Pick a puppy Stefania Seccia staff reporter
Heaps of energy are bouncing around a local society in the form of puppies, which are in desperate need of a home so they can one day help those with a disability. Pacific Assistance Dogs Society (PADS) has nine puppies, which means the society is in dire need of puppy raisers, breeders and caretakers. “We had a donation of approximately nine puppies with more on the way,” Laura Watamanuk, PADS executive director, told the Burnaby NOW while holding one wellbehaved, light brown puppy in her arms. “This little guy here is a dog that’s just arrived from California.” PADS trains dogs for people with disabilities other than blindness. The society trains hearing dogs for the deaf and service dogs for people with other disabilites. “We’re in desperate need of volunteer puppy raisers along with families that are interested in being breeder/caretakers,” Watamanuk said. The society works mostly with Labrador retrievers and golden retrievers, and each has a value between $50,000 to $90,000, which includes the cost of obtaining/breeding the dog, training, placement and follow-up. PADS was the first Canadian organization to receive full accreditation from Assistance Dogs International, which sets a high standard for apprenticeship dog training, placement and

At play: Laura Watamanuk, the executive director of the Pacific Assistance Dogs Society, is hoping nine new puppies will go home with volunteer puppy raisers as soon as possible. The society also needs families that are interested in being breeders and caretakers.

Fighting to keep urban agriculture alive Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
Dave Carlson is worried about development encroaching on his Burnaby farm land. Carlson, who runs Common Ground Community Farm, is part of the new generation of farmers making a go of it in Burnaby’s Big Bend area.
His farm is part of the approximately 600 acres of land in the city that is part of the Agricultural Land Reserve. Recently, the city began turning North Fraser Way into a through road, he said, and came four metres onto the farm property and dumped road preload material onto it. “You should see what the front

of the house looks like, it’s like a war zone out there. It’s like a big preload gravel pit,” Carlson said. That is one of the reasons Carlson was glad to hear about a ground-breaking regional food system design and planning project being proposed by Kwantlen Polytechnic University researchers and other educational institutions.

“I’m glad someone’s taking the initiative to protect our food sources,” he said. “If it takes Kwantlen to be the people to come and bring it to the cities to make it happen, I think that’s awesome,” Carlson added. The project is very intuitive in terms of local farmers’ needs, according to Julia Smith, who runs Urban Digs Farm in Burnaby.

“The most interesting thing is, what they’re proposing is what we’re discovering we have to do anyway,” she said. “We’re a new farm, obviously, and what we’re finding out is that, though we set out to be more self-sufficient, we’re actually finding that it takes a community.” Farm Page 9

PM unveils tougher laws
New laws: Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced tougher measures for high-risk offenders at an event in Burnaby last Friday. Jennifer Gauthier/burnaby now
Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Prime Minster Stephen Harper descended on Burnaby Friday to announce reforms affecting offenders who are found not criminally responsible due to a mental disorder. At the Delta Burnaby Hotel, Harper said the Conservative government introduced the Not Criminally Responsible Reform Act in the House of Commons, as an attempt to address concerns raised by victims of crime when the perpetrator has been found not criminally responsible. “While it is true that the arm of the state cannot be everywhere at all times, nor would we want it to be, nevertheless when atrocious events do occur and the state fails to act, it fails to do all it can do to defend innocent civilians,” Harper said. There are three main areas the act focuses on: public safety, creating a highrisk designation and enhancing victims’ involvement in decisions made regarding the accused. One major change would allow courts to designate people as “high-risk” so that they are held in custody and can’t be considered for release until that designation is revoked by a court. That change would override a provincial review board’s ability to grant day passes for offenders deemed
high-risk. Harper took issue with how some people in prison are given unescorted day passes despite still being a significant threat to public safety. “We’ve heard from Canadians loud and clear that something here is very wrong,” he said. The changes, once passed, will apply to people who are currently in prison.
LOOKING FOR WITNESSES
RCMP investigate fatal motorcycle crash in city Alfie Lau
A 64-year-old man is dead after the motorcycle he was riding crashed on Saturday night along Marine Way. According to Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Dave Reid, the accident occurred at approximately 5:30 p.m. as the red Ducati motorcycle was going eastbound toward the Queensborough Bridge. According to two witnesses who were in the vicinity of the crash, the motorcyclist appeared to just drive off the road and no other vehicles were involved in the accident.
Reid said the man was operating the motorcycle with a temporary permit. The motorcyclist was rushed to Royal Columbian Hospital, but he did not survive his injuries from the crash. “We’re hoping someone may have seen him along Marine Way before the accident, and we are still looking for more witnesses,” said Reid. “If you have any information, please contact the Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922.” Police had not released the name of the man as of Tuesday morning. www.twitter.com/AlfieLau
Harper said the rights of the accused and the convicted are important, but that the system should not be focussed on “theirs and only theirs.” Harper made the announcement in the company of Tri Cities politicians and crime victims, including Stacy Galt, cousin of Darcie Clarke, whose three children were killed by their father and her estranged ex-husband, Allan Schoenborn, who was
found not criminally responsible. Galt welcomed the changes. “This announcement is just wonderful. It’s an announcement that reminds the courts and the provincial review board that victims matter,” she said at the press conference. “In fact, it’s more than a reminder that victims matter. It will hopefully soon be the law.” After the announcement, Harper spoke about Patrick Brazeau while fielding questions from reporters. Brazeau, a Conservative senator, was kicked out of caucus Friday and now sits as an independent after he was charged with assault and sexual assault. “As you know I’ve removed him from caucus,” Harper said. “When Mr. Brazeau was appointed to senate, he was national chief of one of the country’s largest … aboriginal organizations. … The events we are speaking about here are very recent in nature.” A group of roughly 10 people from the Idle No More movement also gathered outside the hotel, singing, drumming and calling on the Conservative government to reverse legislation they say will negatively impact First Nations in Canada.

HIGH PRIORITY OPERATION
New task force created to deal with jump in break-ins Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
The Burnaby RCMP has created a new task force to deal with a 100 per cent increase in break-ins in Burnaby. “The protection of people’s property is one of our highest priorities,” said Chief Supt. Dave Critchley in a press release. “As such, Burnaby RCMP has no intention of allowing these crimes to continue unchallenged. In an effort to assist the members of the property crimes unit in dealing with this heavier-thanusual caseload, I am announcing the formation of a special task force, specifically mandated to address this issue.” Police have seen a significant rise in the number of break-ins, in both residential and commercial properties throughout the city. Cpl. Dave Reid, media relations officer for the Burnaby RCMP, said the rise in break-ins was hap-
Visions* The Bay* Shoppers Drug Mart* Rona* Home Outfitters* Staples* Lowe’s Canada* * not in all areas
pening across the city and not in one particular neighbourhood. “District one, which is the HastingsGilmore area, they’ve been hit pretty hard,” he said. “But this has spread all over the city. Our concern is the stats are up everywhere.” Reid said every few years, the numbers tend to go up, police respond in kind, and the numbers drop. “But then every four or five years, it happens again,” he said. Reid said residential break-ins have increased by 100 per cent, or double the number of incidents this time last year. Police do have some suspects on their radar, and they’ve released photos of the task force’s “most wanted.” According to Reid, police have not received any reports of violence during the break-ins.

Brazeau is curPress/Harris Decima, 32 per cent of rently free on bail following his arrest respondents felt the Senate should be last Thursday on assault and sexual abolished. Another one-third assault charges. The irony felt the Senate should become of this is surely not lost on an elected body. We don’t Burnaby residents who saw Burnaby NOW know what the remaining much hoopla in the media Canadians told the survey this past week (see page callers – but we suspect some said, three) when Prime Minister Stephen “what Senate?” Harper came to town to announce This week the Senate will move a tougher laws on dangerous offend-
ers. Granted Brazeau is not a dangerous offender, and has not been found guilty of the current charges, but he’s not exactly the poster boy a prime minister would want for a Conservative senator. And then there’s the ‘allowance scandal’ as it is being called. Senators who do not reside full-time in Ottawa are part of a rich pay and pension package. We’re not sure what the Senate costs taxpayers per year, but
we do know that the 105 senators each make a minimum of $132,000 per year plus thousands in expenses. If you visit the Senate website it’s not exactly a hub of activity and accomplishments. Premier Christy Clark pledged, last year, that she would bring in an elected Senate process for B.C.. That pledge might be well intentioned, but it does not address the overriding issue of whether the Senate serves any useful purpose in this day and age.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Truths about oil tankers in B.C. Dear Editor:
I suppose I’m like most people when it comes to assessing the risk of shipping oil by tanker. I want to know as much as I can about it, but it isn’t always easy to find information or, in the case of opinion editorials, a different viewpoint. Notwithstanding, I have learned some truths about oil tankers over the past year or so. I’ve learned the federal government has infrastructure that is capable of dealing with an oil spill of up to 10,000 tonnes. I’ve learned that currently about 90 tankers a year are loaded at the Burnaby pipeline terminal and that each carries more than 10 times that amount of oil. I’ve learned we are woe-

fully unprepared to deal with a major oil spill. I’ve learned that the term “oil spill cleanup” is misleading; at best, a clean up operation will capture about 10 per cent of the oil. I’ve learned that the distance to and the weather conditions at a spill site are significant factors in terms of response time and cost. I’ve learned the existing insurance coverage limit for an oil tanker spill is $1.3 billion. I’ve learned the cleanup cost of the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill was in excess of $2 billion. I’ve learned that neither man nor money could repair the damage to the Prince William Sound marine ecosystems. I’ve learned – after more than 20 years – neither can mother nature.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Oil tanker transfers risky continued from page 6
I’ve learned bitumen is heavier and more toxic than conventional oil and that the longer it is in water, the more likely it will sink. I’ve learned most spills occur when oil is transferred to or from tankers. I’ve learned that the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion will pump enough bitumen to fill a tanker a day. I’ve learned that 365 tankers a year increases the risk of an oil spill by a factor of four. I’ve learned that I’ve learned more about oil tankers than I want to. Bill Brassington, Burnaby
Memories of B.C. NDP past Dear Editor:
I’m not old enough to remember the 1990s, but I know many adults who do remember that time and how badly the NDP mismanaged the provincial economy. They also remember how Adrian Dix was fired as Glen Clark’s top aide after it was discovered that he had forged a memo and then lied about it to the RCMP. What surprises me, though, is that so many people my age are unaware of what went on in B.C. during the 1990s. That lack of awareness could have devastating consequences for this province if the NDP is elected to ruin the province all over again. So I want to say thank you to those people and organizations who are taking

steps to ensure everyone in this province is aware of what Adrian Dix is really all about and are making sure everyone is fully informed about his record in government. Failing to learn the lessons of the recent past will doom us to the same consequences suffered in the 1990s if we do not wake up and heed the warning signs that are there to be seen. Donald Leung, Burnaby
Adrian Dix not trustworthy
In my life, I have found that nothing is more important than trust. That’s why I find it very difficult to accept that NDP leader Adrian Dix, a man who knowingly forged a document in an RCMP investigation to protect his boss, former premier Glen Clark, would believe that he (Dix) is now fit to be premier of this province. I simply could not trust a man who could perpetrate such a shameful act of deceit as that of Mr. Dix, an act for which he was rightly fired. The office of the premier requires the highest level of public trust. If I cannot trust the person who is premier, and have faith in the fundamental honesty of their character, all of my other strongly held beliefs mean nothing. So for me, the upcoming provincial election comes down to honesty. And Adrian Dix has shown through his actions that he just doesn’t have it. It’s that simple.

Politics: Plenty of ‘swings’ for him, while the B.C. Liberals can’t even find a candidate (it’s also worth noting this riding elected federal Green party leader Elizabeth May). In Oak Bay-Gordon Head, noted climate change scientist Andrew Weaver is the star Green party candidate. In both ridings, a lot of votes would have to swing away from the B.C. Liberals and go to the Greens for either candidate to win, but it’s certainly possible. I’d be surprised if the B.C. Conservatives have the same potential attractiveness as the Greens. But in some pockets of the province, the party will likely do better than it did in 2009, to the detriment of the B.C. Liberals. Add it up, and there’s a decent chance of anywhere from two to a half dozen seats going to someone not
running for the NDP or the B.C. Liberals. ◆ It will be interesting to see if the B.C. Liberals can maintain internal caucus discipline in the upcoming legislative session. The party’s majority has narrowed to just four seats (plus the Speaker). Luckily for the government, there’s not expected to be a lot of votes since there won’t be a heavy legislative agenda. But there may be opportunities for the NDP, sensing there may be one too many B.C. Liberal MLAs away from the legislature, to spring the occasional trap and embarrass the government by winning votes on procedural motions. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

their platform since they have no hope of forming government. A vote for the Greens can be a protest vote of sorts. The Greens almost won a federal by-election recently in Victoria, which was supposed to be a cakewalk for the NDP. The party attracted support from the other three main federal parties. In fact, the capital region is fertile ground for the Greens, and it is where the party will likely post its strongest showing. Two ridings in particular are ones to watch.

Drivers beware: RCMP out in force on city roads Burnaby drivers should take note that the RCMP will have a targeted distracted driving enforcement campaign this month. According to an RCMP press release, in 2012, 30 per cent of motor vehicle fatalities involved distracted driving and 37 per cent of serious motor vehicle injuries involved distracted driving. Since the implementation of legislation banning the use of handheld devices in January 2010, police in British Columbia have issued 105,972 violation tickets for use of handheld electronic devices. “In the month of February, police across B.C. will be targeting drivers who operate vehicles while using a handheld device,” said Cpl. Robert McDonald of B.C. RCMP Traffic Services. “Holding a cell phone in your hand on speaker phone is an offence … and could result in a fine of $167.

Sustainability: Burnaby council is considering supporting a project on regional
food sources. Burnaby has about 600 acres of agricultural land, some of it populated by local food growers, such as the Common Ground Community Farm run by Dave Carlson, above. Coun. Sav Dhaliwal said at the meeting that he had served on Metro Vancouver’s agricultural committee in the past and the issue of local food systems had been discussed extensively. “There’s a steady decline in terms of the ratio of the food that’s currently produced locally and consumed locally versus what’s coming in from outside the province,” he said. “It’s unfortunate the B.C. government hasn’t been overly supporting local agriculture.” Coun. Pietro Calendino also spoke in favour of looking into the project. “I do my food shopping all the time and I know that every year, you find your food coming from farther and farther and newer countries,” he said. “It contributes to the greenhouse gas effect and also, the cost.” Mayor Derek Corrigan, who is chair of the regional planning agricultural committee, said Metro Vancouver had also received a presentation on the project. “It is interesting, and I
am a little concerned that the commitment by the provincial government and the agricultural land commission has not been solidified, because I think they are the major players in any consideration of how we operate a regional food system,” he said. He added the issue of food security, and locally sourced food, is a complex one. “It’s always nice to be talking about local food production and food security, but it’s the kind of
conversation that comes up when we say, ‘well, what if there’s a massive catastrophic earthquake and we depend on ourselves,’ in order to look after our agriculture,” he said. Global agriculture is also an important part of the world economy, Corrigan added. “When we look at how these food systems are working, I don’t think there’s anything really simplistic about it,” he said. jfuller-evans@ burnabynow.com View with
“In order to make this economically, environmentally and socially viable, we do have to work with other industries, other farmers, and look at building relationships and links in all of these areas,” Smith added. Representatives of the project recently asked the City of Burnaby to participate in and support it. Kent Mullinix, director of the Institute for Sustainable Horticulture at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, spoke to council about the project at the Jan. 14 council meeting, and council asked staff to prepare a report on the project and Burnaby’s possible involvement. “This has not been done before, not to this extent, not this thoroughly, not per the dimensions that we are doing it,” Mullinix said in a follow-up interview with the NOW. Mullinix, along with his colleague Arthur Fallick and teams from five other educational institutions, is working on the three-year project, which would develop a regional food system design and implementation plan for southwest B.C. The Kwantlen team is also working on an identical project in the Yukon. The teams have already undertaken two years of planning on the projects. The Yukon project is fully funded, while more than half the funds needed for the $1.5 million southwest B.C. project have been raised. Thus far, nearly $600,000 has been contributed by the six universities involved, $300,000 was donated by the Real Estate Foundation of B.C., $50,000 was donated by Vancity, and municipalities in the region have agreed to contribute more than $100,000 in total; onethird is in in-kind contributions. The potential benefits of the B.C. project include contributing to the regional economy, creating small to medium-sized businesses, creating jobs, providing food from local sources, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, conserving energy and reducing waste production, Mullinix told council. The project would include five regional districts – Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, SquamishLilloet, Powell River and the Sunshine Coast. Mullinix is asking Burnaby and other municipalities to participate by recognizing the merit of the project, assigning a liaison to work with the research team and represent the interests of the municipality, and to contribute $4,000 each year for the three years of the project.

Coin is symbol of cultures and cooperation High school student wins national design contest Moscrop Secondary student Wendy Hu has won a national design contest held by the Royal Canadian Mint. “I was really ecstatic when I found out my design won the national competition, and that my art was recognized on a national scale and appreciated,” said the Grade 12 student. The subject was multiculturalism, and Hu drew three arms forming a peace symbol, with the earth in the middle. “It’s supposed to symbolize how with unity and teamwork with different cultures, we can contribute in a positive way,” she said. Hu isn’t sure if it will appear on a coin any time soon, but the Royal Canadian Mint has the rights to use her design. Hu’s design was selected from entrants across the country in the category for 13- to 17-year-olds. As part of the prize, Hu received a coin collector’s package with a book on coins, a pure silver coin worth about $40, and a set of Canadian coins. Two representatives from the Royal Canadian Mint also visited the school on Feb. 6 and brought a coin engraving computer program so the students could try it out. They also brought an Olympic gold medal and let the students hold it for pictures. Hu thinks winning the contest was a contributing factor in her landing a Queen’s University Chancellor’s Scholarship worth $36,000. – staff reporter Jennifer Moreau

Helping hand, from Burnaby to Ecuador CLASS ACT
tudents at Burnaby Central Secondary raised $8,500 to help build a school in Ecuador. The money was presented in giant-cheque format in mid-January, when a representative from Free the Children visited the Burnaby school. When he was just 12 years old, Craig Kielburger started Free The Children to fight child labour. Since 1995, Free the Children has grown into
an international children’s rights organization, with more than 1.7 million youth involved in development and education programs in 45 countries. Those who raised the money to build the school in Ecuador were part of the school’s Global Action Against Poverty group, and the donation is for the fourth school they’ve helped build. “Students over the past years have worked very hard in fundraising events to raise these monies, and it is a celebration of their efforts,” said Monica Frank, the group’s sponsor teacher at Central. For more on Free the Children, go to www. freethechildren.com. (If you click on About Us, then Our Partners and
Supporters, and then click on Educational And Program Partners, you’ll see a photo of Burnaby school board chair Baljinder Narang, trustee Larry Hayes, and Kevin Kaardal, the new district superintendent.)
North lends a hand in effort
Central isn’t the only school helping Free the Children. Burnaby North Secondary students organized a districtwide “Mini We Day” conference on Jan. 18. We Day, another initiative from Free the Children, is a crossCanada series of free events for youth, inspiring them to be a positive force for social change.
Burnaby North students attended We Day in Vancouver and were inspired to host their own mini version. Students from other schools were invited to attend and learn about Free the Children and the international work they do to support children’s rights. According to Monica Hsieh, one of the student organizers, an estimated 150 students came out. “It went really well. We had schools such as Burnaby South and Burnaby Mountain come in,” she said. Hsieh and Burnaby North’s Free the Children executive team organized the event. The day was mostly focused on raising awareness about how people
can make positive changes in their community and fight against child poverty.

Target’s ‘Project Bacon’ is a go at Brentwood Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
Zellers at Brentwood Centre is set to close as of March 14. Approximately 150 store employees, members of the United Food and Commercial Workers’ Union, were fighting to have the new owner, Target Canada, declared a successor to Zellers
www.burnabynow.com facebook.com/BurnabyNOW twitter.com/@BurnabyNOW_news
so that the U.S.-based retailer would be forced to honour the current collective agreement. But in November, the Labour Relations Board of B.C. ruled against the union’s application, stating in its ruling that Target and Zellers are two different types of department store retailers and that the U.S. company had purchased Zellers locations primarily for real estate.

“We’re very upset,” said Kim Novak, a communications representative for the union. “We’re very sorry to see very hardworking people lose their jobs, essentially, when Target comes in in March – the store will be closing in March.” The union has started a web-based campaign at Targetfairness.ca, to garner support for Zellers employees and encourage Target to hire them at the new
locations. Target purchased 189 leases from Zellers in 2011 as part of an expansion venture code-named “Project Bacon,” according to the ruling, as well as Zellers’ pharmacy files, which were sold off, and the Cherokee brand name for its U.S. market.

is just such a paragon of perfection, having received the Fundata FundGrade A+ Rating for 2012, but alas, it has not been available for registered plans since 2005. Are there any alternatives? Of course there are. I scoured the fund universe in search of a few options, and here’s what I found: BMO Monthly Income Fund. The objective of this fund is to provide investors with a consistent level of monthly income and capital preservation. It invests in a mix of ﬁxed income and high-yielding equities, such as dividend-paying common shares and REITs. It pays investors a monthly
distribution of $0.06 per unit, which works out to an annualized yield of nearly 10%. While I largely like the fund, there is one concern: The distribution is unsustainable at the current level without signiﬁcantly eroding capital. However, for those reinvesting distributions in a nonregistered account, this isn’t as big a concern. Fidelity Monthly Income Fund. The fund, which just scored a Fundata FundGrade A+ Rating for 2012, aims for a mix of income and capital gains. To do this, the fund invests in a mix of ﬁxed-income and high-yielding equity investments. Unlike the BMO or RBC offerings, this fund will invest outside of Canada. As of Nov. 30, more than a third of the fund was in global securities. It has also been the most volatile and the most expensive, with a 2.29% MER. Despite the higher costs, returns have been strong, posting top-quartile performance for the past ﬁve years. Mawer Balanced Fund. The target asset mix of this high quality offering from Calgarybased Mawer Investment Management is a fairly typical 60% equity and 40% ﬁxed income. Unlike the other funds, which invest in individual securities, this is a fund-offunds that invests in a mix of other Mawer funds. It will invest globally, and as of Dec. 31, held more than 35% outside Canada. Despite this, volatility has largely been kept in check. The MER is very low, coming in
at 0.98%. And to top it off, the fund landed a Fundata FundGrade A+ Rating for 2012 as well. The biggest drawback to this fund is that the minimum investment is $5,000, which puts it out of reach for the smallest of investors. Stuck on RBC? No problem. Just build your own RRSP-eligible replica RBC Monthly Income Fund with a similar risk reward proﬁle. A mix of 55% RBC Bond Fund and 45% RBC Canadian Dividend Fund should provide you a return that is comparable to the RBC Monthly Income Fund with similar

embracing csr as an economic driver michael keller email@example.com We promote Corporate Social Responsibility and the Triple Bottom Line of economic, social and environmental results. It’s a key line in the Burnaby Board of Trade’s mission statement, and one the organization has always taken seriously. In that way the BBOT has always been a little bit different from most of its counterparts in other cities and communities across Canada. While other chambers of commerce and boards of trade prefer to focus on more traditional concepts of economic development, the BBOT understands that CSR and a sustainable environment equals a sustainable business environment. “Economic development isn’t only about things like taxes and transportation,” acknowledged BBOT CEO Paul Holden.
“Those things are certainly as important as they have ever been, but successful companies know the importance of giving back to their community and protecting their environment – for their customers and also because it’s the right thing to do. Our job as a board of trade is to support that kind of progress and try to lead by example as best we can.” The centrepiece of the BBOT’s sustainability efforts is the recently launched Pledge for a Sustainable Community (bbotpledge.ca), an online resource designed to help businesses reduce their environmental impact while receiving a little bit of brand promotion and publicity. With the goal of having one hundred organizations take the Pledge in the first year, the program is already exceeding expectations with over sixty companies of all sizes having already taken
the Pledge in the first three months. The BBOT has also begun looking at the issue of family-friendly workplaces via its Social Development Committee. After sending out a survey to its membership, it became clear that the family-friendly issue was one at the top of mind for many local businesses and employees. As a result, the BBOT presented its first Family-Friendly Organization award at its Burnaby Business Excellence Awards Gala in November, and just recently the Board partnered with the Surrey Board of Trade to host a Business & Families First Dialogue with the aim of creating new policy recommendations on the subject. Also new over the last year, the Burnaby Board of Trade launched Access, its student career development program. By providing senior post secondary students continued on pg. 2

Is an RRSP the best investment for you?
Is Canada’s anti-spam legislation too strict? Canada’s proposed anti-spam legislation (CASL) is worrying, according to the Canadian Chamber of Commerce (CCC) and numerous businesses and business organizations across Canada. There are many criticisms of the legislation, but primarily the concern seems to be its far-reaching or overly broad nature. According to the CCC, CASL, as it is currently written, will hurt local economies, stifle innovation, and will fail to adequately solve the problem of nuisance and/ or fraudulent messaging that it seeks to address. While few will deny that spam is a serious and legitimate problem, the CCC claims the approach taken by CASL will have a detrimental effect on common business practices and legitimate commercial electronic messages. They say that the broad scope of CASL will impact every single business, association, club, charitable organization and foundation
that conducts activities in Canada (with some very narrow exceptions), and that the legislation will impose massive compliance costs on businesses that, in many cases, are ill-equipped to undertake them. Without significant modifications and exceptions, says the CCC, the legislation will impede commercial speech, an essential ingredient of market competitiveness and lead to reduced competition and higher prices. To address the issue the Canadian Chamber has requested that local boards of trade and chambers of commerce write letters to Industry Canada and their local Members of Parliament. While stating their support for government efforts to curb spam, the CCC is calling for legislation that will be more effective while still being conducive to a healthy business environment. According to the Canadian Chamber, the law could come into effect sometime later in 2013. !
Every year many of us automatically deposit as much as we can afford into a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) account. For a large portion of people, RRSPs are a great way to save for retirement – you get a tax deduction now by reducing your current income tax liability while your savings will grow tax free until you withdraw the money. However, if you’re saving for something other than retirement, using a Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA) on its own or to complement your RRSPs may be the best way to reach your financial goals now and for your future. TFSAs provide easy access to your money. You pay no tax on growth within the account and when money is withdrawn, you do not lose the contribution room. If you expect your income to grow substantially in the future, investing in a Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA) now and using your RRSP contribution room later in life will have a greater impact. Consider the following benefits from investing in a TFSA: · If you have a pension plan at work, your RRSP contribution room will be limited. Use a TFSA to shelter your savings plan from taxes. · If you’re investing in high risk investments, consider holding these continued from pg. 1
with the opportunity to attend workshops and networking events, as well as meet and learn from business leaders, the BBOT hopes to provide an edge for those struggling to enter the professional work force. “As a board of trade, the best way we
within your TFSA. Any earnings can be withdrawn tax free. · Borrow against your savings by using your TFSA as loan collateral. · Consider moving non-registered investments into a TFSA to shelter the income from taxes. · Over the age of 71 and can no longer invest in RRSPs? The only age restriction for TFSAs is that you must be over the age of 18 to open an account. · Worried about claw back on your CPP/ OAS? TFSA withdrawals do not affect your retirement income benefits. TFSAs are very effective savings vehicles on their own or in conjunction with your RRSP. Approximately 50% of Canadians have not yet taken advantage of TFSAs, are you one of them? Make the most of your investments.

can make a big impact is through our connections and influence in the business community. That’s why we have created programs like Access and the Pledge – to bring businesses together for common goals that will be significant on a macro level,” said Holden. !

Businesses approach their sustainability efforts differently For those just starting their sustainability journey it often starts with a person or a group of likeminded colleagues who are interested in doing something to lower their footprint. Typically they might start with an audit of their paper, water, energy, travel, waste use areas and strategize a plan to reduce their use. Or they might focus on one particular thing. For example, for BBOT Pledge Taker Charlie’s Chocolate Factory, it started with a single person wanting to recycle. “When I first started we had a cardboard bin, nothing more. I couldn’t bring myself to throw even a scrap of paper in the garbage so I had a cardboard box that I filled and took home to empty,” says Ellen of Charlie’s Chocolate Factory. “Now, 10 years later, we have the entire staff recycling more than just paper! Everything including plastics, cardboard, metal cans and paper is collected and taken to the Burnaby Depot almost once a week while Ink cartridges, pop bottles and compost go other places.”
Others such as ACT– Autism Community Training installed a vermicomposter for fruit, vegetable, coffee grounds, and tea leaf waste. And then there are those such as Computers for Schools, Eeko Courier, Hemlock Printers, Pacific Blue Cross, Burnaby Association for Community Inclusion, and Ritchie Brothers who were ready to take the leap into the Climate Smart workshop which helps businesses measure and reduce their carbon footprint while cutting costs. Whether you’ve fully integrated sustainability into your business strategy or are just starting, drop us a line and let us know what you’re doing and why. We’d love to hear from you.

Fresh approach at Osaka Alfie Lau
Le Nguyen spent nine years training under his uncle at a Japanese restaurant to learn the art of making great sushi. And when the time came to open his own space, he scoured Vancouver and Burnaby to find just the right spot. He eventually settled on Edmonds Street where, in December 2010, he opened Osaka Island Japanese Restaurant. “I could see how this area is growing,” said Nguyen. “The swimming pool is opening soon, there are so many new apartments and there are so many people moving to this area.” For more than two years, Nguyen, along with wife Phuong and nephew Ryan, have steadily built the business up, but the emphasis hasn’t changed. “I make sure we buy the freshest ingredients and we prepare everything in-house every day,” said Nguyen. “That’s what I learned from my uncle and that’s what I’m
trying to teach Ryan.” Nguyen said he takes a special satisfaction from watching his customers finish off their dishes and he’s always looking for ways to improve. “If someone doesn’t finish, I ask them why,” said Nguyen. “Usually, it’s because they want to take it home for later or for lunch.” The restaurant, which seats 56 people, is open six days a week, closed on Mondays. As for the name of the restaurant, Nguyen knows that Osaka isn’t an island, but he wanted to have Osaka in the name. When he discovered Osaka Japanese Restaurant was already in use, he added Island to the name because it brought back the good memory of his successful escape from Vietnam years ago. (His story was profiled last month in the Burnaby NOW.) Osaka Island Japanese Restaurant is located at 7617 Edmonds St. To order takeout or make a reservation, call 778-3978884.

A fresh start: Alex Bohl, in white against Oregon State, opened the Pacific Northwest Collegiate field lacrosse season for SFU with a game-high seven points in a win over Western Washington on Saturday.
Field Clan opens with wins Tom Berridge sports editor
Simon Fraser University opened its Pacific Northwest Collegiate Lacrosse League season with a pair of wins at home. The Clan club opened Saturday with a 20-7 victory over Western Washington, before com-
ing back to score an 11-8 win over Oregon State on Sunday. Freshman midfielder Alex Bohl showed the way for No. 21-ranked Clan in the conference opener, garnering a game-high seven points, including a pair of goals. Senior attack Colton Dow led all scorers with five goals. In the later game, senior
Eric Ransom led the way with two goals and three assists. Dow also chipped in with four points, including a hat trick. SFU trailed 2-0 after the first quarter and 6-3 at the half, before exploding for six goals to open the third quarter. Sophomore midfielder Sam Clare scored off the opening faceoff. But it took
five unanswered goals in the quarter before SFU took its first lead. The Clan opened the final frame with a pair of goals, extending its scoring run to 7-0 before Oregon State managed a replay. Freshman Chris Pond recorded his first collegiate goal, tallying the 7-7 Lacrosse Page 31
Playoff week in the BurWest district is shaping up to be a dandy. The Burnaby South Rebels wrapped up second place in league play last Thursday with a win over fourth-place New Westminster, but not before learning a valuable lesson. The New West Hyacks surrendered a 24-13 firstquarter lead, but then outscored the Rebels over the next three quarters in a desperate attempt to rally. Grade 11 Rebels guard Taylor Smith got South off to a torrid start, potting 12 of his game-high 27 points in the opening 10 minutes of play. South’s 6-6 Dejan Posavljak got the better of Inderjit Singh, outscoring the Hyacks’ post 20-17 in an entertaining battle between the two big men. Sylvester Appiah led the Hyacks with 20 points, while Rick Maghera had 17 second-half points off the bench, including a pair of three-pointers in the final quarter for New West. “We have to make sure not to let these guys shoot and to keep them off the boards,” said Smith after the game. “But I still think we can correct a bunch of things and get better.” On Friday, the regular
season champion Byrne Creek Bulldogs also learned a lesson in an exhibition matchup against the No. 4-ranked AA St. Thomas More Knights. The No. 10 AAA Bulldogs allowed STM a 125 first-quarter start before turning up the defensive pressure on home court against the Burnaby independent. Thomas Abraham got things started with seven of his team-high 12 points and three steals in the second quarter. Nathal George kept Byrne Creek on the boil in the third quarter, with eight points, as Byrne Creek outscored the Knights 39-21 over the two periods. But, in a similar scenerio to the first quarter, STM outscored the Bulldogs 157 in the final quarter to rally from a 16-point defict to close to within a bucket of the home team on a couple of occasions in the final minutes. Ian Soriano all but settled the outcome with a big three-pointer off an inbounds pass late in the contest. “Our intensity wasn’t that good,” said George after the game. “Never settle for the win, even when you’re up by 20 points because they’re always Hoops Page 30
Clan women upset No. 4 Vikings, but need help to finish first Tom Berridge sports editor
Big games off the bench helped Simon Fraser University pull off a key upset in Great Northwest conference women’s basketball. The Clan avenged an earlier loss to the first-place Western Washington Vikings, turning the tables on the No. 4-ranked NCAA Division II team 74-59 at home on Saturday. Junior guard Marie-Line Petit and senior Carla Wyman had big nights off the bench, scoring 13 points apiece to hand Western Washington its first conference loss and help the varsity Clan move to within a game of the front-running Vikings. Petit was a perfect five-for-five from the floor, including three
from downtown in just 15 minutes of floor time. Katie Lowen led the Clan with 17 points, including four longrange bombs and three-for-four from the charity stripe. Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe and Erin Chambers also scored in double figures for the Clan, netting 11 points apiece. Trailing by six points midway through the first half, Petit scored eight points in a five-minute span to give the home team a lead. The junior guard closed out the first half with a trey and a layup to give Simon Fraser a 3532 lead at halftime. SFU game out guns blazing to open the second half. Kristina Collins, Wyman and Chambers each sunk three-pointers on consecutive trips down the court to
help build a 19-point advantage with eight minutes left to play. But Western Washington rallied, getting the deficit down to just six points, before Lowen drained her fourth three of the night to re-establish a doubledigit lead. The win improved the Clan’s conference record to 10-2, with five games left on the regularseason schedule. “We need to be ready and not rest on any laurels here,” said Clan head coach Bruce Langford in an SFU press release. “We also need Western to lose another game in order for us to finish first, and we would like that.” This week, the Clan women on the road for a pair of games SFU Page 31

MAJOR MIDGET HOCKEY
Giants leave North Island reeling in weekend wake The Northwest Giants continued its dominanceby-committee march through the B.C. major midget hockey league. The Giants knocked off the North Island Silvertips 4-1 on Saturday and an 8-1 on Sunday in a weekend sweep in Nanaimo. Eric Margo had a goal and two assists in Saturday’s win, the club’s 30th this season, while Colton Kerfoot matched his teammate with a similar three-point game in Sunday’s one-sided win. Kerfoot and Jarid Lukosevicius both had a goal and a helper in the opener. Nick Lyons tallied his first two goals of the season in Sunday’s victory. Major Kaila and Margo also chipped in with a goal and an assist. Jackson Cressey had three helpers, including his
30th assist of the year, in the win. Jansen Harkins, David Begert, Trevor McLean, and Zach Landon also scored single goals for the Giants this weekend. Rookie netminder Bo Didur kept his unbeaten record intact for another week, racking up his 19th win without a defeat in Saturday’s win. Liam Smith got the victory on Sunday. The win keeps the Giants eight points ahead of the Cariboo Cougars in the race for first place. Third-place Okanagan Rockets are a full 14 points in arrears with two games in hand on the front-running Giants. Former Burnaby Winter Club product Matthew Barzal leads the scoring race with 97 points, including a league-high 68 assists. Barzal and Cariboo’s
Liam Blackburn share the goal-scoring lead with 29 goals apiece. Barzal is currently averaging more than three points per game in league play for the Northeast Chiefs and is on pace to surpass former Giants’ forward Alex Kerfoot’s 2011 total of 108 points. This weekend, the Chiefs have a home-andhome engagement with the Valley West Hawks, while the Giants are at home to the last-place Kootenay Ice. The Chiefs play the Hawks at Planet Ice in Coquitlam on Sunday, Feb. 17 at 11:45 a.m. GametimesfortheGiants two-game home stand are 7:45 p.m. on Saturday and 9:30 a.m. Sunday, both at the Burnaby Winter Club. – tberridge@burnabynow. com

hungry to come back.” STM head coach Aaron Mitchell also came away with a lesson for his boys. “We can’t have a third quarter like that,” Mitchell said. “I’m proud we battled back, but going forward, we can’t go to sleep for four or five minutes on the clock and hope to get back in it.” The parity between first and fourth in the BurWest should keep fans of the high school game on the edge of their seats when the final-four playoffs tip off at Byrne Creek today (Wednesday) at 5:15 p.m. The banner and Lower Mainland qualifying finals will be played on Friday, beginning at 3:30 p.m.
