George Derby rally set Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
The Hospital Employees’ Union is planning a workers’ rally and hosting a meeting for families concerned about loved ones at Burnaby’s George Derby Centre, which has recently decided to lay off more than 90 unionized employees and contract out some services. “We’ve been getting a lot of calls from family members. Our members at George Derby have been asked a lot of questions by family members,” said union spokesperson Margi Blamey. The meeting for families is scheduled on Wednesday, Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. at the union’s South Burnaby office, at 5000 North Fraser Way. George Derby provides care for roughly 300 veterans, most of whom suffer from dementia. The centre recently decided to lay off about 90 people at the end of April and contract out housekeeping, food and nutrition, laundry, clerical and activity staff. The move is expected to save money in order to provide more care hours for the aging residents. The non-profit centre is mainly funded through the Fraser Health Authority, but Veterans Affairs Canada funds some programs. The union has raised concerns that the loss of familiar, experienced and trusted staff members could be traumatic for the seniors. Dale Gebhard’s 88-year-old father moved into the centre in late August, and he also has concerns about how the staffing change will impact the care his father is receiving. Derby Page 3

Getting ready: Stephen D’Souza with the Burnaby Christmas Bureau says the family sponsorship program has become an important holiday tradition for many and a good way to connect with others in the community.
From one family to another Christina Myers staff reporter
The technical definition of family includes those people to whom one is related by blood. But for a group in Burnaby who share the holidays with one another, family is also the friends you choose to be with – and who you reach out to help in times of trouble. Jennifer Lowther is part of a group that has, over the years, created their own unique “family” gathering for the holidays and recently decided to get involved with the bureau to extend their blessings. “There’s a group of us that is a mixture

we know that we would not be as fortunate as we are if it weren’t for the people who helped us get here and we also know what it is like to have unforeseen circumstances and temporary situations put obstacles in your path. We wanted other families to be able to celebrate Christmas by having a family dinner and gifts for the kids without having the financial stress.” They were too late that first year and missed the deadline to serve as a sponsor group but rather than waiting a year to try again, they decided to find out what kinds of items were most needed and donate them directly to the bureau’s toy Bureau Page 4

of family and friends,” she said. “None of us were born in British Columbia, so over the years, we ended up celebrating holidays together … although we aren’t all related, we are a family.” Two years ago, after hearing about the Burnaby Christmas Bureau, they decided to get involved through family sponsorship, in which a sponsoring group gets matched up with and provides food and gifts for a family that is registered with the bureau. “We’ve been fortunate to have wonderful Christmases and haven’t needed to worry about the extra costs that come with making a large turkey dinner and all the celebrations,” she said. “At the same time,

BCIT prez sleeps on street for fundraiser Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
B.C. Institute of Technology president Don Wright had a glimpse of what it’s like to be homeless after spending Thursday night sleeping in a back alley in Vancouver. Wright, along with 19 other CEOS, sports figures and local celebrities spent Thursday huddled in sleeping bags as part of The Sleep Out, a fundraiser for Covenant House, a Vancouver shelter for homeless youth. “It was an incredible experience. It’s just one of those things I was really happy I agreed to do,” Wright said. The evening started with the participants meeting youth receiving help from Covenant House. “These were incredible stories, kids who were living out on the street and virtually had no hope,” Wright said. “Someone connected them with Covenant House, and they were able to clean up their act.” Participants included Whitecaps president Bob Lenarduzzi and a senior executive from TD Waterhouse – people likely accustomed to more affluent lifestyles. “It all made it a little more real to us just how desperate a life people who don’t have a home live. You know that theoretically, but to get even glimpse of what it mean to be sleeping out on the street every night, it was one of those wild experiences.”

Bundled up: Don Wright, president of BCIT, slept on the streets last Thursday for a fundraiser for Covenant
House, a youth homeless shelter in Vancouver.
At press time, the fundraiser had garnered more than $264,510, which will go towards the organization’s crisis shelter for youth aged 16 to 24. Wright, who works out of BCIT’s Burnaby campus, was left with a strengthened resolve to address home-
lessness. “We need to do everything possible to get these people the tools to live a good life and a secure place to live,” he said. firstname.lastname@example.org

room. Last year, they made sure to register early and were matched with a family. Lowther says the experience was enjoyable on every level. “The family we sponsored had had a rough year – they were very appreciative of the support,” she says. “We had a lot of fun shopping and packaging up the gifts and food and knowing that we were able to help someone out and see the direct benefit was very rewarding. The Christmas spirit is about sharing and being kind to others.” The group of 10 has already registered to be matched with another family this year. Like last year, the group will contact the family, find out what they need and what kinds of gifts the children would like, and then prepare the hamper for delivery prior to Christmas. The program is a cornerstone for the Burnaby Christmas Bureau, says executive director Stephen D’Souza, and something they’re hoping to see grow this year. “We’re really trying to put an emphasis on sponsorship this year. It’s a real opportunity to connect with people in the community and to work directly with helping out,” he said. “Sponsors tell us that it really adds to that spirit of Christmas – it can be a very eye-opening experience,” he added. D’Souza notes that many people have “preconceived notions of what poverty looks like” and it can be a challenge to set those aside. “Sometimes what you see isn’t what you think it looks like when a family is in need of help.” For example, many families turn to the bureau after an unexpected job
loss, accident or illness has severely impacted their finances but they may previously have been financially comfortable. “From an outsider looking in and judging, they may not look like they need help,” said D’Souza. Families who register with the bureau are required to provide financial information, including income tax details and pay stubs. “There’s that idea that there are people who abuse (programs like this), but these are families in our community who are doing the best they can for their children and maybe facing a challenging time in their lives,” he said. Sharing some Christmas spirit can have a profound impact on the families but also on the sponsors and others who donate to the bureau, he said. That’s a sentiment that Lowther agrees with heartily. “Being able to see the direct benefit of a donation is something special,” she told the NOW. As well, she says there’s something uniquely special about having the chance to keep a holiday tradition alive and well for others. “Christmas is a special time of year. … Although gift giving can get a little crazy, there is something to be said about keeping the tradition and the meaning behind that gift giving. “It’s not about the value that is spent but the gesture of providing the gift to show you care and how much someone means to you. To be able to keep this meaning and tradition alive for our youth is really important,” she said.

City sticks to contracting out compost processing Janaya Fuller-Evans
The City of Burnaby will not be processing its own green waste after finding it would be too costly for the city, according to Burnaby’s acting director of engineering, Barry Davis. “The biggest issue are economies of scale and location,” he said. Finding space in Burnaby for a composting facility is difficult because of the zoning requirements for the industrial land available, he explained. “Within the city, the only available city land has a zoning requirement to put it in a building, whereas other places in the Lower Mainland can compost outdoors,” Davis said. “So you put that all together, it makes it fairly expensive from a capital cost perspective for the city to get into it.” The amount of green waste the city produces is also a factor, as a commercial composting company would be able to offer better rates as they process higher volumes, he explained. “The second thing is economies of scale – the more you can put through, the lower your per tonne processing cost would be,” Davis said, adding, “the current contract is still the best way to go.” The amount of green waste collected by the city has increased since the program was introduced in 1997, he said, and the addition of food scrap collection in the past two years has added to it. In 2010, the city included food scrap pick-up for single-family households and began picking up food scraps from some multi-
family and civic buildings last year as well. The city currently collects approximately 20,000 tonnes of organic waste per year, according to an engineering staff report, and that is expected to increase to 32,000 tonnes per year in the next 20 years. It would cost the city more than $4.20 million per year to set up its own composting facility, according to the report. The City of Burnaby previously had a green waste-processing contract with Fraser Richmond Soil and Fibre Ltd. but chose not to renew the contract in August. In April, the city agreed to pay $1.57 million more to the company because Burnaby was exceeding the contracted limits on compostable materials, bringing the cost of the city’s contract to $5.74 million for the five-year period between September 2007 and August 2012. In October, the city signed a contract with Enviro-Smart Organics Ltd. instead. The cost of the twoyear contract is $2.24 million, according to a report from the city’s director of finance, Denise Jorgenson. The new contract costs the city $1.12 million per year, rather than the approximately $1.15 million per year with the previous contract. Last spring, the city contracted AECOM, a company that provides technical and management support services in the environmental market, to assess the feasibility of running its own processing facility. City staff concluded it was not only too costly to do so, it just wasn’t a good fit for the city, according to Coun. Dan Johnston, chair
of the city’s finance and civic development committee. “We want a location that’s not going to impede the neighbours,” he said. The contract with EnviroSmart Organics is a better solution, he added. “We were able to save some significant money for the taxpayer,” he said. “Competition drives the price down a bit.” Compost Page 9

Or, here’s an idea: Take the dollar amount of lost productivity on Family Day and put that towards helping poor kids in B.C. We suspect that might make quite a difference.

George Derby Centre is a community based complex care facility for 300 residents, most of whom are veterans of the Armed Forces. Since 1988, we have been recognized as a centre of excellence for our innovative programs and the provision of the highest quality care and services for our residents. Over the past couple of weeks, there has been much discussion about planned changes which will increase the amount of direct care provided to our residents at the centre. Unfortunately, certain groups and individuals are using the centre to advance their own political agenda without regard

to facts. Much of the information they are spreading is inaccurate and has unduly caused a great deal of stress for our residents and their families. George Derby Centre’s first and foremost responsibility is to respond to and meet our residents’ changing needs so that they can maintain their optimal level of personal health and well-being, despite the presence of serious chronic illness, until the end of their life. We achieve our mission by continually refining and changing our leisure, medical, nursing, rehabilitative, spiritual and therapeutic programs and other services so that they support our residents’ changing abilities and needs. Over the past several years, the centre has made many changes in an effort to increase our nursing

care staffing levels to meet our residents’ changing care needs. We have reduced or eliminated management positions, contracted out services such as grounds keeping, maintenance, rehabilitation and spiritual care services and leisure programs and reduced our non-labour costs as much as possible. Unfortunately, these changes have not resulted in the level of savings that we require to respond to our residents’ changing needs. Continuing to contract out selected services will allow us to maintain and even improve the quality of care provided to our residents. For example, we will be able to save money in the support services areas so that we can add resident care staff. Therefore, the resident care aides will have more time to assist residents with their personal activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, grooming and toileting and supporting them during each meal. We have very stringent standards in the contracting out process, which will result in the quality of support services being the same as it is now or better. This is because the standards and requirements in long-term care are very different from acute care, especially since our facility is the residents’ home. All of the money that we save will be used to increase the hours of care for each resident. We expect to be able to provide to each resident about 27 additional minutes of personal care per day. The centre operates in compliance with the Community Care and Assisted Living Act, which dictates a high quality of clean-
ing, infection control and maintenance standards. The centre undergoes routine licensing inspections, and any identified deficiencies must be corrected. We meet and even exceed national quality and risk management standards. Those standards will be maintained by the contractor. Unlike acute care, George Derby Centre has a 28-day seasonal meal plan and prepares the food onsite. The contractor will be required to meet or exceed our current standards regarding taste and nutrition. In fact, more flexibility can be built into their services, which will directly benefit our residents, such as a restaurant style meal service, so that our residents have more time to get to the dining room. We also hope to extend coverage at reception to enhance security and to be available for family members who cannot visit during the day. Change is always difficult, and the decision to contract out was not taken lightly. We will do all we can to make the transition as easy as possible for our residents, families and staff. It’s time to stop the fearmongering and rhetoric and look to the facts. Our first priority has to be the safety and well-being of all of our residents and continuing to contract out will allow us to maintain and even improve the care we provide to them. George Derby Centre will not jeopardize its standards. We will maintain the excellence that has been established over the past 25 years and continue to provide the highest quality care and services to our veteran residents.

movement is a shadow of its former self. Barrett had to deal with powerful private sector union leaders who threatened to bring down his government after he legislated more than 50,000 striking workers back on the job. In fact, it can be argued much of that labour movement deserted the NDP in the 1975 election, which was akin to cutting off their nose to spite their face, as the Social Credit government was far less friendly to its interests. But labour no longer has that kind of political might. Much of its power now resides among public sector unions, which are more narrowly focused on their own plight.
This removes a potential headache for Dix should he become premier. He won’t face the same kind of pressure from the labour movement that kept Barrett up late at nights. Another thing that jumps out of The Art of the Impossible is how the forest industry has also almost disappeared from the political arena. Neither Dix nor Clark shows any signs of emulating Barrett’s approach to governing. Dix keeps stressing he has a “modest” agenda for government, and has repeatedly said he doesn’t intend to bring in a lot of legislation should he gain power. As for Clark, she seems genuinely disinterested (if
not contemptuous) of the legislature and the legislated process itself. But given Barrett’s penchant for polarizing the electorate, it’s interesting that it’s not the current NDP leader who seeks to do that. Dix is trying to turn down the temperature and play less partisan politics. But Clark is the one trying to polarize everything, to make the choice next May a stark one between left and right with nothing in the middle. It is Clark who is behaving more like Barrett.

Walk turns ugly as Burnaby owl sets sights on city Chihuahuas Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Burnaby residents may want to keep their small dogs on short leashes while owls are busy hunting and fattening up for the coming winter. Adam Schlombs contacted the NOW to report a recent owl attack on his girlfriend near Cameron Street in Burnaby. “Every evening we take our three little Chihuahuas for a walk around the paved walkway,” he wrote. “However, last night my girlfriend was walking the pathway when an owl swooped out of the trees and nearly nabbed one of the dogs.” According to Schlombs, his girlfriend moved to a more well-lit area, but the owl dove again, narrowly missing her and the dogs.
Crystal Simmons, who runs the hotline at the Burnaby-based Wildlife Rescue Association of B.C., said it’s common this time of year and in spring. “We do get calls where they will attack people,” she said. According to Simmons, an owl can mistake a jogger’s ponytail for a squirrel’s tail. Small pets may also appeal to owls, who are in hunting mode, preparing for winter at a time when food is scarce. “I think people should be careful. It’s not just owls. Coyotes – exact same thing – coyotes are getting ready for winter,” she said. Small dogs, cats or rabbits could become prey for owls, eagles or coyotes. “Keep animals close, always keep them on a leash,” Simmons said. When asked if there
City will charge for older tax information
The City of Burnaby will begin charging fees for access to historical tax information in 2013. Historical tax information that takes less than 15 minutes to compile will be subject to a $10 fee and anything over 15 minutes will cost $35 per hour. The changes were proposed in a report by the city’s director of finance, Denise Jorgenson, and were approved by council at the Nov. 5 council meeting. Tax apportionments – done in the case of subdivision or stratification of a parcel of land – will also be charged a fee of $35. Fees for tax certificates, mortgage information requests and dishonoured payments will all increase by $5. By Janaya Fuller-Evans, staff reporter
are any areas in Burnaby where owls congregate, Simmons said they are everywhere, even in downtown Vancouver. A lot of people wouldn’t normally see owls, but with winter coming and the leaves falling off branches, they are easier to spot, she added. Simmons said she has received calls, where upset people reported that owls made off with small pets.
The Wildlife Rescue Association is warning people to keep pets close while owls are on the hunt, preparing for winter. This barred owl is an example of a typical owl species found in Burnaby. Paul Steeves/ burnaby now

Compost: Shipped out continued from page 5
Manny Mahi, vice-president of operations for EnviroSmart Organics Ltd. and Westcoast Instant Lawns Ltd., said the company is on the smaller side and is able to keep costs down because of that. The company has 22 employees, including drivers and employees with the turf and composting sides of the business, he said. The company accepts green waste from Delta, as well, he added. “We accept the curbside green waste, which nowadays is mixed with food waste, as well,” he said. “It is brought to our facility out in Delta … and processed here in Delta, and goes through a cycle where it gets turned into compost.” The company sells soil and compost products, and also uses the compost in the production of its turf, Mahi said. “We turn it into top soil which meets B.C. landscape specifications for planting mix, turf mix, and composted mulch,” he said. “We take about 50 per cent of the compost we produce and put it back onto the property and sell a premium grade of sod.” It makes the business a one-stop shop, he said, where landscapers and other customers can drop off yard waste and compost and can also buy soil and turf, he explained. “We sell it to just about everyone, from landscapers to homeowners, to a lot of the commercials sites as well, and of course, to municipalities,” Mahi added.
“(They are) hunting, it’s a natural behaviour. They don’t know the difference between a pet and a wild animal,” she said. “It’s not just particularly this time of year. … It could happen any time of the year.” Simmons also got a call from a woman who had a dog on an extension leash, and an eagle swooped down and took it. email@example.com

FROM THE BATTLE FIELD TO THE STREETS OF BURNABY, KRAV MAGA IS GROWING IN POPULARITY To those who’ve tried it, Krav Maga is the ultimate in modern self-defence: practical, efficient and aimed at readying an individual for ‘real-world’ applications. The method is still relatively unknown in Canada, but that’s likely to change.
Its profile has been boosted by simple word-of-mouth as those already practising it share their experiences with friends and family. But a little Hollywood glamour doesn’t hurt either: A-list celebrities have been
reported to have used the method to train for physically intensive stunt filming. Reporter Christina Myers caught up with a pair of local instructors who are bringing their passion for Krav Maga right here to Myers Burnaby.
To walk in peace, armed with knowledge
t only took a few minutes for Borhan Jiang to realize he’d found something he would be passionate about for the rest of his life. While on a trip to Israel in his early 20s, Jiang – already an accomplished student of martial arts and an army reservist – was encouraged to try out a class in Krav Maga. Krav Maga (a Hebrew word that translates into “contact combat”) is a selfdefence technique developed in the 1940s, based on a variety of martial arts and hand-to-hand fighting methods. “I was in the class and I got paired up with a young woman,” he recalls. Looking at her, he figured he had the advantage – she was slight and slim; he was bigger and stronger. “But her first punch – wow, that was it, she had me,” he says with a chuckle. “Your gender, your size, it doesn’t matter.” He was hooked. Now, after nearly a decade of training and traveling around the world for certifications, he and fellow local Krav Maga instructor and former Israeli soldier, Jonathan Fader, are helping others learn how to protect themselves the same way.
Krav Maga, for all its practical purposes, has a history that sounds like something out of a Hollywood drama. In the years leading up to the Second World War, a young man named Imi Lichtenfeld – a Jew born in Hungary and growing up in Bratislava, Slovakia – found himself taking to the streets alongside fellow athletes, mostly boxers and wrestlers, to defend their neighbourhoods from violence. Anti-semitism and fascism were on the rise, and riots and attacks on the Jewish neighbourhoods was not uncommon. Lichtenfeld soon discovered that competitive wrestling or boxing was a very different beast than the fight-for-yourlife battles taking place on the streets of Bratislava. On the wrestling mat or in the boxing ring, he fought for points – to win the match or the round. But up against a thug who was determined to injure him, or worse, Lichtenfeld needed to be able to quickly subdue his opponent – and then get out, alive. Figuring out how to do just that was the seed that would become Krav Maga. Later, Litchenfeld would escape to Palestine on the last refugee ship leaving Europe in 1940; from there, he formalized the fighting technique, and later, when the state of Israel was formed, he became an instructor with the Israeli Defense Forces. To this day, Israeli soldiers – male and female – are trained in Krav Maga. Other military organizations around the world have taken notice; so have individuals interested in self-defence, from

On the mat: Above, Borhan Jiang and Jon Fader train together in the studio in
North Burnaby where they run Urban Tactics. At right, Krav Maga grand master Imi Lichtenfeld (left), who developed the method after years spent fighting Nazi thugs in his neighbourhood in pre-Second World War Europe, seen here with Yaron Lichtenstein. famous Hollywood actors training to do their own stunts, to people like Jiang and Fader. The Krav Maga instructors and business partners run Urban Tactics, currently running two full classes each week, off Hastings Street near Boundary. Both are hoping to see the business grow in the coming years, particularly for women who are still under-represented in most Krav Maga training facilities. Chances are good they’ll be able to do just that – Krav Maga is fast becoming a household term, helped along by word of mouth, a bit of Hollywood glamour in the form of devotees like J. Lo and Angelina Jolie, and the impressive testimonials from those who’ve already learned more about this “contact combat.”
Leon Underwood, a North Burnaby resident, is symbolic of the demographic most popularly drawn to Krav Maga up till now. He’s been in the military for 10 years,
including a deployment to Afghanistan and emergency rescue operations here at home. He notes that many who start training in Krav Maga are those who work in risky situations, but he says the ability to protect yourself quickly in any environment – plus the fitness benefits – are a boon to anyone. “You don’t have to go to a place like Afghanistan to find yourself being threatened and Krav Maga is a great answer to those concerns,” he told the NOW. “It focuses on real world situations where the environment is uncontrolled and threats could come from anywhere at anytime.” Where martial arts like karate or judo may operate on a system of points in a competitive setting, Krav Maga teaches how to stay safe and get away fast – with your life. “If you’re being mugged and all you need to do is throw a kick to the groin and run away to stay safe, then that’s what you do.” Tactics Page 16

A taste of the opera in Burnaby this weekend LIVELY CITY
he Burnaby Lyric Opera wants to introduce you to Guiseppe Verdi (or, Joe Green, if you’re a Victor Borge fan). Continuing the Sunday afternoon concert series at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, the organization will present highlights from Verdi’s opera Rigoletto at 3 p.m. this Sunday, Nov. 25. The show will feature five young opera singers from around Metro Vancouver; Gina McLellan Morel, Andrew Greenwood, Matthew Chittick, Lisa-Dawn Kilthau and Jordan Collalto, with musical direction/conducting by Richard Coombes. As this production is the organization’s Christmas fundraiser this year, there will also be a bake sale and raffle, as well as a Christmas carol sing-a-long with the audience. The Shadbolt is located at 6450 Deer Lake Ave. Tickets are $15, available by phone: 604-205-3000.
Author reading at public library
Some books are great for transporting you to farflung places you’d like to
visit … though maybe only in your imagination. One of these is Ginty’s Ghost, an account by B.C. author Chris Czajkowski of her time spent living at Ginty Creek, a remote community accessible only by float plane or a several day’s hike through the wilderness of central British Columbia. Ginty Creek was named for Ginty Paul, the eccentric recluse who had previously owned the property. Some locals remember Ginty affectionately, while others feared her volatile temper. Intrigued by the stories, Czajkowski tracked down a pile of Ginty’s letters and documents and, combined with anecdotes and interviews with other locals, created an account of the place. Hear Czajkowski read from her new book at the McGill branch of the public library from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Nov. 28. The event is free, but space is limited. Register online at www. bpl.bc.ca/events/mcgill, by calling 604-299-8955, or in person at the library, 4595 Albert St.
Deconstructing through dance
Ever wondered what a psychology concept looks like as interpretive dance? No? Well, the Plastic Orchid Factory dance company did, and figured it out with their latest show
called “Chunking,” set to premiere at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, Nov. 28 to Dec. 1 at 8 p.m. In psychology terms, “chunking” refers to the selective grouping of memories by individuals when performing memoryrelated tasks. Inspired by this concept, choreographer James Gnam has created an evening-length contemporary dance work that explores how we relate to what we see. The work asks questions such as, how do we instantly deconstruct and prioritize an experience? And how do fragments of these experiences etch themselves into our individual and collective psyches? Lighting by James Proudfoot, media art by Josh Hite, sound design by Kevin Legere and performances by Natalie LeFebvre Gnam, Vanessa Goodman, Jane Osborne, Connor Gnam, James Gnam, and Bevin Poole. Tickets are $32/$27 /$25, available through the box office, by phone at 604205-3000, or email email@example.com, or online at www.tickets.shadbolt centre.com. Have an item for the Lively City?

Looking for EV hosts Metro Vancouver is looking for businesses and non-profit organizations to host electric vehicle charging stations, according to a press release. Up to 75 hosts will be pre-qualified for the free program, the release stated, with those participating eligible to receive up to $4,000 per charging stall. Metro Vancouver plans to develop a network of electric vehicle charging stations throughout the Lower Mainland. Municipalities involved in the project include Burnaby and New Westminster. “Our goal is to facilitate the creation of a network of charging stations, installed at places like malls, theatres and tourism destinations,” Metro Vancouver chair Greg Moore said in a previous release. “Making charging stations visible and accessible will build confidence in electric vehicles and will promote clean transport and clean air.” Information sessions on the electric vehicle charging station incentive program took place during the past two weeks, with the last one on Monday in Coquitlam in the city council chambers. Those who are interested in hosting a station should contact Metro Vancouver by
or 604-688-9769 ext. 135. Potential hosts will need to provide information such as the business or organization’s name, nature, location and hours of operation; the number of stations proposed; the proposed cost to the user, if the host plans to charge for the service; and photos or a map of the site, if possible. Hosts will also need to run a land title search to confirm ownership and also complete a budget worksheet provided by Metro Vancouver. Metro Vancouver was awarded a grant from B.C.’s Community Charging Infrastructure Fund for the project, and plans to find 75 to 150 highly-visible sites for the charging stations. “The grant will go toward pursuing private and public sector commitment to host the charging stations,” the release stated. Costs for the stations themselves will be split between the provincial government and regional site hosts.

Warren Chow, on the other hand, represents another demographic in Krav Maga that is slowly on the rise: those unrelated to military or policing who simply see the benefits, physical and otherwise, to the training. “I’m a manager in the IT field and a family man with two young children,” he said. Though he notes he’s not often in a setting where he might need to fight, he says knowing how to do so is a comfort. “If I ever find myself in the situation where I need to protect my family, then I’ll be ready – and in the meantime I’m keeping fit,” he said. “My worst nightmare would be to face a situation where I had to protect my family and I wasn’t able to do it.” But Krav Maga, he says, is tough business. “(It) will test you, both physically and mentally.”
Jiang agrees with that assessment – Krav Maga is intended to be challenging. Though masters can take a lifetime to perfect their art, the basics can be learned quickly and effectively – if you commit to it. “This is not a fitness class, it’s not an aerobics class to (get fit); it’s to learn to fight, to protect
yourself,” he says. The training – from pushups and sit-ups, to sparring with each other – will push people to their limits and ultimately improve fitness, but the true benefits come from within. Fader says the confidence that comes from feeling strong and capable is profound. “There have been times since I have learned (how to protect myself) where a physical confrontation or bullying (situation) has been avoided due to my ability to confidently present myself,” he says. “Had I not known I could handle myself, other people may have picked up on that and I may have found myself in a bit of trouble.” Both Fader and Jiang experienced bullying in younger years, but both have grown into confident men eager to teach others the lessons they’ve learned through Krav Maga – which, ultimately, isn’t about how to fight. “The founder (Lichtenfeld) often said that Krav Maga was important ‘So that one may walk in peace.’ It’s not to fight for the sake of fighting – to walk in peace, to be confident, to be able to protect yourself and others.” To find out more, see www.burnabykravmaga. com.

Who Needs Winter Tires?
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.

Be inspired and changed by your children HEALTHWISE
Dr. Davidicus Wong
hen I became a parent, I became a better person. I learned to love unconditionally – omniconditionally. From the moment I first held my son in my arms, I recognized the unfathomable responsibility and honour with which I had been entrusted. My every word and action would influence – for good or ill – the wellbeing of this precious person. He would learn from what I would tell him, what he overhears, how I relate to others, and how I act in our home and in the world. I had to set an example and be the best person I could be – not perfect – just a fallible human being striving to be my best, to be honest and kind, to be unselfish and giving, and to be a good father. In spite of my best intentions, I made mistakes. I did my best to be fair. I certainly didn’t want my middle child to feel neglected as I had felt (even though I wasn’t neglected). Recently, when my little niece showed me her wiggly tooth, I recalled the tooth fairy leaving a dollar for each of my children’s teeth, but I could recall fewer fairy visits for my middle child. I panicked. Had I neglected him in spite of my best efforts?
I asked him, “Do you I had missed. remember the Tooth Fairy When one of my sons giving you money for your was unable to recall the teeth?” moment he was able to “Only when I told you cycle without training and mom,” he answered. wheels, it reminded me He later produced a of a medical student I bottle of baby teeth. had mentored who forgot When my kids would the excitement of the first do things that irritated me, delivery he attended with I soon realized that most of me. the time they were reflectTo me, those moments ing aspects remained of my own vivid in my “My children personality memory and I – or my wife’s was at first dishave been my – that I had to but life’s three most appointed, acknowledge I realized that precious gifts, and make the things we peace with. and I have been do for others Along with we do for enriched by the them and not my patients, they were my ourselves.

michael keller email@example.com Speaking to an audience of roughly 120 Burnaby Board of Trade members and guests, Federal Immigration Minister Jason Kenney stressed a key message: Canada needs to have jobs available for immigrants coming to this country. The Minister’s talk was the highlight of a reception on November 9th presented by the Board of Trade in partnership with the Immigrant Employment Council of BC (IEC-BC). The BBOT regularly presents high profile elected officials as part of its Distinguished Speakers Series.
During his speech Kenney acknowledged Canada’s relatively well performing economy despite continued global struggles. He noted that Canada has the highest level of immigration in the developed world (tied with New Zealand), but that many new Canadians are underemployed or stuck in “survival jobs.” He commented that traditionally Canadians have been too polite to say no to anyone, and that has created problems in the system. He added that backlogs are very dysfunctional. Kenney cited expansion of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) as part of the government’s efforts to connect new
immigrants with employers, noting that the program also helps with better geographical distribution. He also spoke about Canadian Experience Class for international students and degree assessments for foreign workers as a way to validate qualifications and ensure credentials meet Canadian standards. English / French language proficiency was another speaking point for the Minister, as was an online matching system, which will be designed to let employers view applications and offer jobs in a more efficient manner.

Burnaby performer in Disney on Ice Why burn what Marelle Reid staff reporter
Twin brothers Chris and Nick Molnar were learning to skate almost as soon as they could walk. The Burnaby boys started playing hockey at the Burnaby Winter Club and getting coached in figure skating at 8 Rinks before they’d even started kindergarten. But at 15, they had to make a decision: would they focus on hockey or see where figure skating might take them? Though their lives had run parallel until that point, Nick chose hockey, and Chris decided on figure skating; and that, you might say, has made all the difference. Being somewhat smaller than Nick, Chris thought it would be harder to make it big as a hockey player, so he pursued competitive skating, moving to Montreal at 18 to compete in ice dancing with a partner at the national level, and later, competing in France. Now, at 23, both Molnars are committed to their sports and are thriving on the ice – Nick coaches a peewee team here at home – and Chris has no regrets
about not reaching for the NHL dream. “After I kind of matured a little, I think I could have probably got a little bigger (and been) a good hockey player, but I went far with skating as well, so I can’t really say that I wish I’d went with hockey.” Chris recently auditioned for and was hired by Disney On Ice, which tours internationally. “I’ve met lots of great people and got to see lots of cool places,” he said, noting he loves to perform for a live audience. “I’m still doing what I love, but the difference is that I’m getting paid for it, which is great, and I get to perform for a live audience, which is kind of the same as competing, but it’s not as stressful.” The Disney on Ice tour started two months ago in Mexico City and is making its way up the West Coast. The Dare To Dream show features three princess stories; Cinderella, Rapunzel, and The Princess and the Frog. Molnar has roles in each. “A lot of the people who are coming to the show haven’t seen me skate yet,

No kitchen should be without this tool ON COOKING
ver the years, I have discovered many simple methods that will help to easily perfect the meals that we serve. Some are so obvious, like a meat thermometer, it is bizarre when I come across a household that does not have one. Always during the approach of traditional holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, I seem to get bombarded with questions about how long a turkey should cook. Although I appreciate the opportunity for helping people in the kitchen, the answer to me always seems so obvious that it is surprising that more people don’t already have the solution. Not only will a simple oven-proof meat thermometer help to save your turkey dinner, it will also be the resolution to mastering the doneness of a myriad of meat roasting recipes. I have owned my current meat thermometer for probably close to 15 years now, and it is still going strong. Not bad for an investment of only a few dollars. Be certain that you are purchasing one that is heat resistant (oven proof) so that it can be left in the piece of meat for the entire cooking process. If an instant read thermometer is used instead, and the temperature is checked at a number of intervals, valued juices will be lost from the
meat with each puncture. One of the most important goals in cooking meat is to keep it moist while still reaching the desired doneness. The area of a turkey where the thermometer should be inserted is the thickest part of the inner thigh without touching the bone. A stuffed turkey should be done when it reads 180F (82C), and unstuffed at 170F (77C). You should also notice that the legs move easily when twisted and the juices run clear. There is a difference in these two temperature readings because a stuffed turkey is denser, and the stuffing needs to reach a high enough temperature to kill any bacteria present. This being said, I do realize that people appreciate approximate cooking times to effectively coordinate side dishes to the main course, and it is for this reason only that I will provide guidelines for you. Do not use these parameters as your main indication of doneness, but rather as an additional plan to your trusty meat thermometer. Below is a chart with general cooking times, based on if you cook your turkey at 325F (160C). There are many factors, for example, that will play havoc on the final accuracy of the cooking time: the temperature of the turkey prior to roasting, the temperature of the stuffing (if used), or
maybe your oven is running a bit hotter or colder than the set temperature. Where you decide to purchase your meat thermometer is not important, as they are available almost everywhere. What is important is that you get one and enjoy the benefits of it for years to come. Dear Chef Dez: I heard that it important to let a (turkey) “rest” when it comes out of the oven, before carving it. Is this true, and why? Brad B. Abbotsford, B.C. Dear Brad: This is true. Actually it is true with all cuts of meat. The “resting” period gives the meat time to adjust coming from the extreme heat to room temperature. During the cooking process, the high heat causes the atoms in the molecular structure of the meat to move at a high rate of speed. If the meat is cut into soon after it has been removed from the oven, grill, or pan, it will lose a large degree of its vital juices that keep it moist and flavourful. ◆ Send your food/cooking questions todez@chefdez. com or P.O.

Winner: Jonathan Farbridge, right, is the winner of this Venus Tech Team six-
speed bike. Farbridge entered a contest held by Burnaby Autobody owner Brian Borsoff last summer, after his shop fixed up the found bike. Borsoff, on the left, plans to repair more bikes and donate them to children in need.
The joy of new wheels Janaya Fuller-Evans
Young Jonathan Farbridge is the proud owner of a new bike, thanks to Burnaby Autobody. Farbridge won the bicycle through a contest held by Burnaby Autobody owner Brian Borsoff. “He was ecstatic about it,” Borsoff said of Jonathan. The local boy, who Borsoff said was about five years old, is not quite big enough to ride the bike yet. “He’s not quite ready on it, maybe next year,” he said, adding Farbridge will grow into the bike and be able to use it for a while. Borsoff added reflective decals to the bike for safety and engraved Jonathan’s name on the bike, to keep people from stealing it. “I just put tonnes of reflective decals on it, I mean, that’s going to light up like
a Christmas tree in the nighttime, but that’s what you want,” he said. The shop’s mascot, Remley – a black and white dog that Borsoff rescued from a shelter in Quesnel last year – was also on hand for the giveaway. Borsoff decided to hold the contest this summer after finding the Venus Tech Team six-speed, and cleaning and fixing it up at the shop. “I’ve got this bike, which is virtually brand new,” Borsoff said in an interview with the NOW in August. “We did a little bit of touchup on it. It’s like a $200 bike.” The bike was found in the bushes one day, and Borsoff was trying to decide whom to give it to when he had the idea for the contest.

Home support conference Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
The importance of home support workers was key for B.C. Ombudsperson Kim Carter, speaking at a recent conference on seniors home support. The one-day conference, which was on Oct. 16 at a hotel in Burnaby, was attended by union representatives, home support employers, workers and government officials. Carter, one of the guest speakers, said the recognition of the importance and value of home support workers was the main focus of her presentation. “There were a lot of front-line home support workers in the audience. They were a very engaged d i t t d di
because they live with a number of the issues we’ve identified on a daily basis,” Carter said. Some of those issues include equal protection for people speaking out against elder abuse or inadequate care and establishing a standardized time allotment for certain home-care tasks. For instance, Carter’s presentation included a case where an elderly woman’s home support hours were cut in half because the health authority believed the same number of tasks could be performed in less time. Once Carter’s office investigated the complaint, the health authority reversed its assertion and restored most of the home support hours. A standardized time allotment for home-care tasks would help ensure agencies
providing home support are all on the same page, since many measure the things they do to help seniors differently. Home care, Carter noted in her presentation, saves the government money. People whose home support services were cut ended up costing the health-care system 52 per cent more than who were receiving help at home. Carter has made 176 recommendations to government to improve care for seniors – recommendations regarding home and community care, home support, assisted living and residential care. The government is reviewing those recommendations. In the meantime, those with complaints can contact the Ombudsperson at 1 800 567 3247

WHEELS Deals Dad’s road trip idea will make good memories AND
Burnaby NOW • Wednesday, November 21, 2012 • A31
CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi
Dear Tom and Ray: My dad has a 1962 Studebaker Hawk that he bought three years ago, when he was in chemotherapy. He got it out of a barn in Wisconsin, where it had sat for more than 30 years. It has 80,000 miles on it, and it’s in pretty good shape. The paint is worn out, and it needs some interior work. He loves this old car and wants to take my brother and me on a trip on old Route 66 next summer starting in Chicago and going to somewhere in Missouri. I’m 14, and my brother is 12. Dad has done a lot of work on it. He’s added seatbelts, modern disc brakes and
dual master cylinders; he’s converted the generator to an alternator; and he’s added an electronic ignition and a modern carburetor. Mom is not thrilled with the road-trip idea. She says the car is too old and undependable. For example, the gas gauge doesn’t work (Dad says that he just has to know how far he’s driven), it does not have air conditioning and he disconnected the heater. He promised to get the non-working AM radio repaired and fix the small hole in the front floor before we go. Who is right – Mom or Dad? Should we go on this trip, or will we break down in the middle of some cornfields in Illinois? Are we going to melt in this old car? Dad says the vent windows and fender vents will keep us from getting too hot. The car is two years older than my dad.
He really wants to take stride. this trip. Thank you. And, since he’s a guy Zach who wants to make this RAY: Will you break trip in a ‘62 Studebaker, down in the cornfields of he’ll also show his sons Illinois? Yes – and lots of that fun can be had under other places.

And he plans It’ll give your dad a to take the old, slower chance to show his sons Route 66, rather than risk how to handle adversity your safety at 75 mph on and solve problems, and the highway with tandem how to take things in trailers whizzing by.
RAY: So my suggestion is to assure Mom that you’re taking reasonable precautions. That means bringing two things along with you.
TOM: No. 1 is a cellphone, so that when you break down and your dad is unable to fix the problem himself, you can call for help. You may even want to download our iPhone app called “Breakdown Lane” from iTunes. RAY: It uses your iPhone’s GPS data to find the closest highly rated repair shops anywhere in the country – whatever cornfield or city you break down in. TOM: And the second thing you need to bring is a credit card. You’ll use that to either pay for parts and repairs, or, if worse comes
to worst, buy three bus tickets home and take the Studebaker’s plates with you.
RAY: Either way, it’ll be a great adventure that you’ll all remember for the rest of your lives. So go for it. And have Mom call us if she needs some more convincing. Auto repairs can be costly!

scored the game-winner in the 82nd minute with his first goal of the season. “We’re absolutely ecstatic right now,” said Clan head coach Alan Koch, in an SFU press release. “I take my hat off to Incarnate Word, they made life very difficult for us and they played some fantastic football. Our guys showed a lot of character. It wasn’t our best performance tonight and the game-winner wasn’t the prettiest goal, but we’ll take it.” Voegeli’s marker came off a crossing pass from Chris Bargholz that
Knights and Irish in grid semis
deflected off the defender and into the goal. The win made NCAA history for SFU, whichbecame the first nonAmerican program to earn a berth into the semifinals of a national championship tournament. It was also just the second time that a Great Northwest Conference team has won the West Region title. In 2004, Seattle University won the regional banner and then went on to win the NCAA title at the nationals. But having to spend more than a week on the road took a toll on the SFU
team. "We've preached dealing with adversity and we had a week of it. But we came out with flying colours," said Koch after arriving back in Burnaby on Monday. SFU will face Midwest Region champion and No. 2-ranked Saginaw Valley State in the national semifinals on Nov. 29. "Saginaw Valley is hot and on a bit of a streak," Koch added. "It's always dangerous, they have a sense of belief, but we have belief (in ourselves), too." Earlier this month, SFU won a thrilling 2-1 win over
Grand Canyon University in the regional semifinals, also held in Phoenix. Matt Besuschko got the Clan on the board first on a late first-half corner from Juan Sanchez in the 42nd minute. Grand Canyon answered back midway through the second half on a successful penalty kick. But with the clock in the 87th minute, Bargholz crossed the ball to Carlo Basso, who headed home his 13th goal of the season for the game-winner. “Justin (Wallace) made SFU Page 34
It will be a traditional Catholic school rivalry this Saturday. The St. Thomas More Knights, under head coach Bernie Kully, will get a third crack at the Vancouver College Fighting Irish following a 40-14 win over the Notre Dame Jugglers at UBC’s Thunderbird Stadium on Saturday. The Knights got nearly 100 yards and three rushing touchdowns from Elliott Nelson in the B.C. high school AAA football quarter-final win over the East Vancouver/Burnaby regional school. Nelson scored two firstquarter TDs in his first game back off an injury, including a 10-yard run up the middle with five seconds remaining in the opening period that put the Knights up 14-7. STM stopped the Jugglers on their next possession and got great field position when the ensuing punt attempt went to ground at the Notre Dame 28-yard line. Five plays later, all-star receiver Giovanni Trasolini caught a Chase Malcolm pass on a slant pattern and scored from 11 yards out. A fourth Knights scoring drive was stopped at the goalline when Notre Dame’s Anthony Quatrano intercepted a Malcolm pass. STM opened the second half with a quick, threeplay scoring drive that culminated in a razzle-dazzle, 44-yard touchdown run from Jalen Jana. Nelson, who rushed for nearly 100 yards in the win, got his third TD to begin the fourth quarter on a two-yard run off tackle. “Getting Moose (Nelson) back was key. It’s a different vibe when he’s on the team. He’s our heart even when he’s not on the field,” said STM linebacker and backup running back Noah Usherwood, who got the Knights final rushing TD, and an interception on defence. “We play for our starters, and they play for when the seconds come on.

HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL
Volley Vikings pip Pipers for berth Tom Berridge
The Burnaby North Vikings will be going to the quad A B.C. high school girls’ volleyball provincials as the No. 2 Lower Mainland seed. The unranked Vikes defeated North Shore champion Argyle Pipers 15-11 in a fifth-set tiebreaker in the semifinals at Killarney Secondary on Saturday. The victory in the semifinal over Argyle ensured North of a choice seeding at the provincials to be held at Riverside Secondary from Nov. 28 to Dec. 1. But it took a lot of soul searching and a fourth-set comeback to do it. “This was our best chance to advance,” said North setter Cecelia Su. “In the first set we played like a team – lots of energy. But when they found our weak spots, our energy went from high to low. … We had to want it, really want it.” And North proved they did. After a perhaps surprising and near-perfect opening 25-15 set over Argyle, the Pipers took a 2-1 lead following 25-20, 25-18 wins in the next two sets. Facing elimination, the Vikes gutted out a 25-23 win to force a fifth and final set. Grade 9 Kaitlyn Tsang had a kill and shared block with junior Stephanie Chau
before scoring the gamewinning point. In the tiebreaker, senior power Layla Balooch scored eight of North’s final points, including her 19th kill of the match, to lead the upset over Argyle. North went on to lose the Mainland final in three sets to No. 7-ranked McMath of Richmond later in the day. North won its pool with wins over host Killarney and West Vancouver in a three-setter on Thursday. The Vikings advanced into the final four with a 3-0 sweep over Winston Churchill later that evening. “I’m so happy now that we’re guaranteed a spot,” said Su. “We don’t have to play scared. We can play free.” Burnaby South was unable to advance into Saturday’s championship round, finishing third in its pool following losses to both Argyle and Churchill. Argyle went on to beat Handsworth for the third Mainland qualifying berth. Elsewhere, the Moscrop junior girls won the Vancouver and District volleyball title with a 2-1 victory over Elphinstone at Handsworth Secondary. En route to the banner, Moscrop dropped just one set in three games to earn a spot at next week’s B.C. junior provincials at South Delta Secondary on Nov. 23 and 24.
Marco Voegeli, in white, scored the gamewinning goal for Simon Fraser University’s men’s soccer team at the NCAA West Region final last Saturday.

a great play in our own half. He got the ball up to Chris (Bargholz), who put a beautiful ball in to me, and I didn’t really have to do much, to be honest,” said Basso in a release. The Clan will have nearly two weeks to prepare for its Final Four showdown against Saginaw Valley State that takes place in Evans, Georgia from Nov. 28
to Dec. 1. Atlantic region representative Mercyhurst will play South champion Lynn University in the other semifinal. In the most recent National Soccer Coaches' poll, SFU was ranked second overall, while Lynn came in at the 11th spot. Saginaw Valley was ranked 12th and Mercyhurst 14th in the coaches' poll.
Senior ends career with win Burnaby’s Megan Ellis chose Seniors Night to pay a fitting farewell to the Portland State Vikings varsity women’s volleyball program. The Alpha Secondary grad nailed the matchwinning kill to give Portland State a four-set win over Idaho State and the Vikings’ fourth Big Sky Conference title in the last six years. Ellis finished with her 17th double-double of the season, tallying a teamhigh 16 kills and 14 digs in the 25-23, 21-25, 25-20, 25-18 victory over Idaho State. The win earned Portland State the No. 1 seeding into the Big Sky tournament in Greeley, Colorado this weekend. On Friday, Ellis added seven kills to help Portland State to its 20th win of the season following a threeset sweep over Weber State. Ellis finished the Big Sky season seventh in the conference with 366 total kills. The Burnaby middle hitter was also second on the Portland State team with 341 total digs, second in total points, third with 23 service aces and fourth in total blocks. Portland State finished the year with an overall record of 21-10.

team effort. We’re showing right now that we can hang with the big boys.” STM rushed the ball for 250 yards, while Malcolm was good on eight-of-14 pass attempts for 183 yards and one TD. Jana, who had more than 100 all-purpose yards in the win, also caught a pass for a 35-yard gain. Malcolm Lee, Dante Vigini and Trasolini had a couple of catches for the Knights. Michael Aranzaso rushed for 77 yards for the Jugglers. Quatrano also had a 43-yard kickoff return in the final quarter that set up Notre Dame’s final score by Aranzaso on a two-yard run. We’re almost back (healthy), and it’s coming, it’s coming at a good time,” said Kully after the game. But who will emerge as the provincial finalists this season is still anybody’s guess. During the regular season, the top four teams, STM, College, W.J. Mouat and Mt. Douglas, all had just one loss and each one was to one another, making this year’s betting line way too close to call. “I’m ready to go, and the Grade 12s have a history with Vancouver College,” Kully added. “Vancouver College beat us in the Grade 8 final, and as juniors, we lost to College in the semifinals. This should be ammunition for them. It is for me. I was there for both games.” The matchup between STM and Vancouver College is scheduled for Saturday at 8 p.m. at T-Bird Stadium.

Burnaby Lake knocks off league-leading ’Lomas Meraloma 22-metre line. From there, Burnaby kept up the attack until team captain Mike Gough bulled his way over the line to tie the contest. Reekie converted to put the visitors ahead 18-16. Minutes later, Reekie booted a third penalty for the Lakers. The victory improved Burnaby Lake’s record to 3-3, just two bonus points short of fourth-place University of Victoria, which boasts a similar record. Burnaby Lake also got the better of the Meraloma
