Pipeline is near schools Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

School board chair Larry Hayes wants to sit down with Kinder Morgan to come up with a plan to deal with potential oil spills at local schools close to the Trans Mountain pipeline. “We are going to be renewing our consultation with Kinder Morgan. They would know the issues and know what’s probably required in a safety plan to deal with the potential risk, so that’s going to be something we are going to be proactive in doing,” Hayes said. On Monday, Hayes told the NOW that he’s aware of three schools that are close to the pipeline: Lyndhurst, Stoney Creek and Forest Grove elementaries – but he wasn’t clear on details. Last Friday, BROKE – Burnaby Residents Opposing Kinder Morgan Expansion – started asking about school safety plans in the event of an oil spill, given the Trans Mountain pipeline runs beneath the school grounds at Stoney Creek, the same school where Kinder Morgan held its first local information session on the pipeline expansion plan. “From what I was told, (at) Stoney Creek, there are three lines in the right-of-way, I believe one’s jet fuel and one’s gasoline, and the other one I wasn’t sure was just crude,” Hayes said. Burnaby resident Don Osborn has two young girls attending Stoney Creek Elementary, and he was unaware that a pipeline runs beneath Pipeline Page 5

No lay offs: Roughly 200 people showed up for a workers’ rally at George Derby Centre on Saturday, protesting a decision to lay off more than 90 unionized workers and contract out their jobs. The non-profit centre’s board of directors announced a moratorium on the decision at the rally.

Derby workers get reprieve

Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The board behind Burnaby’s George Derby Centre, a care home for veteran seniors, has halted the decision to contract out more than 90 unionized jobs. The board’s decision was made Friday, just one day before a workers’ rally at the centre that drew a crowd of more than 200. “During our rally, the board of directors – two of them came out – and asked if they could speak, and they delivered the message: At a special meeting (Friday), they decided they would put a moratorium

on the contracting out at George Derby Centre, and the layoffs would also have moratorium,” said Margi Blamey, spokesperson for the Hospital Employees’ Union, which represents the workers who were about to be laid off. “The crowd absolutely erupted, it was fantastic.” Ike Hall, George Derby Care Society acting president, made the announcement at the rally. In a Nov. 24 press release, Hall said the board is committed to “ensuring the continuity of care for the residents” at George Derby. There are approximately 300 residents at George Derby, and the majority suffer from dementia. Faced with budget constraints,

the centre decided to lay off more than 90 unionized workers by the end of April 2013 and contract out their services to save money in order to deliver more care hours to the residents. Hall said the board would review contract negotiations with the Hospital Employees’ Union in order to determine the next steps. He also said the board will resume direct talks with Veterans Affairs Canada and the Fraser Health Authority for increased funding. Hall called on residents’ families, supporting partners, volunteers, MPs, MLAs, the labour movement and the public

Elmer Rudolph counts 475 chum in Brunette River compared to a dozen during past yearly counts Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Favourable ocean conditions are likely the main reason behind Burnaby’s recent record return of chum salmon. “When you have a big return like that, it has to be good ocean conditions for the juvenile fish when they are feeding at sea,” said John Reynolds, an SFU professor and the Tom Buell B.C. leadership chair in salmon conservation. An abundance of food and “low predation” are two examples of favourable ocean conditions for the tiny fish, Reynolds explained. Chum salmon are very small when they first go to sea, he said. They don’t spend a year in fresh water first the way sockeye do. “These are very small fish, and they are going to be riding the waves of ocean productivity in a very acute way,” he said. Local streamkeeping groups have been reporting chum returning in higher numbers and in further reaches of Burnaby’s network of waterways. Elmer Rudolph, president of the Sapperton Fish and Game Club, said in a typical good year, he may see around a dozen chum return to the Brunette River at the Cariboo Dam. This year, he’s counted 475, and that’s not including the 1,300 fish that have been counted in Stoney Creek, downstream from the dam. (The most they’ve had in recent years is 1,000.) “We’ve seen an absolute record number of chum come over the dam,” Rudolph said. “We have absolutely no idea why. We don’t know whether it’s a trend or a one-off deal.” Eagle Creek Streamkeepers president Nick Kvenich is also reporting extraordinary numbers of chum returning. “The fish are going everywhere. We have them up our creek, where they’ve never gone before,” he said, adding they’ve reached as far as Broadway, Salmon Page 4

Always busy: Retired teacher and longtime Burnaby resident Betty Griffin drafted a petition and collected signatures from fellow residents in her seniors’ complex to support veterans.

Senior rallies residents

Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Since staff at Harmony Court home weren’t working on Remembrance Day, 90-year-old Betty Griffin decided to organize a ceremony on her own. Armistice Day, as she calls it, came on a Sunday, and staff at the Burnaby seniors’ home hadn’t organized anything. “I just went (and) planned myself,” Griffin said, matter-of-factly. She gathered the residents to watch a Remembrance Day ceremony on TV, found three vets in the building and introduced them to the audience. “And I thanked them and gave them a big hug, and God bless them, they cried,” she said. “There were people in the audience that wept.” But the ceremony wasn’t enough. Upset by news reports of veterans’ concerns over pensions and burials, Griffin also drafted a petition to Prime Minister Stephen Harper in support of a veterans’ class action suit that was filed with the B.C. Supreme Court on Oct. 30. The suit’s main allegation is that the New Veterans Charter, enacted in 2006, has reduced benefits by 40 to 90 per cent for injured soldiers, depending of the severity of the injury.

Pipeline: Location causes concerns his daughters’ school. “I would think there would be some kind of disclosure from the school. By all means, I would want to know what the safety contingency plans are. The school seems to have a pretty organized safety procedure,” he said, adding he would like to know if there are any environmental concerns related to the pipeline. “With (the) earthquake related thing, that would be my question, what kind of risk is there? Is it flammable stuff? If it ruptured, could it set the school on fire.” Last week, the NOW spoke to the principal at Forest Grove, who didn’t know anything about a pipeline near the school. “I don’t know if sending out bulletins to parents, if there are pipelines running across the field, would raise undue alarm,” Hayes said. Hayes also said Burnaby schools have very robust emergency preparedness plans, but there is nothing in place to deal with oil spills. “We have to remember these pipelines have been there for decades. Until something happens, nobody expects something to happen,” he said. “I was assured by district staff, any of those school where

pipelines are near, we don’t do indiscriminate digging.” The Trans Mountain pipeline has been transporting oil from Alberta to Burnaby since 1953. Kinder Morgan, the pipeline’s operator, wants to twin the line, to more than double capacity, and plans to follow the existing right-of-way where possible. But because Burnaby is a densely populated area, the company is looking elsewhere for alternate routes. According to Andrew Galarnyk, external relations director with Kinder Morgan Canada, the Trans Mountain mainline right-of-way runs through two Burnaby school district properties: Stoney Creek and Forest Grove. “On both properties, the right-of-way is adjacent to the school grounds – one is beside a playing field, the other runs out front of the school under a community garden,” he wrote in an email to the NOW. “To be clear, neither pipeline would run beneath a school building. In terms of safety at schools and all along the pipeline, our priority is to keep the public and employees safe by having damage prevention and integrity management programs in place to ensure the safe and reliable operation of our pipelines.”

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Days of our lives – in Burnaby Dear Editor:

Who doesn’t enjoy watching a good soap opera? With a dedicated group of followers, these shows can continue on for decades. The beauty of the soap is that no matter how long you manage to avoid watching the storyline and the cast of characters essentially remains the same. Currently, I’m watching General Hospital- Burnaby Edition. In this narrative there are two feuding families, the B.C. NDP and the Liberals. Both are affluent, well-connected and nasty toward the other as they fight for control in the city. Like any good soap, the cast it employs has changed little over the past decade. For the loyal followers of the show we have the recognizable

elders quick to offer sage advice. There are also the operatives behind the scenes that enjoy the control but shun the spotlight. Finally, there are the rising stars who join the cast to appeal to a changing demographic but have essentially no influence on the direction of the show. If you just tuned in, the current storyline revolves around the consultation for the new hospital. The plot goes something like this: The Liberal operatives schemed to regain influence in the city, by using the much needed new hospital as the issue. A new cast of rising Liberal stars, young doctors, was to be introduced to appeal to the changing demographic. With a higher profile, the Liberal family would

once again rise to prominence in Burnaby. When the script was “leaked,” the viewers of the unfolding drama sympathized with the victimized NDP. Unfortunately, when all the theatrics are removed, residents and hospital staff are still stuck with a serious health situation – a shortage of acute care beds and opportunistic infections. While the Liberals have done little or nothing to rectify the situation, it is noteworthy to remember it was the previous NDP government in 2000 that chose to close the 205-bed, extended care Cascade Residence – a functional, public, extended care facility attached to Burnaby Hospital, according to the Hospital Employees Union. Clearly, closing an extended care facility under hospital control and in close proximity to Burnaby Hospital in favour of a smaller facility under a different administration would impede the transfer of sick seniors as their care status changed. Are not the circumstances Doug Evans’ family complained about recently a result of the initial decision by Adrian Dix, Corky Evans and the NDP 12 years ago? At the time, the NDP held all three Burnaby ridings, yet this decision which the HEU called “wrong” went unchallenged. The NDP’s “farm team” at City Hall called the move “logical.” Instead of playing politics with seniors’

lives and finger pointing, it is time to fix the problem by ensuring there is an adequate continuum of care and sufficient spaces for this growing portion of the population. Rick McGowan, Burnaby Greens

Don’t slash, build Dear Editor:

The next election is inevitably going to be a discussion of what to do with what little money is left to the provincial government. We’re still in a deficit as far as tax receipts and government revenue is concerned, and the almighty business gods are demanding a sacrificial balanced budget by the incoming B.C. government to demonstrate our slavish devotion to the needs of the corporate confidence fairy, which will allow businesses to start hiring again. This view is not only wrong; it’s harmful to our economy. The idea that we must slash expenditures on fundamental programs in order to end deficit spending is not going to prepare us for the economy of the future. All it is going to do is create a downward spiral where jobs will become less skilled, and wages will decrease. This will inevitably reduce tax revenue, requiring another set of devastating cuts to the social programs used by society. The real answer to building a stronger B.C. economy is in skills training, and in producing the infrastructure needed for businesses to expand on their own. Trevor Ritchie, Burnaby

Election: Tight race in Abby continued from page 6

This messy affair will no doubt cost the B.C. Liberals votes. Gill and his supporters are planning on some kind of revenge, although it’s not clear what, exactly, that will entail. But Plecas, van Dongen and the B.C. Conservative candidate will all be fighting over slices of the same pie now. The centre-right vote bloc will now be split three ways, instead of the usual two. The person to benefit most from this unusual scenario is the NDP candidate Lhakvinder Jhaj, who is no doubt smiling a lot these days. She is now the only Indo-Canadian in the race, which gives her yet another advantage in a riding that has a large IndoCanadian community. The NDP candidate

got almost 26 per cent of the vote in 2009, which was nowhere near van Dongen’s winning total of course. But look at it this way. About 9,500 people voted for the B.C. Liberals last time, and about 4,200 voted for the NDP. If the NDP can boost its total vote by about 1,000 people (a safe proposition, given the party’s rise in the polls and the everchanging demographic of the riding, which is becoming younger), it can achieve victory if 3,300 or so B.C. Liberal voters either vote for van Dongen or someone else. Given the party’s treatment of Gill, and van Dongen’s own personal popularity, such a scenario doesn’t seem far-fetched. There’s another reason the NDP may be gaining

confidence in AbbotsfordSouth. The latest Angus Reid poll shows the B.C. Liberals continue to have trouble hanging onto their supporters from the previous election. About one-third of previous B.C. Liberal voters say they won’t back the party this time around. In Abbotsford-South that translates to about 3,200 voters – about the number the NDP needs to pull out a victory. Given the B.C. Liberal party’s internal problems in the riding, I suspect the number of disaffected party voters may be even higher. This all adds up to making Abbotsford-South a riding to watch next May 13.

Two men are dead after a brazen Monday morning shooting at the Executive Hotel and Conference Centre at 4201 Lougheed Hwy. Sgt. Jennifer Pound of the RCMP’s integrated homicide investigation team confirmed at a Monday afternoon press conference that two men, one a Caucasian and the second an IndoCanadian, died after sustaining gunshot wounds just before 11:30 a.m. Monday. The Vancouver Sun’s Kim Bolan received confirmation Monday from sources in both law enforcement and organized crime that the victims were gangster Sukh Dhak and his bodyguard Thomas Mantel. Both men were wellknown to police and those involved in the B.C. gang scene. Dhak, 28, was currently on trial in B.C. Supreme Court for conspiracy and trafficking ecstasy back in 2008. The trial had been adjourned until Nov. 27. Mantel, 30, was due in Surrey Provincial Court in January for charges of dangerous driving and obstructing a police officer laid in 2010 after an encounter with the gang task force. The burly, tattooed Mantel would often escort the diminutive Dhak through the Vancouver Law Courts, walking with him from the parking lot to the sixth floor where Dhak’s trial was held. When the pair arrived at the security gate with an X-ray machine and metal detector, Dhak would go through, while Mantel would leave before he could be screened. Monday’s shooting at the business hotel located along a busy Burnaby thoroughfare was a shocking incident that traumatized the hotel staff on duty. The hotel was behind police tape for most of

Hospital report Water, utility rates go up six per cent will be out soon Janaya Fuller-Evans

staff reporter

Janaya Fuller-Evans and Alfie Lau staff reporters

The long-awaited Burnaby Hospital community consultation committee report is set to be released to the public as early as this Friday. According to Burnaby-Lougheed MLA Harry Bloy, who chaired the committee, the 127-page report is going through its final edits and will be released very soon. “It will be out as early as late this week,” Bloy told the Burnaby NOW Tuesday morning. “It’s going to be released either Friday or Monday.” Bloy said people who are skeptical about the contents should reserve judgment until they read the entire report. “I think people need to appreciate the hundreds of hours of work these volunteers did in putting this report together,” he said. “The comments I’ve seen, I think they’ve been blown out of proportion. These are people with no axes to grind. They were there for a better hospital; they were there for a better community. I think the comments about their objectivity doesn’t reflect the amount of volunteer work they’ve put into this.” Bloy was referring to the recent controversy regarding emails and a letter between members of the committee and Liberal Party insiders. The correspondence was given to The Vancouver Sun by the New Democratic Party of B.C. The leaked letter, written last winter, indicates the consultation process for Burnaby Hospital was sparked by political motivations to retain the Liberal Burnaby North and Lougheed ridings, and to win the Burnaby-Deer Lake riding currently held by NDP MLA Kathy Corrigan. The emails from September and October also indicate there were political motivations involved, and suggest the committee report is going to conclude the issues with the hospital and lack of resources are the responsibility of the Fraser Health authority, not the Liberal government. But Bloy stressed the focus should be on the report itself. “I’m super pleased with the amount of work that has been put into this,” he said. The committee was formed last spring with Bloy as the chair, Burnaby North Liberal MLA Richard Lee as the vicechair, and Pamela Gardner as the citizen chair. The hospital has been contending with major health issues, particularly the ongoing C. Difficile infection outbreaks reported over the past year and a half.

Burnaby’s water and sewer utility rates are increasing by six per cent each next year. Burnaby council approved the increases at Monday night’s council meeting. The water rate increase is due to an increase in supply cost of water provided by the Greater Vancouver Water District, according to a report from the city’s director of finance, Denise Jorgenson. The waterworks utility rate increase comes to about $29 more per single-family household in the city, up to $516 from $487 if the charges are paid before March 15, according to the report. The flat sewer parcel tax will increase by $27 to $486 per single-family household if paid before March 15, accord-


ing to a second report, and the flat sewer use fee – an additional fee for multi-family dwellings – will increase by $15 to $263. All utility fee payments made before March 15 include a five per cent discount, so payments made after that date are five per cent more. The rates increased by the same percentage last year, but are down when compared with the previous four years. In 2011, Burnaby’s waterworks utility rate increased by 11 per cent; in 2010 it was 14 per cent; in 2009 it was 12 per cent, and in 2008 it was 11 per cent, according to the report. The sewer utility rate increased by 7.5 per cent in 2011; 8.5 per cent in 2010, and nine per cent in 2009, according to the second report from the director of finance.

On display: Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan, left, and Intracorp president Don Forsgren unveil a planned installation art piece, Shed, which will be located at the Silver development site once the building is completed.

Public art for Beresford Installation art planned for future Metrotown site Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

There may not be deer roaming through South Burnaby any longer but that doesn’t mean you won’t find an antler there. Shed, an installation art piece by Jacqueline Metz and Nancy Chew, will be part of the Beresford art walk planned for Metrotown. “We often think about landscape and what was there before,” Metz said in a phone interview with the NOW. “So we were thinking about the landscape of Burnaby and what the natural environment was, and we went through photos in the archives, and we came across photos of deer.” The duo has been creating together since 1997. The artists decided to go with a large-scale cast

aluminum antler for the Beresford piece. “We’re kind of fascinated by the shape of antlers – they’re elegant, and they’re elemental – so we chose to use that,” she said. “It’s as though a giant deer has passed by and there’s this fallen antler from a mythical deer.” The size of the piece will make it a place marker in the corner plaza, she added. “It’s something you can stand sheltered within or pass through,” Metz said. The artists, who have pieces throughout Canada and the U.S., like to work on idea-driven pieces, she added. “We really like the conceptual aspect of art,” she said, adding the material aspects, such as light, texture and form, also figure into their work. “We’re also very interested in the public realm, and how you place something in an urban environment, and how people react and how people move

through a site,” Metz said. Shed is slated to be installed in 2015, according to Metz. The artists introduced the concept for the piece at the recent groundbreaking for the Silver development at the corner of Beresford Street and Silver Avenue. The excavation for Silver is 90 per cent complete, according to Lesley Bidlake, senior marketing manager at Intracorp Projects, and concrete is being poured for the footings and crane base. “Construction’s coming along very well at Silver,” she said. Five retail spaces have also been purchased on the site, though Bidlake could not confirm who the tenants would be at this point. “We’re very happy with our progress on that front,” she said. The 38-storey development is expected to be completed in early 2015. jfuller-evans@

Festive fun gives boost to bureau Plenty of activities are coming up in the city to help with bureau effort Christina Myers staff reporter

Get out your calendar, grab your pencil and mark down these dates to prepare for a busy month of fun activities that help support the Burnaby Christmas Bureau. From toy drives to a trip down memory lane, there’s plenty to do to help out this season.

Up in the Heights

On Dec. 1, the Heights Merchant Association in North Burnaby will be celebrating the season with their annual Light up the Heights event. The event, which is slated to include an open-air holiday market, live music, kids activities, and more, runs from 3 to 5 p.m. at Heights Fountain Square (Hastings and MacDonald.) The event is free, but organizers will be collecting donations of new and unwrapped toys for the bureau. For more information, see www.

At the village

Later this month, fundraising will take a historical twist at the Burnaby Village Museum. The popular attraction, which is currently running its Heritage Christmas programming, will help collect funds for the bureau on Dec. 15, when it opens at night for the first time this season. All the revenue from carousel tickets purchased from 4 to 9 p.m. that night will be donated to the bureau. Heritage Christmas, which runs through the month, includes festive light displays, seasonal crafts, caroling, Father Christmas and more. For more, see www.burnabyvillagemu

At the Hilton

The Burnaby Firefighters Charitable Society, along with Scotia Bank, is gearing up for their inaugural – and hopefully annual – toy drive and Christmas Angel breakfast this Friday, Nov. 30, from 6 to 9 a.m. The event is taking place at the Hilton Vancouver Metrotown. Participants are asked to bring a Bureau Page 13

Volunteering to spread cheer Volunteers help out in many ways each year with bureau campaign Christina Myers staff reporter

From the outside looking in, the Burnaby Christmas Bureau is a well organized, smooth-running operation this time of year. Low-income families come in starting in November to get registered, storage shelves start filling up with toy donations, groups phone up to become sponsors and, by Christmas, plenty of cheer and generosity has been dispensed. But the two-month rush between Nov. 1 and the holidays is an increasingly frantic time for the bureau as they work through the families – with more coming each year – hoping to register, and as they work to raise enough money and toys to help everyone who needs it. Without volunteers, it would likely be an insurmountable task. Volunteers with the bureau do everything from tidying the toy room, to helping families find what they need for their children, to serving as drivers to bring back toy donations from drop-boxes

around the city. They also help with the senior hamper program, administrative tasks and a variety of other jobs that need doing throughout the season. For many, it becomes an annual tradition and a big part of celebrating the holiday season. Darcy O’Shea with the Burnaby Power Squadron (a division of the Canadian Power and Sail Squadron, a non-profit group aimed at teaching safe boating) told the NOW that his group has been lending a hand for almost a decade. “This year coming up, I think, is our eighth,” he said. “My wife and I had been donating for a long time and then I found out that they took volunteers at the Christmas season.” O’Shea said he immediately thought of his fellow Power Squadron members. “Our group is full of people who are happy to volunteer and step forward, and we had developed a theme of giving back to the community with different (activities).” It worked out well, he says. “As soon as we did it that first year, we were hooked,” he said. The group works in the toy distribution room in the days lead-

ing up to Christmas. A volunteer works with a parent to take them through the toy area, finding what they need and making sure the process goes smoothly. “Some of them come in, and it’s one child they’re looking for gifts for – some, it’s more. We do what we can to help them find what they need.” O’Shea says it’s a pleasure to participate and see the impact on the parents, for whom the season can be particularly stressful. “It’s always a good feeling when we take people through and they’re just pleasantly surprised and stunned at what’s there for them. It makes you really realize the value of what the (bureau) is doing,” he said. He said he’d encourage more people to get out and volunteer this year. “Because of what they do, they’re able to attract volunteers who want to be part of that at Christmas – but there’s always more help needed. Step forward and give it a try.” Those interested in finding out more about the variety of volunteer opportunities, or the ways to help the bureau through donations, can find more at www. burnabycommunityconnections. com.

Tis the scam season As the holiday season approaches – a time when people are typically feeling more generous – you may find that you’re getting more requests to donate to charities. And while there are many legitimate companies and charities calling you for fundraising purposes, it’s a good idea to take some precautions and be informed. The following tips can help protect you from telephone charitable scams: ◆ Ask for the information to be sent to you in writing before you commit to a donation. ◆ Ask the telemarketer to call you back and, in the meantime, call the charity yourself to confirm they are actually running a fundraising campaign. You can also visit the Canadian Revenue Agency website at www.cra-arc. to ensure that a charity is registered. ◆ Ask them to give you the charitable tax number of the charity. ◆ Remember that if you are told you have won a prize, you should never have to pay money to receive the prize. If you do decide to make a donation

over the phone, always keep a record of the date, the name, address and phone number of the person and charity you spoke to, the amount you donated and the method of payment. Always be cautious around giving your credit card information over the phone. Signs of a scam include high pressure tactics or threatening telemarketers who want you to make a donation immediately. If you believe you have been scammed, you can file a complaint with your local police and the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501 or at their website: common_contactus.html. Consumer Protection BC licenses and regulates certain telemarketers in the province, including companies calling on behalf of charities if they are taking payment over the phone. For more information about telemarketing in B.C., or to find out if the telemarketer calling you on behalf of a charity is licensed, please visit:

here’s a new program in the works that will help New Westminster seniors still living at home with some tasks, like light housekeeping, yard work and transportation. “One of the great strengths of the program is it’s community based and community driven. New

Westminster seniors and service providers can decide what works for them within the Better at Home structure,” said Mariam Larson, a local gerontologist hired to develop the program in New Westminster. Better At Home is a program funded by the

B.C. Health Ministry and delivered by the United Way. It’s designed to help low-income seniors get help with non-medical tasks. That could include friendly visits, help with groceries, minor home repairs, transportation, light yard work and housekeeping, Continued on page 27 ...

depending on the needs of the community. Volunteers typically deliver the services, and seniors pay based on their income. The fees go back into the program to support others who are using the services. The program is meant to help low-income seniors without taking business away from the private sector. Help with bathing and medication is not offered, as those tasks are taken care of by community health workers, and non-profit groups, such as Meals on Wheels in Burnaby and New Westminster, deliver precooked meals. “We know most seniors, if given the choice, would prefer to live independently as long as they can in their own homes, among friend and neighbours,” said Michael McKnight, president and CEO of the United Way Lower Mainland.

So far, 18 sites have been named for the Better At Home program, including New Westminster, and the total should reach 60 over the next year. Larson, who also coordinates Voices of Burnaby Seniors, is hoping Burnaby will be named in the next round of participating communities.

On Tuesday, Nov. 27 United Way was scheduled to host a community presentation about the program in New Westminster, after Burnaby NOW deadlines. At that meeting, Larson presented results from work she’s done, finding out what local seniors need and identifying a possible agency to deliver the program in New Westminster. That agency can then apply for a maximum grant of $100,000 per year to run the program. Larson said the program should be up and running in spring of 2013.

With the Better At Home program, seniors pay for help with tasks, based on their income. Photo contributed: Burnaby NOW

Which hybrid is the best for a long commute? CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi

Dear Tom and Ray: I drive a long way for work – about 310 miles round trip. Fortunately, I only have to do that eight or nine times each month, but it is still a long commute. I drive a 2008 Toyota Prius and average about 45 mpg going 70-75 mph and over the mountains to get there and back. I am considering the purchase of a replace-

ment car, and have looked at the new Prius, the plug-in Prius and other hybrid and electric cars. I haven’t found an electriconly car that has the range I need (even one way) for a reasonable price, and I am not sure if the additional cost for a plug-in hybrid really saves any money, as they provide electric-only operation for just the first 15 miles or so. My question is this: What is the best vehicle to maximize my fuel economy? I’m used to the Prius, but is there anything better out there that has a reasonable purchase price? Thanks for your help! – John RAY: If excellent mileage at a reasonable price is

what you’re looking for, you really can’t go wrong with another Prius, John. TOM: I’d skip the plugin Prius in your case; it’s more expensive. And while the plug-in system will improve your overall mileage, it’s designed to benefit you more if you do a lot of local driving, during which you can run primarily on the cheaper electric power. RAY: But since you’re driving 150 miles at a time, the regular Prius is going to get you 48 mpg on the highway (51 city), which is pretty darn good. And its reliability has been well demonstrated. TOM: There are alternatives now – many more

than when you bought your last Prius, in 2008. There are other Prius models of slightly different sizes; there’s an improved (but not as good as the Prius, in our opinion) Honda Civic hybrid. The well-reviewed Ford Fusion hybrid gets slightly lower highway mileage, but it’s larger, and you might find it more comfortable. Honda Accord is coming out with a hybrid version soon. And we found the Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima hybrids very impressive, too. RAY: There’s also the brand-new Ford CMax, which we haven’t reviewed yet, but which is a mini-minivan from

Learn about ‘EV’ technology

Learn more about electric vehicles

As electric vehicle technology evolves and more charging stations are installed throughout the province, the British Columbia Automobile Association (BCAA) has introduced its new electric vehicle initiative, “evolve.” The program aims to educate British Columbians about electric vehicle technology and provide automotive support to current and prospective electric vehicle owners. Earlier this month, former Vancouver Canucks captain Trevor Linden joined BCAA to launch “evolve” by offering free rides in an electric BCAA taxi while helping to uncover questions people have about electric vehicle technology. Research conducted by the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) indicates that 42 per cent of CAA members across Canada would consider an electric vehicle for their next vehicle purchase. According to BCAA’s latest member opinion survey, the main reason respondents considered the purchase of an electric vehicle is the price of gas. “Whether it’s to save money or reduce their carbon footprint, we recognize people are looking for more fuel efficient vehicle options and complete alternatives to gas-powered vehicles,” Ken Cousin, automotive specialist and associate vice-president of BCAA Road Assist, said in a press release. “But, electric vehicles are still new to British Columbians and we want to answer people’s questions and address common myths about electric vehicles to help give people a better

understanding of the technology and what it would be like to own and operate one.” BCAA is providing information about electric vehicle technology and addressing common questions at The website will also be updated with information related to purchasing, owning and maintaining an electric vehicle. As part of its electric vehicle initiative, BCAA’s automotive techs have been fully trained on electric vehicle technology and safety procedures to ensure they can properly assist electric vehicle drivers. Electric vehicles have also been added to BCAA’s fleet of vehicles. One electric vehicle will be used to provide roadside assistance within the Metro Vancouver area while another electric vehicle will be used for an employee car-share program. “Using electric vehicles in our business will allow us to collect driving data and feedback on electric vehicle issues from a diverse group of users,” said Cousin. “Our experience will also help us gain even more understanding of the service needs of these vehicles and what it’s like to own and operate an electric vehicle.” BCAA has also installed electric vehicle charging stations at its Burnaby Service Centre which electric vehicle owners – member or not – can use at no cost. BCAA is now one of a few hosts offering free electric vehicle charging stations within the Lower Mainland. Visit for more information about BCAA’s new initiative and watch a video of Linden addressing common questions.

South fourth for second time Tom Berridge sports editor

Burnaby South finished up its second straight appearance in the B.C. high school AAA boys’ soccer championships with a second fourth-place finish. The South Rebels gave a good account of themselves despite going down to defeat 2-0 to Fraser Valley champion and pre-tournament favourite Tamanawis in the bronzemedal final at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex-West on Saturday. On Friday, the Rebels were a whistle away from a championship final berth before eventual runnerup Terry Fox tied the contest 2-2 on a late penalty kick. The Port Coquitlam school went on to win the match in a shootout. “It was heartbreaking, it really was,” said South sweeper Tyler Huguet, who was called for a handball infraction in the box. “We wanted to be (in the final) so badly. This was the year. We all thought (it was).” But despite not coming away with a medal, Huguet said the boys were proud of their achievement over the last two seasons.

“We all wanted to win, but we’re all still happy. We had a great year. I’ve been playing since Grade 8 and this was the best season,” said Huguet. “We made it to fourth (place) for the second year in a row.” In the consolation final, the two teams played to a scoreless first-half draw. The first score came in the 70th minute after one of many Tamanawis counter attacks finally got through the otherwise solid South back line, springing Happy Pahal into the clear for what proved to be the game-winning goal. Pahal’s hard, well-taken strike beat South keeper Jason Sherle low to the left side. Ten minutes later, Tamanawis increased its lead with a header by Dilpreet Brar off a cross at the far post. Moments later, Sherle made a big stop and then gobbbled up a rebound to snuff out another Tamanawis scoring chance. South striker and Commissioner’s 16 pick Matt Shannik and Nick Leonard teamed up for a couple of late shots on goal that tested the Surrey keeper.

In the crossover semifinal, South led Terry Fox 2-0 before a late goal off a corner kick gave the opposition life. “It was difficult to pick up the pieces as a team. But we responded with so much courage. How they came back (in the Saturday final) defined them. It’s a good learning experience to go through that,” said South coach Robbie Puni. Shannik led South with eight goals during the tournament, but was pipped for the Golden Boot award by Keegan Lang of Dover Bay, who surpassed the South striker following a 9-1 victory over Correlieu in the final match for 13th place overall. Shannik potted five goals in a 6-0 win over Mount Baker on Thursday. He also tallied both goals in South’s 2-1 victory over Kelowna to top Pool B. Shannik and Nick Hernandez both had single goals in the semifinal loss to Terry Fox. Glenn Zheng added a marker against Mt. Baker and a second counter in the Rebels’ 3-1 win over Sardis. Tyus Batiste and Hernandez also scored in the pool match. Charles Best defeated Fox 1-0 in the championship final.

Volleyball Vikings ninth at junior provincials

Moscrop junior girls fifth at B.C.s Tom Berridge

sports editor

The Moscrop Panthers gutted out a fifth-place finish at the B.C. high school junior girls’ volleyball championships in South Delta last weekend. The district and Lower Mainland champions defeated Duchess Park of Prince George 25-17, 19-25, 15-8 to finish in the top five at the provincials. Panther setter Lauren Hum was named to the first all-star team. Pacific Academy from the Fraser Valley won the provincial banner. Moscrop won its pool with wins over Hatzic, Fraser Heights and Belmont to move on to the championship round. The Panthers defeated Riverside 15-9 in the tie-

breaker in the opening game of the championship flight. Moscrop then dropped a three-set match to Vancouver Island champion Cedar Secondary in the quarter-finals. Moscrop salvaged a top-eight finish following a 25-16, 23-25, 15-9 tiebreaker over Mennonite Educational Institute from Abbotsford. Power hitter Ernestine Tiamzon and Elianna Guo led the Panthers in kills. The 10-player Moscrop squad, including Liza Fesechko, Maya Kumagai, Viann Lee, Dayna Kwan, Natalie Yu, Marija Bojanic and Isabella Cheung shared in an otherwise successful season, including three tournament titles at South Delta, Douglas College and Burnett.

Burnaby North’s junior boys’ volleyball team placed ninth at the B.C. High School provincial championships held in Abbotsford this weekend. The Vikings came first in their pool with victories over Kelowna Secondary, the eventual silver medalists, Elgin Park and Delta. After a tough loss to Earl Marriott in the opening championship round, the team went on to defeat College Heights, Mount Boucherie and finally defeated No.3-ranked Reynolds 28-26, 25-22 to win the consolation playoffs and place ninth overall. “The team only had one loss at the provincials, but it was the wrong match,” said North coach Barton Lim of the first-round championship game. North came into the provincials bitten by the injury bug and was forced to play without their starting setter and team captain Erick

Chou and starting middle Ryan Li. Host Mennonite Educational Institute won the provincial banner. Individually, Ryan Wong placed second in the passing portion of the skills competition, while middle blocker Caleb Tam received honourable mention recognition in the allstar category. Last week, the North team won the Vancouver and District championships, defeating McRobert 3-0 in the semi-finals before sweeping StevestonLondon in three straight sets in the championship finals. Tam and power hitter Aaron Zhang were named to the V&D all-star team.

Burnaby athletes honoured with awards


Notre Dame back in first final in nearly 30 years Tom Berridge sports editor

The Notre Dame Jugglers are returning to its first Quadra Cup football final in nearly three decades. The Grade 8 high school football team advanced to next week’s B.C. high school provincial final at B.C. Place Stadium following a 30-0 win over threetime defending champion Lord Tweedsmuir. Steven Moretto, the hero of Hastings Little League’s run to the World Series last summer, rushed for nearly 100 yards and three touchdowns in the shutout win at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex-West on Tuesday. Mathew Manetta also scored a touchdown on the ground, as well as a second through the air. Joseph Santalucia added 55 rushing yards and Piereluigi Ferronato played tough defense for the Jugglers. “We’re very excit-

ed,” said Notre Dame coach Joe Garcea. “(Lord Tweedsmuir) has been a powerhouse the last four or five years.” Earlier this season, the Surrey team outscored Notre Dame 59-34 in a barnburner. Along the way, Notre Dame had important wins over its independent rivals, beating Vancouver College 16-6 and St. Thomas More 24-7 in back-to-back weeks for the first time in 15 years. The last time the Jugglers made it to a Grade 8 grid final was back in 1985 – the final year of a three-season championship banner run. “We have a great class. They’re amazing,” said Garcea. “We began back in May and just how much we’ve improved from day one has been profound.” The first-year Jugglers will face AA conference champion G.W. Graham in the Quadra Cup final at B.C. Place on Saturday, Dec. 1.
