well as dyeing tools and stencil and a video showcasing the chusen technique. An opening celebration is set for Saturday, Jan. 14 from 4 to 6 p.m. The National Nikkei Museum and Heritage Centre is at 6688 Southoaks Cres. Check out the website at www.jcnm. ca for more about the exhibition and other events happening at the centre. Do you have an item for Lively City?

Celebrate Chinese New Year in Burnaby Alfie Lau

staff reporter

While many people have already celebrated the start of 2012, there’s another set of New Year’s celebrations coming later this month. The Chinese New Year comes on Jan. 23, and this year is the Year of the Dragon. Here’s a list of some of the events scheduled for Burnaby already. People who know of more local Chinese New Year events can email details to the Burnaby NOW at edito rial@burnabynow.com.

The celebrations will begin in the Grand Court at 10 a.m., where the lion will “wake up” and begin the parade throughout the shopping centre to bless participating stores. This custom is

believed to bestow prosperity and good fortune. The Grand Villa Casino will host its festivities on Monday, Jan. 23.

Metro Vancouver and the B.C. Pharmacy Association want the public to return any unused or expired medication to the nearest drug store. Old and expired drugs can be potentially harmful to children or pets if swallowed. Last year, people returned nearly 30,000 kilograms of unused medication. There is no cost to return the meds, and there are more than 375 pharmacies involved in the return campaign. For more information on the program, go to www.medications return.ca.

I have a copy of Mike McCardell’s new book, Here’s Mike. Readers may recognize McCardell as the television personality that, by his own admission, largely avoids real news stories in search of human-interest pieces. Here’s Mike is a collection of the author’s favourite tales, from the thousands he’s told on Global TV’s News Hour. McCardell is originally from New York and got his start in the mailroom of the Daily News. He eventually became a crime reporter and was taken hostage during the 1970 prison riots in New York City, and he’s also been shot at while covering stories. The first person to email me with “Here’s Mike” in the

ean Dragomir is only 28, but for the past 20 years, he’s dreamed of opening his own hotdog restaurant. Burnaby may not be ready for all hotdogs, all the time, but Sean’s Good Eats and Java Junction at 7985 North Fraser Way is Dragomir’s first foray into restaurant ownership. What makes Sean’s Good Eats so unique is that the restaurant is part of the Avalon Dairy retail store, which means there’s a steady stream of people coming and going with their glass bottles of milk. “This was a great opportunity,” said Sean. “We opened a couple months ago, and we’re building up a good lunch crowd. … It also helps to get the traffic from people coming for their milk. They can stop for a coffee, we’ve got local bread from Uprising Breads, and our food is pretty good too.”

TREATMENTS THAT STAND THE TEST OF TIME Thermage is a safe, clinically proven way to tighten and contour skin, with improvements in tone, contour, and texture occurring naturally through the stimulation of your own collagen. Thermage is completely non-invasiveno surgery, no injections. A single treatment tightens your existing collagen

The Thermage procedure is available only in the offices of qualified physicians who specialize in cosmetic procedures. The procedure itself is normally done as a single treatment that takes from 20 minutes to two hours depending on the treatment area. What’s more, there is no downtime— so you can quickly resume your normal routine. Unlike lasers, Thermage works on all skin types and tones. And unlike injectionsorfillers,Thermageworks on your entire face—forehead, eyes, nasolabial folds, jaw line, jowls and the area under your chin.

If you no longer recognize the face looking back at you in the mirror, it’s time to talk to a certified Thermage physician and learn how Thermage can help you look as young as you feel.

The facility introduced several innovative techniques in British Columbia and it was the first in the province to offer ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy and ambulatory phlebectomy several years ago.

PRE-TREATMENT

POST-TREATMENT

The procedure eliminates the source of some types of varicose veins by using laser energy to seal shut the saphenous vein from the inside. Unlike stripping, it can be done in the office with only local anaesthesia. There are no incisions and no downtime is involved as patients can walk home afterwards and continue with their routine daily activities.

• Vein mapping with duplex and color doppler ultrasound detects all diseased vein segments. • EVLT or endovenous laser treatment. Ultrasound guided laser closure of the saphenous vein. A minimally invasive alternative to stripping with no downtime. • Ultrasound-guided (foam) sclerotherapy for treatment of veins right up to their source. • Ambulatory phlebectomy or microincision vein removal leaves no ugly scars. • Sclerotherapy of unsightly veins on hands, breasts and other parts of the body.

FACIAL REJUVENATION

A treatment for varicose veins that doesn’t involve stripping. The Vein and Laser Clinic was established in 1992 and since then thousands of patients, have been treated at its central Lonsdale location in North Vancouver.

ADVANCED VEIN TREATMENTS

The clinic is unique in that it makes extensive use of advanced color doppler and duplex ultrasound, to detect all the diseased vein segments and accurately pinpoint the source of the varicose veins. The technology thus enables delivery of a sclerosing solution into deeper lying vessels with precision that would be very difficult to achieve with conventional techniques. All this makes the treatment safer and more effective with excellent functional and cosmetic results. The practice of medicine is changing rapidly and demands constant innovation. Keeping abreast of the latest developments, the facility in 2002, under the direction of Dr. Ferdinand Stasiak, was the first in Canada to perform a breakthrough in the treatment of varicose veins. Called EVLT or endo-venous laser therapy, it offers a much less invasive alternative to stripping.

Tourney time: St. Thomas More’s Andrew Morris, in white, was named the MVP of the 46th annual Chancellor basketball tournament on Saturday.

Inconsistent ’Dogs .500 at Chancellor Tom Berridge sports editor

The St. Thomas More Chancellor tournament has been a fickle friend to the Byrne Creek Bulldogs boys’ basketball team. The AAA No. 10-ranked Bulldogs had another less than memorable appearance, finishing in seventh place overall following an 83-74 loss to AA No. 2 G.W. Graham from Chilliwack in the consolation final on Saturday. “To play a high level of basketball, there has to be some structure, and this wasn’t that,” said Byrne Creek head coach Wayne Best after the game. “With the parity this season, the mentally

strong teams will rise to the top.” After a title win at the Gleneagle Talons Classic that saw wins over ranked teams from Sir Charles Tupper and R.C. Palmer, and Carson Graham, the mercurial Bulldogs finished with a 2-2 record at the Chancellor, including a 74-70 overtime loss to AAA honourable mention Maple Ridge in the quarter-finals. Best substituted liberally throughout the contest in the hopes of finding a winning combination against Graham’s fullcourt pressure, but none proved ultimately successful. “When you don’t have the Bulldog heart, it compounds that (the problem),” Best added.

All-tournament honourable mention Kennedy George led the Bulldogs with 23 points, while 6-5 senior Jada Lado chipped in with 17 points. Seven other Bulldogs contributed to the scoreline. Second-team tournament allstar Lucas Mannes was the difference in the matchup, gunning a game-high 28 points for the Grizzlies, including 13 of 16 free throws from the second quarter on. Hamdy Farah put Byrne Creek into a 71-65 lead midway through the final quarter, but a string of turnovers quickly turned the tide in the Grizzlies’ favour. George scored 48 total points

in the Bulldogs’ first three games, including 17 in a 63-54 win over Enver Creek to advance into the consolation placement round on Saturday. Byrne Creek opened with an 8055 victory over Centennial. Grade 11 forward David Majstorovic led the ‘Dogs with 17 points in the game. Byrne Creek won the Chancellor in 2009 after a third-place finish the year before. In the last two years, the Bulldogs failed to make it to the final day of tournament play, losing on Day 2 to the eventual titlist Tamanawis last season and to eventual runner-up Fleetwood Park in 2009.

Simon Fraser University won the inaugural University Hockey Showcase over the University of B.C. in a shootout on home ice. Jono Ceci scored the game-winning goal in an extra fourth shootout round to give Simon Fraser the inaugural hockey showcase title over its Canadian Interuniversity Sports rival on Saturday. The B.C. Intercollegiate league Clan club hockey team won the opening matchup in the two-game, home-and-home series 31 at UBC’s Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre on Friday. UBC repaid the favour the following evening, tying the series by a similar 3-1 scoreline at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre. The two university clubs played a scoreless four-onfour overtime. “This was a tremendous event that obviously captured a great deal of attention around the Lower Mainland,” SFU head coach Mark Coletta in an SFU press release. “The fan support tonight and the media coverage over the last few days has been outstanding. Obviously there’s an appetite for university hockey, especially with the UBC/ SFU rivalry. Winning the event was a great end to a fun couple of days.” SFU’s two goaltenders were both named players of the game in the twogame series. Graeme Gordon stopped 49 shots in Burnaby, while Evan Kurylo was the difference in the opening game in UBC, making 42 saves to earn the first star. The return of two veteran players to the Clan lineup also paid big dividends for SFU. Defenceman Kyle Boyko, who was picked up along with Bill Smith just prior to the game, scored what proved to be the game-winning goal in Friday’s win, firing a shot from the point in the first period that gave SFU a 2-1 lead.

points in his first three games. STM opened with an 89-35 whitewash of Sutherland on Jan. 4. The Knights edged Enver Creek 68-61 on Thursday before beating up on AAA honourable mention Maple Ridge 74-47 in the semifinals. “Since Grade 8, we’ve been a real team,” said Morris of the Knights’ effort. “We’ve stayed as a whole and played as a team. That’s what makes us special, it is how we work as a group.”

For STM head coach Aaron Mitchell the wins at the Chancellor put the AA No. 7-ranked Knights back on the rails. “It’s as exciting as it gets. It’s great for the team and great for the program,” said Mitchell of the title game. “It’s great we have this momentum back. But we can’t get too high. We have to maintain that balance.” The tournament win was the Knights first Chancellor title since 2007, when the team defeated the visiting Blackburn Vikings from Australia in the final.

HAWKINS, Myrtle ( nee WEBB )

May 11 1922 – January 02 2012

It is with great sorrow that the family of Myrtle Hawkins announce her death on January 02 2012 at Crossroads Hospice in Port Moody after a brief stay in Royal Columbian Hospital. Her children were with her at her side. She is pre-deceased by Bert, her husband of 60 years, brother Harry, and sisters Winnie, Grace, Margaret and Joyce. She leaves behind daughters Sandy Forest and Peggy Hawkins (husband Richard) and son George (wife Sue) and two beloved sisters-in-law – Peggy Webb in Brisbane, Australia and Gloria Hawkins in Burnaby – grandchildren David Ingram (Becci) in Parksville, Mary Forest (Robinson) in Tofino, Rosemary Forest (Greg) in London, England, Sandi (Nick) in Nanaimo, and Steph (Danny) in Maple Ridge and three greatly loved great-grandchildren Joey, Rhys and Cedar, and numerous nephews and nieces. Myrtle got great joy out of life – devoted wife, mother and friend – avid watercolourist – passionate gardener – keen hiker and outdoor person - who was very active right up to and including the day she went into hospital. In her last week, surrounded by those she loved, she said more than once it was a wonderful day. She had a life well lived and will be for ever in our hearts. We wish to expend special thanks to friends and staff at Thornbridge Gardens where Myrtle spent 5 wonderful and rewarding years. There will be gathering of friends and family to celebrate Myrtle’s life on Saturday January 14th at 8080 19th Avenue Burnaby 2:00-5:00.

SUDOKU Fun By The Numbers

Like puzzles? Then you'll love Sudoku. This mind-bending puzzle will have you hooked from the moment you square off, so sharpen your pencil and put your Sudoku savvy to the test!

SUDOKU

Fun By The Numbers

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!
