The City of Burnaby may be the only city left in the Greater Vancouver area that doesn’t post its election disclosure statements online. Anne Skipsey, Burnaby’s chief election officer, said city council would have to pass a bylaw to change from the current system of having the documents available in a binder in the clerk’s office to a new system of online posting of all documents. “Nobody has made that decision,” she said. “Council has not seen the necessity of doing this (change).” Skipsey said she still has to put together a report to council about the 2011 election, and it may be appropriate to note that Burnaby is one of the few cities left in the province not to have gone to an online disclosure system. Coun. Sav Dhaliwal said he hasn’t heard much complaint or feedback from the public asking for the election disclosure documents to be posted online. “I don’t think it’s a high priority,” he said. “Other than newspaper reporters, I wonder if anybody looks at them. Staff hasn’t brought it up to us as a major issue. “I think there are a few other things ahead of this that I believe are more of a priority for taxpayers.” Disclosures Page 9
TRAGIC EVENT STILL CAPTIVATES A CENTURY LATER
The lure of the Titanic never ends Christina Myers staff reporter
In the grand story of the Titanic, it may seem that all that can be said, has been said already: the sinking of the great ship has held the collective interest of the world for a century now, its story being told and retold through films, books and reams of historical research so
extensive it may seem that there are no mysteries left to uncover. And yet, as the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic approaches, there are still unknown details about the people who lost their lives – or barely escaped – on the night of April 15, 1912, and an appetite among the public to learn more about one of the most famous events of the 20th century.
The fascination with the Titanic makes perfect sense to Scott Larsen, a freelance journalist who has spent the last few months immersed in the story. “It has everything in one historical moment: it has rich, poor, it has hope, it has love, it has grief,” he told the NOW. “And it’s a puzzle, with pieces to fit together. It’s totally pulled me in.”

And he’s not alone in that. “The three most-written about topics in the world are, first, Jesus, then the U.S. Civil War and third is Titanic. It absorbs people,” he said. “I think it draws you in, in different ways – if you’re interested in ship building, in maritime history, in people, in the story of immigrants. It’s all there.” Larsen, a New Westminster resident, has been working on a six-part series about the ship and her Scandinavian passengers for the Den Danske Pioneer, an English language international Danish newspaper published out of Chicago, for the last few months. The commonly held belief – buoyed, no doubt, by the 1997 James Cameron epic film Titanic – is that the passengers aboard the ship were predominantly wealthy English and poor Irish, with just a sprinkling of Americans and Europeans of various nationalities among them, isn’t quite accurate. In fact, says Larsen, Scandinavians made up a bulk of the passengers and yet their stories have remained largely unheard. “The top three were the British and American – about 300 each, and those were mostly the upper class who simply wanted to ride on the maiden voyage of the Titanic – and then as a group, the Scandinavians were the third largest (group),” he said. Scandinavians include those from Finland, Denmark, Norway and Sweden. “There were more Swedes than Irish,” he notes. Those stories – the lives and often deaths of the 13 Danish, 31 Norwegians, 123 Swedes and 65 Finns aboard the ship – are what

Tracing the Titanic travellers continued from page 1
Larsen hopes to share with readers of the Pioneer. And, on April 1, he’ll also be sharing some of those stories at the Scandinavian Community Centre in Burnaby.
he story of the Titanic is so familiar to most in North America that the basic details need little reiteration: the ship left Southampton on April 10, made stops on the coast of France and then Ireland, and finally headed off for New York across the cold Atlantic. One hundred years ago this week, the lifeboats – of which it would later be learned there were not enough – were being tested; final fittings were deemed complete throughout the ship on March 31. With less than two weeks till it was scheduled to depart, there was still a flurry of activity going on to outfit it completely. Its maiden voyage might have been over before it even began, with a close call as it left Southampton – the large wake it created caused another ship to pitch, breaking its rigging. The two ships came within just a handful of feet from touching. But the minor crisis was averted, and it set off delayed by only an hour. Among those who research the Titanic, there’s still now speculation about exactly what went wrong, and how. Some details aren’t in debate: at some time just prior to midnight on April 14, on a cold and clear night, the ship hit an iceberg, its hull breached in multiple spots which, given the design of the interior, made it impossible to stop the flow of water. By 2:30 a.m., the ship had sunk entirely – some 1,517 people had died, many of them still inside the third-class passenger area, and just 701 were still alive, awaiting rescue. But how exactly had the ship hit the iceberg in the first place? How much did a desire for speed lead to the disaster – if at all? How did the iceberg get missed when crew were dispatched to watch for them, and warnings had been sent to them from other ships? Why were some areas of the ship locked, as many have claimed, making it impossible for people to come on deck? Some of those questions may never be fully answered, but the mystery – for Larsen – is part of the fascination, because it reveals so much about the people who worked and travelled on the ship. History, he says, is always about the people. “This story about the crew member up in the crow’s nest who should have seen the iceberg – some have said he was drunk,” notes Larsen.
“But one crew member got off in Ireland, and (it’s possible) that he had in his pocket the key to the box that held the binoculars.” One moment of simple human error – forgetting a key in a pocket – may have been just one piece in the disaster’s narrative. But certainly not the only one – another problem was the visibility. “It was the clearest night that anyone can recall – you read that over and over – the ocean was smooth, there was no moon out.” In rougher conditions, the water chopping up against the base of an iceberg will create a more visible line of white, giving a clue that something is ahead; in brightly lit conditions, icebergs are easier to see. That, says Larsen, may have contributed more greatly to the eventual disaster than speed. But there was – as in most great tragedies – no “one answer” to the question of the Titanic’s sinking. Of that, everyone is in agreement.
or the Scandinavians on board, their experiences in many ways echo what their fellow passengers would have experienced: either surviving the chaos to discover they’d lost family, or perishing altogether.
“One woman was going to Portland with her fiancé, brother and uncle – she was going to get married. ... She was the only one that survived of her family.” SCOTT LARSEN author
Almost all were immigrants – many would not have spoken English at all – and simply getting to the ship and paying for the ticket would have been a monumental task. “First, you had to get permission to even leave your country, as an immigrant – and you got your ticket from a ticket agent in your country. … For an immigrant in 1912, you made maybe (the current equivalent of) $700 annually, and a ticket on Titanic in third class would be about $650. ... First class could be as high as $60,000 to $80,000 in today’s dollars.” Most Scandinavians were in second and third class; even there, in some ways, the Titanic was luxurious as it provided food for third-class passengers.
Most ships at that time required third-class passengers to bring their own provisions aboard for the entire trip – many simply did without. Most of them were people seeking a new life in Canada and the U.S. – people with hopes and dreams for their future. It’s those stories that Larsen has unearthed to get a better picture of the fate of Scandinavians on the Titanic. “One woman was going to Portland with her fiancé, brother and uncle – she was going to get married and get a farm. She was the only one that survived of her family.” Another survivor was Clara Jensen, a Danish woman who escaped wearing just a nightgown and an overcoat. “Every April 14, she would stay up, and she would have the nightgown folded up beside her. … When she died, she was buried with her nightgown at her request.” Some survivors, he notes, fared relatively well – overcoming the tragedy to continue on with their lives. Some did not do so well. “They would have nightmares, one committed suicide, one went into alcoholism. They just couldn’t get their lives together, and they faded away into obscurity. Other people, by the grace of God, put it all together after such a traumatic experience and carried on,” he said. Still far too many didn’t have the chance to recover at all, dying out in the Atlantic – Larsen notes that not a single nationality reached even a 50 per cent survival rate, and most were far lower. Of the 13 Danes, only two survived. Larsen himself was initially drawn to the story after learning that his grandfather had come to North America in the early 1900s, settling in North Dakota as an 11-year-old boy, after travelling from Denmark with an uncle on board the Oceanic – the sister ship to the Titanic. He later heard a chilling story from his stepmother: her godmother had been scheduled to come over from Manchester aboard the Titanic, but the family changed their tickets at the last minute. “The father had a sinking feeling maybe they shouldn’t go on the first voyage,” said Larsen. “When they crossed over the Atlantic on the next ship, she could remember seeing the floating wooden deck chairs still there.”

odies were found for weeks afterward, though many were never recovered. About 300 are buried in Halifax, notes Larsen. “It was really a tragedy, it really affected people,” he said. And that continues to this day. “I’ve had to get up and leave the computer – you’re dealing with death and dying. … “To think of it: for many there was a language barrier, they couldn’t speak English, and some just didn’t believe that the ship was sinking. There must have been pandemonium. … As well as Hollywood can tell a story, it can’t touch anything you can find in the history books.” Larsen will be sharing some of that history during a talk at the Scandinavian Community Centre in Burnaby on April 1, as part of Nordic Spirit 2012: The Lives They Left Behind, a two-day series of sessions on Scandinavian history and heritage. To find out more about the event, call the centre at 604-294-2777. Larsen has also designed a series of five posters – one each for the four Scandinavian groups and one representing all four – commemorating the passengers on the Titanic, in honour of the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s sinking. The limited edition, signed posters will be available at the talk, or by contacting Larsen directly at email@example.com. firstname.lastname@example.org www.twitter.com/ChristinaMyersA

St. Thomas More Collegiate is taking a leap of financial faith in hopes of raising the rest of the money needed to build the private school’s new gymnasium. The school’s board made a decision in mid-March to go ahead with demolishing the current gym, even though they need another $800,000 to complete the replacement. “It was a much more difficult decision than expected, one that required some complex analysis and real soul searching,” said Cam Sylvester, chair of STM’s board, in an address to the school’s community. The independent Catholic school’s 1960s gym isn’t big enough to handle the number of kids now enrolled. The overall costs for a replacement gym were tallied at $7 million, higher than expected, although

The court, in a nutshell, agreed with the argument that safety issues trump morality issues. Sex trade workers, they said, are safer in a secure building – a brothel – than they are on the street furtively dealing with johns. The court essentially recognizes that the state has been pretty much useless in stopping prostitution. Sex trade workers have hailed the decision as a huge victory.
But, alas, we think it is a sad victory. Yes, some sex trade workers will manage to find a brothel that is safer. But the majority of street prostitutes are out there not because they’ve made a career choice but because they were abused as children and/or have a drug or alcohol habit. They are victims who will be revictimized wherever they sell their bodies – in back alleys, or in ‘secure’ houses.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Pipeline brings concerns Dear Editor:
Re: Mayor wants public consultation on pipeline, Burnaby NOW, March 7 and Where is the pipeline outcry, Letter to the Editor, Burnaby NOW, March 14. Yes, the pipelines should raise concerns, both in Kitimat and in Vancouver’s Burrard Inlet. In Kitimat, the pipeline will be for the tar sands crude – bitumen. Besides the environmental and aboriginal concerns along the pipeline, there is a concern about a safe passage of the big tanker ships through narrow channels leading into the Hecate Straight and into the Pacific Ocean.

Burrard Inlet concerns: the pipeline ships crude, refined and semi-refined products to Burnaby. Tankers fill up at the Westridge Marine Terminal in North Burnaby to take oil to the U.S. and Asia. An expanded pipeline would mean more tanker traffic in the Burrard Inlet. The first pipeline from Edmonton is older than the present Burnaby urban or industrial development. There are two Chevron and Shell refineries, supplying the gas not only to Burnaby citizens. I had nowhere mentioned the fact, that there is a very limited passage under the Second Narrows Bridge, leaving only one metre clearance under the bottom of the tanker. This limits not only the size of tankers used, also

the number of them to pass “safely.” I live in Burnaby Heights and was able to watch from the New Brighton Park a tanker escorted by five pilot ships – one in front, two on sides and two behind the tanker, under the Second Narrows Bridge. East from the bridge is also the only water line from North Shore to the Burnaby Heights main water reservoir supplying the Metro Vancouver with drinking water. These are the concerns to the proposed Burrard Inlet dredging. The Kinder Morgan line rupture accident is not relevant to the above concerns. It was caused by a company that did the excavation during their work along the Barnet Highway, not having proper maps/or consulting Kinder Morgan about their work in the area. Most of the houses in the subdivision must have been built around the pipeline leading to the nearby Shell refinery, already in place. When we moved to the North Burnaby 38 years ago, when I first opened the bedroom window, I noticed the smell from the refinery. During the last decade, maybe longer, this happens very rarely. With the gas to fill our cars, we are more concerned about the price than where it comes from. But only few are free to choose a lifestyle without a car. Most of the elementary-grade children are driven to schools. Even those, who use public transit for work need cars for shopping, appointments, children’s extracurricular activities – just a few necessities on the list. The answer to the twinning of the present pipeline is not a straightforward yes/
no. Before any public consultation, there should be appropriate reviews available from both the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency and the National Energy Board. It should also include refining possibilities in Alberta, so less volume will be needed to pass through pipelines. Alena Torn, Burnaby
Deliberate avoidance? Dear Editor:
We are told that campaign disclosure documents from the last municipal election are supposed to be made available for public viewing. Apparently they are, if you are able to get yourself down to city hall and find the city clerk’s office and fumble with a huge binder (likely the only copy in existence) and then not be duped by several red herrings, and should you have the grit and determination and perseverance to dig to the very bottom of this tome, you may eventually find figures that are (purportedly) the statements for which Mr. Lau came seeking. Were I of a suspicious nature, I might believe that this was a deliberate ruse, to deflect the fact that almost all their funding came from the treasuries of the workers’ unions without them having much say in the matter, and who may not ascribe to the parties being funded. I mean, just because you’re paranoid isn’t to say that they’re not out to get your money. Congratulations to Alfie Lau for having the tenacity of a terrier in digging up and uncovering the truth.

NDP: Mulcair faces a big job continued from page 6
choices being offered. All of them were waving at the crowd, except for one. That would be Brian Topp, the party establishment choice, who opted to hold up a clenched fist. The clenched-fist symbolizes the old days of class struggle and union hall politics of the traditional left. Mulcair appears ready to take the party down a new path that has less to do with partnering with old causes and more to do with embracing a new economy while still fighting for such issues as income equality and climate change. And this brings us to the sensitive issue of party unity, which Mulcair says is his top priority. The
BURNABY’S 1ST SPORTS BARBERSHOP
party establishment (the “elites”) pulled out all the stops in trying to keep him out of the top job, and it’s hard to imagine all those knives will be permanently put away. His decision to keep Vancouver East MP Libby Davies as deputy leader will appease the left-wing faction of his caucus, but I have to wonder just how long she’ll keep that post. Now that he’s leader, his pro-free trade and nonpacifist positions take on new importance, and are sure to upset the traditional leftists in his party. Throw in the challenges presented by a Quebec-dominated caucus, and the stage is set for some interesting internal tensions to emerge. It’s also unclear how
B.C. voters will react to a Quebecker trying to become prime minister. Will there be a backlash among some voters who are unhappy with the Harper government but are reluctant to vote for someone so closely tied to Quebec? But of course if the NDP can make big gains in Quebec, winning seats in B.C. becomes less of a priority. Mulcair may well be the first-ever NDP leader with a realistic shot at eventually becoming prime minister. But to reach that goal, he’s going to have to gore some sacred cows and keep his party together at the same time. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

NDP PARTY CHOOSES NEW LEADER
Mulcair may help attract centrist voters Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
The New Democrats have chosen Thomas Mulcair as their new leader, positioning the party to shore up support in Quebec, according to one SFU pundit. “I think it was a smart choice on the part of the NDP,” said Doug McArthur, an SFU professor of public policy. “They’ve built this new base in Quebec, and obviously they have to consolidate that if they want to move on and become government. I would say Mulcair is clearly the best leader to consolidate the base in Quebec.” McArthur said Mulcair “seems very intelligent and knows policy very well,” and he has a combative style that would seem best suited to take on Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Mulcair was a provincial Liberal politician in Quebec before he moved on to federal politics as a New Democrat. Mulcair is also hoping to garner more of the centrist vote, McArthur said. “He wants to bring the centre voters to the NDP,” McArthur said. “I think that’s one of the reasons he got so much support.”
New Westminster Conservative Paul Forseth also commented on Mulcair’s French connection but was less than confident in his governing abilities. “I think he’s very Quebec-oriented. I’ve observed him on TV broadcasts over the last couple of years, and he appears to be very aggressive, never missing to score a political point,” said Forseth, who ran as a Conservative in the last federal election for Burnaby-New Westminster. “The official Opposition (needs to) present a team that’s competent to govern, because they are technically the government in waiting. I don’t think Mr. Mulcair is prime minister material.” Forseth characterized Mulcair as a “salesman first.” “We really don’t know the real man. He will say or do anything for the advantage of his perceived audience. I don’t think we can really trust anything he says,” Forseth said. Some Burnaby city councillors voted for Mulcair, but Mayor Derek Corrigan and Burnaby’s provincial and federal NDP politicians supported Brian Topp, who wanted the NDP to stay more to the left rather than move to the centre.

Kinder Morgan extends call
Kinder Morgan is reopening a call for long-term binding contracts tied to the expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline, a 1,150-kilometre line that runs petroleum products from the Alberta tar sands to Burnaby. The company announced on Tuesday that the “open season” period, which already closed on Feb. 16, will run for another two weeks, starting on March 27. The open season is when shippers who use the pipeline agree to long-term binding contracts should the pipeline expand. Spokesperson Lexa Hobenshield could not provide details on what changes prompted the extension, but she said it’s common industry practice to extend open seasons. “Based on current level of commit-
ments ... and current proposed scope, we have room for additional participation from customers,” she said. “The scope of the open season was 600,000 barrels per day, and it could differ – up to 700,000 barrels per day. This is still the case. More information will be available about the proposed scope later this spring.” The open season news comes the same day the company announced that it will add 1.2 million barrels of capacity to its Edmonton terminal, which connects to the pipeline. Kinder Morgan still needs to consult the public and apply for National Energy Board approval before expanding the pipeline. – Jennifer Moreau, with files from Dave Cooper, The Edmonton Journal

Gym: STM raising $7 million and we are keenly aware of our duty to make responsible financial decisions that protect STMC’s future,” Sylvester said. The school will take out a short-term loan with the hopes of repaying it in the next five years, and the board is hoping to cover the remaining costs through more donations. “We will continue to seek support from those who have not yet joined us in this inspiring enterprise to cover the additional … costs of equipment, bleachers, temporary space for PE and the like,” Sylvester said. STM has been planning for the new gym for the past seven years. The current gym is set for demotion in May, and the new gym should be ready by September 2013 at the latest. The new two-level gym will be 27,000 square feet, large enough to accommodate community gatherings as well as sports events. There will be a dividing wall and fold-away bleachers to configure two full-sized gyms. The new changing rooms will be double the size of the current ones. The plan also includes a weight room, ample space for wrestling practice and fitness and cardio machines. STM also wants to install a new turf field, refinish its track and add lighting. STM is well known for its arts and sports programs and is also ranked in the top 25 schools in the province. The independent school has a $4.9 million annual operation cost; 49 per cent of that is covered by government grants and tuition and registration fees cover 46 per cent. The school is holding a farewell event for the old gym on Friday, April 20, from 7 to 9 p.m. The school is at 7450 12th Ave. www.twitter.com/ JenniferMoreau

End of an era? The Curtis Lumber building at 840 Sperling Ave. is one of two lots being cleared for residential properties.
Family lumber biz razed for residential lots Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
For 70 years the builders of North Burnaby could go to Curtis Lumber at Sperling Avenue and Curtis Street for supplies, the family business literally building the community around it. But for the past year the old Curtis Lumber building – along with another at 840 Sperling Ave. – has been vacant. When Brian Kask Sr. sold the family business to Canadian hardware company Rona Inc. in 2006, Rona signed a five-year
lease on the lots, he said in a phone interview Monday. “But I guess the owners now of Curtis – they bought Dick’s and are running the two companies into each other – probably just don’t need that many locations,” he said. After Rona chose not to renew the leases, the family tried to find other options, according to Kask, offering short-term leases to other businesses for a while. But the business that helped build the residential neighbourhood around Sperling Avenue is now succumbing to
the need for housing in Burnaby, according to Kask. “The bottom line is, it’s going to go residential,” he said. The flagship building at the corner of Sperling Avenue and Curtis Street is being demolished and the lot will be developed into five residential lots, Kask said, while the lot north along Sperling Avenue at Union Street will be developed into nine residential lots. Demolition of both buildings started Monday, though Kask had asbestos removed from the Union Street location
prior to that. Kask, who was calling from Phoenix, Arizona where he spends part of the year with his wife, said Monday was a good day to begin demolition, as the rain in Burnaby would keep the dust down. But it was a difficult decision for the family, he added. We have to do what we have to do,” he said. “But I hate to see it go.” The flagship location is especially hard to lose, Kask said. “It’s been a marker of the community

Fraser University students, won the Capital One SIFE Financial Education Challenge at the Advancing Canadian Entrepreneurship western regional competition, held in Vancouver at the beginning of March. Students with SFU’s Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) group designed the program to help lowincome women eat healthy on a smart budget, according to a SFU press release. The team will go on to the national competition in Calgary in May, the release added. SFU students Lynn Shinto and Kimberly Nguyen-Don presented the free, four-week program, which is led by students, a trio of volunteer dietitians and women who return as mentors, they said. They estimated the project has saved the female participants more than $23,000 overall on their food budgets, according to the release, and helped 52 low-income women in Surrey and Vancouver learn how to develop and implement food budgets in its first year. SIFE Simon Fraser was also a runner-up in the TD SIFE Entrepreneurship Challenge for its Bright Ideas and Student Entrepreneur of the Year programs, the release stated. Sonam Swarup, a thirdyear SFU communication student, was named the 2012 HSBC Woman Leader of Tomorrow for Western Canada at the competition. Matias Marquez, co-founder of Buyatab Inc. and SFU’s Student Entrepreneur of the Year 2011, secured the title of Student Entrepreneur Western Regional Champion. Both also move on to the national competition, the release said.
Help for hospital
Brentwood Town Centre recently donated $5,000 to its current charity of choice, the Burnaby Hospital Foundation, according to the foundation’s spokesperson, Stephanie Leung. The money went towards the purchase of a baby scale for the neonatal intensive care unit at Burnaby Hospital. The funds were raised during the past year through the centre’s stroller rental program and holiday toy fundraiser, she said in an email to the NOW. The centre also works with the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Deer Lake Rotary Club, Burnaby Family Life and Volunteer Burnaby on awareness building and fundraising at its location, according to the centre’s website.
Diversity in employment
Stantec, an architectural and planning consulting firm based in Edmonton, was named one of Canada’s best diversity employers by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers. The firm has an office in Burnaby with 139 employees, according to a press release from the company. The sixth annual competition recognized Canadian employers with “exceptional workplace diversity and inclusiveness programs,” the release stated. “To be named one of Canada’s best diversity employers is a tremendous honor,” said Tino DiManno, Stantec’s senior vice-president for Canada West, in the release. The editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers looked for diversity initiatives at Canadian companies in five categories: women; members of visible minori-
ties; persons with disabilities; aboriginal peoples; and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered/transsexual (LGBT) people. The firm was picked for initiatives such as appointing a director of diversity and inclusion at the company, forming an employment equity

Elder abuse can take a variety of forms but includes physical, psychological or ﬁnancial
abuse, as well as neglect. Nearly 8,000 seniors were victims of violent crimes in 2009, and about 35 per cent of the crimes were committed by a family member. Experts believe that elder abuse is under reported. In mid-March, the federal government announced

Our government is committed to ensuring that Canadians are made aware of this serious issue and that they have the necessary information and support
to take action and help prevent abuse.” Under the proposed amendment to the Criminal Code, evidence that an offence had a signiﬁcant impact on the victims due to their age – and other personal circumstances such as health or ﬁnancial situation – would be considered an aggravating factor for sentencing purposes. The amendment would ensure a consistent application of sentencing practices that treat the

Burnaby Citizens’ Crime Watch is looking for some fresh blood. The volunteer group does regular patrols around Burnaby, looking for stolen vehicles and reporting suspicious activity to police. The group now has about 30 members, but they want more eyes and ears on local streets. “It’s giving back to the community,” said longtime volunteer David Gates. “You’re helping your local law enforcement. We are the eyes and ears of the RCMP. Our motto is to observe and report.” Gates said if volunteers see something that’s “not right,” they phone police and report the problem. “We don’t do any arresting or anything like that,” he said. Volunteer Lesley Gregorash said the group is especially useful for people who are considering a career in law enforcement. To get involved, pick up an application at the RCMP detachment, at 6355 Deer Lake Ave. or any of the city’s community police offices. For more information, call 604-656-3223. www.twitter.com/ jennifermoreau

Improving doctors’ question techniques HEALTHWISE
Dr. Davidicus Wong
edical students are taught to take a careful history because in most cases, therein lies the patient’s diagnosis. When I was in medical school, we were taught how to “take a history.” This included: the history of the present illness (the presenting problem, when it began and the details of the patient’s symptoms), the review of systems (an inquiry into all the major organ systems), the patient’s past medical history (including allergies,
operations and significant illnesses and hospitalizations) and family medical history. As students, we tended to focus on getting specific details from the patient, and this often resulted in what must seem like a barrage of questions. These are intended to rule in or rule out particular medical conditions. Particular conditions often follow a predictable pattern of presentation. For example, the pain of gallstones is often described as crampy right upper abdominal pain radiating into the back following a heavy or fatty meal. The classical symptoms of very high blood sugars from uncontrolled diabetes are excessive thirst, hunger, urination and weight loss.
Sometimes, in the search for the diagnosis, we could get caught up in the questions and try to fit the patient into a recognizable pattern. Physicians trained in this way may fall into a pattern of asking many close-ended questions. The problem with this is that we limit the information we get in response, and some of the missed information may be crucial to the correct diagnosis. I’m happy to report that medical school has evolved since then. Students are learning early to listen better, to ask more open-ended questions and to invite patients to share more information. We know that patients put a lot of thought into how they are going to
explain their problems to their physicians. They might be rehearsing what they’re going to say on the way to the clinic or hospital and again just before they meet with their doctors. When I teach medical students and residents, I remind them that the old adage that the diagnosis is in the history really means that often the patient will tell us the diagnosis but we have to listen. After making the patient feel at ease, I encourage my students to let a patient talk about their symptoms without interruption. Studies have shown that most doctors interrupt patients within two minutes, and when this happens, they lose their train of thought and crucial information is missed.
By taking time to listen first, we gain more than launching in the typical medical inquisition. Students are now taught to ask more open-ended questions that invite more elaboration from the patient as opposed to the yes or no responses to close-ended questions. Medical students throughout Canada are taught to attend to more than the physical symptoms of illness. They learn the acronym, FIFE. This reminds them to ask patients about their feelings (fears and other feelings related to the experience of their illness), ideas (the patients’ own ideas about their condition), function (how the illness affects their daily lives) and expectations (what they expect from the doctor and from their
condition). Though old habits are difficult to change, I’m optimistic that doctors will continue to improve the way they communicate and relate to their patients. You could help. Do you have any comments or suggestions on how patients and doctors communicate? Send them to me at facebook.com/ davidicus.wong or leave a comment on my website at davidicuswong. wordpress.com. The Burnaby Division of Family Practice is working on a major project to transform the patient-doctor relationship. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a family physician. His Healthwise column appears regularly in this paper. You can find his Positive Potential Medicine podcasts at wgrnradio.com.

Decembrini, a fixture at the Hop & Vine for the past four years, has almost two decades of hospitality experience, and his flair in the kitchen is on full display during the Long Table dinners.

TASTE Hop & Vine: Long Table Series features gourmet food and beer pairings continued from page 25
“I’m actually a wine guy, big bold reds,” said Decembrini with a hearty laugh. “I don’t drink beer and at the beginning, it was tough to do the pairings.… But what I have learned and what I want people to take from this is to open their minds to new things. When I’m pairing food with beer, it’s the same as when I’m pairing wine with food. It’s the same technique, and I want people not to close their minds to what we’re trying to do.” Decembrini has grown to like darker beers, so it’s not usual to see a stout showing up on his menu. For a recent Long Table service, Decembrini paired a Green Flash IPA (India Pale Ale) with tuna tartare and wonton crisps and a stronger Green Flash Imperial IPA with blackened salmon and sautéed spinach. For dessert, a double stout went well with a Belgian chocolate pudding, and that’s the type of cre-

He throws caution to the wind, using exotic meats like venison when he can source it and he is partial to seafood too, as the pub is Ocean Wise certified. Noble said the Hop & Vine has had to overcome the misguided notion that pubs can’t, don’t or won’t serve food for gourmets. “Some people think of
pubs serving a lower calibre food and beverage,” he said. “But that’s just not true. We’re asking people to come and experiment with some gourmet food and drink in a more relaxed atmosphere.” That means even if the Long Table series doesn’t fit into your schedule, come and try some of Decembrini’s regular offerings, including the $15
grilled filet of maple sockeye served with “over the limit” amaretto prawns. I did, and the dish is delectable and amongst the best pub fare you’ll find in the city. Sure, you can also get pub favourites like the usual burger at $10 or a $12.50 blue collar burger featuring bacon, sauteed onions, mushrooms and mozzarella cheese, but take the advice of Noble and Decembrini and try some of the more exotic dishes on the regular menu at the Hop & Vine. The $10 butter chicken features an authentic Indian recipe made with traditional spices and served with naan bread over rice while the chipotle barbecue pulled pork sandwich features a Guinness barbecue sauce and ciabatta bread for $11. Those dishes, while good, will be different from what you get at the Long Table Series. Tickets for most Long Table Series events are $40 (plus tax) and are available at the bar or online

Getting fit without spending a fortune KEEPING FIT
etting into shape can seem like a huge commitment – both with your time and with your wallet. A gym membership, proper gear and fancy equipment can seem like a huge investment, especially when you’re just getting started. However, you don’t need to buy everything at once, and your purchases don’t have to be expensive. Going for a run or playing a game of beach volleyball is free, and more fun than sweating on a treadmill. If you’re ready to take your workout to the next level but not interested in investing in a gym membership quite yet, there are lots of great pieces of equipment you can buy for your home, all for less than $100. Here are a few to get started:
◆ Dumbbells are excellent and popular workout tools, as they are used in dozens of exercises and are an effective way to work out every muscle group. You can complete a full weighttraining routine with dumbbells alone. They are generally a dollar a pound but can be less expensive if you buy them in a set. ◆ Exercise bands are a great alternative to dumbbells. You can do many of the same resistance exercises, you can build your strength, and there is the added bonus of portability. An exercise band set ranges in price from $10 to $40. ◆ Medicine balls are weighted balls, approximately 14 inches in diameter and usually between one and 25 pounds. They are a great way to strength train, particularly for your core. In addition, using a medicine ball is a great way to combine cardiovascular and strength training, improve your coordination and increase your range of motion. There are plenty of exercises you can do alone or with a partner, and they range in price from $10
to $70, depending on the weight. ◆ A stability ball is a large, inflatable ball you can use in the place of an exercise bench. Stability balls are extremely effective in increasing core strength and stability and in improving posture, balance and flexibility. You can find a great stability ball for $30 to $50. ◆ Body-weight suspension systems have become very popular over the last three to four years and are a great way to add variety to your home workout. TRX cables are the most popular brand; however, there are some less expensive options on the market. These systems easily attach to a doorframe or overhead beam and allow you to use some or all of your bodyweight for resistance. They are good for those just starting out and can also challenge advanced exercisers. There are exercises for your entire body, and they take up minimal space. Prices start at $99.

Bruins buck Colts for double shot Tom Berridge sports editor
The Burnaby Winter Club will be vying for a Western Canadian bantam AAA double following a 6-5 victory over the Cloverdale Colts in the final at the B.C. Tier 1 provincial championships in Kamloops on Thursday. The regular season champion winter club Bruins allowed the Colts to claw back leads of 3-0 and 5-3 before star concensus first-round draft pick Matthew Barzal tallied the game-winner. The victory followed an earlier 5-3 loss to Cloverdale in round-robin play at the provincials. The Colts, runner-up finishers to the Bruins in the Tier 1 regular season, defeated the winter club 62 in the earlier Pacific Coast playoff final. Cloverdale also beat Burnaby 3-1 before going on to win the John Reid memorial AAA tournament in St. Albert, Alta. in January. “It doesn’t really matter, those other ones (losses),” said Burnaby Winter Club head coach John Batchelor. “It’s the one at the end that matters.” Burnaby opened the provincials with a 4-1 win over Kamloops on March 19. The Bruins then blanked the Victoria Racquet Club 4-0 and Prince George 9-0 on the Tuesday before the setback against Cloverdale in the six-team tourney. “Was I ever worried? – never. I know we’re good … and if we can stay out of the penalty box, we

Tier 3 bantam hockey provincial championships hosted in Burnaby last week. can play with anyone. At five-on-five, we are good,” Batchelor said. The veteran winter club coach threw a wrinkle in the championship final, taking Ty Ronning off the Barzal line and moving him alongside Adam Musil, giving the Bruins an effective one-two punch that the Colts ultimately could not match up with. The Bruins showed its scoring depth in the cham-
pionship final with all six goals coming off the sticks of individual players. Musil opened the scoring in the final for the winter club. Dante Fabbro and Ronning also scored to give Burnaby a 3-1 lead after one period. Nic Holowko and Dominic Massellis both tallied single markers in the middle period, which ended with the Bruins holding a 5-4 lead.
“The kids have a real good chance of hanging two banners back-to-back and that’s our focus,” Batchelor added. Last season, the winter club won its third Western banner, beating Winnipeg 3-2 in overtime. Burnaby Winter Club teams also won western banners in 2002 and 2007. The Western Canadian championships take place in Spruce Grove/Stony
Plain, Alta. from April 5 to 8.

Giants tame Cats for third straight time Tom Berridge sports editor
The Northwest Giants grew one more season in stature in the B.C. major midget hockey league. The Burnaby-based club won its fourth consecutive B.C. Amateur playoff title and third in a row against the Cariboo Cougars with a 2-1 victory over its chief rival from Prince George at the Burnaby Winter Club on Saturday. With a 4-1 win in the opening game of the best-of-three final series against the Cats on Friday, the Giants rode a key secondperiod goal from Burnaby blueliner Joseph Carvalho to victory, sweeping the Cougars in straight games in the final series for the
third consecutive season. “I was just trying to get (the puck) on net and get a rebound or something,” said Carvalho after the win. What he got was a whole lot more, including a second chance to redeem a lingering memory of the team’s collapse at the Telus Cup national midget championships last season. “We’re on a mission,” said Carvalho, who along with captain Taylor Tanti and Cam Marks are the only three Giants players left from last year’s squad. “We’re still a little bitter about losing the Telus Cup (last season). We’re going back there to get that cup.” Before that happens however, the Giants will have to get past
either the St. Albert Sports Raiders or the Red Deer Optimist Rebels, which currently lead the Alberta Midget Hockey League final series two games to none. The Giants outchanced the visitors in the opening period, despite a pair of golden opportunites by both Eric Margo and affiliate callup Sam Curleigh. Carvalho scored early in the middle frame with a shot on goal from the left side following a rush from his own blue line. Josh Trower made the score 2-0 on the team’s fourth power-play opportunity, taking a puck from Carvalho at the opposite point and slapping the rubber past Cariboo goalie David Readman on the short side.
Liam Smith of Burnaby had his shutout bid denied late in the final frame on a scramble in front on a Cariboo power play with less than six minutes left to play. Smith stopped 23 shots to record the victory. In the opening 4-1 win, playoff scoring leader Adam Helewka of Burnaby tallied a pair of markers less than a minute apart to spark a three-goal third period to help defeat the Cougars. Linemate Anthony Conti was in on all three late-period tallies, finishing with one goal and two assists. Justin White tied the game 1-1 with the only goal of the second Giants Page 35
A fifth-year volleyball player and the first-ever four-time national badminton player of the year were named Douglas College’s top athletes for 2012. Burnaby North grad Jeff Taylor and RuiLin Huang of Burnaby won the male and female athlete of the year awards at the Douglas College yearend banquet in Coquitlam on Thursday. Taylor helped the Douglas men’s volleyball team to a silver medal at the Canadian Colleges’ Athletic Association national championships. Huang won an unprecedented fourth straight national college women’s singles title and was also named the PacWest player of the year. Taylor, an outside hitter on the PacWest champion Royals, was honoured as a first team provincial all-star and as the provincial tournament MVP following a four-set win over Vancouver Island University. Taylor was also a CCAA All-Canadian and national tournament first all-star. “I wasn’t really expecting it, but I thought on the off-chance … I’m pretty happy. It’s my last banquet,” said Taylor. The highlight of Taylor’s volleyball career was working with this current group of friends. The sting of losing the gold medal at the recent nationals to Humber College may never completely heal, he confided. “I’ll probably know these friends for the rest of my life, and I’ll probably look back 10 years from now and think this was a pretty awesome team.” Huang helped Douglas capture its seventh consecutive provincial team championship. “I am happy,” said Huang after winning her fourth athlete of the year at Douglas. “As long as they need me, I’ll be back. ... I have no other choice.”

Captain leads Eagles to Coastal final Team captain Tyler Morley of Burnaby led the Surrey Eagles into the B.C. Hockey League Coastal conference final. Tyler scored a goal in both opening conference best-of-seven playoff semifinal games against the Cowichan Valley Capitals, including the game-winner in Surrey’s 4-1 at the South Surrey Arena on March 17. Younger brother Brandon Morley also scored an empty-net goal in the win.
Tyler was also named the first star in the Eagles’ 4-3 win over Cowichan in the series opener. Tyler and Brandon both scored goals in Surrey’s 7-5 win over the Caps on March 20. Tyler assisted on Brandon Tanev’s 3-2 overtime game-winner in Game 7 at the South Surrey Arena on Saturday. Steven Iacobellis scored a goal for Cowichan in the loss.
Canada’s junior national field hockey team was near perfect on a two-week nine-game tour in Chile. The junior nats, including Ali Currimbhoy, Gabriel Ho-Garcia and C.J. Roydhouse of Burnaby and Brendan, Matthew and Stephen Bissett of New Westminster, posted seven consecutive tour victories including a 4-3 win over Argentina in Santiago, Chile, last Wednesday. Currimbhoy levelled the score 2-2 on a field goal after the reigning junior Pan American champion had built up a 2-0 half-time lead. Matthew Sarmento scored the game-winner when his shot deflected off an Argentinian defender.
Prior to Wednesday’s game, Canada defeated its host on seven separate occasions, including a 31 win in the opener on March 13. Stephen Bissett and Currimbhoy followed up on the team’s first tour win with individual goals in a 6-0 victory the following day. Ho-Garcia and Matthew Bissett both tallied in a 6-2 win over Chile on March 16. A day later, Canada posted a 3-1 victory. Matthew Bissett opened the scoring in the March 17 match. On March 19, the junior team exploded for its most lopsided win, bombing Chile 10-4.
Matthew Bissett led Canada with two goals, while Ho-Garcia and Stephen Bissett also both tallied their second of the series. Canada finished up the busy South American tour blanking its host, while losing its only match – a 5-4 decision to Argentina on Saturday. Matthew Bissett opened the scoring for Canada in the game in the second minute. Earlier, Matthew Bissett tallied two goals and HoGarcia added a single in Canada’s 5-1 win over Chile. Canada finished up the tour with an 8-4 win over Chile. – tberridge@burnabynow. com

period after Prince George took the lead on Nathan Craft’s first-period marker. For Carvalho, this year’s provincial banner tastes just a little sweeter after the team lost B.C. Hockey League rookie of the year Alex Kerfoot and Western Hockey League rookie of the year Sam Reinhart to the junior leagues last season. “Last year was obviously awesome, but this team feels more special because we needed all 20 guys. I thought we really deserved it,” Carvalho said. Second-year Giants head coach Todd Harkins echoed the sentiment after the team got to the business of shoring up the B.C. title following a winless account at the AAA Mac’s midget hockey tournament in Calgary over the Christmas break. “We make every day a teaching day and a teaching moment and they bring with it accountability, and
Burnaby international soccer star Christine Sinclair led Canada’s national women’s team to a 2-1 win over Brazil last week. Sinclair tallied in the 12th and 78th minutes to give Canada a 2-0 advantage. Brazil broke Karina LeBlanc’s shutout bid in the 87th minute on a penalty kick.

LeBlanc captained Canada on her 100th appearance for the national team, becoming just the seventh player in the country’s history to reach the milestone mark. Sinclair was denied a goal on a breakaway off the opening kickoff, but she made no mistake on her second chance, beating an offside trap on a cross
from Candace Chapman and slotting the first goal of the game. Sinclair’s game-winner came with the left foot after a neat setup from Sophie Schmidt. Sinclair’s goal brings her season total to 13 and 133 to date in her career. Canada is in Sweden for an international friendly on Saturday, March 31.
