MILLIONS OF SAND GRAINS LEAD TO WISDOM
Edmonds centre is behind Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
Progress on the new Edmonds pool and community centre has fallen behind again, with an expected completion date for a “substantial” amount of the project now set for February. The delay was due to weather conditions in June, which prevented the contractor from finishing the roofing on schedule, according to a report from the city’s major civic building project coordination committee. The adjustment set the schedule back about four weeks, the report stated, but the project is still on budget. The centre was about 75 per cent completed as of Oct. 16. Last February, Dave Ellenwood, the director of the city’s parks, recreation and cultural services department, said the project’s completion date was pushed back to December from the previous estimate of midNovember. “We’re hoping they can make up the time, and they’re always looking to do that,” he said at the time. “Our foremost concern is the quality, and if things like this weather hold them up, we don’t want them to cut corners, we want them to just carry on with the schedule.” The opening date for the centre will probably be four to six weeks after the completion date, Ellenwood said. Once construction is finished, the city needs to have the centre inspected

Spiritual art form: Buddhist Tibetan monks from the Dzongkar
Choede Monastery in southern India visited Burnaby’s Nikkei Centre and spent four days working on a sand mandala, a practice dating back 2,500 years. Fine coloured sand is funnelled through metal tubes to create the geometric patterns of the mandala, which is meant to foster compassion, patience, love and wisdom. Once completed, the creation is destroyed, and the process begins anew. The monks are travelling to various cities in Canada creating sand mandalas.

CITY OF BURNABY EXPLORES BUSINESS CONNECTIONS IN TAIWAN
From bagpipes to potential trade connections Janaya Fuller-Evans
Burnaby could be sharing wind power with Taiwan one day. During the City of Burnaby’s recent trip to Taiwan, Taichung Mayor Jason Hu asked if Burnaby could send over a bagpipe instructor, as the city would like to have a pipe band, according to Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan. “I said, ‘oh my gosh, all these Taiwanese
in kilts, now that really is becoming a global world,’” Corrigan said, laughing. “We were talking about other cultural exchanges we could have.” Corrigan, three councillors, and representatives from the Burnaby Board of Trade and the Taiwan Chamber of Commerce flew to Taipei, Taiwan, on Sept. 20. The three destinations in Taiwan were Taipei, which signed a friendship agreement with Burnaby in 2009; Taichung, which also signed a friendship agreement
with the city in 2009; and Kaohsiung, which recently opened the largest solar energy plant in Taiwan. The group also went to five destinations in China – Zhuhai, which has an economic trade agreement with the Burnaby Board of Trade; Zhongshan, which became a sister city in 2011; Shenzhen, where the delegation visited an LED light manufacturing plant, with stopovers in Hong Kong and Macau. “It was so busy,” Corrigan said. “They’re
very keen in Asia on these relationships and building these relationships.” But the city has to be careful to maintain the relationships it has already established, he added. In Taichung and also in Zhongshan, China, Corrigan said he discussed how to increase communication and business relationships. In Taiwan, the National Science Council showed interest in building relationships Asia Page 4
ICBC, union reach a deal
Agreement not finalized until union members, board votes Janaya Fuller-Evans
The Insurance Corporation of British Columbia reached a tentative four-year agreement with the Canadian Office and Professional Employees’ Union, Local 378, on Friday, according to a press release from the union. The agreement cannot be ratified until it is voted on by the union members and agreed to by ICBC’s board of directors. Approximately 4,600 of the union’s members work for ICBC. “This agreement secures some important foundational elements we will build on in future negotiations,” David Black, COPE 378 president, said in the release. “The wage increases will keep our members from falling further behind, and they will, at long last, get maternity and parental leave top-up.” The agreement includes staggered wage increases of one per cent for the period from July 1 of this year to Jan. 1, another one per cent increase on Jan. 1, another for next July 1, and another for Oct. 1, 2013. The agreement covers the period from June 1, 2010 to June 30, 2014, according to the release. The previous agreement expired March 31, 2010. The union was told that the B.C. government’s net-zero wage mandate for 2010 and 2011 applied to the members, so there were zero increases for those two years, according to Sage Aaron, media relations contact for the union. ICBC will also top up maternity and parental leave benefits as of July 1 of next year. The Crown corporation has committed to conducting a new workload study, the release stated. 6

some work continuing to the end of October. The contractor has also been working on tiling the pool tanks. Deck tiles are expected to be installed early this month, according to the report, and tiling in the change room was set to begin at the end of October. Mechanical and electrical work is ongoing, the report added. Plans for the pool area include a sixlane, 25-metre pool, a leisure pool, warm swim and therapy lanes, a lazy river with two channels, and double water-
slides, according to a press release from the centre’s architect, CEI Architecture. There will also be a 12,000-squarefoot twin gymnasium, multi-purpose rooms, child-minding spaces, spaces for seniors and youth, art rooms, a fitness studio, a fitness centre and a central atrium social space, the release added. The centre is being built to LEED silver certification environmentally sustainable building standards. The cost for the new centre was estimated at about $30 million. firstname.lastname@example.org

Asia: China focusing on environmentally sustainable business practices with science parks in Burnaby, according to Corrigan. One of the major focuses he noticed on the trip was a draw towards environmentally conscious business practices in China and Taiwan, he added. Paul Holden, president and CEO of the Burnaby Board of Trade, said he noticed the same thing in China. “One thing that certainly came across to me was the fact that the city and governments over there are realizing in order for them to develop their relationships with the rest of the world, they have to develop environmental sustainability practices,” he said. Holden didn’t take part in the Taiwan leg of the trip but spent a few days in Hong Kong before joining Burnaby civic and business representatives in China, he said. “It was very informative, very interesting,” Holden said of the trip. It was Holden’s first trip to Asia with the board, but he had previously lived in Hong Kong for six years, he added. During this visit to Hong Kong he looked into training services offered by agencies that might be of interest to Burnaby businesses, Holden said. The opportunities for successful businesses in China were evident, he

Building permit backlog cleared – back to normal Janaya Fuller-Evans
Though building permit backlogs grew throughout the region over the spring and summer, Burnaby’s director of planning and building, Lou Pelletier, says the turnaround time in Burnaby is now back on track. The average number of permits for single and two-family home construction is 41 per month – though for 2012 up to the end of September, it was 46, according to an email from Pelletier. The city issued 67 permits in July and 58 in August in that category, he added. “This did result in a temporary extension to our typical processing times,” he wrote. “Permit volumes have returned to average levels in September and October.” The usual processing time is four to six weeks, Pelletier said. This is in line with the regional average of four to five weeks for a single-family home, which was mentioned in a recent City of Coquitlam staff report, according to an Oct. 17 Coquitlam NOW article. The article also stated City of Coquitlam staff had surveyed the turnaround times for single-family construction permits in 10 nearby municipalities and Burnaby was at the bottom of the pack, with an average 10-week turnaround. But Peter Simpson, president and CEO of the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association, said members haven’t been mentioning Burnaby specifically. “I can honestly say I haven’t had anybody pick up the phone and complain about it,” he said in a recent phone interview, adding he’d spoken with a renovator, a small volume builder and a highrise builder, and they hadn’t had concerns about Burnaby. “In the 19 years I’ve been doing this job as president of the homebuilders’ associa-
tion, I’ve never had anyone voice serious complaints about Burnaby,” he added. Burnaby has high levels of transparency and accountability and is well organized, Simpson said, adding contractors and developers seem to have good experiences with plan checkers and know what is expected of them. The association has found some municipalities in the region are having backlog issues, he added, with more permit applications coming through or in some cases, staff shortages affecting turnarounds. Like Burnaby, all cities should have the ability for plan checkers to answer questions, Ralph Belisle, president of TQ Construction, said, speaking to the issue as a general contractor. Burnaby is well organized and has good staff, he said, and allows for good, open dialogue with plan checkers. However, Burnaby does differ from some jurisdictions where Belisle is encouraged to speak with the head of the planning or building departments, he added. “In Burnaby and Vancouver, I’m not,” he said. Because Belisle is a renovator, often the answers he needs are not clearly expressed in a city’s building codes, he explained, so he needs to go to the city for more clarification. The introduction of a renovation query desk at the City of Vancouver was a great idea, he said, adding more cities should have staff specifically there to answer questions about renovations. Burnaby and Vancouver were prepared for the rush following the recession, according to Belisle, while other municipalities in the region were not. He has not heard of any problems arising with permits for his projects in Coquitlam, he said in reference to the Coquitlam city staff report on its backlog. email@example.com

While the veterans of the First World War are now gone, and there are fewer veterans of the Korean War and the Second World War, Canada is making new veterans every year.

Whether you agree with some of Canada’s wars or not, the poppy campaign helps those who have volunteered to put their lives on the line, usually for less pay than they could have found staying at home. So wear a poppy, in commemoration of the sacrifices of those who have come before us, and in fervent hope that no future generation will be asked to risk their lives again to keep us safe.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR George Derby layoffs a mistake Dear Editor:
Re: City veterans’ home to lay off unionized staff, Burnaby NOW, Nov. 2, 2012 As the spouse of a George Derby resident, I was distressed to read the Burnaby NOW article announcing staff layoffs there. Through almost daily visits, I have observed at George Derby an extraordinarily positive collective work ethic that has made it an excellent nursing home. I have observed Marlene in the special care unit, who performs her required duties with an extraordinarily high level of dedication and competence, while at the same time listening to and comforting often incoherent and rambling residents

and families of residents in distress. I imagine there are many others like her whom I have not met. These unit clerks and reception desk staff have been given notice. This is a grave error. If ongoing patient contact was cited as one reason to keep or to dismiss staff, then it should be noted that many of these “clerks and desk personnel” have detailed knowledge about and hourly contact with patients and with their families. I have seen recreation organizers who go beyond what might be expected to entice residents to participate. I understand that the jobs of these activity workers also are being cut despite their high level of patient contact. I have not even mentioned the outsourcing of cleaning services that may save money

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Grave error to dismiss staff continued from page 6
in the short run but increase the incidence of flu, C. difficile and other infectious diseases in the long run, costing innocent lives and requiring expensive cleanups. I think the management of George Derby is making a very bad mistake by thinking that it can save Fraser Health money by contracting out so many services. It may find individuals who will perform the formal, listed responsibilities of the current staff for less money. However, I doubt that they will go above and beyond what is in their job descriptions, the way the current staff does, to ensure the residents’ health, safety, comfort and well-being. Inevitably, Fraser Health will have to deal with residents who are sicker and more distressed than it faces now and residents’ families with more complaints, all requiring more staff time and medical attention. I am dismayed not only about the decision to outsource these and other services but also about the failure of George Derby management to consult meaningfully with staff and with residents’ families. In September, George Derby spent the money to send a letter to “residents, families, volunteers and friends” about the labour dispute at the nursing home but sadly did not or could not use this as an opportunity to solicit their advice and input. I was told then that labour rules prohibited such consultation once a job action was initiated. Perhaps so, but surely George Derby management should have initiated extensive, in-depth consultations with staff and with residents’ families three years ago, when the nursing home’s budgetary problems first became apparent. Peggy Meyer, New Westminster
Fraser Health has a plan Dear Editor:
Re: Listen to the nurses Burnaby NOW,
Oct. 31, 2012 B.C. Nurses’ Union president Debra McPherson is correct in stating that nurses have a critical role to play in reducing C. difficile infection (CDI) rates. McPherson is not correct in stating that Fraser Health does not have a plan in place. Fraser Health has implemented a comprehensive infection prevention and control strategy to reduce C. difficile and other infections at Burnaby Hospital and across Fraser Health. This strategy, which builds on work underway for several years, includes enhanced cleaning, the hiring of additional frontline infection control practitioners and a renewed focus on hand hygiene and infection prevention and control practices. In addition, Fraser Health has made physical improvements to Burnaby Hospital, including reducing the number of three-bed patient rooms and increasing the number of two-bed and single patient rooms by opening a new 19-bed medicine unit. These strategies have resulted in a 35 per cent reduction in the CDI rate across Fraser Health (11.3 cases per 10,000 patient days in 2011/12 reduced to 7.3 cases per 10,000 patient days year-to-date 2012/13) and a 40 per cent reduction at Burnaby Hospital (15.2 cases per 10,000 patient days in 2011/12 reduced to nine cases per 10,000 patient days year-to-date 2012/13). However, we know there is still work to be done. Fraser Health is committed to reducing these rates further to achieve the Canadian benchmark rate of six cases per 10,000 patient days. We are confident that by committing to the strategy and actions underway and remaining open to new ideas and solutions we will continue to see steady progress in reducing CDI rates both at Burnaby Hospital and across Fraser Health. Dr. Elizabeth Brodkin, Fraser Health and Cathie Heritage, Burnaby Hospital
FOI: No documentation continued from page 6
“We’ve been seeing things getting worse,” Gogolek told me. “There’s something really wrong here.” Reporters are already used to getting documents through FOI that are heavily redacted. But the problems now appear to be growing well beyond that. Gogolek found the lack of documentation surrounding Boessenkool’s departure “unacceptable” and said uncovering the use of a cabinet minister’s
private emails in a supposedly public consultation process confirmed deep suspicions that this occurs much more frequently. Gogolek would like to see the freedom of information law amended to include a clause that would require public officials to keep records. Called a “duty to document,” such a change could go a long way to end what appears to be a culture of silence that has grown in parts of the government.
The freedom of information commissioner is investigating B.C. FIPA’s concerns. Let’s hope it leads to some bright lights being shone in corners of government that right now are fairly dark. Who knows? Maybe the next time a powerful staffer leaves under a cloud, someone might make a note or two about why. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

If you regularly encounter ice, unplowed snow, or slush—or if you drive in temperatures that regularly dip below 7°C/45°F—you can benefit from winter tires, also known as “snow tires”. Regular all season tires lose elasticity when the temperature dips below 7°C/45°F. Winter tires are constructed with a special compound that allows them to retain more elasticity in cold temperatures. Technologically engineered tread designs prevent snow build-up and improve ice and snow traction more than ever before—so you get a better grip on the road and better control of your vehicle. Winter tires provide better control for all vehicles—even 4WD vehicles—on snow and ice-covered roads. Whether you drive a car, SUV, pick-up or light truck, you’ll find four winter tires help you get a better grip on the road in difficult driving conditions. Without winter tires you are more likely to fishtail on corners and spin out on that icy hill.

‘ONE DAY I BOUGHT A BED. THEN, ONE DAY I BOUGHT A HUNDRED BEDS.’ – JEFF SCHWARZ
City’s liquidation king keeping it real
irect Liquidation owner Jeff Schwarz often sees the value in what others cast off. The Burnaby business man and star of The Liquidator, a reality television show airing on OLN, began his bargain hunting and selling business almost 20 years ago, when his wife’s great-aunt passed away. The family was trying to figure out what to do with her belongings, so he offered $500 for the lot and took it to ON MY BEAT the Vancouver Flea Janaya Fuller-Evans Market to sell it off on the weekends. “I saw potential,” he says of the belongings, which filled about 50 pick-up truckloads. “I knew that I was going to run out of inventory, so I sort of had to figure out how to get more inventory.” He then went on to deal in secondhand furniture, he says, working his way up to his current business – buying and selling big batches of products from his 30,000-square-foot warehouse in Burnaby. “One day I bought a bed,” he says. “Then, one day I bought a hundred beds.” The space at 6990 Greenwood St. is filled with stacks of photo albums, baby toys, film props and furniture as far as the eye can see. Within all that chaos, Schwarz and the crew from OLN film his television show. Schwarz makes call after call, attempting to sell off a large batch of hockey jerseys. Meanwhile, the camera crew works around him, as do his employees. Customers wander in and out, and one man approaches, offering to sell him computer headsets. When he finds out they aren’t Bluetooth, Schwarz shakes his head – he’s already got a large batch of Bluetooth headsets he’s trying to sell. “I’ll make you an offer, but don’t take it, OK? I’ll give you $200,” he says. While Schwarz can come across as brash and quick to make or reject a deal, he says he tries to be respectful in his dealings. “If you negotiate with a bit of a smile, you’re gonna get a lot further,” he says. One man enters the warehouse to get a photo with Schwarz – his wife is a fan of the show. Schwarz started his dual career as a TV personality almost by accident, attending a launch party for another show with a friend. He met the executive producer and things took off from there. “The next thing I knew, there was a film crew and they filmed a pilot, and the rest is history,” he says. While filming the show and maintaining his business is taxing, Schwarz has come to enjoy the pace. “If it ends, there will be a void in my life,” he says. “At the end of the day, it becomes part of you.”
Larry Wright/burnaby now
The art of the deal: Direct Liquidation owner Jeff Schwarz films his OLN reality TV show from his warehouse. The
Burnaby businessman sells everything from beds to go-karts.
One of the challenges Schwarz faces is keeping the show as realistic as possible, he says, something he’s learned isn’t common for many reality television shows. “I want to make sure everything is as real as it’s going to get,” he says. Another challenge is finding buyers or sellers who are willing to go on camera,
he adds. But every day is interesting and different, according to Schwarz. On the day the Burnaby NOW visited the set, he had purchased a wrestling mat and was trying to find a buyer for it. The most interesting purchase he has made was 36,000 sex toys, he says. “Try selling that with a straight face,
at the same time you’re selling mattresses,” Schwarz says, laughing. “Every day it’s a new event,” he says. “There’s new people walking in your door.” Viewers can catch Schwarz’s second season on OLN starting Nov. 8. For more on the Burnaby store and the show, go to directliquidation.ca.

Corrigan and MLA Harry Bloy are promoting this year’s Rotary Coats for Kids campaign.
More coats needed for children Brent Richter staff reporter
Parents may fret over their kids leaving the house on cold mornings not wearing a proper coat. But a growing number of Burnaby kids don’t even have the choice. The Rotary Club of Burnaby Metrotown has its annual Rotary Coats for Kids drive running at full steam, and the first 577 coats have been given to children of all ages in
need. “It’s not just young kids that we find coming out. We get mothers with babies coming in, so we need baby coats right through to youth at the end of high school,” said Gloria Tom Wing Staudt, the club’s public image director and spokesperson of the campaign. “How much is the need? It has been growing. Last year we gave out 1,700. Way back when, it was just 40.” The goal for this year is 2,000, Tom Wing Staudt said. The club collects coats and delivers them in a large panel van via schools and community organizations. New or gently used coats, prefer-
ably waterproof and with hoods, can be dropped off at a number of Burnaby locations, including Staples stores, any branch of the Burnaby Public Library, South Burnaby Neighbourhood House, and the UPS Store on Edmonds Street. With a donation of $12 in cash or cheque made out to SBNH: Rotary Coats for Kids, the club can buy a new coat. Cheques can be mailed to Box 307, 1410-6200 McKay Ave, Burnaby B.C., V5H 4M9. Tom Wing Staudt suggested that local business may want to run their own collection campaigns in house and then have the coats distributed by the Rotary club.
Fire captain completes his ride Burnaby fire captain Rudy Pospisil completed his 9,600-kilometre, 12week ride from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean a day early. Pospisil jumped into the Atlantic on Monday, a day before his intended completion date of Nov. 6, the date of the U.S. presidential election, to celebrate the ride where he climbed more than 55,0000 vertical metres. Pospisil, whose goal is to ride around the world, is approximately halfway to that goal, but he has to head back to Burnaby for work and to accumulate enough vacation time for his next bike ride. Pospisil talked to the Burnaby NOW several weeks ago from just outside of Austin, Texas, where he was relaxing. “I started in San Diego on Sept. 20 and when I finish … I’ll be in St. Augustine, Florida,” said Pospisil. “I think I’m riding in eight states in total.” Pospisil said he is doing it to raise awareness and funds for cancer research. “The three most common forms of cancer are lung, breast and prostate,” said Pospisil. “That’s what I’m raising money for.” This ride is one of many for the
avid cyclist, who has a plan to traverse 30 countries by bicycle. So far, he’s done nine and next year, he will make it 10 when he crosses Australia off the list. “On completion of this leg, I will be just under halfway around the world, following the Guinness rules of global circumnavigation,” said Pospisil. His colleagues at the Burnaby Fire Department are cheering him on and providing moral support. “I take all my vacation at one time,” he said. “The guys help out and I get a lot of support from them.” Some of the highlights for Pospisil have included riding into Phoenix, Arizona to meet the mayor, riding from San Francisco to Mexico, and being greeted by the mayor of Houston, Texas. Pospisil said he rode in temperatures of 50 degrees Celsius in Arizona and encountered big headwinds in Florida, partially created by Hurricane Sandy. As for his visit to Austin, it’s not lost on Pospisil that he’s entering the hometown of a cycling legend currently entwined in a drug scandal. “This is Lance Armstrong country,” said Pospisil. “If there’s one

Are you due for some screening tests? HEALTHWISE
Dr. Davidicus Wong
e sometimes take better care of our cars than our bodies. Of course, a new car comes with an owner’s manual, which details what you need checked and serviced at regular intervals. By doing these things, we can keep our engines running smoothly and extend the lives of our cars. Unfortunately, a human body doesn’t come with a maintenance manual. Ironically, the gender that is usually more interested in the mechanics of their motor vehicles tends to be less interested in physical self-maintenance. Many men seem to be under the delusion that their bodies are under a no-maintenance unlimited lifetime warranty. They may look after their outward appearance while taking health itself for granted. This is not unlike washing and waxing your car but forgetting to change the oil. Women tend to be much better at seeing their physicians for routine checkups, such as Pap smears. Yet most people don’t know all the medical tests and procedures they should do periodically to maintain good health. When should women start doing Pap smears? When and how often should men check their prostates? How do we detect colon cancer early? How often should you have your blood pressure checked? Part of the problem is our problem-based health-
care system. Visits to family doctors are initiated by patients, who present specific problems to be solved. Patients therefore rely on their family physicians to tell them what they should have checked, even if it is unrelated to their visit. Patients once relied on the complete physical history and examination to review their lifestyles, assess all physical systems and perform the recommended screening tests. However, the B.C. Medical Services Plan will not pay for routine complete physical examinations in the absence of significant medical problems, such as diabetes, heart failure or multisystem conditions. So how do you find out what you should be doing? You could book a complete physical and pay for it yourself (it would be cheaper than taking your car in for a tune-up) or you can rely on your conscientious family physician to tell you what you’re due to check out in addition to dealing with your presenting problems. Preventive health procedures are not common knowledge. You can look up the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care website at www.ctfphc.org, although it is not user-friendly for the general public. A screening test is considered useful if it can detect in a symptomless patient a condition, such as diabetes or cancer, and allow treatment at an early enough stage to prevent a more serious outcome. For example, Pap smears can detect early forms of cervical cancer and prompt curative treatment before it causes irreparable damage to the cervix or spreads elsewhere in the body. Preventive health care
refers to interventions, such as counselling, to encourage practices that lessen potential health risks. These include annual flu shots and periodic pneumonia shots to all individuals over 65 and those with chronic diseases, such as emphysema, asthma, diabetes or heart disease. All women who could become pregnant should take a 0.4 mg folic acid (folate) supplement to prevent neural tube defects (such as spina bifida) in babies. For men without liver disease, the recommended maximum number of alcoholic drinks per day is three; for women, the limit is two. All of us (with teeth) should floss and brush with a fluoride-containing toothpaste. I developed this habit early in life after my dentist (who is also my father) jumped out from behind the bathroom door and told me, “You didn’t brush long enough!” Everyone should wear a seatbelt while driving, and children should be in appropriate car seats or boosters. To prevent skin cancer, we should limit our exposure to sunlight with sunblock and protective hats and clothing. To avoid lung, throat and bladder cancer, premature atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), chronic bronchitis or emphysema and premature wrinkles, no one should smoke. In upcoming columns, I will review the screening tests and procedures I recommend to my patients. You’ll then have that user manual at last, and you’ll have no excuse for not maintaining your one and only body. Although you can’t trade it in, you may get a new lease on life.

Onions: Not always crying time again ON COOKING
robably the most frequent question I get asked is: How do I prevent crying when cutting onions? No one enjoys this eye burning sensation followed by what seems to be an emotional breakdown. The watery eyes are caused by a chemical gas that is released from the onion as it is damaged by cutting. This chemical gas then reacts with the natural tears in our eyes and turns into a mild form of sulfuric acid, which our eyes then water more to flush away the irritant. In my many years of cooking, I have heard numerous ways to help prevent this reaction, some more effective than others, and it is my pleasure to share these findings with you. I have heard that burning a candle near the cutting board will help because the flame will burn off these releasing gases. However, through my trial and errors, all I have found is the tender glow from the candle just makes you look more romantic while you are crying. I have also heard stories about holding a spoon between your teeth or a slice of bread hanging out of your mouth to eliminate any tears from shedding. The theory was presented to me that the metal of the spoon offers a chemical reaction with the gas to disperse it, while the bread would simply soak up the gases before reaching one’s eyes. We brought up these theories during a cooking
class one evening, and a stand, positioned to blow there was a man claimin the opposite direction ing to be a scientist in the of where you are standing crowd.

The Heights is jingling with Christmas excitement by Connie Ou The Heights Contributor
‘Twas the weeks leading to Christmas and all through the Heights, good cheer filled the air as the celebrations were already here. With the arrival of winter comes what some may dread – the biting cold and dismal weather. But you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find plenty of warmth, joy and fun things to do here in our community. Join the Heights Merchants Association from 3 to 5 p.m. on Dec. 1 at Heights Fountain Square, at Hastings Street and MacDonald Avenue, as we kick off our annual Light up the Heights event with our community tree lighting ceremony. Admission is free, but the donation of a new and unwrapped toy would be most appreciated. All toys collected will be donated to the Burnaby Christmas Bureau. This very special occasion will be accompanied by live holiday tunes, festive treats, warm drinks and entertaining activities for the family. Kids can enjoy a reading of Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas by the children’s librarian from the McGill branch of the Burnaby Public Library. Other activities include a gingerbread
decorating station and festive crafts. For those who are looking to do some Christmas shopping, be sure to check out our Fair in the Square open-air holiday market, where local merchants will be showcasing holiday delights that will make perfect gifts for under the tree. The festive cheer continues on Dec. 8 and 15 and will feature carollers strolling along Hastings Street from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., spreading joy to the ears of the community. Don’t forget to also take a photo with Santa – he’ll be visiting the Heights and handing out tasty treats during his stay! You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, we’re telling you why – all the fun and joy that you’ll have here will only make you more cheerful as the days go by. We’re always looking for helpers. If you’re interested in being a volunteer for our tree lighting ceremony, please contact us at 604-294-8899. For more information, please visit: www. burnabyheights.com/events/light-up-theheights. Connie Ou was a marketing and events assistant summer student with the Heights Merchants Association.

Pumpkins in the city by Janaya Fuller-Evans The Heights Reporter
Plenty of families showed up to the Heights Merchants Association’s pumpkin patch on Saturday, Oct. 27 despite the rain. Heights Fountain Square was decked out with straw bales and scarecrows, and pumpkins were stacked and tucked around two tents set up for the occasion. Kids in yellow slickers searched the site for the perfect potential jack-o-lantern. There were treats on hand, as well as hot chocolate, and the association handed out bags of goodies to the children. Pumpkins were traded for a donation to the food bank. Community Savings Credit Union partnered with the association on the event and took part in the fun, handing out treats as well.

New kid on the block: G&F Financial now open By Janaya Fuller-Evans The Heights Reporter
When Blockbuster closed in the Heights last fall, it was unclear what business might come in to take over the space. But at the end of September, G&F Financial Group celebrated its grand opening in the spot at 4191 Hastings St. The credit union held a large party for the community, closing off Carleton Avenue for the event. More than 2,000 people attended, according to Steven Comin, associate vicepresident of marketing for the credit union. There was music, free food, a fun zone hosted by the Vancouver Giants and more at the event, he said.
Politicians, community members and even Burnaby crooner Michael Bublé made appearances.
“But the biggest measure of success has been the number of relationships we’ve formed since that day,” Gill Sherwood, branch manager, said in an emailed statement. “Our big street party let us demonstrate our community spirit to our neighbours, and our neighbours are continuing to stop by with their banking questions and to ask for second opinions on financial matters that are important to them. As a member-owned financial institution, every business decision we make is meant to benefit our members, and these are the types of conversations we have always had at all of our branches.”
Sherwood helped the credit union win the Burnaby Business Excellence Award in the community spirit category last year with her involvement in the South Burnaby community, according to Comin, and looks forward to playing a new role in her own community, the Heights. “We chose to open a branch in the Heights in order to be closer to our members that live and work here and to offer our brand of personalized and practical financial services,” Peter Unadkat, regional manager of the Burnaby - New Westminster region for the credit union, said in the emailed statement. G&F Financial has more than 26,000 members at its 12 branches throughout the Lower Mainland.

How to handle a welded-on oil pan CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi
Dear Tom and Ray: OK, this is going to be a bit of a long story – sorry. As a college graduation present, my father got me a used 2004 Mercury Sable with 189,938 miles on it. When he gave it to me, he said it had only a small oil leak, but that leak turned out to be coming from the oil pan, and it’s more than a small leak. I have to fill it every three to four weeks, which is getting expensive. So I took it to a friend, who is also a mechanic, and he discovered that my oil pan is welded in place, not screwed on, like it should be. So we are at a loss as to how to remove it and replace it without things getting really expensive. My friend thinks we should drop the engine and try it that way. What do you think we should do? – Kylee

What to do with growing compost piles GREEN SCENE Anne Marrison
bout now, compost collections are growing faster than anything else in the garden. All the spent annuals, fallen leaves and vegetable and fruit scraps are ready to be recycled into plant food for future seasons. How you choose to compost them can involve a rich assortment of choices – and it’s quite possible to have several
methods going at once. In city gardens it’s important to have critter-proof compost bins. Rats and skunks and other urban wildlife look on fresh compost as a warm condo plus free lunch, and hungry raccoons damage compost arrangements. Plastic bins where you add compostible stuff at the top and remove finished compost from a door at the base are about as critter-proof as possible. They often have a perforated floor set on earth so that worms and other soil dwellers can help the composting process. These bins are sometimes available at low cost
in municipal programs. The wooden box type of bin generally has a lid and can be lined with wire mesh to stop small animals getting in. Often the front and one side can be removed, making it easier to turn the compost. Three wooden boxes in a row means you can put compost in one while you are using finished compost from another and going through the turning stage to expose the third bin’s contents to oxygen. Any vegetable garden can have a temporary chicken-wire surround for fallen leaves which decompose over the winter. It’s better if material inside is
not too heavy because the four or five poles which support the wire must be plunged deeply into the soil. The least bit of a lean and they can fall over. Kitchen scraps can be dug into the vegetable garden. One of the best methods is dumping one compost bucket at a time in one small part of a trench and covering that bit with soil immediately. Other composting methods include: rotating bins, tumbling bins, spreading vegetables and weeds on paths within a vegetable patch, and the heap method (best for rural dwellers). Various people tweak

them into fragments easily. Uncrushed eggshells attract rats that like to eat the bit of egg inside. Other things that get you into trouble with compost include: pet poop, cooked food, meat, bones, badly diseased leaves, roots of invasive plants and anything that’s been herbicided. Corn cobs, nutshells, and pine cones, waxy leaves and branches are very reluctant to break down – though branches break down faster if chopped into small pieces.

the composting rules a little depending whether they garden in urban small space or out-of town large space. But the basic method is always the same: alternating layers of green waste with brown, dried garden debris. Green waste includes veggie and fruit scraps, non-seeded weeds, coffee grounds/tea bags and grass clipping. Brown waste includes leaves, dried stems and straw. Try to get straw that has few or no seeds. Eggshells contain calcium and can go in compost if they’ve been dried and crushed. A potato masher turns

Ex-Knight sets new Canadian mark Record yards the same as all-time Kansas mark Tom Berridge sports editor
Former St. Thomas More player of the year Jon Cornish became the Canadian all-time singleseason rushing leader in the Canadian Football League. The sixth-year Calgary Stampeders’ running back rushed for a total of 69 yards, including a recordbreaking 22-yard romp up the middle, in a 30-27 victory over the Edmonton Eskimos on Friday. “I knew I was going to get it on the very first run,” said Cornish on a long-distance call Sunday. “It’s like when you get into the game, you’re in a zone, and it’s just a matter of time. “I felt pretty good. ... Edmonton was stacking the box and trashing me (saying they would not let him get the record). I was just waiting for that moment.” Cornish’s record-setting first-down run came on the final play of the third quarter, breaking the 56year-old mark set by the China Clipper Edmonton fullback Normie Kwong. Cornish finished the regular season with 1,457 total yards on the ground and 11 touchdowns. He averaged 5.6 yards per carry for the 12-6 West Division runner-up Stamps. In 1956, Kwong averaged 6.2 yards a carry and scored five TDs in a 1,437-yard season with the Eskimos. Kwong now holds the second and third best sin-

gle-season rushing totals. The former Eskie great also rushed for 1,250 yards in 1955. Former Winnipeg Blue Bomber star Canadian Gerry James holds claim to
the fourth- and fifth-best totals, set in 1955 and ’57, respectively. Former B.C. Lions running back Orville Lee sits in seventh place with 1,075 yards set in 1988.
Current Lions’ running back Andrew Harris moved past Lee into sixth spot on Saturday with 1,112 in total rushing yardage following B.C.’s 17-6 victory over Saskatchewan
at B.C. Place on Saturday. Coincidentally, Cornish’s CFL rushing total of 1,457 yards matches the exact same total Record Page 31
Grid Knights win Eastern conference title Tom Berridge sports editor
The St. Thomas More Knights scored three touchdowns in the second quarter and then hung on for a 40-27 victory over West Vancouver in a wild B.C. AAA high school football matchup. The win gave the Knights the Eastern conference title and a bye into the first week of playoffs. It also gave STM time to heal a few wounds, not the least of which was three consecutive successful short kickoff recoveries by West Van that all but one eventu-
ally led to touchdowns in a crazy third quarter at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex-West. “It was definitely a momentum killer. It wasn’t a good second half for us,” remarked STM head coach Bernie Kully. Fortunately for the Knights, they had done enough in the first half, scoring five times, including four in a one-sided second quarter of play. Jalen Jana, who racked up more than 160 yards on the ground and 200 all-purpose yards, opened the scoring on a three-yard run to finish off a 13-play drive on the
team’s second possession. West Van quickly answered on a 55-yard run up the middle from James Oswald. But the second quarter was all STM. Giovanni Trasolini, who had a strong outing with six catches for 111 yards and two scores, opened the second quarter with a brilliant 43-yard catch and run. Malcolm Lee recovered a Johnny Franklin fumble on the ensuing West Van possession and Jana quickly turned it into a score, racing 41 yards into the West Van end zone on the very next play.
Lee caught a 35-yard strike from quarterback Chase Malcolm on STM’s third possession of the quarter. Trasolini caught his second TD of the quarter on a 10-yard pass from Malcolm with just seconds left in the half. “Our defence held us really well,” said STM lineman Dante Vigini, who made seven tackles, a fumble recovery and two quarterback sacks on defence. “We did what we could. … What happens, happens. But the STM Page 30

NorthwestGiantsJansen Harkins scored four goals, including a first-period hat trick, in a five-point playerof-the-game performance in the gold-medal final to lead B.C. to a decisive 93 victory over Alberta in the championship game in Calgary on Sunday. Taz Burman of Vancouver turned aside 33 shots to backstop the win for the West Coasters. Chaz Reddekopp of Kelowna and Burnaby Winter Club product Matthew Barzal were named to the Challenge Cup all-star team. B.C. opened the competition with a 4-3 win over Alberta in a shootout. Harkins tallied the only goal in the penaltyshot portion of the game after B.C. rallied in the final period to send the game to a shootout. Barzal scored B.C.’s second and third goal of the period in the win. On Day 2 of Challenge Cup play, B.C. defeated Saskatchewan 4-1 with Burnaby Minor midget A1 centre Marcus Vela tallying the game-winner in a three-goal B.C. third period. “When I scored, the feeling and emotion and the atmosphere with my teammates, it was really cool,” said Vela, who played on a line with Burnaby Winter Club product Justin Szeto and Surrey’s Jake Fletcher. B.C. also defeated Manitoba 5-2 on Harkins’ middle-period marker on Saturday to advance to the final as the No. 1 seed. “We had this feeling before the game that it was going to be a really good game for us,” Vela said of the gold-medal final. “We did it. We brought home the gold. It was a very good feeling, a really good experience.” New Westminster Dman Ty Schultz, of the B.C. major midget league Vancouver Canadians, also played for B.C.

With the victory, SFU held on to its top seeding in the West region and became the first international school to compete for a NCAA national title. As the No. 1-ranked team, SFU will get a bye into the first round at regional qualifying. The Clan will play the winner of fourth-ranked Notre Dame de Namur and No. 5 Cal State Stanislaus in the second round. Justin Wallace scored what proved to be the game-winning goal just 10 minutes into the game. Senior defender Michael Winter made it 2-0 in the 20th minute, pouncing on a rebound and beating the Western Washington keeper. J.D. Blakley earned his fourth shutout of the year with the win. Blakley had to make two saves to post the victory. Senior John Hodnett iced the win in the 86th minute on another SFU goal off a rebound. “It’s great to finish the season with a 3-0 victory over a quality Western Washington University squad,” said SFU head coach Alan Koch in a Clan press release. “Thankfully, we got out of the game with limited injuries and battled through some pretty adverse weather conditions. Now we look forward to seeing how the NCAA national tournament bracket comes out.” Last year, the SFU men finished
SFU club to host first hockey showcase all about,” said SFU head coach Mark Coletta in a club press release. “Our players and staff are all very excited to see how we stack up.” The showcase will run in conjunction with the 50th annual Burnaby Minor AAA bantam hockey Christmas tournament, which runs from Dec. 27 to 31. To purchase tickets in advance or to find out the latest information on the first-ever college hockey showcase, go to www. sfuhockey.com. SFU has been in the final of the last five B.C. Intercollegiate Provincial Championships, winning three of them. – Tom Berridge

the regular season with an unbeaten 18-0-1 season. This season, the Clan boasted an overall 16-1-1 mark and were 12-1-1 in conference play. The Clan also boasted 13 players earning all-conference recognition, including Koch, who garnered his third Great Northwest coach of the year honour in the year-end coaches poll.
Winter was named the Great Northwest player of the year, while Ryan Dhillon was selected conference freshman of the year. Carlo Basso, Helge Neumann, Matt Besuschko and Winter were named to the all-conference first team for a second time. Six other SFU players also earned all-conference second team or honourable mention recognition.
end is a reflection of your effort, right?” STM lineman Nico Repole was also dominant with six tackles and three sacks. With a bye week into the playoffs, STM has time to work on putting a complete game together before having to face the winner of Notre Dame and Kelowna in the second round of AAA playoffs. “We have to keep healthy and build on our skills for the playoffs,” said Vigini, who was named the Eastern Conference MVP defensive player. STM also put three others on the all-defensive team and another four on offence. Lineman Simon Diersch, linebacker Elliott Nelson and Jana at defensive back were also named to the east squad. Malcolm was selected quarterback of the all-east team, while Nico Repole was chosen on the offensive line and teammates Lee and Trasolini as receivers.

Byrne Creek boy places in top 10 Byrne Creek junior Jemal Reta finished in the top 10 at the B.C. high school boys’ cross-country championships in Prince George on Saturday. The 14-year-old Grade 10 student placed eighth overall just one one minute behind individual champion Tim Delcourt of Kwantlen Park in a time of 23:36 over a muddy and snow-laden 6.3-kilometre course at D.P. Todd Secondary school. “I’m very happy with (my finish). It was freezing,” said Reta, an Ethiopian-born runner who emigrated from the Sudan to Canada in 2005. “I think (the others) were used to running in the snow. They kept up a very fast pace.” With snow as deep as 10 centimetres in some spots and the temperature at -3 Celsius, Reta was the youngest finisher among the top-22 runners. “It was a very hard course. At one point there was a downhill covered with mud and snow and it was very slippery,” he said. Ben Weir of Glenlyon-
Norfolk and Liam Kennell of Oak Bay placed second and third, respectively, just seconds behind Delcourt. Kevin Charpentier of Moscrop was the next closest Burnaby runner, finishing in 101st place in a time of 26:31. The Burnaby Central and Burnaby Mountain boys’ teams placed 28th and 29th overall in the aggregate standings. Defending champion Oak Bay won the team title. In the 4.3-km girls’ race, zone champion Sophia Stevenson placed 72nd overall in a time of 20:15. Nicole Hutchinson of Sentinel took the individual title in a winning time of 17:44. Miryam Bassett of North Delta and Nanaimo Christian’s Marita DeSchiffart were just seconds back. Central finished 22nd overall in the team aggregate. Semiahmoo won this year’s team event, edging out defending champion and runner-up West Point Grey Academy. Burnaby Mountain finished in 28th place. – Tom Berridge

number he put up in his senior year at the University of Kansas, when he established a new all-time singleseason school record in 2006. In his final NCAA Division I varsity season, Cornish finished first in the Big 12 conference in rushing yards and ninth overall in the nation. Cornish called the coincidence “pretty creepy” but shrugged it off, saying that might be the most remarkable accomplishment of his football career. “Coach (John) Hufnagel gave me that opportunity and I’ve always said, ‘when you get that opportunity you have to shine,’ and I didn’t want to let go of that chance,” Cornish added.

Donald Wilson Kennedy passed away into the loving arms of his Saviour on Saturday, October 27, 2012. He was a wonderful husband, father, opi, uncle and brother-inlaw, and a beloved friend to many. Don was born in New Westminster on July 13, 1942, and lived his whole life in the Royal City. He graduated from Lester Pearson High School in 1960 and went on to complete a Commerce Degree at the University of British Columbia, where he was a proud member and president of the Delta Upsilon Fraternity. Don married “Nita”, the love of his life, on April 8, 1971. Together they raised three daughters. Don’s only regret in life was not having more children. He loved his girls so much. Don began his professional career as a real estate agent with Block Brothers and later Kennedy Cooper. In 1976, he took over the family business, Kennedy Travel Service Ltd, which was established by his father as the ﬁrst travel agency in Western Canada. He took every advantage of the travel opportunities presented to him and explored much of the world with Nita at his side. He made many connections as a member and past president of the Skal Club of Vancouver. He was a caring and compassionate boss, respected by all who worked for and with him. Don led by example and dedicated much of his life to serving others, acting on the Queen’s Park Hospital Foundation Board and the BC Parole Board. He was an enthusiastic member and past president of the New Westminster Rotary Club, and he made many lifelong friends through the YM/YWCA of New Westminster. When he wasn’t playing handball with his buddies or improvising a tune on the piano, he could be found (or rather, not found) at one of his secret blackberry patches around Birch Bay. The cabin at Birch Bay will always remain a very special place for Don’s family because of how much he loved being there. He is survived by his wife, Anita, daughters Christine, Tobi May (Kyle), and Holly, grandson Heath and a future grandchild due in April; cousins Merrick Hunter, Graham Hunter, Lorian Kennedy and Allison Akgungor; brother Bruce. He also leaves behind an incredible extended family of 16 sistersand brothers-in-law and many nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grandnephews, all of whom he loved dearly. The family wishes to thank the staff at the Royal Columbian Hospital Dialysis Clinic and the Alzheimer’s Society for their support and care. A celebration of life will be held on November 16, 2012 at the Centennial Lodge in Queen’s Park, New Westminster, from 1 to 4 p.m. In lieu of ﬂowers, donations can be made to the Rotary Foundation. Online condolences may be left at www.kearneyfs.com.
