Report: City hospital needs much more than a rebuild Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

It will take more than a new building to fix the problems at Burnaby Hospital, according to the 141-page report released Friday by the Burnaby Hospital community consultation committee. “To summarize, the committee heard loud and clear from many presenters that Burnaby Hospital scarcely has the capacity to serve current needs, let alone the RELATED STORY future needs of the hospital’s growth catchPoliticians ment area population,” react: NDP MLA the report stated.

The original buildings are now 60 years old, with aging electrical and plumbing systems. The hospital’s electrical system is such a concern, according to Dr. David Jones, spokesperson for the committee, that WorkSafe B.C. will not allow the hospital to light its annual Christmas tree due to concerns about the safety of the electrical system. Other issues include the lack of a sufficient number of sinks for staff and visitors to wash their hands – a key component in containing infections. Report Page 10

According to Sanyshyn, there are several poverty reduction plans in Canada, but the provincial government hasn’t been interested in one for B.C. Meanwhile, child poverty is painfully evident in Burnaby schools.

‘We absolutely need a new hospital’, Corrigan Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The recently released report on Burnaby Hospital blames the Fraser Health Authority for the hospital’s woes instead of the B.C. Health Ministry, according to local New Democrat MLA Kathy Corrigan. “That’s exactly what the report has done, it comes down hard on the Fraser Health Authority,” Corrigan said in an interview with the NOW. According to the Burnaby-Deer Lake MLA, the Liberals on the public consultation committee were planning to blame the Fraser Health Authority for the hospital’s problems instead of the provincial Health Ministry, which allocates funding for health authorities. The committee was tasked with gathering public input on what “I believe the should be done report stands with Burnaby Hospital, a seison its own. The mically unsound report is a good and aging facility plagued with report, it’s a C. difficile outreflection of breaks that have where Burnaby led to the deaths of some patients. Hospital is at the “We had a present time.” report 11 years ago that said HARRY BLOY Burnaby Hospital Burnaby MLA was in dire shape, seismicallyfragile and needs to be rebuilt, and we’ve had 11 years, and nothing has happened,” Corrigan said. “And their report reflects again that Burnaby Hospital has been neglected, and it has been starved in terms of programs and resources. I don’t care at this point about the petty politics that has gone on behind the scenes to score political points, but what I do care about is that the government gets on with it and builds a new hospital.” The “petty politics” Corrigan is referring to centre on leaked documents that suggest the committee was using the hospital issue and public consultation process as a means to boost the Liberals’ standing in Burnaby and de-seat Corrigan in the next election. The committee was led by Burnaby’s two Liberal MLAs – Harry Bloy and Richard Lee

– as well as citizen chair Pamela Gardner, an avid Liberal supporter. “The report is entirely tainted by the fact that it’s politically motivated and has political instruction attached as to what the outcome would be,” Corrigan said. Corrigan is also calling for a new hospital to be built, yet the 141-page report, released Friday morning, states that a new facility will not solve all of Burnaby Hospital’s problems. “We absolutely need a new hospital,” Corrigan said. “There’s a Fraser Health

document from 11 years ago, it says in no uncertain terms that the hospital needs to be torn down and rebuilt, and there’s been no action.” All criticism aside, Corrigan said the report was “not completely useless” because there were members of the public submitting their suggestions in good faith. Bloy, on the other hand, said the report was a great report, prepared by local citizens who volunteered for months. “They care about Burnaby. There was no special interest. They went out, and they

listened to the public. I believe the report stands on its own. The report is a good report, it’s a reflection of where Burnaby Hospital is at the present time. All of the citizens that worked on it, that volunteered on this report, want better health care,” he said. When asked about the leaked committee correspondence and the criticism that this was just a political exercise to curry favour with the public, Bloy responded by saying, Hospital Page 9

“underhousing” are also part of the problem in Burnaby. “We have 13, 14 people living in one- and two-bedroom apartments in the Edmonds corridor

The hospital, mostly made up of buildings 60 years old, is not earthquake safe and is in desperate need of renovations – if, indeed it is capable of being renovated. But none of this is news. Surely, the province and Fraser Health were aware of this when they reviewed plans for new hospitals and other hospital upgrades in the region. In June, then-health minister Michael de Jong announced a $750-million redevelopment of Royal Columbian Hospital. Just before that, Premier Christy Clark announced a huge upgrade

and renovation for St. Paul’s Hospital. But all Burnaby Hospital got was a community consultation committee with political baggage. Will the province and Fraser Health pledge to help heal our ailing hospital? Will the Liberal MLAs who say the report was not about politics but about fixing health care in the city, promise to rebuild the hospital? Or, for that matter, will the NDP MLAs and Adrian Dix jump on the promise wagon and steal the show? We eagerly await the next chapter.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Oil spill possibility is worrisome

Dear Editor:

Three words, beautiful British Columbia, are written on every license plate in the Province. This description is a testament to the extensive natural beauty that can be found in every corner of British Columbia. I believe that the government should do everything in its power to protect this diverse environment, and that means not allowing the Northern Gateway pipeline to be constructed. I believe that a pipeline would be a huge risk to the North Coast and northern interior of the province, and I would like the B.C. government to oppose it, because the pipe line would travel over

more than 1,000 streams and rivers, some of which are salmon-bearing. Salmon fishing has provided me with some amazing experiences in B.C., and the impact of an oil spill in such a delicate ecosystem would be absolutely detrimental for the health of not only salmon populations, but all species in the area. I think Enbridge is also a bad choice for B.C., and with almost 610 recorded spills between 1999 and 2008, it would just be a matter of time before Northern Gateway would leak some oil into the environment. I have been to Alaska and seen the pelts of dead sea otters, dead birds and seals affected by the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill.

Even when I went in 2009, oil was still an issue in the area, and it is estimated to take up to 30 years to fully clean the spill. As a resident of this province, I fear the potential impact of a large scale oil spill that the pipeline could potentially cause.

Good staff, bad problems

Dear Editor:

MLA Harry Bloy’s report regarding Burnaby Hospital will keep discussions going for some time to come. Without having read it, I get the gist so far: let’s spend lots and lots of taxpayer money! Somebody will vote for the politician who makes the wildest demands. Sure, sooner or later it may become cheaper to re-build instead of adding one more awkward new wing. Being told that the system can no longer accomodate the extra electricity needed for a Christmas tree, makes that point. As a very recent guest at the facilities, I have suggestions that I find rather embarassing to pass on in such a public manner. Especially because one of the incidents involves one of my favourite nurses who was always helpful and cheerful to boot. (Had she not been that, I might have complained and, undoubtedly, someone would have tried to identify the staff involved.) But, I reluctantly decided to mention it anyway as it may, just may, do some good. One morning, said nurse kicked over

a urinal under my bed. By the time my wife visited late that same afternoon the mess had noticably just dried up on the floor and at least 20 people had to have walked through it without addressing what, I would have assumed to be, a very, very basic concern in a hospital! I will spare you the details of a dirty toilet. It was particularly gross because it was not taken care of by the staff for hours, even though one of the nurses was there when the accident happened and, besides myself, one other patient drew it to the attention of staff. I am sure you will agree, that it would not cost a penny extra to pull a cleaner out of their routine and let them take care of accidents or emergencies. That is common practice in grocery stores when a customer breaks a ketchup bottle. But not in a hospital? Breakfast arrives and the patient better know how to fend for himself if at all interested in personal hygene and washing up a little before touching the food. A rather tall order in my case, being unable to take a trip to the washroom unassisted. Even when assisted it was a major undertaking. Did this hospital not have a problem with infections? Should I still wonder why? Oh, yes … one day two young ladies went from bed to bed to enquire how often patients had brushed their teeth during preceding days. Obviously there is (wo)manpower, providing management finds something to do for them that seems important. On a more pleasant note, all staff was accommodating, polite and exceptionally cheerful. It would have delighted me no end had I been able to just post the preceding sentence! Ziggy Eckardt, Burnaby

Women: Time for action continued from page 6

services, counselling and outreach programs connected to the Ending Violence Association of B.C. are having the same problem. There just isn’t enough funding in place to respond. Community services make a huge difference every day. It is simply wrong when they are prevented from providing help and support that can save lives. In B.C., high-profile tragedies bring a flurry

of activity and announcements related to violence against women and children. But what’s needed is a continuing, well-planned and adequately funded set of supports and prevention services shaped by communities. British Columbians need to hear from leaders at all levels of government about their specific plans to address violence against woman and children. A provincial election is coming.

Please make your voice heard. We will continue to remember and honour those who have fallen to violence. But it is time for action.

‘Red Nose’ campaign kicks off with busy weekend With the calendar turning to December and holiday party season in full swing, Operation Red Nose kicked off last Friday to good numbers in Burnaby and New Westminster. Operation Red Nose, which began in Quebec in 1984, sees volunteers in teams of three pick you up and drive you and your vehicle home. This is the first year the service has been offered in Burnaby and New Westminster. Chris Wilson is the local organizer who has seen the program grow in the Tri-Cities and helped bring it to Burnaby and New Westminster. “Our first night ever in Burnaby delivered 14 rides and New West had six,” said Wilson. “We had 53 volunteers giving up their Friday or Saturday night to make sure people got home safely. There’s a strong demand for the service, so we’re still looking for more volunteers.” Overall for the TriCities, Burnaby and New Westminster, Wilson said volunteers delivered 84 rides, drove 2,687 kilometres and organizers collected $3,015 in donations during the first weekend. That’s almost double last year’s numbers of 40 rides, 1,338 kilometres driven and $1,455 in donations collected. “We’re very excited about the first week’s numbers and are looking forward to the rest of the campaign,” said Wilson. The free service will be available for the rest of the month on these days: Dec. 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22 and 31. Anybody who wishes to volunteer in Burnaby, New West or the Tri-Cities is asked to email orn@ Volunteers come from all walks of life and in the past, have included sitting mayors and councillors from the Tri-Cities. “We have everyone from 19-year-olds to 78year-olds and everyone in between,” said Wilson. “It’s a lot of fun, you meet some great people, and you have the satisfaction of getting people home

Mayor looks back on 2012 in inaugural address Collaboration is key to city success, says Corrigan Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Public participation is key to the City of Burnaby’s success, Mayor Derek Corrigan said in his inaugural address at the Dec. 3 council meeting. “Whenever Burnaby embarks on a new policy, strategy or land-use plan, to ensure the plan is citizen-driven, we incorporate consultation that will involve and engage everyone in our uniquely diverse community in a meaningful and effective process,” he said. “It is not the fastest way to get things done, but it’s the best way – and it serves our city and citizens well,” he added. As an example of the city’s collaborative efforts, Corrigan mentioned the city’s social sustainability strategy, which won a 2012 Planning Excellence Award from the Canadian

Institute of Planners. Another example of a collaborative success is Burnaby’s waterways, he added, pointing out that chum salmon have returned to the city in record numbers this year, including in Still and Buckingham creeks, which have not had salmon for more than 40 years. Corrigan’s speech, which was delivered over the first half-hour of the council meeting, touched on the accomplishments of city departments and initiatives during the past year. The city is currently revamping its transportation plan, he said, which will be “an integral part of our sustainability strategy and updated Official Community Plan.” Traffic changes in North Burnaby, to manage vehicles travelling to and from Vancouver, include measures that are a first for the city, he said, including the 40-km/hr speed limit for neighbourhood roads. In the area of traffic safety, the city is also participating in Operation Red

Hospital: Lee backs report continued from page 3

“Look at the report. The report is a very good report that was produced by volunteers, saying the state of the hospital. I stand by the report that went out.” Lee said the report was a reflection of what the committee members have heard in public meetings in Burnaby and East Vancouver. “I think it’s a very good report and a very good summary,” he said. As for Corrigan’s call for a new hospital, Lee said he thinks that decision should be left to the Health Ministry and the Fraser Health Authority. “I think the Fraser Health Authority will take this citizens’ report into consideration, and the Fraser Health Authority will reflect that in their long-term process,” he said.

Regarding the committee’s leaked emails, Lee said some members were overly enthusiastic about the project. Much of the hospital was built 60 years ago. The report, which contained statements and presentations from Burnaby residents, Burnaby Hospital doctors and nurses, as well as other experts and stakeholders, gave examples of many of the problems plaguing the departments at the hospital. The committee conducted its public consultations over the summer, and the report was released to Fraser Health and the Health Ministry. Fraser Health is now working on a master plan for the possible expansion or replacement of the hospital. - With files from Janaya Fuller-Evans

They’re hanging up their aprons Popular Heights restaurant – the Gilmore – closes after 21 years of dishing up homemade, affordable meals


or more than 21 years, Cecilia and Stephen Lee have been serving homemade, healthy and affordable comfort food at 4015 East Hastings St. in the Heights, but come Tuesday, Dec. 11, owners Cecilia and Stephen Lee will cook their last meals as they head off into retirement. “We just decided that it was time,” said Cecilia. “We’ve been here for 21 ON MY BEAT years and we do Alfie still live in the community and we just thought it was time. We are so thankful for the ongoing support from the community. ... Things have moved so fast over the past few months. We didn’t think we’d be saying goodbye so soon.” While Cecilia is the face of the dining room, Stephen was the man who made magic happen in the kitchen. Daughters Ivy and Stella have also been fixtures at the eatery, with Ivy helping her dad in the kitchen and Stella helping in the front room. “We’re sad, but it’s not bittersweet,” said Stella, now firmly established in her chosen career as a teacher. “I’ve been here since I was eight and what I think I’ll always remember is all my friends used to have their birthday parties at McDonald’s, but all of (mine and Ivy’s) birthday parties were here. I remember doing my homework here and helping out. It’s a part of us, it’s a part of who we are.” Stella said the decision to close up shop came from her parents. “A couple of months ago, my mom started talking about it and once we realized they were serious, we just wanted to support them in their decision and make it easier for them to retire.” Even as Stella is talking wistfully about her memories of the Gilmore, longtime customer Ray Hustad comes up to say goodbye. “I’ve been coming since this place opened,” he said. “I used to deliver the mail to this place and since it was a part of my route, I’d come here for lunch. … My route’s changed, but I still come here for lunch.” “Now I remember you,” said Stella. “I recognized the face, but it wasn’t until you said you delivered our mail that I remembered who you were.” Hustad said he’ll miss the $5.95 lunch specials at the Gilmore almost as much

I see how hard they worked, and that’s how hard I’ve worked at all my jobs,” said Ivy. The Lees have helped their landlords find a new tenant, but after Dec. 11, the restaurant will undergo a major renovation before it is scheduled to reopen as a different, albeit more modern, restaurant. “We’ll have a lot of friends come here to say goodbye,” said Cecilia. “We’re sad that we won’t be able to say a proper farewell to the customers who won’t have a chance to come in here before we leave. I don’t think there are words to fully express the gratitude and appreciation we have for our customers.” The Gilmore Restaurant is at 4015 East Hastings St. and is open seven days a week, from 9 a.m. for breakfast, lunch and dinner, until Dec. 11.

Burnaby to make Metro Vancouver Garbage Disposal Fees Visible to Taxpayers In Burnaby, garbage is picked up by the City, but is disposed of by Metro Vancouver. Disposal (tipping) fees are set by Metro Vancouver. The City of Burnaby has no control over these charges, which have increased 50 per cent since 2008 and are projected by Metro Vancouver to increase an additional 41 per cent over the next four years. Because the City cannot control these increases – and in order to ensure these Metro Vancouver fees are visible to Burnaby residents separate from their City residential tax bill – beginning in 2013, these costs will appear as a separate item on your utility bill. This shift will not change the total dollar amount paid by Burnaby citizens to Metro Vancouver for garbage disposal. It will, however, make the costs visible to taxpayers and will enable citizens to save money by recycling more and disposing of less garbage. Following the principle of “use more, pay more; use less pay less,” your garbage disposal fees will be based on the size of your toter. There will be no change to recycling and green waste. 2013 Residential Garbage Toter Disposal Fees Toter

Size (litre)


Small Default Medium Large

120 180 240 360

$25 $75 $205 $385

A five per cent discount will be applied to the fee if it is paid on or before March 15, 2013.

If you would like to change the size of your toter, you can do so without charge between January 1, 2013, and March 15, 2013, by calling the City’s Engineering Department at 604.294.7460 or by emailing After this time, a $50 service fee will be charged for toter exchange.

“Burnaby Council has made a long-term commitment to environmental sustainability and has joined other municipalities in supporting the regional target of 70 per cent waste diversion from the landfill by 2015. Though the City has initiated several waste diversion programs, garbage volumes have not decreased. The costs of disposing of this garbage are increasing; Metro Vancouver, which sets these disposal fees, has told the City these fees are expected to rise by 41 per cent over the next four years. Beginning in March, Burnaby citizens will be able to see these costs on their utility bill and will have a new opportunity to save money by reducing the amount of garbage they produce.” Mayor Derek Corrigan

Winter Driving Tips

The mention of childhood winters likely evokes fond memories of sledding down snow!covered mountains or building the block’s best snowman! However, as adults we often have a slightly different view of this beautiful but sometimes challenging sea! son. Most winter woes seem to be associ! ated with driving through the white stuff. A few simple steps taken while the leaves are still on the trees can often minimize the chal! lenges that accompany the onset of winter: Winterize Your Vehicle: Perform a mainte! nance check!up on all your vehicles. From your brakes to your wipers, all systems should be repaired or replaced if they are not in optimal condition. Check fluid levels and top up as required. Check Your Tires: The condition of your vehi! cle’s tires is especially important during win! ter. Consider using snow tires and remem! ber that all!season tires should only be used for light snowfall. Check with your insurance broker to confirm your coverage with or without snow tires. Check your tire pressure as it decreases in colder weather. Get a Driving Kit: Prepare a winter driving kit for all vehicles. Include in your kit a shovel, a bag of sand, booster cables, chains, flares or emergency lights, first aid kit, flashlight and batteries, blanket, extra clothing and footwear, water and a few non!perishable food items.

Plan Ahead: Plan your route and allow yourself extra time. Trust the Weatherman: Check weather/road reports prior to heading out. If possible wait for conditions to improve. Slow Down: An oldie but a goodie! Dad’s Two Second Rule: Did your Dad re! mind you of the two second rule every time you borrowed the car? In case the details have become a bit fuzzy over the years, this is how it works. 1) Pick a marker on the road ahead such as a road sign. 2) When the rear of the vehicle ahead of you passes that sign, start counting. 3) You should be able to count slowly “one one!thousand, two one! thousand” before the front of your vehicle reaches the same marker. In winter driving conditions, it takes vehicles even longer to stop. So, it is wise to allow even more space between vehicles at this time of year. See and Be Seen: Winter driving conditions often result in poor visibility. Keep your lights clean!

Bureau campaign continues The giving spirit

When it comes to kids and Christmas, it’s all about the toys. For local low-income families, the Burnaby Christmas Bureau has been helping make sure all kids have something under the tree for more than three decades. Through November and December each year, the bureau accepts financial and toy donations to help reach their annual campaign goals. Recent years have seen an upswing in the number of people turning to the bureau to help; at the same time, donations have dropped off, as people throughout the community are challenged to make ends meet in the tough economy. This year, the group needs to bring in $210,000 to help all of the families who are expected to register with them. So far, they’ve made it to about $80,000 - with less than a month to go, there’s more than $100,000 still needed. They also accept donations of new unwrapped toys to stock the shelves in their toy room, where families are able to come prior to Christmas to find a gift for their children. To make it easier to find donation ideas - particularly for older children and tweens, who are often hard to shop for - the bureau has released a list of gift ideas by age. See the following pages for that list. To help out with a financial donation, or to learn more about toy drop-off location, see

Apple Stuffed Pork Chops 4 servings

1 large Italian sausage chopped 1 onion diced 1 apple chopped


From David Starr, a Burnaby school principal and published author, courtesy of his mother, Yvonne Starr.

3/4 cup apple cider vinegar 1/2 tbsp fennel seeds 2 slices bread toasted and cubed 1 tbsp grainy mustard 1 tbsp olive oil 4 pork chops at least one and a half inches thick salt and pepper

Brown sausage in a pan over medium high heat. Add onions, cover with a lid, cook for 5 mins until onion has softened. Add apple, a quarter cup of the cider vinegar, and the fennel seeds, and let simmer until the apple has softened. Add bread and stir until moistened and absorbed the liquid. Cut a deep pocket into the side of each pork chop and stuff with apple filling. Reserve any leftover stuffing. Place a large pan over high heat and add olive oil. When hot, season the chops with salt and pepper and sear on each side for 3 mins. Cover the pan with a lid, turn the heat to low and cook for another 10 mins. Remove chops and rest on a plate. Reheat the pan and deglaze it with remaining half cup of cider vinegar, scraping any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Let it boil and reduce until thickened. Stir in grainy mustard and pour over chops before serving.

Nana Violet’s Christmas trifle (courtesy of Yvonne Starr)

This is a very simple Christmas desert recipe that has been in the family for at least seventy years. It is very easy, very tasty and the perfect dessert to have after turkey. Trifle is a very common English dessert.The exact origins of this particular recipe are now clouded by time but my mother Yvonne remembers her mother Violet making it for her when she was a little girl in Falmouth, England at the end of the Second World War. It was a little bit of comfort in a very difficult time for Britain, and this recipe reflects the austerity of the time. During WWII in England, most food, especially imported foods, were in short supply well into the 1950’s, and people made do with canned or powdered products and produce they could obtain locally. For example, canned fruit was used simply because seasonal fresh fruit at Christmas time was not continued next page

available in those days. Additionally if spongecake wasn’t available, my grandmother would use whatever cake she had on hand. Instructions: In the bottom of a large glass serving bowl put: 3 cups of cubed sponge cake spread with strawberry jam- or jelly rolls cut into rounds. Cover the sponge cake or jelly rolls with sherry (Bristol Cream if you have it) Don’t be shy - use as much as you like. Sherry-free trifle is, of course, an option as well - though why you’d leave it out is beyond my mother. Cover the sponge cake/sherry mixture with a large can of fruit salad (no juice).You may also use fresh strawberries and other cut up fresh fruit of your choice. In a separate bowl make a red jello and before the jello sets pour it over the spongecake/Sherry/fruit mix in the glass bowl. Let the mixture cool and set. While it’s setting you will make two cups of custard in a separate bowl. Once the custard is made pour it over the spongecake/sherry/fruit/jello mix. Put the trifle in the fridge to cool. Once cool cover with whipped cream. Shaved chocolate and a few candied cherries on top make a nice finishing statement. Voila! Nana’s trifle.

Peggy’s Chicken



Great as an appetizer using chicken drummettes or wings or as a main course using chicken breasts. Freezes and reheats in the microwave beautifully. Make lots, they don’t last! Hopefully NOW readers will enjoy it as much as we do.

3 lbs chicken drumettes, wings or boneless skinless chicken breasts 1 beaten egg 1 cup flour oil for frying Sauce 3 tbsp soy sauce 3 tbsp water 1 cup white sugar 1/2 cup vinegar 1/2 tsp salt Dip 1/2 the chicken in the egg, then the flour.

Holiday shopping made easy By Abbas Virji The Heights Contributor

Christmas time has always been an enjoyable time of the year for me, especially because of the vibrant atmosphere, themed display, and all the fun festivities that the holiday season brings. There is much reason to celebrate, and a variety of holidays make December a very lively month. Whether it is Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanzaa that you may be celebrating, the winter months are full of festive celebrations. But the holiday season can also be a busy time for everyone. Whether you are decorating the house, or buying that special something for your loved ones, there seems to be no shortage of places to be and things to do. With so many social commitments and things to cross off what seems to be a never-ending list of todos, convenience is of the utmost importance. That is where your Heights merchants come in. With more than 350 merchants to serve you, there is no shortage of variety to find everything you may need. Shopping in the Heights is easy and convenient. With more than 20 free public parking lots and ample street parking, it’s easy to pop in to your favourite merchant and pick up a quick ingredient for your holiday meal or stay a while and pick up some gifts. If the big family dinner is at your home this year, be sure to place your order with one of your Heights-

based butchers, delis or fish markets soon to avoid missing out. No holiday meal is complete without appetizers, side dishes and sweet treats, and you can find all of this right here in the Heights. Whether you need ingredients to make your traditional stuffing or are looking for ready-to-serve appetizers, your Heights merchants offer it all. If you still have a few gifts to find, your Heights merchants have you covered. From spa and esthetic services to specialty schools, fashion to health and wellness, and crafting to bookstores, there really is something for everyone on your list. For a complete list of our merchants, visit our online merchant directory at www.burnabyheights. com. To make your holiday shopping even more enjoyable, a special guest from the North Pole and carolers will be visiting Heights merchants and shoppers during the next two Saturdays, Dec. 8 and 15, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. That, plus the twinkling lights along Hastings Street, makes the Heights a special place to be during the holiday season. On behalf of your Heights merchants, we wish you and your family a happy holiday season and a prosperous 2013! Abbas Virji was a marketing and events assistant summer student with the Heights Merchants Association.

Gloo Studios receives award By Janaya Fuller-Evans The Heights Reporter

Gloo Studios may be best known for its visual effects on College Humour videos such as The Tron Lebowski, Die Hardly Working and The End of the World parody. But the Burnaby Heights studio has been working on many other projects since it opened, as well – Gloo Studios works on 20 to 30 project per month, according to president Paul Lowey. “It’s not uncommon at Gloo Studios to have a lot going on,” he says, adding the studio has just finished visual FX for a music video for The Pack A.D., 3-D animation on a video for the Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan, work on two mini documentaries for the Calgary Stampede, and special FX for a Cartoon Network show airing in February, Incredible Crew. “It’s a kids’ show, really goofy and fun, and there’s some really neat stuff that we did on it,” Lowey. “I can’t wait to see it.” Lowey started the studio in the Heights almost four years

ago with Mike Ritchie, who is the director of visual FX, and Jason Hujber, the director of photography. “We started a few years ago, basically because it was a tough time for the industry,” Lowey says. “It was kind of out of a necessity to survive that we started Gloo Studios and created something that we could pay ourselves with.” All three have worked in film production for a long time, he says. “This just gave us our forced kick in the pants we needed to get us into doing our own thing,” he adds. They started in a smaller space in the neighbourhood when they first opened, initially coming to the Heights because of the reasonable rents and good facility. “When we needed to expand, it wasn’t even a consideration to look outside the Heights,” Lowey says. “The community is great,” he adds. “I love being able to be a part of a community like this, that cares about one another and wants to see one another succeed.” Continued on page 25 ...

... Continued from page 24 Lowey recently became vice-president of the Heights Merchants Association, which fits in well with his passion, working to help other businesses, he says. He works as a producer on the corporate and business videos for Gloo Studios, Lowey explains. He has been making movies since he was a teenager. “I was one of those kids in high school with the video camera all the time and making the films,” Lowey says. “My weekends weren’t going out to party or anything – my weekends were finding friends to get together and make a movie.” He worked in production on

televisions shows for History Television, Discovery, CBC and CTV after he dropped out of university, where he had been studying film production, Lowey says, and eventually went to Calgary to work on a crime documentary. “It was in Calgary, when that crime show wrapped up, that I started working on corporate videos,” he adds. “I kind of found my calling, working with other businesses.” Gloo Studios now has about 12 employees, though it had about 16 people in the summer, Lowey says. While Lowey is prepared for the studio to grow, he and his partners want to do so strategically and carefully, he says.

“We take every new step forward very safely. We’re not anxious to become a big entity,” he says. “We know that inevitably, the company’s going to grow, and that’s just a sign of success, that the company would grow and get bigger, and we have to grow and adapt with that, too.” Gloo Studios’ cautious efforts were rewarded recently when the studio received a Burnaby Business Excellence Award in the Entrepreneurial Spirit category. The company was also up for Small Business of the Year, but West Pacific Consulting Group won in that category. “I think it was an honour to be put into that category - I did not think we were ready for it,”

Lowey says. “We’re young still. There’s a lot of growth that we still can do, even in the small business realm.” As for the Entrepreneurial Spirit Award, it made him reflect and acknowledge the company’s achievements, he says. “After taking home the award, you start to look at everything you have been doing, and you can build a level of appreciation for what it actually took to get the company here, and it wasn’t just about a couple of good clients and a lot of luck. It was a lot of strategy,” Lowey says. To see samples of the videos Gloo Studio has worked on and the services the company offers, go to

Scotiabank recognized for community spirit By Janaya Fuller-Evans The Heights Reporter

Scotiabank was recently recognized for its work in communities such as the Heights with a Burnaby Business Excellence Award in the Burnaby Community Spirit category. The bank’s community spirit reflects the spirit of the businesses and residents in the Heights and North Burnaby overall, according to a Scotiabank manager. Andrew Porter, who has been manager at the North Burnaby branch for nearly two years, previously managed the Heights

branch for five years, and says both neighbourhoods have a strong sense of community. “People are just happy to live there, happy to be part of that community, it’s just got a real family type of feel to it and that’s something I’ve really enjoyed about both of these locations, is how much people love where they live, love the community that they’re in – they’re so proud to be from Burnaby – and just how well they support one another,” he says. The Heights Merchants Association does excellent work in the community, he adds.

Porter says he has enjoyed working in both neighbourhoods. “I chose to come down to this location for a change of scenery but (I’m) still able to keep all of my contacts and all the community involvement that I do, just because I enjoy it so much,” he says. Community involvement is a big priority for Scotiabank, throughout Burnaby and in other places throughout the world, he adds. “We are really focused on giving back to the communities we deal in,” he says. “We have a Bright Future program, where we get involved in functions that

are near and dear to us and to our customers.” In fact, Scotiabank’s Bright Future program is involved in communities in about 30 countries overall. In Canada, the focus is on areas such as education, health, social services, arts and culture, and the employee-based community programs. The Team Scotia Community Program matches donations raised by teams of five or more employees, up to $5,000. The bank also donates money to organizations where employees

are active volunteers. Porter was at the Burnaby Business Excellence Awards last month when Scotiabank was honoured for its efforts, he says. “It was excellent,” he says, “a fantastic evening.” The 12th annual awards were a joint initiative between the board and the City of Burnaby. “The Board of Trade and the city did a fantastic job of hosting, and we were really excited about winning,” Porter says. Scotiabank has eight branches in Burnaby, including the Heights branch at 4001 Hastings St.

Be an ‘angel’ this Christmas with bureau Take part in an Angel Project at city businesses to help with annual toy campaign for kids Christina Myers staff reporter

As of today, there’s fewer than three weeks till Christmas arrives. As the clock counts down, the urgency increases for the Burnaby Christmas Bureau as they work to raise funds and collect toy donations to help low-income city families for the holidays. Organizers say one easy way for the public to get involved in these last few weeks is by taking part in the Angel Project program. The program sees groups or businesses hang Angel Cards on a tree or displayed on a wall; each card has the gender and age of a typical child registered with the bureau listed on it. Staff and visitors can then choose a card, purchase a gift that fits the description on the card and return the gift to that location. The toy donations are then rounded up and brought to the bureau, where they’ll ultimately get picked up by parents and make their way under a tree for a child on Christmas Day. Kristen Robb with the bureau notes that there are a number of locations

a food hamper before Christmas. Recent around the city that have Angel Cards years have seen a jump in the number of on display now, including: all Burnaby seniors being helped by the bureau. Scotiabank locations, Staccato Studios at 4663 E. Hastings, G & F Financial at 105 – 4191 Hastings, and CIBC at 4101 E. Hastings.

Live mindfully during the holidays HEALTHWISE

Dr. Davidicus Wong


t the end of It’s a Wonderful Life, Zuzu Bailey says, “Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings!” These days, every time a Christmas song is played, some grownups grit their teeth. Though this is a season of celebration, for many, it comes with sadness and stress. We can easily get caught up in consumerism, cynicism, stress and gloom. What can we do to cope with Christmas and begin a New Year healthy and hopeful? We have to psyche ourselves up. The attitudes we adopt now will influence our mental and physical wellbeing over

Season: Slow down and truly enjoy the holidays continued from page 30

the needs and happiness of the other person, and with each gift they open, appreciate the care that went into it. No one wraps a present as lovingly as my sister. Unwrapping gifts from Auntie Lisa has become one of our favourite family rituals. Of course, we don’t get everything we want for Christmas. Many families cannot afford the luxuries advertised in flyers and commercials. Many people will be alone or missing loved ones. The holidays may come just when some are coping with bad news or health concerns. Since my mom’s passing, there are moments each Christmas season when I don’t feel much like celebrating and instead miss her presence in our lives. Remembering Christmases past can stir up a bittersweet mix of

feelings. At Christmastime, as with any other point in our lives, we experience a fleeting mix of what we have, what we once had and what we want. We each have to accept our circumstances, acknowledge the gifts of the past and most importantly for the moment, be present and appreciate what we have today. Let us resolve to be as present as possible, loving the good that we have and connecting with those in our lives this day. May we be more mindful of all that we do and say, eat and drink this season. Our experiences today will be tomorrow’s memories. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a family physician at the PrimeCare Medical Centre. His Healthwise column appears regularly in this paper.

BOBCATS SO TIGHT BAND Larry Wright/burnaby now

Winter food: EBO Restaurant and Delta Burnaby executive chef Dan Craig and food and beverage services manager Richard Wischnewski.

EBO is the place to be THE DISH


Alfie Lau

ith many people counting down anxiously to Christmas and the requisite Christmas meals, why wait for a great meal when you can try out the great new seasonal menu at EBO Restaurant in the Delta Burnaby Hotel and Conference Centre? Executive chef Dan Craig has been working with new food and beverage services manager Richard Wischnewski and the Delta Burnaby’s director of sales and marketing, Sebastien Theriault, to create a plethora of holiday dining options that can only mean good news for discerning Burnaby diners. Running until Dec. 23, the fresh and festive threecourse dinner for $45 per person will be on offer nightly from 5:30 p.m. For those who love lunch instead, the festive lunch buffet for $28 per person runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily (excluding weekends) from Dec. 3 to 21. But the fun doesn’t stop there, as Christmas sees EBO hosting a Christmas Eve and Night buffet for $49 per person, with seating times at 5, 5:30, 7:30 and 8 p.m.

On Christmas Day, brunch is $42 per person, with seating times at 11 and 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 and 2 p.m. If you’re not full by then, New Year’s Eve will feature a tapas buffet for $75 per person, seating at 5:30 p.m., and the next day will feature a $42 New Year’s brunch, with seating times from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. “It’s certainly an ambitious plan,” said Wischnewski. “But chef (Dan Craig) and I have such a great working relationship that we’re very confident that we can continue to exceed our customers’ expectations.” Nodding approvingly is Delta Burnaby general manager Eda Koot, who is happy to let Wischnewski, Theriault and Craig do their things. “I’m very lucky to have such a talented chef like Dan,” said Koot. “His cooking is unparalleled, but it’s also his leadership qualities. He wants to train and inspire the people in his kitchen. There’s such a strong respect in his kitchen and they are creating some unbelievable dishes. ... I’m very comfortable with what Dan, Richard and Sebastien are doing.” When the Burnaby NOW sat down recently with the EBO and Delta Burnaby team, we were wowed by the nuanced food selections, wine pairings and overall service. As Koot and Theriault

entertained us with stories, Wischnewski was working a crowded dining room and Craig was cooking up a storm. We started with the appetizer before the appetizer, the delectable amuse bouche of puffed parmesan cracker, longanisa sausage and red pepper and it was a great way to start the meal, especially since Wischnewski also came with the Purple Villa martini, featuring raspberry vodka, cranberry juice, lime juice and a little champagne to give it that extra kick. With martinis in hand, we could then dig into our appetizers, which started with a divinely-plated house-cured schinkenspeck, cornichons and grain mustard; torchon of foie gras; cranberry toast, compressed pear and fig jam. Perhaps even more memorable is this dish is served on wood reclaimed from an old wine barrel. The lean pork schinkenspeck was the star, while the foie gras was a very close second. The Delta recently hosted an event where local chefs shared ideas on how to serve foie gras and Craig has incorporated those lessons into his menu. Our next three appetizer dishes show off Craig’s innovative touch with locally sourced ingredients. I couldn’t get enough of Dine Page 34

Taste: EBO offers delectable items continued from page 33

the albacore tuna and dungeness crab, served with avocado and compressed watermelon, while Theriault is licking his lips with the carpaccio of Wagyu beef, enoki mushrooms, compressed pear and light horseradish. It’s not just protein that Craig excels at presenting, as the surprise of these dishes is the poached beetroot, featuring both yellow and red beets, served with goat’s pride Camembert cheese, pinenut butter and granola and yuzu fruit. “You usually only get

yellow beets in the fall,” said Wischnewski, “They really are a treat.” “We’re always looking at ways to make this more than just a hotel restaurant,” said Koot. “We want to be known as a local restaurant serving the best fine dining in the city.” Craig is certainly doing his part and there’s no better evidence than our main course, a 22-ounce 28-day dry-aged rib steak, served with several delectable sides, including orzo and aged cheddar macaroni and cheese, confit potatoes, asparagus and

peppercorn sauce. The steak is exquisite, literally melting in our mouths, but the sides are almost as good. Koot has the roast halibut, served with a Chanterelle mushroom risotto and lobster emulsion, and it’s so good that she doesn’t even share it with the steak-eating men of the table.

Holiday gardening tips GREEN SCENE Anne Marrison

If you don’t have a cooler room for your plant, just do extra misting from the outset. Putting a Christmas cactus by an open window also helps because outside air is much more humid than warm house air.

Question I have an Xmas cactus that is on my front porch facing east. It is covered in heavy bud, but each year when I bring it into the house all the buds fall off. How can I save the buds so it will flower? Madeleine McTaggart by email

Question I have an indoor azalea that I planted outside for the summer. What is the procedure for bringing it inside and making it flower? Christine, by email

Answer Your Christmas cactus is suffering from low humidity in your house and the buds fall because they dry out. If you have a cooler room to put it in and can mist it once a day with plain water the buds will hold better. Once your Christmas cactus begins flowering, you can bring it into a warmer area where you should mist it twice a day to give it extra humidity. If the buds still fall, increase the number of times you do the misting.

Answer Indoor azaleas don’t tolerate frost so it should be brought inside immediately and potted up in some acidic soil. This should be half to one-third peat plus a handful of perlite or grit. The reason indoor azaleas drop buds and leaves is because regular house temperatures are too hot, the air is too dry and people don’t usually water and mist them enough. These azaleas also need bright light but not sunshine.

A cool basement or unheated porch would be a good place for it. The soil should be kept moist but not swampy and fed with an acidic fertilizer once or twice a month. In a cool spot, daily misting might be enough. Keeping it outside for summer is a good first step towards flowering. But last year’s bloom may have been forced and, if so, the plant could be exhausted and need to rest for a year. Young shrubs often focus on stem and leaf growth. Just prune for shape where needed. My parents kept a pink-flowered indoor azalea for years in an unheated, cool and drafty storage area. They didn’t fuss over it. But conditions resembled the frost-free woodlands where these azaleas originated. It grew huge and bloomed every year. Anne Marrison is happy to answer gardening questions.

The B.C. government, ICBC and police to launch December CounterAttack campaign

The B.C. government, police and ICBC will mark the 35th anniversary of the CounterAttack program with the launch of the December impaired driving campaign. While attitudes towards drinking and driving have changed considerably over the past 35 years, impaired driving is still a leading cause of fatal car crashes in B.C. Education and enforcement remain key priorities in reducing the number of impaired-related crashes. As the holiday season approaches, we’re reminding everyone that being a designated driver is a shared responsibility – take your turn to help your friends and family get home safely. To help keep our roads safe, police will be out in full force throughout December, looking for impaired drivers at roadchecks across the province.

Plan your ride

Recently the public was asked what it takes to be a designated driver. Many people said that the least drunk person often becomes the designated driver by default. Unfortunately, this is the type of thinking, along with a lack of planning, that leads to impaired driving crashes on our roads. In fact, the only time to decide how to get home safely is before you start drinking. Otherwise, it is too late. That is why everyone is reminded to designate a driver before the first round of drinks arrives.

Being a designated driver is a shared responsibility.

You can promote safe driving and encourage your friends and family to make smart choices. Set a positive example and take turns beingthe designated driver.

Remember, a designated driver is the person who decides not to drink so that they can drive others home safely.

Does food, coffee, exercise or a cold shower help sober you up?

Only time can sober you up or lower your blood-alcohol content.. Contrary to popular belief, food, coffee, cold showers or exercise will not speed up the elimination of alcohol from your system. You are safest if you completely separate driving from drinking.

Panthers prove it at provincials Tom Berridge

sports editor

The Moscrop Panthers became the first Burnaby school to make it to the final four at the B.C. high school AAA boys’ volleyball championships. The Panthers finished in fourth place at the provincials following a fiveset loss to top-seed Fraser Heights in the bronzemedal final in Kelowna on Saturday. Moscrop took the pretournament favourite to a tiebreak following games of 25-22, 22-25, 27-25, 2325, before falling 15-12. The loss was just the second for the Panthers at the provincials. Earlier, Moscrop lost in straight sets to eventual champion Oak Bay in the semifinals at the UBC Okanangan university campus. Grade 11 power Jerome Cross was a dominant force for the Panthers and was named a first team tournament all-star. Cross and second-team all-star setter Zach Or kept opposing teams on their toes with powerful jump serves. Moscrop senior Marcus Jung was named the most outstanding libero. The Panthers were also singled out as the most sportsmanlike team. “We’re really proud of the boys, and more importantly, how much respect the team gained,” said Moscrop co-coach Ed Chin. “The Oak Bay coaches ... said to us after our match ... about how much they respected our team

because even though we weren’t playing very well against Oak Bay, all our boys still had smiles on their faces when the match was going on, just enjoying the moment. ... We felt really good about that.” Moscrop won its pool in the tournament power rankings, which groups teams together based on their respective ratings in provincial polls. The No. 6-seeded Panthers defeated Mt. Boucherie in straight sets and Penticton 2-1 before upsetting No. 5-ranked Delta 25-16, 13-25, 15-7 in pool play. Moscrop then took care of North Peace in a foursetter in the championship round to move into the quarter-finals against highly-ranked Earl Marriott. “My goal was to earn some respect,” Moscrop co-coach Kim Or said of the match versus Marriott. Earlier in the season, Moscrop was soundly beaten by the Surrey school in a tournament at UBC. The West Burnaby boys upset No. 4 Marriott 25-22, 25-18, 27-25 to become one of just a small handful of Lower Mainland schools to ever reach a provincial AAA semifinal. “Beating (Marriott) in three sets, after that everything was gravy. I’ve never seen our coaches as proud of us as that,” said Jung. “I think we took them by surprise. We just had fun with it. It was one of the last games as a family – win or lose, we felt we’d already Moscrop Page 40

Notre Dame program back following banner year Tom Berridge

sports editor

It was a long time in coming, but “Oh yeah,” a win by the Notre Dame Jugglers in the B.C. high school Grade 8 boys’ football final was sweet. The first-year Jugglers won their first Quadra Cup title in 27 years with a 28-26 victory over G.W. Graham Grizzlies at B.C. Place on Saturday. MVP quarterback Steven Moretto, the hero of Canadian Little League champions Hastings baseball team, led the Jugglers with one touchdown passing and two touchdowns on the ground, including a five-yard run up the middle on a long, opening drive to start the third quarter.

Knights defence makes it a game

Moretto also ran in a key twopoint conversion on the ensuing play that gave Notre Dame a 10point lead and the cushion it needed against the game Chilliwack team. “Oh yeah, once we punched that in, it became a two-possession game,” said Moretto after the game. The Grizzlies closed the deficit to 22-18 on a tipped 15-yard touchdown pass to Gabe Mannes. But Joseph Santalucia put the Jugglers back in excellent field position with a big 26-yard kickoff return. Mario Marra then showed off his importance to the team, bulling his way down field on three consecutive running plays and finally scoring the eventual game-

winning TD on an eight-yard run. “I loved the fact the kids never stopped. The fight in them never stopped,” said Notre Dame head coach Joe Garcea. “It’s a testament to the coaching. The amount of time and effort they put in for a Grade 8 program is unheard of.” Notre Dame led 14-12 at halftime on a rushing major by Moretto and a 15-yard scoring pass to wide receiver Mauro Giammaria. Notre Dame’s Carlo Decoste was named the game’s outstanding lineman. The title banner was a big deal for the East Vancouver/Burnaby regional school that has not tasted victory in a high school football final since 1997, when the junior varsity team edged St. Thomas

More 14-8. The Jugglers varsity team has also been without a provincial banner since 1993. In that year, Notre Dame defeated Vancouver College in only the second all-Catholic school matchup in the B.C. finals in the past 20 years. “(The win) represents the entire community – the players that played before us and those that want to come to Notre Dame. It’s for all the alumni – everybody,” Garcea said. “It’s been an amazing year,” Moretto said, adding that the sight of senior Notre Dame students in the stands with their upper bodies painted blue and spelling out the word Jugglers said it all. “I know how much it means.”

The St. Thomas More Knights were outmanned, outsized and supposed to be a patsy for the unbeaten Terry Fox Ravens in the B.C. high school junior varsity football final – yet, they were anything but. Despite the odds against them, it was two big plays by Fox and too many turnovers on offence that proved the difference in STM’s 14-7 loss to the Ravens at B.C. Place on Saturday. “When you turn the ball over, it’s difficult to get any momentum to come back,” said STM head coach Dave Ruzycki, who has taken the Burnaby independent school to the JV final four out of the past five years. “The forecast was we were supposed to lose by three or four touchdowns, but we kept it close. (Fox) scored on two big plays, and one was a gadget play,” Ruzycki added. The latter TD followed a high snap on a punt that gave the Port Coquitlam squad excellent field position at the Knights’ 28 yard line. On Fox’s first play from scrimmage, eventual MVP Conner McKee hit wide receiver Dylan Foulds all alone in the end zone on a perfectly executed flea flicker play. The Ravens got the ball right back on a Tavin Grant fumble after a catch, but the Burnaby NOW’s player of the game, Nick Favaro, and lineman Ben Steele combined to snuff out the ensuing Fox drive with a big stop that turned the ball over on downs to the Knights in their own red zone. But that was not the end of it for STM. Quarterback Andrew Flett tossed up the first of four interceptions to McKee. Three plays later, McKee and Mike West teamed up for a 62-yard pass-and-run for the Ravens’ second TD. STM marched the ball downfield with the help of two tough catches by STM Page 40

won.” In 2009, Eric Hamber became the first Mainland zone school in almost 40 years to earn a medal since John Oliver won a silver medal back in 1971. Hamber finished with a bronze medal. Moscrop’s fourth-place finish capped off a season of firsts for the senior Panthers. A core group of the team won five consecutive district league banners for Moscrop that began as bantams, before earning the school program’s first-ever Lower Mainland title earlier this season. “It put Moscrop on the map. The culture we were trying to develop (at Moscrop), I’m hoping it will catch on,” Or said. It appears that for Jung and the rest of the Panthers it already has. “It really showed the culture coach Kim has taught us, … I want to thank him for believing in us for the five years. … That’s the best thing anyone could give us.”

STM: Best defence ever, says coach was outstanding,” Ruzycki said. “In all the years I’ve coached, this defense gave up the fewest points in my 30 years. But too many mistakes will kill you, and unfortunately that’s exactly what happened.” In the second half, STM got inside the Fox 10-yard line, but were turned back, and late in the game a long ball from Flett slipped through the hands of its intended receiver with nothing but empty real estate ahead of him. “From day one, we’ve always been a fighting team. We never let down,” said Favaro after the game. “If we played them again, I think we could beat them. After their second touchdown, we got right back at it. ”

Favaro. But the Knights were unable to punch the ball over the goalline on a fourth-and-two. The Knights forced Fox to punt deep and Grade 9 returner Terell Jana ran the ball back 22 yards to give STM first down on the Ravens’ 28. Favaro, who was named the game’s outstanding back with seven catches for 83 yards, later scored on a five-yard toss. Matthew Duda converted to close the deficit to seven points. But it was STM’s stingy defence that held Fox to just 200 total yards that gave the Knights life. “Our defence, as far as I’m concerned,

Clan receiver catches honour

SFU football wide receiver Lemar Durant was named to the Super Region 3 first all-star team on Nov. 30. Durant led the Great Northwest Conference in five categories, including 1,227 receiving yards.


BURNABY SPORTS BRIEFS The St. Thomas More Knights placed five players on this year’s B.C. high school provincial football all-star squad. STM defensive end Dante Vigini was named the MVP on defence. Vigini led the league in quarterback sacks this season. Joining Vigini on the all-defensive team were teammates Elliott Nelson at linebacker and Jalen Jana at defensive back. Anthony Quatrano of Burnaby was also named to the provincial team from Notre Dame at defensive back. On offence, STM wide receiver Malcolm Lee and Nico Repole were named to the all-province team. Mt. Douglas running back Marcus Davis was named player of the year. W.J. Mouat running back Maleek Irons was named MVP on offence.

Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
