ANIMAL RIGHTS

Shark fins taken off city’s menu Burnaby will not institute a shark fin ban, saying it’s a federal responsibility Stefania Seccia staff reporter

Shark fin sales will continue to be legal in Burnaby as council approved a staff report on Monday night, recommending against a shark fin ban. Last June, council asked staff to compile a report and make a recommendation on the issue after animal rights activists appeared as a delegation and held a demonstration outside city hall. Although the staff report is in support of banning shark fin sales in principle, it states that it is not under municipal jurisdiction to regulate. “Shark finning is considered inhumane and negatively impacting global shark populations, particularly those species designated as endangered or threatened,” director of finance Denise Jorgensen states in the report. “Despite this practice, the adoption of a city bylaw to prohibit the possession, sale and trade of shark fin is not recommended.” Instead, Jorgensen said the federal government is the authority that can and should regulate a shark fin ban. “The federal government holds responsibility for importation, fisheries and oceans,” the report states. “Canadian law prohibits shark finning in our waters and also protects wildlife globally. “To effectively regulate shark fins and stem the market supplied by shark finning, senior levels of government will need to enact prohibiting legislation.” The report also notes how the Community Charter has no provisions outlining that city staff can seize products Fins Page 8

Scorched: A Sunday morning fire at an apartment complex at 3526 Smith Ave. has left more than 100 people homeless.

Burnaby firefighters spent most of Sunday and Monday putting out hotspots. The residents attended a Monday meeting at a local hotel to find out what assistance they can access, as many of them have no insurance.

More than 100 people are homeless after a three-alarm fire destroyed a fourstorey apartment complex at 3526 Smith Ave. early Sunday morning. Many of those residents attended a Monday morning meeting at the Accent Inn in Burnaby, where local emergency officials briefed them on what help they could offer. According to Sue Walters, 60, who was living at the apartment for the past two years while she was on a waiting list for other accommodation, that meeting wasn’t a lot of help. “I lost everything and all they’re offer-

VISION FOR NEIGHBOURHOOD INCLUDES MORE JOBS, A COMMUNITY GARDEN AND MEDICAL SERVICES

Turnout sparks hope for Edmonds renewal Stefania Seccia staff reporter

A struggling community organization had its hopes raised when 170 locals showed up to share their ideas, dreams and vision for the Edmonds area. The Edmonds Business and Community Association and Edmonds Community School hosted a town hall meeting on Feb. 12. It was an effort to get new members for the association, to share information about upcoming community changes, and to find out what residents want to see happen. A memorable moment was when a father and his son went on stage to address

the crowd, and the 10-year-old boy talked about how if his grandma gets sick again he wants a medical clinic close by, according to Joyce Rostron, former president of the association. A neighbourhood hub, more employment, affordable housing, a community garden, farmers’ market, and more momand-pop shops were other ideas brought forward from the attendees in a visioning exercise done at the beginning of the meeting. Groups were then encouraged to share what they came up with, with the rest in attendance. At a time when membership has been dipping, Rostron was encouraged to see a

gymnasium packed with residents wanting to get involved. “I’m really happy with the turn out,” Rostron added. “In the beginning I wasn’t sure how many would come, but I thought whoever comes needs to be here.” Also in attendance were city staff, including employees from the parks and recreation department and community planner Karin Hung, who made a presentation. City planning staff said there will be further consultations with the public, as projects such as the Value Village redevelopment goes forward. The meeting may also help spark a rise

in membership for the association, which has experienced a lack of interest in the last few years, according to Rostron. “Memberships flatlined, dropped off, and we’re trying to rebuild it,” she said. “Now’s the time.” Rostron said the association will do the best it can to garner interest from local businesses and attendees from Tuesday night’s meeting. “There’s so many things happening that we need a platform where people can speak up to make it better for everybody,” she added. Rostron plans to have an annual Edmonds Page 5

After more than 10 years of living in a closeknit community, one family may have to pack up and go because of a proposed pathway.

RCMP find 10 sticks of dynamite in highrise Alfie Lau

staff reporter

A potentially dangerous situation involving dynamite sticks was defused Monday night by Burnaby RCMP members. Acting on a tip from a worker doing an upgrade on an empty condo unit on the 11th floor of a 39-storey apartment building in the 4200-block of Grange Street near Metrotown, Burnaby RCMP obtained a drug search warrant for the unit. Just after 8 p.m., police officers discovered a duffel bag containing 10 sticks of the crystallized dynamite and immediately called in explosives experts. The explosives were deemed a risk, so police officers decided to clear the building, with many of the residents being taken to the Bonsor Recreation Complex. “The entire building had to be evacuated, and that means we were looking at

over 100 people who had to be evacuated,” said Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Dave Reid. The explosives experts disposed of the dynamite by taking it to nearby Central Park, where it was burned. They also found several small homemade explosive devices in the apartment – Reid said they were small containers containing carbon dioxide which could explode if thrown into a fire – which they removed and safely disposed of. When it was safe for the drug warrant to be executed, police realized the apartment appeared to be a cocaine packaging and distribution centre. Police seized large amounts of cocaine, guns and money. “No arrests have been made. We are still looking for the individual who was renting this place out,” said Reid. “We don’t know where he is, and the investigation is ongoing.” The residents were allowed back into the building just before midnight.

District looks at two-week break Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The Burnaby school district is considering moving to a two-week spring break, and members of the public are invited to voice their opinions on the matter. The district is hosting a public consultation session on Thursday, Feb. 21, at 7 p.m., at the Schou Education Centre, 4041 Canada Way. There is also an online survey for parents and district staff to fill out on the school district website, at www. sd41.bc.ca. Many Lower Mainland school districts have already switched from a one-week break to two weeks - in Vancouver’s case, to save money - but Burnaby and New Westminster are the only remaining districts with a one-week holiday. School board chair Baljinder Narang thinks the two-week break is a great opportunity for families, but she did have some concerns. “I do worry about parents who do have challenges, who may not be in a position to take an extra week off, child-care arrangements have to be made, so there are all these big-picture things that worry me,” she said. “I’m hoping families will come out with their

concerns.” The Burnaby school district estimates that moving to a two-week break would save $250,000 annually, which could offset projected funding shortfalls. “Given that we have a shortfall of $6.6 million in the coming year and $7.6 million in 2014/15, (the savings) will go towards that for sure,” Narang said. The idea for Burnaby to move to a two-week break came up in December, during discussions between Metro Vancouver school board chairs and superintendents. According to the district, the move would benefit families with one parent working in one district but with kids attending school in another city, or two family members who work in different districts. The Education Ministry still requires that students get the same amount of instructional time, so other districts have added eight minutes to each day for elementary students and nine minutes for secondary students, and Burnaby would likely do the same if the break were extended. According to Narang, and based on her attendance during talks with other districts, there haven’t been

any negative impacts. “Nobody talked about disadvantages,” she said. “They found they had no significant difference allowing that two-week break. In fact, other districts are reporting students coming back more refreshed.” The challenge is for Burnaby teachers to cover the same curriculum with the time changes, Narang added. The district has to submit its proposed calendar for the 2013/14 school year to the Education Ministry by March 31, so Narang

is hoping to wrap up the consultation process by the end of February. After the Feb. 21 public consultation, and after the surveys are gathered, staff will review the results and prepare a report for the school trustees, who will likely vote on the issue at the March 26 school board meeting. If the board decides to move to a two-week break, the earliest it could be implement that would be March 2014.

Next on the list is facilitating another community meeting and gathering new potential members for the association’s future.

change course. Other recent decisions by the Conservatives have prompted equal or greater public vitriol, but the government has stuck to its guns. Elimination of the long-form census and removing federal Fisheries Act protections with an omnibus budget bill were met with almost universal revulsion, yet the Conservatives would not blink and continue to stand firm. It’s more likely that Nicholson, et al. finally foresaw what even casual Charter nerds were scream-

ing: that this law would be struck down at its first court challenge and every one after. If public opposition really did make the difference in this rare instance, big kudos are owed to the Internet activists and privacy advocates who kept the issue front and centre. They might have saved us from a fundamental change in the relationship between our government and the people it serves – one with snooping where privacy used to be.

Rail, smart meters (not so smart), and the embarrassing exposure by the auditor general, whom they didn’t want to rehire. I can’t turn on the TV without seeing the premier every half hour spouting propaganda at enormous expense, probably to taxpayers. Russ Leach, Burnaby

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Time to abolish the Senate Dear Editor:

Re: Senate needs more than just an election, editorial, Burnaby NOW, Feb. 13. Prime Minister Stephen Harper has been pressing ahead with legislation to implement a nine-year, non-renewable term limit on senators. A term appointment would ensure a snappy turnover of Senate seats. These vacancies would allow a prime minister to fill them with people of the right political stripe. The proposal for term appointments of senators is a blatant ploy by the prime minister’s office to gain full control over the Senate. Even so-called senatorial elections in the provinces would simply establish a vote-ranked list of candidates. The prime minister would retain the right to go down the list to pick an “elected” candidate of the right political stripe (not necessarily the top voted candidate). So rather than bear the cost of a neutered Senate, we should simply abolish the upper chamber. At least we have the option of voting out the scoundrels in the House of Commons. Derek Wilson, via email

Environmental leadership Dear Editor:

Last week a gathering of practicing engineers and UBC engineering students were addressed by Jim Shepard, former CEO of Canfor, who in June 2011 was

appointed as senior policy advisor to Premier Christy Clark. His first message was that when a system is not functioning properly one first finds out what its present state is, and then determines what you would like its state to be. Then you figure out how to get there. Applying this to the current situation, we find our climate is one that is heading out of control, and that what we want is to return to previous conditions and a sustainable environment. Expanding the oil and gas industries and building oil and gas pipelines are exactly the wrong thing to do. They will hasten global warming and will make the oceans even more acidic. The money spent on them will be billions of dollars and those putting in that investment will expect to get profits for many decades to come. The long-term jobs they would bring would be few, raising the employment level by perhaps 0.1 per cent, an amount that is barely significant. The society we want is one which has a long-term sustainability, one that uses far less oil and gas, one in which everyone is adequately fed and living in a warm home with intellectual nourishment. It would eliminate the rat race that most people suffer; it would be much quieter and more civilized. The same billions of dollars the oil and gas industry wants to spend on oil and gas could get us to this state and provide lots of “green” jobs in the process. This will require government to provide leadership and incentives since the neo-liberal policies so loved by the plutocracy will not get us there. Who is willing to lead us there? David Huntley, Burnaby

Kinder Morgan: Yes or no? continued from page 6

which it’s been occurring. That’s a lot different than building a pipeline through untouched pristine wilderness and sending tankers through waters they’ve never travelled. After all, Vancouver’s harbour is a working harbour. Its most iconic features, it can be argued, are those two giant piles of yellow sulphur on a North Shore dock – hardly the same kind of visual associated with Douglas Channel near Kitimat. The debate on the Kinder Morgan project is really just getting started. I suspect it will lack the emotions attached to the Northern Gateway pipeline, and the environmental movement will have a harder time marshalling widespread opposition

to it. Nevertheless, there will be opposition. Some local mayors – notably Burnaby’s Derek Corrigan and Vancouver’s Gregor Robertson – are adamantly against it, as are some First Nations, who seem to have a de facto veto over industrial development anyway, courtesy of certain court rulings. It will be fascinating to see how the NDP, should it win the election this May, handles this issue. The party was quick to denounce the Northern Gateway pipeline, taking a position that reflected the majority of public opinion. But the Kinder Morgan project is a more sensitive one for the party, since its activist members no doubt oppose the project, but to last more than one term in

government it must ensure it’s not seen as anti-business. The New Democrats also have to be wary of joining with the anti-fracking crowd, since any moratorium on the controversial practice will have a dramatic and negative impact on government revenues, which could be used to satisfy at least part of the long wish list its constituents likely have. So it’s easy to say “no” all the time to all kinds of controversial developments. But whichever party wins the next election, it will find itself forced to say “yes” to a few of them. Protest rallies and demonstrations are easy to pull off. Governing without enough money coming in is not.

ruling. If the appeal is successful, it could set a precedent in giving municipalities more power. “I hope the Toronto situation changes,” Coun.

Dan Johnston said Monday night. “I hope citizens out there think twice before eating shark fin soup.” An estimated 73 million sharks are finned every

year. The fins are controversially harvested by cutting them off the shark and then dropping the animal back into the ocean to bleed to death.

for analysis and verification, which would be necessary after many treatments render the fin unidentifiable. “Enforcement of a bylaw banning shark fin will be ineffective due to a lack of local authority to seize samples, the current level of success in identifying shark with DNA analysis and the inability of the DNA analysis to identify fin,” the report states. “A bylaw would likely have some effect as an educational tool although any public expectations for enforcement could not be met.” The finance department’s report will set Burnaby apart as many other municipalities across the province and country have supported shark fin bans through bylaws. In the last two years, Port Moody, North Vancouver, Maple Ridge, Coquitlam, New Westminster, White Rock, Abbotsford, Nanaimo and Toronto enacted shark fin ban bylaws. However, Toronto’s bylaw was challenged and struck down by an Ontario Superior Court ruling last November. “Council has received … a legal opinion regarding city authority to enact a bylaw to prohibit the sale, possession and consumption of shark fins,” Jorgensen states in the report. Staff also reviewed the actual sales and distribution that occurs within Burnaby’s boundaries. “Five restaurants and five herbal stores were found to include shark fin in their trade,” according to the report. “This represents less than one per cent of both restaurants and retail stores in Burnaby.” Despite a small pocket of sales in Burnaby, the city received hundreds of e-petitions last September calling for a combined effort by Vancouver, Richmond and Burnaby to prohibit shark fin sales. Since the issue arose last summer, Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan has been reluctant to involve the city in a shark fin ban because he says it’s beyond its scope to regulate – but not beyond the province or federal government’s. Everyone agrees the practice of shark finning is inhumane, Corrigan said at Monday night’s council

meeting, but “our powers are limited”. Council said it will monitor the situation in Toronto because that city may appeal the shark fin

at (the home),” said Rick McGowan, a neighbour to the family for the past 12 years. “We also believe there are higher priority needs that should move forward ahead of this project, namely a crosswalk on Chaffey and Sardis, and a sidewalk on the east side of Chaffey between Grange and Sardis. “I’m a bit conflicted over this because I want a safer bike route to the school, but the path needs to be part of a bigger plan for safer bike routes in the area.” McGowan, who is also the Green party candidate for the area, has submitted a proposal to the city on behalf of his group, the Metrotown Area Green Improvement Coalition. The proposal outlines the need for a community garden, composting sites and for the city not to sell the disputed land, as it could be valuable for future development of affordable housing units. “The affordable housing provided by these two cityowned lots has contributed to the completeness of our community,” McGowan

states in the coalition’s proposal. “I do not know what my neighbours pay in rent, but my family and I have benefitted from their presence in the community.” Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan said the city sometimes helps tenants relocate to another city-owned home, but ultimately they’re not in the business of being a landlord. “Everybody who moves in a house owned by the city knows it’s temporary,”

Corrigan said. “The rent, policy and information reflect it. It’s not a longterm rental.” Last week, the city hosted an open house at the elementary school to share information and receive feedback from residents. In attendance were city staff, an RCMP officer and Coun. Colleen Jordan. Jordan said residents have come to her and asked if the path is really necessary for the area. She also

echoed Corrigan’s stance on city-owned rental properties being temporary. Residents can still submit concerns and suggestions regarding the proposed path for city staff consideration by Feb. 28. A staff report on the issue is expected in March. To contact the city regarding the plan, email johannes.schumann@burn aby.ca, or send letters to 4949 Canada Way, Burnaby, B.C., V5G 1M2.

me.” Fex said he remembers Sunday morning vividly, as flames and black smoke were coming up through the floorboards. “The floor was burning underneath me and there was black smoke coming through so fast,” said Fex. “I couldn’t see more than 10 feet in front of me, and I knew I had to get out of there as quick as possible.” Fex, who stayed with friends on Sunday night after the fire, had to take the day off work Monday to attend the meeting and he expects to start looking for a new place to stay later this week. Emergency workers gave each of the residents a $50 clothing voucher to use at Wal-Mart and Fex said that was where he was headed. Fex added he was lucky that he kept his tools in his work van, which didn’t sustain any damage from the fire. “I’ll find a place,” he said. “I have to start over, but that’s the way it is.” As of Monday morning, there were no reports of any human lives lost in the fire. However, several pets were trapped in the building and are believed to have died in the fiery blaze that had Burnaby firefighters spending most of Sunday putting out hot spots in the woodframe complex. The fire occurred just after midnight on Sunday and Burnaby fire investigators are looking into how the fire started. The building, which is approximately 50 years old, did not have a sprinkler system. According to Burnaby Fire Department acting assistant chief Rick Weir, there were 41 firefighters who fought the blaze and the department utilized seven engines, three ladder trucks, a rescue truck and a

command unit. Weir said at least 15 people were brought down by the ladder trucks. “It was a huge fire for our department,” said Weir. “We had to call people from home to work on the trucks.” Weir said the department had to deploy a truck on Monday to the apartment to make sure the smouldering building didn’t catch on fire again. “The third floor collapsed into the second floor

Fire: Local resident Susan Walters lost everything in Sunday’s fire. and the second floor collapsed into the first floor,” said Weir. “There has been no visible flames, but we’ll keep on monitoring the situation.” Weir said Burnaby fire investigators and Burnaby RCMP investigators are looking into the cause of the fire. Cpl. Dave Reid of the Burnaby RCMP told the Burnaby NOW on Tuesday morning that RCMP fire investigators are treating the fire as “suspicious in nature, simply due to the sheer severity of the fire.” “We don’t know what caused this fire and the way we investigate this is we have to treat it as suspicious until it’s proven not to be suspicious,” said Reid. Mike Burtwell has lived in the building for 10

months and said he was one of the first people to realize the building was on fire. “I heard some crumbling, a crunching sound on the south side, and I only had enough time to grab my wallet and my cellphone,” said Burtwell. Burtwell said many of the residents had complained about the lack of heat in the building and to combat the winter chill, were using space heaters. But because the building was old, there weren’t many electrical outlets in each unit, meaning their circuit breakers would often be overloaded. Walters agreed, saying a lot of the wiring was old and the fire alarm that did go off on Sunday was very faint. “I don’t think the emergency lights came on either,” said Walters. The Salvation Army Metrotown at 6125 Nelson Ave. is coordinating donations of household items and cash from the public to assist the people impacted by the fire. Burnaby-Deer Lake MLA Kathy Corrigan is also accepting donations at her office at 150 - 5172 Kingsway. Corrigan said she has talked with Liberals Shirley Bond, Rich Coleman and Moira Stilwell about fasttracking any applications from residents to get replacement birth certificates and other documentation. Corrigan also said residents can use her office address as an interim mailing address. The complex where the fire occurred has been in the news previously, as in March, 2009, Sudeshna Nath, 60, died of her injuries after another fire in the same building. Sudeshna’s 19-year-old son, Ravi, also suffered serious burns in that fire. An eight-year-old boy was also seriously hurt in the fire.

ROTARY CLUB MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Jim has never missed a meeting Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

While the Rotary Club of Burnaby is a local organization, its contributions span the globe. Rotary Canada is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, and though the Rotary Club of Burnaby hasn’t been around that long – it started in 1947 – the members have years of fond memories of their time with the charitable association. Jim Grant, a former family doctor, joined the local club in 1962. “It was a nice friendly group of people, and they made me very welcome at the time, and I just kept going ever since,” Grant says. He was recently awarded a 50-year certificate for never missing a meeting, he adds. Even when travelling around the world, he has found a club wherever he’s staying and attended meetings there. “I found it very helpful for getting to know the people in another area as well as the Burnaby area,” he says. But the international organization shares the world with its members in other ways, too – namely, by giving them opportunities to be of service to people in other countries. “I think it’s important for a couple of reasons. One is, it helps local people understand what’s going on in the world and it shows us things that we can do to help other people’s lives,” Grant said. “And I found it fairly helpful to get to know the members in Burnaby.” For Grant, one of the most memorable projects taken on by the Burnaby club is the club foot project, which started more than a decade ago, he says. The club raised the funds to send an orthopedic surgeon to India to operate on children with the congenital condition, according to Grant. “The club foot project was the big one,” he says.

The club is a great place to meet people interested in helping others, according to another member, Salim Lalani. “Interestingly, it seems that people who join such civic clubs, they are considerate, for one,” he says. “They are basically nice people, and you meet like-minded people.” Lalani, who was club president from 2003 to 2004, was the youngest member when he joined in 1985. A customer at his autobody shop told him he would only pay Lalani if he joined Rotary, he says. “I repaired this guy’s car,” Lalani says, laughing, “and he would only pay me if I joined the club, and he deducted my fees from what he was going to pay me.” Lalani started out in vocational services – helping to arrange Adventures in Citizenship, sending high school students to Ottawa to attend Parliament. Current president Roger Silva is a much newer member – he joined two and a half years ago, he says. Silva was impressed by the depth of experience and the scope of the work being done by the club, he says. The club currently has 54 members, according to Silva. “There are a lot of members with a lot of experience in this club,” Silva says. “We have a lot of international and national and local projects in this club, so that’s what really appealed to me.” Many of the projects focus on helping people get on their feet, such as a pig farm in Indonesia that was established to help families earn an income to cover costs for children with hearing problems, he says. The club has also helped establish a sheep farm in Mexico, to help low-income families, he adds. But the club also offers a lot of direct support, such as helping sexually abused children in South Africa and providing cataract surgery for people in India, according to Silva.

Giving back: The president of the Rotary Club of Burnaby, Roger Silva, left, and

longtime member Jim Grant recently attended a club meeting at the Riverway Clubhouse. Rotary Canada is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.

While Silva is partial to the Rotary Club of Burnaby, he says he hopes anyone interested in Rotary will get involved with his or her local branch. “I do encourage any person that is able to join, regardless of the club, to join Rotary and help those less fortunate and get involved, get engaged,” he says. The City of Burnaby honoured the

Rotary Club of Burnaby as well as two other local clubs, the Rotary Club of Burnaby-Deer Lake and the Rotary Club of Burnaby-Metrotown, at Monday’s council meeting. Mayor Derek Corrigan declared Feb. 23, the 108th anniversary of Rotary worldwide, as Rotary Day in Burnaby. jfuller-evans@burnabynow.com

Wedding

Tips for trying on wedding gowns Many brides-to-be look forward to the day when they visit a bridal salon and are able to try on gowns for the first time. There are certain tips that can make the day go much more smoothly and potentially reduce the amount of time it may take to find the perfect gown. ✤ Wear a supportive, well constructed strapless bra or corset in your correct size. If you will be wearing a petticoat, also have the right size available. ✤ Go without face makeup when trying on gowns so they remain clean.

✤ Try to wear your hair similar to the style you have in mind for your wedding. ✤ Note that the size of the wedding gown you will wear is typically one to two sizes larger than your day-to-day clothes. Proper measurements can be matched to designers’ size charts. ✤ It’s best to limit the number of people with whom you shop to 1 or 2 trusted friends or family members. An entourage can be confusing. ✤ It’s always better to order a slightly larger gown and leave room for alterations if you are between sizes. ✤

Wedding

10 trends for ‘green’ weddings 4. Choose an open registry. Instead of fine china that may never be used, many couples are opting for open registries that enable guests to gift everything from ecofriendly housewares to charitable donations to cash for down payments on a home.

(MC) – Environmentally friendly ideals are now permeating all aspects of daily living. Many people want to take the concept further and ensure their nuptials – and subsequent reception – are good for the planet as well. Here are some ideas to think about. 1. Reduce travel. Research indicates that more than two-thirds of emissions in the U.S. are produced by energy consumption and transportation. By reducing guests’ need to travel far for a wedding or offering transportation that can accommodate several people at once (like a bus), carbon emissions will be reduced.

2. Home is where the heart is. Keeping weddings close to home is helpful. Those with big backyards or a park nearby can host the event at home or in a nearby park and reduce dependence on large reception halls that use up large amounts of energy to operate. A home wedding also gives couples the opportunity to shop around for locally produced, organic foods. 3. Shop for floral alternatives. Flowers would seem “green” in themselves. However, many blooms available at florist shops are grown in hothouses with the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers, something that is not very good for the environment at all. Brides opting for something more eco-conscious could consider alternative options, such as bouquets made of sustainable succulent plants and centerpieces full of organic fruits and wildflowers.

5. Opt for mixed seating arrangements: Instead of formal escort cards indicating firm seating arrangements, couples are saving paper by allowing guests to choose their own seats from mix-matched options, such as long, communal benches and comfy sofas. 6. Go with something old. Recycled gowns and gently used items are good alternatives for ecoconscious brides. Many Web sites will match up brides with others looking to swap items at low or no cost. 7. Skip the paper. Though etiquette experts frown on abandoning paper invitations for electronic ones, many couples are doing just that. For those who still prefer paper, print invitations on recycled paper. Reduce other wedding stationery needs by posting information on a wedding Web site shared with family and friends.

8. Go small scale. Instead of inviting every last cousin and distant uncle, couples are opting for more intimate affairs, including only the people they are closest to, which saves on cost and helps the environment.

LEN’S CATERING LTD...

9.Trim some of the wedding day fat. Some couples opt for an all-youcan-eat buffet and then a subsequent dessert bar later on in the evening. Stuffed guests may end up wasting more food than eating it. Instead of all-you-can, go for a more traditional meal.

OPERATING ENGINEERS HALL

10. Choose a charitable party favor. Instead of a party favor that collects dust on a shelf, couples are choosing to gift with organic products or a donation to a charitable organization in the guests’ names. ✤

Ten rules for RRSP investing By Robyn K. Thompson, CFP

marginal rate and lose the benefit of all that tax-sheltered compound growth.

Every year around this time, there’s a big marketing push to open up and contribute to a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP). And for good reason. RRSPs are still one of the best retirement saving and tax-deferral opportunities available for Canadians, even though a majority of us do not use them to the max. So to help you make the most of an RRSP, here are 10 rules to follow. 1. Contribute. That sounds simplistic, but as the saying goes, “you can’t win if you don’t play.” Basically, an RRSP lets you contribute 18% of “earned income” every year to a pre-set maximum. For 2012, the maximum contribution limit was set at $22,970. And the last day to make a contribution for the 2012 tax year is March 1, 2013. 2. Pay yourself first. If you can’t contribute your maximum in a year, contribute as much as you can. Start small and make monthly contributions. Preauthorized payment plans are a good way to ensure regular contributions. 3. Start young. The sooner you start, the more effective the tax-sheltered compound growth within an RRSP. 4. Use contribution room. You can carry forward any unused “contribution room” (that is, amounts you did not contribute to your maximum in a given year) to add to your contributions in future years. If you’ve made a large contribution in a year, you don’t have to apply the deduction all at once – you can spread it out and use it in future years. 5. Reinvest your refund. You get a tax deduction on your contribution for a given year. If that generates a tax refund for the year, don’t blow it. It’s like found money, so reinvest in your RRSP to expand your contribution and generate another tax refund next year.

7. Invest wisely. For many people, an RRSP will be their only source of retirement income apart from the Canada Pension Plan. While RRSP-eligible investments include everything from individual stocks to bonds to mutual funds and exchange-traded funds, it’s not the place to speculate on junior mines or high-tech start-ups. Moreover, tax benefits like the dividend tax credit, the capital gains tax exemption, and the ability to offset losses against gains are lost within an RRSP. 8. Know your limits. Most of us tend to overestimate our capacity to deal with market volatility and take investment losses. Be realistic about your own tolerance for risk (and ignore what your neighbor, uncle, or barber thinks). Then allocate your RRSP assets accordingly. If you don’t know how, get some help from a qualified advisor. 9. Use caution with RRSP loans. Loans are sometimes used to top-up RRSP contributions. But use these only if you can apply any refund that’s generated to paying off the loan or if you are certain you can pay off the loan over a short time. Be careful you don’t get into a cash-flow bind with an RRSP loan. 10. Select the right maturity option. When you retire, you can withdraw RRSP funds in a lump sum (and pay a huge tax bill), roll over into a Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF), or purchase an annuity (you must collapse your RRSP in the year you turn 71.) There are pros and cons to each of these, and it’s best to discuss them with an advisor.

How the pros use ETFs to build low-cost RRSP portfolios By Robyn Graham

markets are increasingly driven by global macroeconomic factors, the value of expertise in professional investment management is more important than ever before.

The surging popularity of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) has many investors wondering whether these investments are suitable for retirement savings plans. The management expense ratios (MERs) of ETFs tend to be low, making them an attractive option from an investment cost standpoint. But as with any type of investment, many factors must be considered in order to build an effective portfolio.

It is in the area of professional portfolio management techniques where ETFs have delivered the most value and benefit to the investor. Where previously much professional analysis would have focused on individual security selection, global macroeconomic analysis and the resulting asset allocation decisions are now seen as the key drivers of portfolio risk and return.

Like mutual funds, ETFs provide participation in a basket of securities, offering the benefits of diversification and liquidity. But the ETF takes the evolution of investing to the next level by “securitizing” these diversified baskets of securities and listing them on stock exchanges throughout the world. This means that investors can buy and sell their fund like any other exchange-listed equity any time markets are open. For most people, however, the challenges of choosing suitable investments and monitoring those investments remains daunting regardless of whether they are using ETFs, mutual funds, or individual securities. In a global investment environment, where

In this context, ETFs can provide the liquidity and affordable access to asset classes that were previously difficult and expensive to access, such as commodities, precious metals, and emerging market fixed income. Furthermore, the proliferation of ETFs now makes it possible for money managers not only to access market returns at a low cost, but also to fine-tune a portfolio using specialized ETFs such as those focused specifically on one sector or style, say, income generation. As a result, it is now possible to build a better, more diversified portfolio with as little as $100,000 at less cost than was possible 15 years ago with individual securities. In today’s volatile, globally interconnected

1. Use global macro allocations to recognize different secular eras. 2. Employ strategic asset-type allocation to establish net risk. 3. Establish broad assettype diversification to limit strategic risk. 4. Set investment limits for every holding to reduce concentration risk. 5. Utilize pure asset-type index ETFs to limit impact of singlesecurity risk. 6. Probability-weight multiple scenarios to insulate portfolios against future risk.

Are your taxes putting you to sleep?

6. Don’t break open the piggybank! Your investments grow tax-free inside an RRSP, but you’ll pay tax as soon as you withdraw. If you withdraw in your peak earning years, you’ll pay tax at your top

Low coolant leads to temperature dip CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi

Dear Tom and Ray: Recently I was driving my 2001 Ford Focus in cold weather on I-70 in the mountains west of Denver. There are two long, steep grades (10 to 15 miles at seven per cent to eight per cent) on either side of the Eisenhower/ Johnson tunnels. After completing about half of the downhill run on the west side, I noticed the engine temperature had gone completely cold and I was getting no heat in the passenger area. When I opened the throttle slightly, the engine temperature began to come up some (so did the speed – not what I needed). When I stepped on the gas to go up the other side of the hill, using the engine for propulsion instead of braking, the engine temperature returned to normal and I got heat again. The same thing happened on the return trip. What’s causing this? Thanks! – Jim RAY: I think you have a classic case of low coolant, Jim. TOM: The way you get heat is that the coolant circulates through the engine and sucks up the heat created by the combustion process. It then releases that heat in one of two ways: either by going

through the radiator, or by entering the heater core and releasing heat into the passenger cabin. RAY: So the heater core is like another small radiator that’s only active when you crank up your heater control. And on most cars, the heater core is the last thing to get coolant – it’s the farthest away from the water pump, and often the highest thing in the system, too. TOM: So if you were low on coolant, the first way you’d notice it in the winter is from a lack of heat in the cabin. RAY: If the coolant were low enough to fall below the coolant temperature sensor and leave the sensor exposed, the engine temperature would read “cold.” So it all makes sense. TOM: The reason it came back a bit when you went uphill is because when you’re revving the engine, you’re making the water pump turn faster, and that’s getting a little bit of warm coolant into your heater core, at least temporarily. RAY: So you need to do two things, Jim: You need to see if you’re low on coolant. And when you find out that you are, you need to find out why. It could be anything from a loose $2 hose clamp to a $2,000 cracked cylinder head. TOM: You want to catch it and get it fixed while it’s still a hose clamp – before you overheat the engine and make things much worse. Good luck, Jim.

The bait car program has expanded in the province to include property left inside vehicles, according to a press release from the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia. “Bait vehicles throughout B.C. have been upgraded with the latest audio and video technology, to address the issue of theft from vehicles,” the release stated. “Bait property will look no different than any other property thieves may find in vehicles and may range from tool boxes to a gym bag. The difference is it can be tracked and monitored by police.” The corporation made the announcement at the end of January, in advance of Auto Crime Enforcement Month, which is February. The bait car program is run by the Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team. Since the program began in 2003, auto theft in the province has decreased by 73 per cent, according to the release.

RCMP find 10 sticks of dynamite in highrise Alfie Lau

staff reporter

A potentially dangerous situation involving dynamite sticks was defused Monday night by Burnaby RCMP members. Acting on a tip from a worker doing an upgrade on an empty condo unit on the 11th floor of a 39-storey apartment building in the 4200-block of Grange Street near Metrotown, Burnaby RCMP obtained a drug search warrant for the unit. Just after 8 p.m., police officers discovered a duffel bag containing 10 sticks of the crystallized dynamite and immediately called in explosives experts. The explosives were deemed a risk, so police officers decided to clear the building, with many of the residents being taken to the Bonsor Recreation Complex. “The entire building had to be evacuated, and that means we were looking at

over 100 people who had to be evacuated,” said Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Dave Reid. The explosives experts disposed of the dynamite by taking it to nearby Central Park, where it was burned. They also found several small homemade explosive devices in the apartment – Reid said they were small containers containing carbon dioxide which could explode if thrown into a fire – which they removed and safely disposed of. When it was safe for the drug warrant to be executed, police realized the apartment appeared to be a cocaine packaging and distribution centre. Police seized large amounts of cocaine, guns and money. “No arrests have been made. We are still looking for the individual who was renting this place out,” said Reid. “We don’t know where he is, and the investigation is ongoing.” The residents were allowed back into the building just before midnight.

Burnaby hang-glider faces new charges A charge of criminal negligence causing death has been laid against a hang-glider pilot in connection with an incident in which a 27-year-old woman plunged 300 metres to the ground last year. William (Jon) Orders, 50, was flying with Lenami Godinez-Avila when she fell seconds after the launch of a tandem flight off Mount Woodside in the Fraser Valley

on April 28, 2012. Orders, a Burnaby resident, was earlier charged with obstructing justice after police alleged he swallowed the data disk from a video camera aboard his glider. Orders appeared in Chilliwack Provincial Court on Monday, with his next scheduled appearance in March. By Christopher Reynolds, Vancouver Sun

Health hard to define HEALTHWISE

Dr. Davidicus Wong

I

have been a doctor for almost all of my adult life, but long before that, I was a patient. In Grade 6, I missed three weeks of school when I was hospitalized with rheumatoid arthritis, and during my childhood, I had more medical appointments than most of my patients and more blood tests than any of them. I learned never to take my health for granted. I learned not to define myself by a diagnosis or illness, and from the nurses and doctors of Burnaby Hospital who looked after me as a whole person and not just the disease, I discovered my vocation. It’s human nature to grumble about appearances at different stages in our lives – a blemish in our teens, wrinkles and grey hair as we age, our height or our weight. These concerns fade into insignificance in contrast to the seriously ill or those who would be happy just to feel normal and not in pain. How we think about health informs how we approach our lives.

How do you define health? Is it youth? Is it the absence of illness? Is it when everything in your body, your emotions and your mind are in perfect order? If that were the case, few of us would be healthy and none of us would stay that way. When I gave public talks for the Canadian Diabetes Association, I learned of the organization’s preference never to refer to people with diabetes as diabetics. It is so easy for health care providers and patients themselves to label them with a condition that they may have. For some, that labelling is limiting. It can bring a negative focus to their healthcare and how they see themselves. This negative approach to health is endemic. Almost all medical visits are problem-based. Most people only see the doctor because of infections, distress or other symptoms of illness. The minority come for preventive care. Even fewer are proactive. As a family physician, when patients have made appointments to address their problems, I’m usually the one to remind them of things they should be checking – for example, an annual blood pressure measurement for most adults, diabetes testing over age 40, stool tests

for hidden blood over 50, prostate exams for men over 50, and pap smears and mammograms for women. Although accidents can happen and we cannot avoid every illness, we can all live longer, healthier lives with a positive approach to health. Preventive care includes healthy and safe living, with attention to a good, balanced diet, a variety of regular physical activity and eliminating unnecessary risks, such as smoking, unsafe driving, recreational drugs and alcohol abuse. Secondary preventive practices include the early detection of potentially life-limiting conditions while they are treatable. Screening tests can detect early signs of cervical, prostate, breast and colon cancer long before a person has any symptoms. In the next few weeks, I will be reviewing the preventive and proactive practices you need to know in order to take control of your health. You may come to think of your health – and your life – in a more active and positive way. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a family physician at the PrimeCare Medical Centre. His Healthwise column appears regularly in this paper. You can read more at davidicuswong.wordpress. com.

Stem Cell Activator

Helps to activate naturally millions of stem cells from our own bone marrow. The increase in stem cells released from the bone marrow into the blood stream have the potential to become other types of tissue cells with specialized function. Stem cells will multiply and are able to become heart cells, liver cells or any other organ. Located everywhere in our body, stem cells are even under our skin layered between the epidermis and dermis. This is why an increase in stem cells under our skin may help to #63 create a more youthful cell that would replenish elastin and collagen and thus may make us look younger. If our bone marrow does not produce enough stem cells this can result in many illnesses, especially a weak heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, in fact all healthy functions of our body are decreased. Sufficient stem cells in our body have a great potential of self-repair and the ability to rejuvenate tissues. It does not contain live human stem cells as these can only be transplanted by surgery and are subject to immunosuppressant drugs to avoid graft rejection. Naturopathic Doctor summarized his experience in writing after using this Stem Cell Activator: Used for all organ and tissue damage, heart attack damage, osteo-arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic brain injury, muscular dystrophy, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, lupus, spinal injuries, and other diseases and tissue damage. The results have been very satisfactory to us and to the patients and the time varies with different patients depending on the extremity of the damage. Women witnessing the effects of Bell Stem Cell Activator: !Women looking for anti-aging help! We all want to slow down aging. After using a bottle of Bell Stem Cell Activator #63 my skin seemed smoother and brighter. My hair looked healthier. It seems to have a cleansing effect. I’m delighted. Leona McCormick, 50, Clgary, AB ! All around healing effect! The first thing I noticed after starting Bell Stem Cell Activator #63 was that my skin feels firmer and stronger. My friends commented that my skin looks more vibrant. My doctor at my yearly physical told me that my blood pressure is significantly lower. Many good things are happening.

Association honoured

Burnaby Minor Baseball Association was recently named the 2012 association of the year at B.C. Minor Baseball’s 50th anniversary banquet. The association was chosen from 45 member associations across British Columbia for Burnaby’s achievement and effort in developing the sport of baseball and contributing to the development of Burnaby’s young citizens in the process. Marlene Keddie, director and registrar for Burnaby Minor, was also added to the BCMBA honour roll for her 15 years of volunteer support with the association. Burnaby Minor provides boys and girls from four through 18 with high-caliber house and league baseball programs that teach the fundamentals of baseball. Their volunteer supported programs contribute to developing basic athletic skills as well as long-term athlete development for children. The Burnaby association also supports the Challenger baseball program – providing children with cognitive or physical disabilities the opportunity to enjoy the full benefits of participation in baseball by bringing them together to play ball. The association is in the process of raising funds for new training facilities at their home field at Kensington Park. Registrations for the upcoming season are now being accepted.

Darkhorse Lions upset Byrne Creek for first boys’ hoop title Tom Berridge sports editor

The Burnaby Mountain Lions looked every inch the champion, upsetting league winner Byrne Creek Bulldogs 85-72 in the BurWest boys’ basketball final last Friday. The Lions pounced on the Bulldogs from the tipoff, outscoring their No. 10-ranked hosts 26-13 in the pivotal opening quarter. The two teams played even-up for the remaining three quarters. Mountain’s all-stars Karan Sanghera, Jaryn Bailey, Taymoor Khan and Burnaby NOW MVP Atdhe Hajrizi figured prominently in the win. Hajrizi scored a gamehigh double-double with 28 points and 13 rebounds, including 22 points in the second half. Bailey chipped in with 21 points and Khan had another 16. Sanghera had seven points and five steals for the Lions in a spirited game at point guard. Angelo Cruz was also a big factor in the opening 10 minutes, contributing seven points, including the game’s first three-pointer. Nathal George led the

all possible because of coach Matic. “He makes everything so simple and easy, all we have to do is listen and execute,” Hajrizi said. Burnaby South earned the third BurWest berth into the Lower Mainland championships, outlasting New Westminster 89-76. South all-star Taylor Smith led the Rebels with a game-high 25 points, including four threes and 19 points in the opening half. “We didn’t execute against Mountain (in the semifinals), so going forward we want to make sure it doesn’t happen again,” said South senior Nick Garcha, who had 14 second-half points, including a game-turning trey in the final quarter. “We want to show more performances that we can be proud of. It’s all about getting there (to the Mainlands).” The Mainlands tip-off today (Wednesday) with Byrne Creek hosting No. 11 Killarney and Burnaby South at home to No. 10 David Thompson. Both games are 7:30 p.m. starts. Burnaby Mountain hosts the winner of Byrne/ Killarney on Thursday.

Eight conference titles for Clan swimmers The Simon Fraser University women’s swimming team won seven titles at the Pacific Collegiate Swimming Conference Championship this past week, while the men’s team posted its first-ever conference title at La Mirada, California last weekend. Mariya Chekanovych of Burnaby shared in five of the women’s titles, including a pair of individual wins in breaststroke. Chekanovych set a new conference record of 1:01.85 with the fastest time in the NCAA this year in the 100yard breaststroke. The Burnaby swimmer also won the 200-yd. breast, just missing a second conference record. Chekanovych also shared gold on three winning relay teams. The first team title came on Thursday in the 200yd. medley relay, where the team of Kristine Lawson, Chekanovych, Alexandria Schofield and Nicole Cossey won with a new school record time of 1:44.51. In the women’s 400-yd. medley, Lawson, Schofield, Cossey and Chekanovych teamed up again to win

Chekanovych also helped the Clan 400-yd. freestyle relay team of Lawson, Konrad, Cossey and Chekanovych to first place over the University of California San Deigo. Cossey also won an individual title, taking first place in the 100-yd. free over the NCAA No. 3-ranked swimmer for her first individual conference title.
