Top chefs fight hunger Marelle Reid staff reporter

Fighting hunger, one mouth-watering meal at a time. That’s what Burnaby’s top chefs will be doing on April 18 when they get together at the Hilton Vancouver-Metrotown Hotel to serve up some of their best culinary creations for the Empty Bowls event. This bi-annual gala is a fundraiser organized by the Burnaby Empty Bowls committee, which supports programs that help local children and families in need. “It’s just a good way to promote community awareness,” said Hart House executive chef, Alana Peckham. “I really like that there’s something I can do to give back to the community.” Guests will be able to support their community while sampling a range of fine dining options, enjoying some live entertainment and auction items, and go home with complimentary ceramic bowls specially created by local artists. At the last gala event, in 2011, Empty Bowls raised more than $31,000 to fund 21 local community projects, including the school district’s food programs and several other non-profit and service groups. The committee supports local efforts to feed hungry children and families, mostly through school snack programs. Some programs focus on families, teaching parents

Public gets say in new secondary suite plan Stefania Seccia staff reporter

The public will soon be able to weigh in on Burnaby’s proposed program to legalize secondary suites. On Monday, Burnaby council approved, in principle, the proposal for a secondary suite program as a basis for public consultation and feedback, according to a planning and building report.

After a lengthy public input process, a secondary suite program could become legalized between February and October 2014. Burnaby has approximately 5,878 unauthorized accessory secondary suites, according to the B.C. Assessment Authority, which “suggests that about one in five of single-family dwellings in the city have a secondary suite.” Currently, the city has 426 in-law suites

that are authorized and registered. As a proposed component, the city’s zoning bylaw would change the secondary suite’s definition to “an accessory dwelling unit fully contained within a single-family building.” “The proposals seek to manage the legalization of a substantial inventory of existing unauthorized secondary suites in the city, and to allow for the development of new secondary suites in single-family dwell-

Harnessing magic in Burnaby

Quantum leap:

Jeremy Hilton, D-Waves vice-president of processor development, stands in front of his company’s quantum computer, while holding two wafers of its qubit processor.

City home to the world leader in quantum computers Stefania Seccia staff reporter

The coldest place in the universe can be found right here in Burnaby. The world’s leader in developing computers that successfully work on quantum mechanical theory, often referred to as the magic of science, is on Still Creek Drive with more than 90 U.S. patents to its name. D-Waves Systems Inc. sold its first computer to Lockheed Martin and in a recent round of investments, got the backing of InQ-Tel, which is a venture-capital company that represents the CIA. Recently, Lockheed Martin announced that it intends to upgrade its D-Waves computer to a commercial scale. D-Waves Systems was founded in 1999 by UBC scientists and has worked its way up to its current 512 quantum-bit (qubit) processor. Each system has a price tag of $10 million, is hundreds of thousands of times faster than a conventional computer and requires a temperature colder than deep space to work. What sets a quantum computer apart from a regular one, besides the fact it’s based on complex theories that occur on an infinitesimal level, is its ability to solve optimization problems. Jeremy Hilton, D-Waves vice-president of processor development, said optimization problems are useful for many things, such as machine learning, cancer detection, radiographs and image-labelling.

“This technology is very relevant to a lot of the major challenges that humanity is facing right now and will be facing moving forward as technology gets more complex,” Hilton told the Burnaby NOW. “We’re trying to solve ever more complex problems. We believe this is going to be a critical piece of technology that enables us and humanity to be able to solve these kinds of problems.” D-Waves recently worked with Google on a classifier that was able to identify specific objects in an image, known as imagelabelling. “(Computers) think of an image as a set of pixels and … we’re talking about objects which are aggregates of pixels – conveying

to a machine how to do that is a very, very difficult thing,” Hilton said. Google offered up its servers, and with D-Waves’s quantum computer, the classifier was able to pick up specifically on a car in the image. “It was actually quite successful,” Hilton said. “The classifier was slightly better than the normal algorithms that they had used at the time.” It’s something that conventional computers would never be able to do, according to Hilton. “That’s a very hard thing, and machines are terrible at it,” he said. “They don’t work the way our brains do. “Your brain works in this incredible

way to process objects in things that you perceive, and it’s how we’re wired, but computers are terrible at that.” Image-labelling is part of a broader class of machine learning, where machines are able to do what humans can. “And that’s not intelligence per say, but there are elements of processing that are just different from what’s possible right now,” Hilton said. The company developed all of its technology from the ground up – right here in Burnaby. “We’ve come a long way,” Hilton said. For the full feature on D-Waves Systems Inc. go to www.burnabynow.com

Building Code and including secondary suites into the city’s permit, licence and fee systems. “The approach also seeks to help manage the inclusion of complaints, suite size limits, the number of accessory uses, additional parking, payment of utility and other fees, and management of suites where the owner does not reside on the property,” the report states. According to the report, secondary suites in Burnaby are a significant part of the city’s affordable rental housing inventory that would otherwise not exist, “at a 6

time when property values and rents in the region have ranked the highest in the country.” The city’s current total of non-market housing stock is about 6,175 units. “In the absence of a renewed commitment by senior levels of government to actively encourage development of new affordable rental accommodation, there will be a continued demand and development of additional secondary suites, whether the city legalizes and regulates their construction or not,” the report states. If and when the secondary suites are approved by council, the city will be required to initiate a program to address

the “illegal” or unlawful 5,878 suites that have not received inspection and final approval from the building department that are located in single-family dwellings, according to the report. A secondary suite in a two-family dwelling would continue to be illegal. “The city’s program for enforcing illegal suites will need to be assessed against a number of sometimes competing and conflicting objectives,” the report states. “How passive or active the city chooses to be in pursuing secondary suite legalization will also relate to (several) objectives.” Objectives such as safety standards, financial equity for utility fees and keeping local

neighbourhood impacts to a minimum. There are 25 individual recommended approaches that could collectively comprise the basis for the city’s first secondary suite program. Since council approved the report, staff is expected to draft a zoning bylaw amendment and and prepare public info displays by the end of May. In May and June, there will be a series of public open houses at major venues in four parts of the city. Staff will report on the results of the open houses in July.

No real alternative to incineration: Mayor Stefania Seccia staff reporter

Despite a recent report criticizing waste incineration, Mayor Derek Corrigan defends the practice as an optimal alternative to landfills. A study released last week from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) and Wilderness Committee stated that waste incineration was not only worse than coal burning and bad for air quality, but it also creates a demand for more waste consumption. Corrigan, also the vicechair of Metro Vancouver’s zero-waste committee, said most people don’t know that Burnaby has had a waste-to-energy incinerator since 1988, which has high environmental standards. “Those of us who have been working on this for many, many years find it frustrating when a group of academics come and simply dismiss all of the work that’s been done,” Corrigan said of the study, Closing the Loop: Reducing Greenhouse Emissions Through Zero Waste in B.C. Burnaby’s waste-toenergy facility has been extremely useful because the alternative would be to put garbage into the landfills, according to Corrigan. “It’s much more severe in a landfill,” he added. “I think everyone world wide agrees on that. It’s been essentially banned in Europe. “I thought the CCPA report was really a polly-

“I just don’t know if there’s any other alternative but to expect some degree of incineration,” Corrigan said. “We do it the cleanest way possible.” According to a Metro Vancouver document about Burnaby’s waste-to-energy facility, it turns about 285,000 tonnes of garbage into steam and electricity. The steam is sold to a paper-recycling facility and the electricity is sold to B.C. Hyrdo, with enough power for 15,000 homes. Metro Vancouver is now looking to develop new

incinerators in Burnaby’s model. “The next generation of incinerators will improve with the last 25 years of research and development,” Corrigan said. “It will ensure the highest environmental (standards).” The regional organization has identified wasteto-energy recovery as the

Kudos to the provincial government leaders who, once again, are trying to help B.C. children achieve a healthy weight.

Although it seems like a pittance compared to how much obesity costs us in medical costs. Obesity-related illnesses cost the British

The experts correctly point out that our relationship to food is forged at an early age – they don’t call it comfort food for nothing – and developing better eating habits and choices must start at an early age.

Re: Fracking fight comes to Burnaby, Burnaby NOW, April 3. Does anyone feel that a group of people who vandalize city/government public and private property with their posters should get any respect? The posters are everywhere between MacDonald and Gamma avenues along Hastings Street; put up in such a manner that they are not removable, not to mention the toner used on them will eventually make it down the storm drains and pollute the fish habitat. Plus, the city will have to pay someone to remove them, which will damage the quite recent paint job so

they will need to be painted again. Who pays for that? I do! There is a pole at the corner of Hastings Street and Willingdon Avenue that is specifically made for posters and not a single one of these was put there. Go figure! I contacted them about this issue and the only response I received was that they hoped I made it to the action. The residents of this community have done a great job keeping the poles nice and clean the past year and single handily this one group has ruined that. Any group that shows such disdain for the community by vandalizing and littering it and then doesn’t even have the fortitude to remove the posters

Zero waste not possible

No brakes on oil tankers

Dear Editor:

Dear Editor:

Re: Process is worse than coal burning, Burnaby NOW, April 5. Yes it is true that we over consume and waste too much, and we should all try harder in our efforts to do better. However, it never fails to amaze me how environmentalist overstate their concerns. Firstly, do they really want to repair and reuse old appliances like refrigerators? Recently we replaced our 20-year-old fridge with a new Power Smart one and the savings on our electric bill were simply amazing. B.C. Hydro hauled away the old one for recycling and proper disposal of the refrigerant. Does it make environmental sense to have repaired this old energywasting refrigerator? Secondly, I can see the incinerator in Burnaby from my neighbourhood. The south slope of Burnaby, with its milliondollar homes, is certainly not a low-income neighbourhood. Lastly, this goal of zero waste is completely unreasonable and unattainable. Mankind for tens of thousands of years has produced waste. This is what archaeolo-

There is one more thing I’ve learned about oil tankers. I’ve noticed a tendency on the part of oil industry supporters to overstate the merits of double hulled oil tankers. They often give the impression that two hulls will reduce or prevent spills in the case of collision or grounding. But the fact of the matter is that, by and of themselves, double hulls do not deter oil spills. In much the same way as a car accident, the amount of damage caused by a collision is determined by the force of the impact. As we all know, a low-energy impact will result in a fender bender, while a highenergy impact will do much more damage. The same principle applies to ships. And, yes, an undamaged inner hull can help keep a ship afloat if a low-energy collision causes a breach in the outer hull. However, the higher the energy impact the more likely both hulls will be breached. A major difference between a ship and a car, of course, is that a ship doesn’t have brakes.

tially made up of several thousand private business people who are paid with public funds. Getting them to agree internally how to divide up the financial pie is difficult enough, but getting them to agree to reduce their payments is basically impossible. I suspect the NDP will tread carefully when dealing with doctors, and don’t be surprised if they adopt a more conciliatory path than the B.C. Liberals if they win the election. History shows environmentalists and doctors win a lot more battles than they lose with government. Dix and his colleagues should be mindful of that if they win in May, or they’ll suffer some long and never-ending headaches, just as they did in the 1990s.

to wonder whether Dix wants to go through a similar fight with no sign of success on the horizon. If Dix wants an assessment of the folly of taking on the association, he just needs to talk to his health critic, Mike Farnworth, who was the health minister for much of the fighting with the association. He came out of those skirmishes badly bruised and has said the battles simply weren’t worth it. It’s hard for any government to take on the medical profession. For one thing, the general public is far more supportive of doctors (and nurses) than politicians. But there’s another problem for government: the association is not a trade union and therefore doesn’t negotiate as such. The association is essen-

On the other front, there are talks set for this fall with B.C.’s doctors to allow a “re-opener” on a number of contract issues, not the least of which is financial compensation. The government’s current position is that there has to be some kind of reduction in some areas. That simply isn’t going to wash with the B.C. Medical Association. The NDP government of the 1990s repeatedly clashed with the association over how much doctors should be paid. It lost every battle, and one has

Shots fired near city park Cayley Dobie staff reporter

Burnaby RCMP found several bullet casings near Central Park after responding to reports of shots fired early Sunday morning. Police received calls around 6 a.m. from residents in the 6300-block of Patterson Avenue, near Willingdon, claiming to have heard gunshots. Cpl. Dave Reid said officers and police dogs searched the area, including part of Central Park, but didn’t find any people

or guns. “There were a couple of cartridge casings found, but nothing that would indicate there was a target of any specific nature,” he said. According to Reid, investigators didn’t turn up anything other than the casings at the scene. He said it’s likely that someone drove up to the park, shot off a few rounds, and drove away. “It kind of looks basically like someone has shot into the bushes, and that can be a variety of things.

Someone’s found a gun at home, and they’ve decided they wanted to try it out so they did it at night, or something along that nature,” he said. While Reid said investigators haven’t found any evidence to suggest this was a targeted shooting, he wants to remind the public that firing a gun is still a criminal offence. “Discharging a weapon is, in itself, a criminal act,” he said. “But there’s nothing to suggest this is associated to any gangs or any criminal activity.”

Autistic children (are) very good at repetition.” The café offers an assortment of different drinks and desserts, which are made by the seniors of a seniors’ home in Surrey, which Chung owns. There’s also a spot along the windows dedicated for community members to sit and speak with one another, just as Joseph would have done. “When people come for sympathy, it doesn’t last too long. I want them to come for value,” Chung said. “I want them to say, ‘this is great coffee.’ We want to show them that people with different abilities can make good coffee too.” Although Joseph won’t be a physical part of the café as he was originally intended to be, Chung says his spirit lives on through their shop. He intends to open more locations throughout the Lower Mainland. Chung recalled a memory of his late son when the family attended an event for

the non-profit organization, Community of Hope. “And my son was missing,” Chung said. “So, we were looking for him and he was talking to a homeless guy sitting in the corner. He was telling him, ‘Hi, my name is Joseph. What is your name?’ “This guy just got startled … he was looking at him and Joseph kept insisting for his name, and that brought a big smile on the guy. That’s a great way of showing some love in this world.” Joe’s Table is also looking for artists with different abilities to exhibit their work at a dedicated gallery space in the café. For more information, contact Yul Kim at yul. kim@eminata.com. “Maybe that was the work he had to do while he’s on this Earth,” Chung said. “Just to set up something like this, maybe we could help people with different abilities.”

Product Hailed by Doctors as the Solution for Back Pain

Doctor developed decompression belt has been called the solution for back pain. Dr. Michael Ho announced he is giving 50% off for one week only. Due to the Spring rush, each household is limited to only 2 belts. By Marc Charron

Health and Lifestyle

Back pain affects 8 out of 10 people. It can also rob you of your happiness, where getting out of bed becomes a painful reminder of your bad back. While pills provide temporary relief, the condition can reoccur, because pills mask the symptoms and do not target the cause of the pain. Other treatments cost thousands of dollars or have substantial health risks. “That’s why most people end up “living” with their bad back,” says Dr. Michael Ho. Dr. Michael Ho is a doctor with over 20 years of clinical experience specializing in treating the cause of chronic back pain, including Degenerative Disc Disease, Sciatic Nerve Pain, Scoliosis, Spinal Stenosis and Herniated / Bulging discs. His belief is to treat the cause of the problem so that patients get long term relief, earning him international recognition for his patient care and expertise. "o Belt

With Belt

Dr. Ho has developed a back supporting decompression belt that can be used at home, allowing you to help relieve your back pain, while saving time and money. Dr. Ho’s brand new Decompression Belt is endorsed by medical professionals and customers that have suffered with long-term, chronic back pain. "I have used many modalities to treat my patients, but nothing is as effective as the decompression belt. To effectively treat someone with back pain, the patient must receive treatment everyday for 6 - 8 weeks. People cannot afford the time or money to visit the doctor everyday. I developed this belt because patients need a device they can use at home,” says Dr. Ho. Dr. Ho’s Decompression Belt expands to help decompress the spine to provide support and help relieve the pain. The belt will help relieve your pain in as little as 20 minutes, even if you’ve suffered with back pain for many years. And you can even wear the belt while doing activities.

T

he Chinese Taoism Kuan Kung Association and the Tian-Jin Temple in Burnaby are hosting an anniversary celebration and cultural festival on April 13 and 14. “It’s pretty open, anybody can just drop in,” said Jeff Yu, the temple’s operations coordinator. “It’s going to be lots of fun, lots of great food, lots of great shows, and everybody is welcome.” The Tian-Jin Cultural Festival promotes traditional Chinese culture, but there will be music, art and food from a number of other cultures. There will also be an indoor play area for families, a bouncy castle and a licensed chiropractor to assess children’s bone growth for free. There will be a Shaolin Kung Fu performance, traditional Chinese street food, face-painting and a balloon artist. The Taoist temple,

situated in a renovated Anglican church, is at 3426 Smith Ave. The celebration marks the temple’s one-year anniversary at that location. The event is Saturday, April 13 and Sunday April 14, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, go to www.tianjintemple.org.

City workshops

The City of Burnaby is hosting a series of invasive species workshops for gardeners. Invasive species are any plants that are not native to the area. They can quickly take over gardens and parks, crowding out and choking native plants. Workshops are $5 per person and held at the Shadbolt Centre, at 6450 Deer Lake Ave., from 10 a.m. to noon. Register by visiting the city’s website at Burnaby.ca/webreg. The first workshop, on Sunday, April 14, is presented by the Invasive Plant Council of Metro Vancouver. Participants will learn how to identify and manage typical invasive plants in Burnaby. The second workshop, on Sunday, April 21, is on removing and controlling invasive species in your

garden. The last workshop, on Sunday April 28, is about creating a sustainable, invasive-free urban garden that does not threaten the surrounding environment. Laura Ralph, from Alive and Well Organic Gardening, is the presenter. For more information, call 604-294-7690 or email invasivespecies@burnaby. ca.

Fiancé completely wrong about cruise control CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi

Dear Tom and Ray: I have an issue. OK, not so much an issue, more of an argument between me and my fiancé. I just bought a 2008 Dodge Caliber. My new toy has everything I love, includ-

ing cruise control. I do a lot of highway travelling, and I love my cruise control. My fiancé says it’s no good that I use cruise control all the time, and that it’s bad for the engine or transmission. Is he right? Is using my cruise control too often bad for my car – will I break my cruise control if I use it too much? If so, why, and when should one use cruise control? Love you guys! – Sara RAY: If you think of the engagement period as a

sort of test drive, Sara, your fiancé just backed into a tree. TOM: He doesn’t have half a leg to stand on here. Using the cruise control won’t wear anything out. In fact, because it helps you maintain a constant speed, it actually prevents a certain amount of wear and tear that comes from accelerating and decelerating more frequently. RAY: The engine and transmission couldn’t care less whether the electronic inputs are coming from your right foot or the

cruise control system. And neither should your fiancé. So tell him if he doesn’t offer more fact-based advice in the future, he’s going to lose his male automotive-pontificating privileges for the duration of the marriage. TOM: Plus, highway driving is exactly the time you DO want to use cruise control – when you’re maintaining a constant speed for a long period of time, when traffic is thin and moving predictably, and when there are few unexpected obstacles that

get in your way (like pedestrians, bicyclists, crossing traffic or aggressive squeegee guys.) RAY: The time you don’t want to use cruise control is in dense traffic, or in stop-and-go traffic, where you could be expected to have to slow down or stop frequently or unexpectedly. But even that’s a safety issue, not a wear-and-tear issue. TOM: Right. In the old days, the cruise control used a separate cable that physically moved the throttle. So there were a

few small parts that could wear out over time back then. But cars don’t have throttle cables anymore. Everything’s done electronically, through the computer. So there’s nothing to wear out, Sara. RAY: So, suggest that the future hubby concede defeat on this one. And if he tries to argue he’s still right because you’re going to use up your lifetime allotment of electrons, run. Got a question about cars? Write Click and Clack by visiting the Car Talk website at www.cartalk.com.

Big, beautiful wheel rims expensive to maintain vehicle are even more. It gets even weirder when your car has different tire sizes front and back and they happen to be directional (they can then only be rotated

side-to-side and must be removed from the wheels to do so). In extreme cases, each tire is a separate part number for the car. Then, of course, there’s living with those beauti-

ful and bigger wheels and tires. Living with them, you ask? Driving a car with extra big wheels and low-profile tires requires a totally new

respect for the road, as in every pothole, every piece of broken pavement and bridge expansion joint. Your first realization of this comes rather quickly

eautiful vehicle lines can be ruined by three things, in my book: paint colour; vehicle stance (ride height); and wheel size/design. That last one is make or break for me, actually. The wheels have to be the right design, finished properly and sized right for the vehicle. And that usually means bigger is better. It sounds great and all, but is there a downside? Well, only if you’re blinded by the bling. There are about 250 separate and distinct vehicle models out there. Now, each of those 250 models arrives in an average of about three trim levels, for a total of about 750. And, each of those trim levels is usually offered with its very own set of specific wheels and tires. The average wheel diameter is in the 17-inch range. It many cases you’ll see 18- and 19-inch wheels. All that shiny metal sure fills out the wheel wells. Ask anyone: the bigger the wheels, the more we want them. So, now that you have them, there’s a little math to consider: the replacement price for those bigdiameter low-profile tires. Just so you know, these aren’t $79 each, the price

Listen to your body to strike healthy balance HEALTHWISE

Dr. Davidicus Wong

S

ome parents don’t listen to their children unless they’re misbehaving, but wise parents are proactive and involved; they know what their kids are up to, especially when they’re quiet. This is something we all know, but when we’re putting out fires at work, we may neglect other important areas of our lives.

Our personal health is one of those areas. A lot of people don’t think about their health until something goes wrong. Even then, they may neglect the body’s messages: poor sleep, chronic tiredness, nagging aches and changes in the bodily functions they take for granted. But health isn’t defined as the absence of disease and good health care is not just the treatment of illness. I define health as the optimal balance of the important areas of your life and achieving your positive potential in each of those areas.

Just as your organization has mission and vision statements, I believe each of us should have a personal mission statement and a vision that serves as a compass. By looking at our compass as we go about our daily lives – rather than when we’re already lost – we are more likely to stay on track. My personal mission is to achieve my positive potential in life and to help others achieve theirs. At work, I try to do more than solve each patient’s list of medical problems. I seek to see the whole person, their challenges in the context of their emotional, physical and social health,

and to help them achieve their personal goals. But few of us will achieve our goals unless we articulate them. Each day, I look at my mandala – a large circle with 10 smaller spheres around its perimeter. Each of the spheres represents an important area of my life: my family, mental well-being, emotional health, rest and play, spiritual health, social health, physical wellbeing, work, financial well-being and environmental health. Each day, I take a moment to consider just two of those spheres. On Monday I may think about

my family and social life. I have chosen three or four goals for each sphere, and I use them as guideposts. My goals for my family are to spend enough time and attention with my spouse and children, to nurture each relationship and to maintain a loving and supportive home. To attend to your health and to find balance in your life, you can’t afford to wait until your next vacation or serious illness. You can’t wait for a quieter time to start eating healthier meals, catching up on sleep, cutting down on alcohol, quitting smoking or starting an exercise program. You have to recog-

nize the priorities in your life and add them to your schedule until healthier living becomes a routine. I get to bed by 9:30 p.m. to wake up each day at 5 a.m. I’ll swim 80 lengths at the pool and be back home in time to have breakfast with my family and drive my daughter to school. During a busy day, I schedule time for a healthy lunch and a shorter rest break during the morning and the afternoon. A healthy life balance doesn’t come naturally. Our lives are in constant motion and change is inevitable, but to be at our best we should strive for that dynamic balance.

B.C. teens ring in first-ever gold Tom Berridge sports editor

Team B.C. avenged its only two losses to come back and win the province’s first-ever under16 title at the Canadian Ringette Championships in Fredericton, N.B. The Lower Mainland reps, including New Westminster defender Hailey Valancius, doubled Alberta champion Calgary Strive 8-4 in the gold-medal final on Saturday. Ingrid Bakke of Delta scored two first-period goals, including the eventual game-winner, as B.C. dominated the first half 6-1. Burnaby/New Westminster association product Lauren Watson scored a goal and drew an assist on Bakke’s gamewinning tally. Dana Dunstan of Surrey also scored a pair of goals for B.C. Second team all-star goalie Sarah MacDonald of Langley made 32 saves in goal for the winners. Rachel Gauthier of Langley and first team allstar Arisa Cadeau of Delta chipped in with four and three points, respectively. “It was just like, ‘Wow, we actually did this.’ What we worked for all year came down to this,” said Valancius, who was honoured as the team’s flag bearer at the event. “A lot of the girls were crying. It was thrilling.” In the semifinals, B.C. avenged its only other defeat, beating Ontario

early on a tap-in by David Begert following a pass through the crease by Major Kaila. Red Deer got the go-ahead marker midway through the third on a deflected shot from the point from Jordan Steenbergen. “Everyone battled their heads off. It all came down to a couple of bounces,” said Smith after the game. “It was so close. “I’m overwhelmed. It’s just hard to believe (it’s over). We battled so hard, as hard as we could, and it came down to the little things – one bad bounce and that was it.” First-year head coach Clint Thornton said it was an “emotional time. “ “It wasn’t so much losing the Giants Page 22

The Northwest Giants were one goal and mere seconds away from a possible berth at the Telus Cup. But chance proved not to be the friend of the six-time major midget champions following a 32 loss to the Red Deer Optimist Chiefs at the Burnaby Winter Club on Sunday. The Chiefs came back from a 4-3 overtime loss in the opening game of the best-of-three Pacific regional championship series and then forced a Game 3 tiebreaker with a 3-2 win in double overtime at the winter club on Saturday. “I’m disappointed.

St. Thomas More Collegiate’s Darthe Capellan won a gold medal at 50 kilograms at the Canadian juvenile wrestling championships in Saskatoon this weekend. Capellan, this year’s silver medallist at the B.C. high school championships, avenged that loss with a 6-1 win over provincial champion Dave Sharma in the national boys’ final. The 5-5 Grade 11 grappler had a long road to the juvenile final, winning four straight bouts before meeting Sharma in a second straight gold-medal final. Capellan advanced to the final following a 6-3 win over former Pan Am champion Tarin MacFayden of Tsunami in the semifinal. “From the provincials, it was motivation to win this time,” said Capellan. “I just wanted it really badly, and I guess I got it.” In the quarter-finals, Capellan edged Vancouver Island wrestler Mike Herman of Campbell River 7-4. Capellan also scored shutout wins in the opening bouts over two other wrestlers, blanking Roland Booth of the junior Dinos 14-0 after opening the competitive division with an 80 victory over Ligrit Sadiku of the Wolfpack. On the Sunday, Capellan qualified for the junior world championships in Serbia this summer, following a win in the FILA tournament. “I really worked hard for this. I was really happy,” Capellan said. “It was really surprising actually, but I believed in myself and I had the outcome I wanted.” STM’s Kevin Marshall placed second in the cadet 85 kg FILA trials. Three other STM students placed in the top five in girls’ cadet and juvenile divisions. Anna Benevoli finished fourth in the juvenile girls’ 70 kg weight class.

we lost to them in (at an earlier tournament) in Ottawa. When we did lose, we didn’t know how the rest of the tournament was going to go,” Valancius said, adding the team questioned whether they wanted to win as much as they said they did. The girls decided to do some soul searching and got together before each game – kept positive and resolved to stick with their checks. It worked. B.C. knocked off the Central Alberta Sting 6-2 the following day and finished off the round-robin on a 4-0 run. “We stayed focused and knew what we wanted now. We wanted to go to the finals and win it,” Valancius added. B.C. advanced past the quarter-finals with a 2-0 victory over Alberta No. 2 Calgary C.R.E.W. MacDonald was again the difference, stopping all 32 Calgary shots on goal. B.C. finished the preliminary round with a record of 5-2, including 37 goals for and just 16 against. In the championship round, B.C. kept its winning streak alive, outscoring the remaining three teams by a combined 12-4 score. “It actually feels real cool. Now the younger kids know they can do it too, since we did it first,” Valancius said. The Lower Mainland u19 team, including Burnaby
