Driver protests pothole policy Marelle Reid staff reporter
Burnaby resident David Pereira is frustrated by what he says is a lack of accountability on the part of the Insurance Corporation of B.C. after he hit a pothole that caused $1,200 worth of damage to his truck. On Nov. 30, Pereira was driving west-bound onto Highway 1 on the Kensington exit when he felt the front end of his truck drop down into a pothole he says was at least two feet deep and “about as big as a coffee table.” Pereira said he then noticed several other vehicles at the side of the road with flat tires “I’m not willing or broken wheels. When he checked his truck, to give up my he found there was damage to the driver’s side front wheel and free discount, fender. or whatever, for theHe contacted ICBC and dissomething that I covered other drivers had made similar claims due to the same don’t think I’m pothole causing vehicle damage responsible for.” before the police closed the exit that night. DAVID PEREIRA “No one’s taking responsibildriver ity on it,” he said. “… So there’s me and 22 to 24 other people that are left holding the bag.” Pereira said he is upset ICBC is calling the accident a collision and that he cannot get comprehensive coverage for the repairs of his vehicle. “I’m not willing to give up my free discount, or whatever, for something that I don’t think I’m responsible for,”

he said. Unlike a rock hitting a windshield, for example, which would fall under comprehensive coverage, any damage caused by a pothole is considered a collision. Adam Grossman, senior media relations advisor for the insurance company, said collision claims include accidents involving another vehicle, a person, object or the surface of the road.
“And that’s not an ICBC definition of a collision claim – you could call any auto insurance provider in the world and it would be treated in the same way,” Grossman said. After talking with ICBC, Pereira was informed neither Peter Kiewit/Flatiron Construction Corporation, the Pothole Page 8
Police dispatch move raises staff concerns Stefania Seccia staff reporter
Burnaby council made a smooth decision to carry the city’s move of its 911 police dispatch service to E-Comm, though nine members of the Operations Communication Centre (OCC) showed up to council hoping to stop the transfer.

After discussions with E-Comm over the past several months and examining the feasibility of the regional E-Comm service model, it was decided it “can provide a cost efficient and operational effective business model to Burnaby,” according to a report from the city’s deputy city manager, Lambert Chu.
However, nine of the approximately 30 OCC call takers and dispatchers who attended the meeting stayed after council adjourned to raise their concerns about absorption of their jobs to E-Comm, speaking with Coun. Pietro Calendino. Amongst the concerns was that E-Comm may not give the same level of service cur-

ELLEN WONG KNOWS WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE POOR AND FACE CHALLENGES
Life lessons: Support makes a big difference Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Ellen Wong knows how difficult learning can be for children with disabilities from low-income families. Wong, a 47-year-old Burnaby resident, grew up in Malaysia, in a family of four, with an intellectually disabled brother. “I know what it’s like,” she says. “Over there, there is no social system like here, so it’s difficult.” Wong’s brother had epilepsy as a child, which she suspects affected his mental development and cognitive skills. It was difficult to communicate with her brother, and it was hard to teach him things he needed to know to get along in society. “It was difficult teaching him because we didn’t have any public, social support. The government doesn’t have that kind of support, so that was the tough part,” she says. “We were poor, too, so we didn’t have any resources to pay people to help us.” In countries like Wong’s, families that can afford it pay for help because no social safety net exists. Wong’s parents sent her brother to school with the rest of the kids, but since there were no education assistants, he failed everything. “I think if he were born here, he would have been able to do a lot of the basic life skills, like cook, or go to the bus stop,” she says. Wong and her family eventually moved to Canada, along with her brother, but he still needs supervision.
“He’s 49 – still, we need to be with him, we have to take care of him, we have to make decisions for him,” she says. “He has to be taken care of.” Now, Wong finds herself in a somewhat similar situation, a mother of four with a 14year-old son who has cerebral palsy. Although her son is fine mentally and intellectually, he was often pulled from class to spend time with other disabled students and their education assistants, which Wong says contributed to him falling behind in class. “Later I found out he was not in a classroom, too. They took him out to be with the principal all day,” she says. It wasn’t till her son was in Grade 5 that she put a stop to it and asked that he be kept in class. By Grade 6, Wong was the one who pulled her son out of school to teach him at home so he could catch up, she explains laughing. Her experiences, as a child and mother, are partly why she’s organizing an upcoming fundraiser at New Westminster’s Massey Theatre on Sunday, Feb. 10. Wong has lined up Tenore, a group of three tenors, with singer/songwriter Kevin Pauls as a special guest. Tickets start at $25, and proceeds go to Vancouver Urban Ministries, which runs an after-school program that helps 17 inner-city kids with one-on-one help, twice a week, with specially trained tutors. The program targets kids who have learning disabilities or those who are learning English as a second language. “I want to help the children

Show time: Burnaby mom Ellen Wong is organizing a fundraiser concert at Massey Theatre in New Westminster to help Vancouver Urban Ministries, which tutors kids with learning disabilities. living in poverty in the city of Vancouver. In this case, the funds specifically will be going to those with learning disabilities, and because coming from my son’s point of view – and I guess from my brother’s, too – I feel that the families who are living in poverty, if they have children who have a learning disability, it’s really very difficult,” she says. “I feel strongly in doing this. I hope 1,200 people will come (to the concert) and
support this just so these kids can learn to read and write and do simple math. To me, that’s really important to break the cycle.” Wong wants people to support the cause because people living in poverty have fewer resources, and the Vancouver Urban Ministries program can help. “It’s really great for someone to come along and say, ‘Hey, I’m going to give you a helping
hand, even if it’s just very little,’” she says. “I think it also gives them hope for humanity, too. Because if a stranger comes and helps you, it gives you a hope for humanity and motivation for them to do better, too.” Wong’s “Valentine’s Treat” benefit show is on Sunday, Feb. 10, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Massey, at 735 Eighth Ave. To buy tickets, go to www.masseytheatre.com, or call the box office at 604-521-5050.

asked to remain nameless, said to the councillor. Calendino said the group could put in a meeting with the mayor. However, the decision to enter into a five-year agreement with EComm was already decided. The councillor also added that council relied on the information and recommendation provided by the superintendent, and admit-
ted that council does not know the intricacies of the call centre otherwise. “RCMP Burnaby detachment chief superintendent [Dave] Critchley is in agreement with the transfer of the OCC operations to E-Comm, and CUPE Local 23 is prepared to work with E-Comm towards developing a transition plan that will meet the needs of its members,” according to the staff
report. Final details of the union members’ transfer and position resettlement will be worked out now that the proposal has been approved. The move will save the city about $100,000, as the cost of the service for a full year is about $2.4 million.

CRIME IN BRIEF Mail theft in city investigated by police
The Burnaby RCMP are investigating an increase in mail thefts from apartments in the North Burnaby area. According to an RCMP press release, multiple mailboxes were damaged and mail was stolen from two different locations in North Burnaby. Mail theft can result in instances of identity theft and fraudulent usage of personal information. Police are also warning that any apartment building, condominium or townhouse complex with a central mail repository can be victimized in
According to Cpl. Dave Reid of the Burnaby RCMP, the incident occurred around 11 p.m. with a report of a single shot being fired at the home in a quiet neighbourhood not far from the Douglas Road Elementary School and Burnaby school board offices. “We believe the house was targeted, but the three people inside are not known to police,” said Reid. Police have heard from witnesses that a darker model small hatchbacktype car was seen leaving the area, but that’s the extent of the vehicle description. “Police are still investigating and at this point, we have no suspects,” said Reid. -files by Alfie Lau, staff reporter

Police are reminding apartment building tenants to be vigilant when entering or exiting their residences and to be aware of strangers loitering in or around the lobby areas of their buildings. People who see anything suspicious are asking to advise their property manager or Block Watch coordinator or call the Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Riding plan was opposed Dear Editor:
Re: Burnaby split into three ridings, Burnaby NOW, Jan. 30. As one of several dozen presenters at the B.C. electoral boundary commission public meeting in Burnaby, I join with others in expressing concern with the commission decision to reject the virtually unanimous presentations made by dozens of citizens opposing a Burnaby North-Seymour riding and advocate retaining Burnaby-Douglas. Both the first held B.C. commission meeting in Seymour and the last held B.C. commission in Burnaby were overwhelmingly against a North Burnaby-Seymour riding.

What is the purpose of a commission if not to listen to the public? The evident outright rejection of input from citizens may be taken as a disregard for the process of public consultation. Certainly there were other boundary configuration options and recommendations made, and other strategies available which the commission could have taken into account in rendering a decision. The two electoral boundary commission panel hearings were deluged with opposition to revert to an illogical Burnaby North-Seymour riding terminated by a previous commission. Perhaps surprisingly, the presentations against a Burnaby North-Seymour riding were acknowledged by chair John Hall and in the next breath

discounted in what appears to be a preconceived decision by the commissioners to force the fusion of Burnaby North and Seymour. Why? The result is an elongated, divided, disparate Burnaby NorthSeymour riding. So, it may be said to be incongruous, if not insulting, (as reported in the Burnaby Now article) the statement from chair John Hall: “We heard from people who gave us very good submissions – Mayor (Derek) Corrigan and I think the MLAs from out there – and ultimately we had to make a decision and we made that decision.” A telling statement of apparent indifference. commission chair Hall could have at least remembered if the MLAs from “out there” actually attended the Commission hearings, and if they made or did not make or submit presentations. They would have been on the presenter list and have been acknowledged. Apparently there is one last chance for MPs in Parliament to provide feedback on the B.C. boundary commission final report; to which chair Hall commented, off hand it seems: “We may … look at some of these ridings and reconsider.” Well there appears to be significant opposition points worthy of reconsidering. Dr. Phil Moir, Burnaby
More research needed Dear Editor:
Three years ago I attended a public information session at which options
for disposing of solid waste in Metro Vancouver were discussed. I was disappointed in the session as it was obvious Metro Vancouver had already decided to proceed with the waste to energy (incinerator) option. There were five so-called experts on the panel and they were all proponents of waste to energy. I felt like I was attending a propaganda session. Concerns expressed by members of the audience were dismissed cavalierly with the assurance that the process would be so efficient that it would not produce any hazardous air emissions. I see the B.C. Ministry of the Environment has granted approval for Metro Vancouver to pursue plans for a waste to energy facility and Metro Vancouver is resisting allowing the Fraser Valley Regional District to be directly involved in oversight of the implementation of the project. This is interesting since the prevailing winds are from the west, which means that any emissions from the facility will blow to the east into the FVRD’s jurisdiction. I will await anxiously the decision where to site the facility. If it is sited in Richmond or Vancouver I will have some confidence that the decision makers believe what the experts are telling them. Unfortunately all of the options for disposing of solid waste are unattractive and it may be that waste to energy is in fact the best or rather least bad option. However, before reaching that conclusion, an impartial fully informed review of all of the options should have taken place, which to my knowledge hasn’t happened.

The Opposition New Democrats are sure to condemn the asset sales as a phony and misleading way to balance the books. Apparently O’Neill will not be asked to look at the spending side. But with an election on the horizon, there isn’t much flexibility on this side of the equation because big spending cuts would be politically dangerous. The one area to watch is health-care spending, because its huge budget means it can be tempting for a government to play games with it. For example, the B.C. Liberals’ three-year fiscal plan projects a $600 million increase in health-care spending next year. Will the budget stick to that

THE CHANGING CITY
Parents can pay school fees online Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
The Burnaby school district is going cashless. Parents of children at several local schools can now pay for things like field trip fees and yearbooks online. “It’s sort of like PayPal, you need to be signed up,” said Lynda Kerr, the district’s accounting and audit officer who helped implement the system. “(Parents) can see the fee with a description of what that fee is all about.” The system is called School Cash Online, and it can be used to pay fees for field trips, concerts, Grade 7 camping trips, yearbooks, graduation and advanced placement exams, for example. On the school’s end, the secretary or bookkeeper can upload fees applicable to each student. Parents can log in and find the names of their children online and what fees need to be paid. From the parents’ point of view, the system is very simple, Kerr said. To sign up, parents need to go to the site and register themselves with their name and address, and they’ll receive a confirmation email. Once they’ve signed up, logged in and found their child’s school and profile, they can see what fees are payable, with explanations on what the money is for. All of Burnaby’s secondary schools and eight elementary schools have been using the system since September. Most of the remaining schools will be using School Cash Online in the coming months. The district implemented the system to help manage the money going into schools. So far, the School Cash Online system is only accepting e-cheque payments, which

In order to keep the costs down, the district is not accepting credit card payments with the online system. “We wanted to make it simple to start with. This is our first year we’re implementing this at a number of schools,” Kerr said, “and we don’t want any of the costs transferred to the parents.” According to Kerr, there’s more transparency and convenience for parents, and finances are easier to track electronically. The new sys-
tem is optional, and parents can still pay by regular cheque or cash. Information provided through School Cash Online is secure, according to Kerr. “It is secure, it’s kept on a secure server,” she said. “The information is kept in Canada, even though KEVgroup (which runs School Cash Online) does have a U.S. office, … all the information is kept in Canada.” For more information, or to sign up for online payments, go to www.burnaby.school cashonline.com.
company that has been working on the freeway expansion, nor the City of Burnaby have accepted responsibility for damages. According to the city’s director of engineering, Lou Pelletier, Highway 1 and its exits are not city roads, but rather fall under the jurisdiction of the provincial government. Greg Johnson, manager of communications for the Port Mann/Highway 1 Project Transportation Investment Corporation, said ICBC is the first place drivers should go with claims for vehicle damage, but that the construction company does have a claims department for handling cases, as well. “We have someone on the project that deals with that exclusively,” he said. Johnson said he could not comment on whether there have been any claims made through his company since the highway expansion project began.

EXOTIC WORLD OF SPECIALTY COFFEE COMES HOME TO BURNABY
49th Parallel brews up a winning blend
Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
Swishing it, a rich scent arises. The flavour is gentle and light, floral with a strong lemon finish. Tasting the next cup is a completely different experience; the brash complexities of the fruity notes ring out like a brass band. This is not your typical cup of coffee. A Burnaby-based coffee roaster, 49th Parallel, has brought the world of specialty coffee to the city and beyond. The company, which began roasting at its headquarters in Burnaby in 2005, sources its coffee beans very carefully – and even trains the baristas in the shops that serve it carefully, as well. Kyle Straw is 49th Parallel’s barista educator. For the past year and a half, he has travelled to the cafés that serve the specialty coffee to ensure the baristas bring out the best flavour possible from the beans. His main instruction – taste it. “We’re constantly cupping, tasting, trying,” he says, speaking over the din of customers and music at Caffe Divano in Burnaby Heights – one of 49th Parallel’s clients. Straw teaches baristas how the grind of the coffee, and the amount of water and coffee used, can affect the flavour. He also points out the importance of freshness – the company roasts beans to order and delivers them fresh, he says. “The aroma compounds in coffee are super, super volatile,” Straw explains. Training baristas includes educating and empowering them, he says. “A lot of it comes down to empowerment and passion,” Straw says. And Straw’s passion comes through – particularly when he talks about one of his favourite coffees, a Kenyan coffee from the Kangocho Factory. “So this Kenya, for example, like most Kenyas it’s big, it’s bold, it’s fruity. It’s got lots of sweetness and lots of acidity,” he says. “I love Kenyas, they’re such large
coffees. Everything about them is intense.” Tasting it, freshly made by Straw, I have to agree – the Kenyan coffee is one to mull over, with deep, complex flavours such as blackberry and a little citrus. In contrast, the Ethiopian coffee from the Sidamo Fero cooperative is much lighter; lemony and cheerful. The majority of 49th Parallel’s coffees are generally single-sourced, rather than a blend, giving each the unique flavour of the beans from a particular farm or region. The beans are sourced from farms and cooperatives, some organic, some not, some fair-trade certified, and others are sourced through direct trade. “We’ve got a green bean buyer who is out in the world six to seven months of the year, visiting farms,” Straw says. “It’s really important to us that each coffee’s unique, each coffee’s different, each coffee represents the farm or the region from which we get it.” To ensure that customers taste the flavour of the coffees that are so carefully sourced, 49th Parallel roasts the beans a little differently from other roasters, he says. “We roast light,” Straw explains. “And the reason we roast light is we’re trying to represent the inherent qualities of that coffee as best we can. And the darker you go, the more the coffee just tastes like roast, so it tastes like a process.” The company offers both espresso and drip coffee and sells espresso equipment, filtered coffee equipment and more on its website. The coffee is, of course, also available by the cup at places such as Caffe Divano in Burnaby, and at 49th Parallel’s two Vancouver cafes. For more information, go to www.49thparallelroasters.com.

Year of the Snake may bring long-term success Chinese NewYear 2013 is the year of the Snake. On February 10th we enter the year of the Water Snake. Noted for their grace, complexity and poise, Snakes are also a symbol of wisdom. It’s this intelligence and ability to solve problems that promises 2013 will be one of steady progress and long-term success. Although rational, Snakes are highly intuitive, and so the combination of logic and instinct will be an asset particularly in the world
of business. Apart from being hardworking, career-oriented and ambitious Snakes are known for having the Midas touch. However, shortcuts won’t yield results, only focus and attention to detail. The Snake’s mysterious and sneaky traits can also be used to uncover loopholes. According to Feng Shui experts we can expect upward trends particularly in industries involving finance, education, media, metals and minerals. On an individual level, most can also hope to improve their current financial situation. All in all, many will emerge from this year stronger, wiser, better off and with a well-deserved pat on the back!

February celebrations add Bringing affordable festive flair to the Heights eyewear to Heights By Connie Ou The Heights Contributor
Witnessing Hastings Street springing to life through music and the dynamic movements of the traditional lion dance brings me back to my childhood years, when I would eagerly anticipate savoury dishes, delectable sweets and the red pocket money that accompanied the arrival of a brand new year in the Chinese calendar. Of course, it was also the fun atmosphere of Chinese New Year that made everything that much more memorable for me. With the first day of Chinese New Year fast approaching on Sunday, Feb. 10 and the entire festive period lasting for as long as 15 days until Sunday, Feb. 24, this month is a special one for the Heights as well, where cultural diversity is embraced and celebrated. The Heights Merchants Association will be holding its annual Chinese New Year festivities to celebrate the Year of the Snake on Saturday, Feb. 16 starting at noon at 4019 Hastings St. Aside from watching the popular lion dance, lucky onlookers
will also receive fortune cookies containing special messages, or red envelopes containing the chance to win various Heights gift certificates. Count me in. But there’s also something else that makes February a unique month on the Heights. It’s the overlap between the lively Chinese New Year festival and the sweet romantic undertones of Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re planning on making a special home-cooked meal for your beloved or are looking for a unique gift, your Heights merchants have you covered. If you’re stuck on ideas and need some inspiration, check out our merchant directory at www.burnabyheights.com. Suddenly, February doesn’t seem so bleak anymore; rather, it transforms into a month filled with nostalgia and charm as our celebrations of multiculturalism and love continue. Connie Ou was a marketing and events assistant summer student with the Heights Merchants Association.

When she asked the customers why, they told her it was because of the exceptional service at the new store. “I think it’s the prices,” she says, laughing. Opticentre is a new model of business in an age when many people are buying glasses online – instead of starting an online business, the owners decided to
sell affordable eyewear from a storefront, with knowledgeable staff to help. “Those are riding too low,” Louise Hamel, associate manager, says to a woman who enters the store, regarding her glasses. Hamel has worked in the industry for decades, most recently at a hospital fitting glasses for children. She takes the woman’s glasses and reshapes the bridge so it fits better on her nose. Chandar and Hamel chat with every person who comes through the door, often explaining the store’s mission repeatedly to people who come in looking for an optician and lab, and expecting to shell out hundreds of dollars. There is no optician at the store, there is no lab – just hundreds and hundreds of pairs of frames in every colour lining the pristine white walls. The glasses go for $99 or less, including the prescription lenses. Continued on page 17 ...

with it, or you go to another place and you get something for $300 or $400 or $500,” he says. So they came up with the concept of a low-cost eyewear storefront business, he says, and the owner began dealing directly with a frame manufacturer. “And now we’re able to pass those savings and costs to the customers,” Brassard says. Glasses are one item where it is definitely best to buy them after trying them on, he says. “Particularly for glasses, because its something you’re trying on and it’s something that particularly, people want it to fit their face, to feel good, they want it to be right for them,” he explains. “We just found that people like to try them on, and it’s a much better experience, and it guarantees that they’re going to get what

Paul Brassard, Opticentre’s operations manager, says the business model was driven by the needs of loved ones. The owner had ordered glasses online and was dissatisfied with them, he says. “It got him thinking, ‘well, if I’ve had this issue, who else has had this issue?’” Brassard says. Brassard asked his family members and discovered his wife, his mother-in-law and his wife’s cousin had all ordered glasses online and had the same experience, he says. “There was a gap in the market, because either you could go online and buy lesser cost stuff and not necessarily be happy
they pay for and what they like. “We also found an opportunity that, with the idea of the price point, we’re not so much looking at eyewear as a necessity but as an accessory,” Brassard adds. “I might need to wear glasses but now, at this price point, I can accessorize my glasses with my outfit.” The decision to open in the Heights was also strongly connected to family, Brassard says, adding he lives in Burnaby, as well. “I actually live in Burnaby, and I was driving by and noticed this place was up for lease,” he says. “As it turns out, my mother-in-law grew up here. And her mom, in fact, worked at the fish market two doors over in her twenties. “I live around here and I love the area,” he adds. The connection between the businesses Continued on page 18 ...

Continued from page 17 and the involvement of the Heights Merchants Association were perks as well, he says. “I really like the idea of how the fellow merchants bond together,” he says. “The book store is referring business to us, and in turn we’re referring business to them.” The company plans to expand to other locations by the end of the year, according to Brassard, and is planning some charitable and community initiatives, as well. Opticentre plans to start an
eyewear recycling program, with customers donating their previous glasses when they get new ones. The glasses would then be sent overseas to people in need. Other ideas being considered include offering benefits to co-op members via the Co-operative Housing Federation of Canada, discounts for low-income families, and a buy-a-pair, give-apair program, Brassard says. The store is at 4012 Hastings St. and is open Monday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
There is row upon row of frames in every style adorning the walls of Opticentre, the eyewear store that opened last month in the Heights.

Create your own “care packages” for health HEALTHWISE
Dr. Davidicus Wong
y sister – thoughtful like our mother – is known for her care packages. When seeing us off before a vacation, she would pack for each of our kids a bag of treats along with activities to keep them occupied for the trip. After Christmas dinner, she packed my care pack-
age of turkey, stuffing and yams for the next day’s lunch. Though you may or may not have a sister or aunt who does this, you need and deserve some pampering yourself. Why not pack your own selfcare package? Also called coping kits, these emotional emergency crash kits are invaluable tools for our mental wellbeing. We may need them for our down days, when we are grieving a loss, struggling in our relationships or just feeling blue. They can provide perspective and strength
when we are stressed, anxious or worried, and they can help us get through a panic attack. They can give us a lift when we’re feeling grumpy and cool us off when tempers simmer. Without preparing a self-care package, we may default to more maladaptive coping habits. Smoking, drinking, drugs and overeating may make us feel better for the moment while sabotaging our health. So what are the essential contents of your selfcare package? You may need printed step-by-step instructions
to remind you what to do in the event of a panic attack, an emotional crisis or a totally negative day. In the heat of the moment, when you are feeling overwhelmed, you may not remember them. The instructions for a panic attack may include a reminder to take slow easy breaths, recite positive, calming aphorisms, and imagine your body calming with each slow breath. Your rainy day coping kit may include objects – such as photos – that remind you of that which makes life worthwhile, particularly your posi-
tive relationships. Include cards and messages from them. In case of an emotional emergency, include your lifelines – the people you should call. These are the ones who care about you and can give you a positive perspective. Of course, every selfcare package should include life’s little pleasures: your favourite songs (the tunes that always give you a lift and the words you can’t keep from singing out loud), your favourite movies (that engage your imagination, inspire you or just make you
laugh) and even a modest serving of your favourite comfort food. What you can’t pack into any physical or virtual self-care package is an activity you always enjoy. It could be dancing, swimming, running or spending time with a good friend. Whatever it is, you should do it today… and any day when you need a lift.

Biz: Head to the bank with all those unnecessary Canadian pennies continued from page 11
residents can do with their pennies, as well as other change - bring it to the credit union’s coin counting machine. The Burnaby branch at 4590 Hastings St. has a free coin counting machine for public use, which accepts up to $250 per person per day. “The coin counting machine has been a popular one within the Burnaby Heights community, its been a great way for us to encourage neighbours and local community groups to
stop in and see what we’re all about,” Val Bahnman, branch manager, said in a press release. “With the elimination of the penny by the federal government, we want to help people get rid of the change that tends to collect everywhere while giving them back the full value.” The branch is open Monday to Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Fridays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, go to www.freechange counter.com.

TAXES HAVE YOU BUGGING OUT? FREE 30 min. complimentary consultation. Call us today to see how we can help you.
By Robyn K. Thompson, CFP
The bill-paying season is here. And for many of us, it seems to go on far too long. There always seems to be “too much month for the money.” But I’ve found that the big problem isn’t the income – it’s the “outgo.” Luckily there are some easy ways to control the spending. 1. Make a list. All you need is pencil and paper. Write down what you spend every week for a month. Include all expenses and bills. Then compare it with what you make. That way you’ll know how big a hole you’re in, and whether you need to stop digging. 2. Beware the cash vampires! These are the items that suck the life out of your bank account. With annual rates of 20% or more, credit cards are the worst. So pay off that credit card debt as fast as possible. If you’re in deep, consider consolidating your debt with a low interest line of credit or a personal loan. And then cut up all your cards, save for one. And on that one, slash the allowable credit limit – and never max out the card! 3. Resist the urge to splurge! Retailers rely on impulse spending to ratchet up that $50 sale to $100 or more. You’re in a psychological war with the retailer. So plan to spend defensively: Decide how much you’re willing to spend before you ever set foot in the store. Set a dollar limit – even for those “impulse” buys – and don’t exceed it.
Six ways to get your spending back under control
6. Don’t buy lottery tickets! Government lotteries are called “a tax on stupidity.” And for good reason. I’ve met people who have seriously told me that part of their retirement plan is to win a major lottery prize. And they gamble accordingly – spending hundreds, even thousands, of dollars a year on tickets. But with odds against of 28 million-to-one or more, they have more chance of being awarded an Oscar or being struck by lightning. Don’t gamble on lotteries! Instead, use the money to pay down debt, start an investment plan, save for a house, or contribute to a child’s education fund. Robyn K. Thompson, CFP, is president of Castlemark Wealth Management.

4. No frittering. Love those lattés through the day? That new fashion mag? A little sale item from a lunchtime trip to Winners? Those “incidental” expenses could add up to $10 a day or more. That’s over $3,000 a year you’re frittering away. Set aside a ﬁxed amount of “pocket money” for incidentals each week, and don’t exceed it. 5. Hunt for bargains. I know people who’ll haggle for an hour to get $5 off the price of a $30,000 new car, a saving of 0.016%. Yet they’ll pay the full $1,000 for a new ﬂat screen television when the same one is on offer down the street for $200 less, giving up a saving of 20%. When making big-ticket purchases, shop around, and don’t be afraid to haggle. Most retailers will now match competitors’ prices for identical items. Over a year, you could save thousands.

TASTE Burnaby’s James Street Café is a foodie’s delight THE DISH
nce known as one of the Lower Mainland’s best breakfast joints, the James Street Café at 3819 Canada Way is showing diners that it can do many things well. Owner Anish Lakhani has expanded the menu to include some of the finest East African cuisine, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a great bacon double cheeseburger or fish and chips served with masala potatoes. Yes, the James Street Café has one of the most extensive and varied menus in the city and Lakhani wouldn’t have it any other way. “We bought this location in 2008 and we had a good breakfast crowd,” said Lakhani. “We realized there was an Ismaili mosque across the street and they had people coming over here, but all they would order is a tea or coffee. We decided to expand our menu and I had our chef put together an East African menu.” Lakhani said East African food is noted for its emphasis on lemon, chili and spices for flavour
– in marked difference to East Indian cuisine’s reliance on garlic, ginger and curry sauces for flavour. And to prove his point, Lakhani has chef Sonam Sherpa prepare the nyama choma variety plate for us. Nyama choma, or grilled meat, is traditional African barbecue and we can’t get enough of the steak mishkaki, beef ribs, chicken and lamb shoulder that comes with both a mild Tamarind sauce and a medium-hot chili sauce. The deluxe platter, which is $23.95, is meant to feed two people, but the portion is so large it can easily feed four people. We also get the mogo cassava fries, which put French fries to shame and are worth the extra $2.50. The steak mishkaki is tender, while the chicken packs a satisfying and spicy kick. Lakhani said he has spent years sourcing out the best food suppliers and he only orders in the best cuts. “You have to serve the best food to keep your customers coming back,” he said. And that’s further evidenced in our chicken biryani, which features some of the most delectable saffron rice I’ve ever tasted. We’re told by our server that biryani is a royal dish, usually served last, and is meticulously
prepared. Sherpa has taken that mandate seriously and the chicken biryani is a wonderful mix of sweet and spicy. And the portions, much like every other dish at James Street, are so large that it becomes my lunch the next day at work. Lakhani isn’t afraid to try new things and being located mere blocks from the offices of HSBC, Pacific Blue Cross and Electronic Arts means that he’s feeding many of the employees during their lunch breaks. He’s also put together an extensive catering menu, which includes favourites such as butter chicken, veggie samosas and chicken biryani, for as little as $10.95 per person. There are also daily specials, ranging from fish masala to Bombay chicken and he’s even got a weekend brunch special for $11.95, which includes Kheema (ground beef) curry, veggie omelettes, masala potatoes and naan bread. The James Street Café and Grill, located at 3819 Canada Way, is open seven days a week from 7:30 a.m. on weekdays and 9:30 a.m. on weekends.

Rebel girls win third tournament Burnaby makes
it right at draft
Burnaby South’s starting five all hit in double figures to win their own high school girls’ basketball tournament last weekend. Tournament MVP Pavneet Brar scored 25 points in South’s 85-59 victory over Notre Dame in the tournament championship final at South on Saturday. Ana Lukic and Stephanie Labbé tallied 16 points apiece, while Manpreet Nijjar and Jasmine Manhas collected 14 and 12 points, respectively for the winners in the high-scoring final. South shot lights out in the final, keeping the pressure on Notre Dame, an AA honourable mention, with its fast break and multiple three-pointers. Nijjar was named the tourney’s top defensive player. Lukic and Labbé were also named all-stars. Burnaby South is currently ranked No. 9 in provincial AAA polling. The Rebels opened the two-day tourney with a 69-22 win over Guildford Park. South then advanced to the tournament final following a 71-34 victory over Clayton Heights. Woodlands defeated Clayton Heights 40-34 to finish in third place. Last month, South won earlier high school tournaments, taking top spot in the Bob Carkner memorial in Richmond hosted by honourable mention Steveston-London and the Sir Winston Churchill tournament in Vancouver.

All-star move: Burnaby South’s Stephanie Labbé takes it hard to the bucket in a semifinal win over Clayton Heights on Saturday.
Clan women give Alaska the chills Tom Berridge
Simon Fraser University gave Alaska State schools the cold shoulder in varsity women’s basketball last week. The second-place Clan knocked off rivals Fairbanks and Anchorage at home to remain just ahead of a tightly packed trio of competing schools in the competitive Great Northwest conference. The Clan opened with a 60-52 win over Alaska Anchorage last Thursday. They then sent winless Alaska Fairbanks packing with a solid 71-55 victory on the following Saturday. Erin Chambers started things off for SFU, netting 20 points, including six-for-six from the foul line
in the win over Anchorage. Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe hauled down a game-high 17 rebounds to retain her third-place standing in NCAA Division II rebounding per game. SFU trailed 30-28 at halftime after a late 20-9 Anchorage run. But the home Clan got back at it in the second half that saw the lead change hands nine times before SFU finally took control. With less than two minutes left in the game, Chambers knocked down a pair of free throws, the first of eight straight the Clan would hit from the charity stripe to earn the win. On Saturday, Raincock-Ekunwe tallied the 53rd double-double of her varsity hoop career, posting a game-high 26 points while adding 16 boards. “We wanted to work on improv-
ing our offensive flow,” said the 6-2 Clan senior in a press release. “We had no offence going for us in our last game. We focused on setting screens and moving the ball well tonight.” SFU outscored Fairbanks 38-28 in the paint and the Clan bench contributed 19 points to the visitors’ deuce. SFU led 34-25 at the interval, but built the lead up to as much as 20 points in the second half. The win improved SFU’s conference record to 9-2. The Clan will play conference leader and No. 5-ranked University of Western Washington this Saturday at the West Gym. Game time is 7 p.m. Last month, SFU lost a narrow two-point decision to Western Washington in Bellingham.

SFU beats Division I Seattle U in pool
Clan club loses series to Selkirk Third time proved no luckier than the first two for the Simon Fraser University club hockey team. The Clan club lost its third consecutive game in as many tries in the season series against first-place Selkirk College in B.C. Intercollegiate hockey last weekend. SFU lost 5-2 at the Castlegar rec centre on Saturday after posting a 4-3 win against Eastern Washington University just the night before. Simon Fraser led 21 after the first period on power play goals from Nick Sandor and Kody Dhaliwal. But Selkirk, which has lost just once in 17 starts this season, scored four times in the final 20 minutes, including back-toback markers less than 30 seconds apart by Jordan Wood. Wood, the league scoring leader with 19 goals and 37 points, also tallied a shorthanded marker into an empty net in the final seconds of the game to clinch the game’s first star.
SFU goalie Graeme Gordon was named the second star. The two teams will meet at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre for a fourth and final time this season later this month. SFU will host Selkirk College in Burnaby on Feb. 23 at its usual 7 p.m. start. On Friday, Colton Graf was the game’s first star, tallying the eventual gamewinning goal on the power play that gave the Burnaby visitors a 4-1 lead late in the middle period. Trevor Milner and Sandor, the third star, both scored to give the Clan a 2-0 lead after the opening period. Evan Kurylo backstopped the win for the Clan with 27 saves. The win kept the 13-40-1 Clan in second place in the six-team league, five points behind first-place Selkirk College. This Saturday, SFU plays host to Eastern Washington at the Copeland centre. Game time is 7 p.m. tberridge@burnabynow. com

Dimitar Ivanov got the Clan off to strong start, winning the 800m free in a convincing time of 8:44.01. Adam Kautz then scored a win in the 200m free. Jason Evans and Hans Heyer finished one-two in the 50m free sprint, while Ciaran McDonnell and Paolo Olavario scored the final two wins for the Clan, touching first in the 100m butterfly and backstroke, respectively. – Tom Berridge
