More fish sightings at Burnaby city park

Another resident gets footage of aggressive, invasive fish in pond Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

There’s been another snakehead sighting at Burnaby’s Central Park pond, confirming the presence of the so-called “frankenfish.” BurnabyresidentBruceCausier shot video of the aggressive invasive species on Thursday, May 17. Causier had heard about the snakehead and set out to catch the fish on videotape. He wasn’t surprised when he spotted it. “It’s a really cool-looking fish, but that fish definitely shouldn’t be in there. It’s so aggressive, especially if it’s not the only one in there. If they start breeding, they are going to wipe out all of the fish in that pond,” he said. “It would be nice if someone did catch it.” Causier said he’s sure what he saw was a snakehead. “Oh, I’m positive, just by the look of it. It wasn’t a koi, it wasn’t a carp, it wasn’t a catfish. That’s usually what you see in there. It was about 18 inches long,” Causier said. The first video shows the snakehead floating just beneath the water’s surface. In the other video, someone tries to catch the snakehead with a fishing line. The creature snapped but didn’t take the bait. The first snakehead sighting – caught on video on Sunday, May 13 by Burnaby resident Rod Gonzales – has drawn widespread media attention, including stories with the London Free Press and Huffington Post Canada. Snakeheads are considered voracious predators that can wreak havoc in an ecosystem when introduced to non-native

On the watch: Burnaby resident Bruce Causier, here with his children Alex and Kyra, says he’s also captured footage of the snakehead fish in Burnaby’s Central Park pond. The invasive species is highly aggressive and preys on other fish.

environment. They feed on fish and frogs and the occasional small mammal. They can breathe atmospheric air and wriggle on land, surviving for days out of water, provided it’s wet. Snakeheads can be sold as pets or food, so it’s likely someone dumped the fish in Central Park. (There are two ponds in the park, and the snakehead has been spotted at the southern pond, closest to the pitch-and-putt and Imperial Drive.)

Provincial government staff members are assembling a team in hopes of finding and removing the fish. They may use nets or electrofishing, which involves using a light current to stun the fish but not kill them, so they float to the surface. The B.C. Environment Ministry has said it is considering a ban on the sale of live snakeheads in the province. According to the federal

Fisheries Act, it’s an offence to release a non-native species into B.C. water bodies. “There is no way to determine how an introduced species will interact with the existing ecosystem, but in the case of snakeheads, significant environmental damage could result,” the ministry stated. T&T Supermarket, which was selling live snakeheads for food in some of its stores, has stopped the practice as a precautionary

Last summer, the amateur nature videographer shot footage of a rather bold coyote stalking an elderly woman and her small dog in Burnaby, which sparked news stories and concerns about encroaching urban wildlife.

NOTES FROM CITY HALL The Hart House Restaurant, located in Avalon, the Frederick and Alice Hart residence at Deer Lake Park, will have part of its exterior replaced. The repairs on the heritage building were approved at a recent council meeting. The deterioration of some of the building’s decorative elements was discovered during a re-roofing project last year, according to a staff report. The damage requires the reconstruction of parts of the exterior, including the building’s parapets. The city, which owns the building, is covering the cost of the repairs with funds set aside in the 2012 capital plan, the report stated.

Ambulance Service recently issued a warning to parents about this very real risk, which increases as the weather warms because people are more apt to open windows and leave them unattended.

Dr. Ash Singhal of the B.C. Children’s Hospital trauma program says falls are more likely for children aged one to six, and the injuries can be severe – broken limbs, facial trauma, head injuries or even death. Secure doors and windows, don’t rely on screens to hold back children, and never underestimate the ability of a toddler to figure out a latch. Their lives just might depend on it.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR When will labour dispute end? Dear Editor:

The B.C. job action continues to drag on without a definite resolution from either the government or the (B.C. Teachers’ Federation) union. After more than a year of negotiations, both sides still persist in the futile struggle to overpower one another while parents and students suffer the consequences. When we take a closer look, the answer is actually really simple. The B.C. job action occurred as a result of an impasse over issues regarding pay. The teachers sought a 15 per cent raise over a period of three years while the government refused to grant any raise to the teachers.

This absolute denial from the government infuriated the teachers’ union, which then initiated the B.C. job action. What’s truly surprising, however, is not the job action itself, but rather how long it has carried on. Job actions are not uncommon in B.C., but rarely have they ever lasted more than a school term. The current job action has already prolonged for more than a school year, and still the teachers’ union and the government have not reached an agreement. So it is with this great frustration at the lack of progress in the B.C. job action that we, as the public, begin to think: Why has the government not managed to resolve a mere wage-issue in a the vital system of Labour Page 7

education? People have wondered why the Liberals gave MLAs an increase of 29 per cent, with 54 per cent for the premier, but refuse to grant any raise to the teachers. Of course there is the possibility that the 2008 recession may have caused the B.C. government to run short of funds to increase wages for the teachers, but according to financial research, B.C. seems to have had reasonably positive economic growth in the last year (above 2.5 per cent in 2011 with similar projections for 2012). The economic recession may be partially responsible for the hold-up in job action resolution. However, it seems likely that the government has also delayed the issue of teachers’ wages because it now believes that disregarding education-related issues will no longer evoke alarm from the people. We, as the public, must begin to express our concern for the current education system if we would truly like the government to take action and resolve this issue. The youths of today will become the foundation of tomorrow, and if we truly wish to preserve and improve upon the strength of our nation, we must ensure a stable and efficient education system for

the young generations of today. So let us voice our opinions today and all help to create a better tomorrow for British Columbia.

Falcon’s comment ‘dumb’

Dear Editor:

Finance Minister Kevin Falcon describes the PST as “stupid.” As someone who voted against his government’s alternative – the HST – I find his remark disrespectful and, for a politician, a totally dumb thing to say. Moreover, I resent him trying to guilt me and the majority of other HST referendum voters by stressing that low-income earners will no longer be eligible for the (up to) $230 a year HST tax credit. He conveniently doesn’t mention the tax savings that will occur under the PST with respect to items that once again will be tax exempt. If Falcon still feels there is an imbalance, there are many ways he can correct it, not the least of which is the introduction of a fairer and more just tax system. The fact that he has not done so as finance minister speaks volumes about his supposed concern for those at the bottom of the income scale. But maybe he’s too busy licking old wounds.

campaign chair for the B.C. Liberal party and was a key advisor on Premier Christy Clark’s leadership campaign. A leaked 2009 internal corporate memo from Exel (obtained by Business in Vancouver) shows the company thinks it could “influence the writing of the (request for proposal” in the bidding process by using its “strong relationship” with Coleman. Coleman has heatedly denied any favoritism in the bidding process but, as they say in politics, the “optics” here are brutal. If the B.C. Liberals had detected the same situation occurring under the NDP government of the 1990s, they would have gone ballistic. Of further concern is the fact that Exel also operates the distribution system in Alberta.

Industry representatives in this province characterize Alberta’s system as a chaotic mess that is driving up prices. The bidding process also proposes that government liquor stores have stand-alone profit and loss reporting, instead of the current collective reporting. Since some stores are considerably more profitable than others, this could potentially lead to the closure of some stores and the opening of more private stores (which, of course, pay their employees less than what can be earned in government stores). There are rumours in the industry that other changes are coming as well. The old issue of “dual licenses” has resurfaced (this would allow pretty well any restaurant to turn into a bar at, say, 9 p.m.) and with it comes worries about a prolif-

eration of liquor outlets, which not only greatly expands the availability of alcohol, but also makes sustaining a decent business in that industry that much more difficult. Add it all up, and you have an industry that affects a huge number of British Columbians potentially getting hammered by major changes – and all with no consultation or explanation forthcoming. Throw in the presence of two key Liberal insiders involved in a potential multimillion-dollar deal with huge political ramifications, and alarm bells start to go off. The NDP’s Simpson says he smells a rat here. He may well be right. Keep a close eye on this one, folks. Things may get ugly before it’s all over.

Almost $1 million in contract for bus shelters City council gave OK for 60 new shelters in the City of Burnaby Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Burnaby council approved two contracts for approximately $940,000 for 60 bus shelters in the city. Enseicom Inc. received a $577,833 contract for the city’s new “signature shelters,” which will be installed at high-traffic and town centre sites, according

to a staff report. Tolar Manufacturing Company was granted a $360,640 contract for its smaller bus shelters, to be installed at locations based on transit ridership priorities, according to the report. The shelters are replacing those removed by Pattison Outdoor after the city chose not to renew its contract with the company last year, according to the city’s director of engineering, Lambert Chu. There may be slight location changes with the new shelters, based on ridership requirements,

Works yard plan progresses Construction on the Still Creek works yard and recycling depot can begin now that council has approved funding for the project. At a council meeting in early May, Burnaby council approved plans to finance the project with $31.6 million from the city’s gaming funds. The city plans to move engineering and parks department operations from the Laurel Street yard to the new site. The Laurel Street yard has been the primary city works yard since the 1950s, according to Basil Luksun, director of building and planning, who spoke to the NOW about the project last year when plans were being developed. “It’s just over seven acres,” Luksun said, adding the city has grown significantly since the yard opened in 1954. “It’s extremely cramped.” The Still Creek site plans include a five-hectare engineering and parks facility, with space for waste management and recycling operations. The waste management and recycling site is Phase 1 of the project, and rezoning for that went through in May 2010. The recycling depot, which is already at Still Creek, needs to be relocated to its new location at the site north of Still Creek Avenue to make space for the new works yard and staff car park. The current recycling depot will remain open during construction of the new location, according to a report from the major civic building project coordination committee. The new works yard is Phase 2 of the project, at the site south of Still Creek Avenue. Plans for the site include the engineering department’s solid-waste operations, the sign shop, traffic bylaw enforcement and some parks department operations. -Janaya Fuller-Evans

The City of Burnaby is also taking over advertising on its bus shelters. The city hired an advertising consultant to analyze the new bus shelter program who estimated the city could recover its initial investment in six to eight years, Chu said in a previous interview. “That’s good, recovering it in less than 10 years,” he added. The city is considering partnering with smaller advertising groups, who may not be able to afford the capital cost of installing and maintaining bus shel-

ters. Chu said they might be interested in advertising opportunities on the city-owned shelters. The new designs include ad boxes, and the city has put out a request for proposals for thirdparty advertising management, he added. City staff are in the final stages of reviewing the request for proposal submissions and should have a report ready for council in the next few weeks, Chu said. jfuller-evans@ burnabynow.com

but those would be minor, he added. Pattison had approximately 80 shelters in the city, while the City of Burnaby had about 70 prior to the contract’s end. Last winter, the city purchased 20 shelters from Tolar Manufacturing to replace the Pattison bus shelters that were located in high-ridership locations, at a cost of $281,500. The total cost of replacing the 80 bus shelters came in at approximately $1.22 million, less than the $1.76 million initially estimated for the project.

HOMELESSNESS

Task force backs housing plan Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The Burnaby Task Force on Homelessness is backing a proposal to turn a local motel into a social housing project. “The task force is committed to working collaboratively with all parties that are moving forward in this process,” said Wanda Mulholland. “We have continued to support the Burnaby partnership to look for suitable sites (for transitional housing). This is a very suitable site.” The site in question is the 401 Motor Inn, at 2950 Boundary Rd., on the border with Vancouver. The Portland Hotel Society, which runs housing projects in Vancouver, needs City of Burnaby approval to move the project forward. “We want to propose some interim transitional housing. So this would be (for) people from Burnaby so they could stay for a couple of years and try to do better or try to get more permanent housing. There would be some supports and 24-hour staffing.

That would be the plan,” said Mark Townsend, executive director of the Portland Hotel Society. “What we are really asking from Burnaby council is some contribution, like being supportive of rezoning, or supportive of waiving development fees.” Townsend described the situation as a “house of cards,” where one level of government wants to see what the other level will do before committing to the project. “Obviously these are issues for senior levels of government,” Townsend said, “but there are things cities can do without spending the money on buildings and staffing, and it seems to me that they are willing to do that, they are willing to be creative.” Even if Burnaby backs the proposal, it doesn’t mean it will happen for sure, although Townsend said he remains hopeful. The motel has more than 30 units, and Townsend said the owner is considering leasing it to a group like the society. “In the future he wants to turn it

into condos, so this is just an interim thing, but a good interim thing,” Townsend said. Jeanne Fike, executive director with Burnaby Family Life, is also backing the project. “I hope the city will provide whatever support they can for this opportunity to become a reality,” she said. “Burnaby Family Life is deeply concerned about the dire circumstances of many families we serve. Some teen mothers are trading sex for a place to sleep with their babies; immigrant and refugee families are living in overcrowded, substandard conditions and do not understand that there is legislation to protect their rights. The lack of affordable and adequate housing along with the lack of affordable child care is the most challenging concern faced by families living in poverty.” The Portland Hotel Society made a presentation to Burnaby councillors at a May 14 meeting, and city staff are now revising a report in response, which should be ready in a couple of weeks.

Zellers closes pharmacy business T

he Zellers Pharmacy locations at Metropolis at Metrotown and Brentwood Town Centre have closed. According to a letter sent to customers from David Pickwoad, vicepresident of Zellers Drug Stores, prescription and patient records from the Brentwood location were transferred to the Save-On Foods Pharmacy at Madison Centre, 4399 Lougheed Hwy. Records from the Metrotown Zellers Pharmacy were transferred to the Save-On Foods at Metropolis at Metrotown, according to a message on the pharmacy’s voicemail. The Zellers Pharmacy business, based in Ontario, has been closed by the company. A group of Zellers pharmacists in Ontario tried to block the sale of patient records to other retailers, according to multiple media reports, but the Ontario Supreme Court rejected the injunction application at the end of April. The Zellers locations at Brentwood and Metrotown are two of the more than 100 stores being taken over by Target Canada and turned into Target locations starting in 2013. Zellers store closing sales have started at various locations in Canada, though none in the Lower Mainland.

Challenging times: Zayne Mioch, Kirmac production manager and leadership mentor (left) and Peter Vajda, Kirmac’s director of operations, are using on-the-job training to address the widening skills gap in the industry.

Kirmac filling trade skill gap Employers such as Kirmac get creative to make sure new hires have necessary training Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

In an attempt to address a widening skills gap in its industry, Kirmac Collision Services has introduced a new on-the-job training program. Kirmac, which has two locations in Burnaby, hired on director of operations Peter Vajda about six months ago to start the program. “My position, and the program itself, have basically been to face market challenges,” Vajda says. “It’s getting very difficult to attract quality employees.” Two market trends are creating a dual challenge for the industry, he explains – the majority of the workforce will be retiring in the next 20 years, but there are fewer students going into the skilled journeymen trades. “Kids today are not interested in entering the skilled trades, when we’re talking about the shop floor,” he says. “Finding people that are really qualified to meet the expectations of customers today is really

www.Burnabynow.com

difficult, so we really needed to put an emphasis on hiring the right people.” So Vajda developed an on-the-job training program for the company. Kirmac has two training streams, he says – shop floor employees hired out of local community colleges using a journeymen/ apprentice training model; and front office staff trained by mentors within the company, with more experienced employees working with less experienced employees via a management leadership program. Vajda has developed a good relationship with Vancouver Community College in particular, he says, as he worked with them through his previous employer to arrange on-the-job training. “I can go and sit down with instructors at VCC and find out who the best students are, and hire right out of the schools,” he says. “If they’re going to be a Red Seal (automotive) painter or a Red Seal body (repair technician), they’re going to go back to school every year for five weeks to do apprenticeship training,” Vajda explains, adding that it takes about four to five years to become a journeyman, if the apprentice completes the required hours for each level within a year. The Kirmac program helps students get necessary hours towards their journey-

man’s certificate and return to work after they’ve completed each level of apprenticeship training, he explains. The program has had a great response from management and employees, he says, adding it is quite innovative for the collision industry. “In this stage of the game, I’d say we’re very progressive in doing it this way,” Vajda says. “I haven’t heard of any others in our industry doing it like this.” The program has about 12 participants thus far, according to Vajda. And Kirmac is hiring continually for its two Burnaby locations – at 5180 Lougheed Hwy. and 6692 Royal Oak Ave., he adds. “We’re always looking for talent, especially in Burnaby,” Vajda says. The company plans to expand the training program into the United States, as well. Kirmac currently has 10 locations in Canada and 12 locations in the U.S. “We’ve been very successful in the U.S. Actually, we’re very proud of that,” he says. The current skills gap isn’t just a problem for companies such as Kirmac, but for other industries as well, according to Sandra Miles, president of Miles Employment Group.

Training: Issue everywhere continued from page 11

After the recession, employers expected it to be easier to find the exact skill set they were looking for when hiring, but that hasn’t turned out to be the case, Miles explains. “What we’re seeing is employers want people job-ready, and they don’t want to train,” she says. As many small and mid-size companies cut their workforces during the recession, they don’t have the resources or time to train new hires now that they’re getting busy again, Miles explains. “They want talent, but they’re not willing or able to support on-boarding new talent,” she says. This had led to a lot of unfilled jobs in the market, due to a lack of training, she says. But there are ways to bring on new tal-

ent that aren’t costly, she says. Simple things like on-boarding orientation programs – programs to help new hires transition into positions, including having proper supplies and equipment ready for them – are a good start, according to Miles. Mentoring programs are also a good way to fill skill gaps, she adds. “An internal mentoring program can go a long way, where you pair a seasoned, trusted expert in your company to mentor a new employee into that role,” she says. Employers can also widen their expectations and look for complementary skill sets when hiring, Miles points out. “A really good thing to be flexible on,” she says, “is that skill sets are transferable, and they don’t need to be from your industry.” jfuller-evans@burnabynow.com

Samsung opens first store

Samsung Electronics Canada is opening its first retail store location in Canada at Metropolis at Metrotown. Samsung made the announcement in a press release on Thursday. “Samsung is excited to bring a new level of retail experience to Canadians,” said James Politeski, president of Samsung Electronics Canada, in the release. “Our vision is to provide an immersive space where consumers can interact with our products in totally new ways and enjoy unprecedented service levels.” The store is slated to open this summer.

Summer job warning

The Better Business Bureau of B.C. is warning young people to be wary of “too good to be true” job opportunities this summer. The bureau issued a press release of its

top 10 job scam tip-offs, to prepare high school and college students as they begin looking for summer work. The tip-offs are: employers who offer big bucks for simple tasks; requests for upfront payments for business opportunities; employers who ask applicants to wire money; and pressure to take an unsolicited job or make a business investment immediately. Others include job offers without an interview, or without first meeting the applicant; a refusal to provide full details about the job in writing; missing or suspicious professional references for the business; missing contact information, or information that doesn’t make sense; requirements to buy merchandise, equipment or information to get started; and a bad rating with the Better Business Bureau.

BCIT’s tech education students hit the road with unique drag race

And they’re off! Technology teacher education diploma students at the British Columbia Institute of Technology participated in the ninth annual Vehicle in a Box competition on Wednesday. Five student teams, with four people each, had to assemble three-wheeled vehicles powered by an electrical hub motor intended for a bicycle, according to a BCIT press release. The future shop teachers had to beat the clock, taking the parts out of their boxes, building the vehicles and competing in drag and slalom races at the Burnaby campus. Teams were judged on timed acceleration, weight, braking, construction quality and overall design. – Janaya Fuller-Evans

Front lawn dining GREEN SCENE

P

Anne Marrison

redictions about a massive future earthquake or devastating floods sometimes find me looking out into our lawn and musing, “At least we’ll be able to eat the dandelions!” It would be a good choice: dandelions (Taraxacum officinale) are said to have much more vitamin A than broccoli and almost as much iron as raw beet greens. Seed of cultivated dandelion varieties is now easy to obtain. Their main problem is bitterness – though this can be reduced by choosing young leaves and boiling or frying them. An alternative is tying up large dandelion plants so that the inner leaves are blanched. But dandelions are only one of many delicious edible weeds. Stinging nettles (Urtica dioica) are another favourite. These become stingless and as delicious as spinach after being boiled. As a child,

it was my job in spring to put on my dad’s big leather bee-gloves and pick stinging nettles for dinner. Later, mother made me drink the water the nettles were boiled in. She said it would purify my blood. Apparently there’s a lot of protein in stinging nettles plus vitamin C, A and iron. Another spinach substitute is Lambs Quarters (Chenopodium album) which grows about 60 centimetres tall and has grey-green diamondshaped leaves with a white floury substance on the underside. The tiny green knot-like flowers produce immense quantities of seed. Lambs Quarters leaves are very tasty when boiled like spinach, though, just like spinach and nettles, boiling shrinks them drastically. Leaves of spinach and lambs quarters tend to contain more oxalic acid than most other vegetables so it’s not a good idea to eat large quantities routinely. This is also true of sheep sorrel (Rumex acetosella). Sheep sorrel is another salad green with a fresh taste that’s somewhat acidic because the leaves contain oxalic acid. Sheep sorrel has fine, running roots and tiny red flowers

like little bunches of knots up against the stem. In early spring, chickweed (Stellaria media) grows rapidly into a mat-like groundcover in gardens with rich soil. The early leaves along with tiny white flowers can be used as a salad ingredient with a delicate, lettuce-like taste. It’s best when grown rapidly, early and snipped into small segments before using. Then there’s garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata) which has clusters of white, four-petalled flowers and wrinkled, bumpy-looking leaves with pointy edges. It tastes and smells of garlic and mustard. But it’s one of the most invasive weeds I’ve ever encountered. If garlic mustard is recommended to you by a friend, you might want to think again and choose cultivated mustard instead. It’s important to securely identify all these plants before eating them. Even when identification seems secure, it’s safest to taste very small quantities at first. People with food allergies should be especially careful. Anne Marrison is happy to answer readers’ questions. Email amarrison@shaw.ca.

Alfie Lau

lex and Claudia Perperidis were all set to celebrate their 20th year as owners of Paros Taverna on North Road in Coquitlam when the long awaited Evergreen Line got its final go-ahead and their property suddenly had to be vacated. But no worries for the couple, who had to look only 1.4 kilometres away to find another place to set up shop again. Anducci’s was a wellknown Italian restaurant at 9604 Cameron St., in the Lougheed Plaza, and after the owners there decided to take a break, the Perperidis family had found their new home. On Feb. 15, the restaurant went from Italian to Greek, but what hasn’t changed is the great food, attention to detail and service that has made Paros a favourite in the Lougheed Town Centre area. “I’ve always been in the restaurant business,” said Alex on a recent weekday. “In Greece, they say owning a restaurant is like having another wife. … I’ve been lucky that we’re celebrating 20 years as owners of Paros this summer, and the restaurant has been open since 1986.” Alex actually has the

restaurant to thank for his relationship with Claudia. “I hired Clauds 12 years ago,” said Alex. “We were both coming out of relationships, and we started hanging out together, and look where we are now.” The couple now oversees a family of four – the children range in age from seven to 19 – and like most family businesses, there’s always work for the kids. “I tell them they have to start here when they’re 14,” said Alex. “Make that 13,” said Claudia, as their 12-yearold son turns 13 in May and may soon be bussing tables and washing dishes. In the kitchen, Alex and his staff are Greek experts, but after having taken over an old Italian restaurant, they decided to keep the pizza and pasta on the menu. “Pizza is a big part of my background,” said Alex. “Between 1983 and 1993, I sold pizza and that’s how I made the money to buy Paros. … I love serving pizza.” And while the Italian dishes are good, the majority of Paros customers still come for traditional Greek favourites. “Our three most popular dishes, by far are the cali (calamari), roast lamb and chicken souvlaki,” said Alex. “By weight, the lamb chops are number 1, but by orders, it’s the chicken.” Alex then brings out his big three, and the roast lamb shoulder is so tender that, as advertised, you

don’t need a knife because you can “cut it with a fork.” The lamb literally melts in my mouth, and the portions are so plentiful that I barely have enough room to finish off the huge rice, potato and Greek salad sides that come with the dish. Photographer Larry Wright is working hard on the chicken souvlaki, and we mix in bites of the calamari as well, which is juicy and flavourful without being oily. For dessert, we try the tiramisu – which can feed two or three quite easily. I can taste the mascarpone and it is sinfully delicious. Claudia’s also brought along some traditional Greek baklava, and the sweet pastry is full of the flavour of nuts and syrup that makes it such a signature dish. Show up most days and either Alex or Claudia is there to welcome their old friends to their new digs. “We do take some days off, and Sunday is family day,” said Claudia. “I guess that’s the beauty of owning your own business.” “I say that I take another day off each week with every decade I get older,” said Alex. “But it’s fun, and it’s always going to be a big part of my life.” Paros Taverna, located at 9604 Cameron St., is open for lunch and dinner every day (dinner only on holidays). To make a reservation, call 604-444-4788 or go to www.parostaverna.com.

Local pub: The Village Inn Pub has closed after nearly 20 years in Burnaby. It’s located near Lougheed Town Centre.

Longtime pub closes up Pub manager says they had ‘the best customers’ at longtime city institution Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

The Village Inn Pub, tucked just behind Lougheed Town Centre in the Lougheed Village complex, has closed after 19 years. The pub at 9532 Erickson Dr. closed at the beginning of May, according to general manager Wes Taylor.

“The people who bought the property didn’t want to run the pub,” he said. The pub is part of the four-tower Lougheed Village rental suite and retail complex, which sold for more than $80 million to Beach Properties, according to The Vancouver Sun. “We had some of the best customers, and they appreciated the value that they got here,” Taylor said of the pub. “It’s very unfortunate.” Taylor said there aren’t any plans at this point to open in a new location. jfuller-evans@burnabynow.com

KEEPING FIT

Health benefits of lemon juice KEEPING FIT

I

Shaun Karp

f you love the tangy taste of fresh lemon in your water, that may be reason enough to squeeze in a few drops every time your pour a glass. But what many people don’t know is how many health benefits they’ll get from this simple, tasty addition – just make sure you’re using the juice of a fresh lemon, not the stuff from concentrate. If you sometimes have trouble after meals, you might like to know that lemon juice mixed in warm water is helpful with a variety of digestion problems, including nausea, heartburn, bloating, belching and parasites. Furthermore, regularly drinking lemon juice can take care of constipation problems by aiding in regular bowel movements. Lemon juice also helps to regulate and liquefy bile flow, which adds to the overall health of the liver. The importance of your liver function is often overlooked, but it plays an integral role in detoxifying the blood of alcohol and drugs, in maintaining energy between meals and even in maintaining weight. The liver controls the metabolism of fat, which means it breaks fat down as your body needs it. This is why keeping your liver healthy is important for maintaining weight. The potassium found in lemon juice is an excellent source of energy, so if you’re feeling a bit lethargic you can give your brain and nerve cells

a boost with a few drops in your water. If you worry about your blood pressure, you might find also find some comfort in the potassium content; it helps to lower blood pressure, and thus is helpful for people with hypertension. The potassium also keeps dizziness and nausea from occurring and reduces mental stress and depression. But potassium isn’t the only helpful vitamin: calcium, magnesium and vitamin C are all abundant in this citrus fruit. It can seem like there’s no limit to the advantages of this simple drink. People with breathing difficulties, like asthma or other respiratory diseases, can benefit from the regular intake of warm water and lemon juice, as it works to clear chest congestion. If you want to fight wrinkles and blackheads, you’ll be interested in the anti-aging benefits of lemon. This juice helps to detoxify your body, which can often be seen through healthy, glowing skin. Finally, lemon juice can even benefit an unborn child; it will help to build their bones when an expectant mother drinks it regularly. Regularly drinking lemon water is one of the easiest – and tastiest – ways to look after your health. For taste, one lemon per litre is perfect; to reap the numerous benefits of lemon, make sure to squeeze the juice of the lemon into your water before enjoying. As always, make sure to drink at least two litres of water per day to keep your system clean and your body hydrated. Shaun Karp is a certified personal trainer.

Another kick at the cup Tom Berridge

sports editor

It took more than a little bit of sibling rivalry to get Milan Gajic back on the lacrosse floor. A three-time winner of a Minto Cup Canadian junior lacrosse championship with the junior A Burnaby Lakers, Milan spent the last decade playing professional hockey in the American and East Coast hockey leagues, as well as in Europe. This Thursday, the eldest of the Gajic brothers will join his three younger siblings for the first time in their collective organized sports careers playing on the same team. The four, including Nenad, Ilija and youngest brother Alex, will make their familial debut with the New Westminster Salmonbellies at the Western Lacrosse Association home opener at Queen’s Park Arena against the Nanaimo Timbermen on May 24. “I was 50/50 on it,” the 30-year-old Milan said of his return to the indoor box lacrosse game. “I was always thinking it would be nice to play with my brothers.

In his heyday: Milan Gajic, seen here in the 2002 Minto Cup, was a former game MVP and three-time cup winner with the junior A Burnaby Lakers. after 10 years on the ice. “The puck doesn’t bounce like the ball does,” he said with a laugh. “It will be fun to see if I can get past centre.” Milan earned an NCAA hockey scholarship at the University of Michigan and was picked up in the NHL entry draft by the former Atlanta Thrashers. He played his last hockey game with the Victoria Salmon Kings of the East Coast league in 2010 and spent all of last year resting his body from

the rigours of being a pro athlete. With his three younger brothers playing pro lacrosse in Denver for the Colorado Mammoth in the National winter league, Milan decided maybe the Western Lacrosse Association might be his last opportunity for some quality time together with his brothers. “It would be nice to be around them for an extended period of time,” Milan said. “It will be kind of nice spending some real

time rather than just barbecue and dinner with me.” Milan doesn’t expect his return to the game to be an emotional one but it could turn into that as the summer season draws to an end. “I think it will be,” Milan said. “It’s not a regret of mine (not playing together). But it’s something I kind of wanted.” Milan will make his onfloor debut with his brothers on Thursday Queen’s Park Arena at 7 p.m.

Pipers pip Burnaby teams from AAA girls’ provincials Tom Berridge

Tough past week for manshort junior A Lakers Tom Berridge

sports editor

Burnaby school soccer teams took a back seat to North Shore at the provincial girls’ soccer playdowns for a third straight year. The district champion Burnaby North Vikings lost 3-2 to North Shore runner-up Argyle Pipers in the final zone qualifying match to the provincials last Thursday. Earlier in the week, the Burnaby South Rebels were also eliminated from AAA contention following a 41 loss to the same Pipers’ squad. In the final zone qualifier, Courtney Sine got the Vikings off to a 1-0 lead. Argyle scored back-toback goals to take the lead, but Danielle Pinoni drew North level with the gametying goal. The North Vancouver side won the match with a late second-half tally.

Fallen comrades: Both Burnaby North and Burnaby South lost out to Argyle in separate B.C. high school zone girls’ provincial soccer qualifying games last week.

Wranglers in hockey final with ’Blades

Michael Busto of Burnaby registered an assist for the Las Vegas Wranglers in a 7-2 loss to the Florida Everblades in Game 2 of the best-of-seven East Coast Hockey League championship playoff final on May 15. Florida currently leads the series 2-1, with Game 4 set for Tuesday night (played after NOW deadlines).

The Burnaby Lakers saw their B.C. Junior Lacrosse League record fall to 15-0 following a tough three-game swing that began last week in Coquitlam. The juniors, 15-10 losers to the as yet unbeaten Adanacs, followed up that promising outing with a 9-7 loss to the Delta Islanders in Ladner on Saturday. Burnaby then fielded a short bench before dropping a 14-3 return match at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre against the A’s. In Delta, Bryan Gillis led the visitors with three goals in the final period in an attempted rally that fell just short. Kris Liset and Cameron Clark also had four-point outings for the Lakers. Liset currently leads all Lakers with 11 goals and 17 total points. At home, Burnaby was victiminzed off the opening faceoff by Reid Reinholdt and never fully recovered. The first-place Adanacs scored five goals in each of the first two periods and then put the Lakers away in the closing stanza with four more. Coquitlam’s Vinny Ricci, who had just 13 points in his rookie year last season, had a career night, scoring three times and assisting on five other goals, including factoring in on seven of the team’s nine goals in the final two periods. “We wanted to get a good start. Ten goals was too much,” said Ricci, in response to allowing double-figure goals to Burnaby last week at home. “We just

wanted to keep going. It starts in intermediate. It’s our motto – we just want to give our all for all 60 minutes.” League scoring leader Matthew Dinsdale and Cole Shafer chipped in with two goals and four helpers apiece, while Matt Symes also garnered a hat trick for the winners. Burnaby keeper Xander McDonald was busy in goal, stopping 39 Coquitlam shots. Coquitlam keeper Davide DiRuscio, who took the Six Nations Arrows to the Ontario junior league final in 2010, registered the win in goal, allowing just three goals on 28 shots to lead the league with a 4.90 goals against average. Burnaby’s only even-strength goal came in the third period from Alberta newcomer Adam Phillips, who slotted his first-ever junior A goal on transition from Matthew Simpson with the game well out of reach. “Coquitlam’s very good. Their systems are pretty flawless,” said the 19-year-old former junior B Edmonton Warrior runner who was playing in just his second game for Burnaby. “But we work pretty well together. We have to get shots off at the right time and move the ball fast and smart. But it’s early in the season.” Burnaby has a little time to regroup. The Lakers travel to Victoria on Saturday before skipping their usual Sunday home date because of Burnaby high school graduations taking place at the Copeland centre. They are back at home on June 3 against the Langley Thunder.

Obituaries

WELCH, Taffy Aug 20, 1946 - May 10, 2012 Taffy passed away peacefully surrounded by his family. Born in Cornwall England, he came to BC as a herdsman in 1976. In 1980 he started at Dairyland, working there until his retirement in 2011. Taffy had a true passion for soccer - playing himself, watching his children play and coaching. His favorite team was Arsenal (getting up at 4:30am to watch a game!) followed closely by the Whitecaps. He loved camping with his family and sitting around the campfire. He had a keen sense of humour that never wavered and loved a good fart joke. Taffy will be greatly missed by his wife Jill, his children Nyron (Veronique), Alan, Ian (April), Kate (Dallas), Lindsey (Thomas), all his wonderful grandchildren, brothers Dennis (Liz) and Michael (Lynne) and his extended family and many friends. A celebration of his life to be held at a later date.
