Kinder Morgan has filed a project description with the National Energy Board as part of its expansion plan for the Trans Mountain pipeline, but local residents will have to wait till June 27 for details on routing options. Kinder Morgan wants to twin the line that runs oil from Alberta to the West Coast, and the project description is a preliminary step the company must make before filing its facilities application, which is expected later this year. The project description, which is more than 100 pages, details what Kinder Morgan is planning to build, but does not include details on how and where exactly, and much of the information covered is already publicly known. Kinder Morgan has not yet determined routing for the new pipeline in any community and is still seeking public feedback. “Burnaby community pages with maps will be available online at the end of June,” said Lisa Clement, a spokesperson for the expansion project. “We will be asking the public to provide feedback on routing,

City teacher’s certificate revoked Cayley Dobie staff reporter
A former Burnaby teacher has had his teaching certificate cancelled after criminal charges were laid against him for an incident that occurred outside of school. According to a resolution agreement by the B.C. Teacher Regulation Branch (formerly the B.C. Teachers’ College), in 2008 Douglas “Derek” Luymes was an on-call teacher for the Burnaby school district. In May of that year Luymes responded to a Craigslist ad offering “sexual services.” When he arrived at the Burnaby home a fight broke out between Luymes and the individual he was meeting. The individual – who is not named in the agreement – called the
Pipeline Page 8
police and Luymes was subsequently arrested and charged with assault and forcible entry. A month later Luymes resigned from his position with the school district and pled guilty to the charges, according to the agreement. The agreement stated that before going to trial Luymes agreed to sign a peace bond, which required him to “keep the peace and be of good behaviour” and not to contact the individual involved in the incident. A subcommittee of the teachers’ college began an investigation into Luymes’ actions shortly after the conclusion of the criminal case. The investigation continued for some time while the college attempted to come to an appropriate conclusion and, according to the agreement, eventually issued a citation to Luymes in January of 2012.
As of April of 2013, the director of certification revoked Luymes’ teaching certification for a period of three years, according to the agreement. At the end of the three years, Luymes – who resigned from his teaching post in Burnaby shortly after the 2008 incident – has the option to reapply for his teaching certificate but it will require him to start from the beginning, as if he’s a new graduate fresh out of school. According to the B.C. Teacher Regulation Branch, the investigation into Luymes took more than three years because the branch chose to wait for the criminal investigation and court proceedings to finish before beginning its own investigation. The branch would not provide any further comment on this matter.

BURNABY SPCA INVESTIGATING ATTACK
$20,000 later – Finley is on the mend Stefania Seccia staff reporter
Despite the brutal attack that happened in late April, New Westminster resident Darren Pilling and his three-year-old sheltie, Finley, are back to hanging out at work together. On April 22 at Burnaby’s Fraser Foreshore Park, Pilling and his dog went on a walk that took an unexpected turn for the worst when a large, unleashed dog attacked Finley, which later resulted in an altercation between the two dog owners. “(Finley’s) good,” Pilling told the Burnaby NOW. “She’s with me at work, out of the hospital. So that’s all good.” Finley was hospitalized for two weeks because the attack resulted in her losing a tremendous amount of blood and put a hole in her stomach, according to Pilling. He said the veterinarian bills now exceed $20,000, as well. “She had four surgeries and she was resuscitated three times, which means she was close to dying three times,” he said. “The money; I’ll figure out how to pay it all back.” Finley has no fur on one of her legs and her scars underneath have healed, but she’s no longer the friendly and energetic dog Pilling knew before the attack occurred. “She’s a little more skittish compared to normal,” he said. “She’s usually super, super outgoing. She’s not quite there. I don’t know if that’ll come back. She didn’t want to go to the house for awhile. She sleeps all day – it’s not normal for her. “I wouldn’t wish this on any-

body, not even the guy who did this to us.” After Pilling’s dog was attacked, he and Alexandru Radacina, the owner of the large dog that attacked Finley, exchanged words that resulted in an altercation, during which Pilling was also bitten on the leg by the large dog. Radacina had refused to give Pilling his name or information, but a witness took photos of Radacina from behind and posted the incident on Craigslist. The police found Burnaby resident Radacina, arrested him
and charged him with assault, according to Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Dave Reid. Radacina appeared before a provincial court judge in Vancouver late last week and the charges were stayed, as it was not clear who started the fight, Reid said, and the dog was not commanded to attack Pilling. The Burnaby branch of the B.C. SPCA is now looking into the incident, according to branch manager, Ryan Voutilainen. He said there are no other complaints lodged against the dog or its owner, Radacina, and Radacina is willing to comply
with the city’s animal control bylaw. When the investigation is closed, the SPCA will work with the city and discuss how to move forward, Voutilainen said. According to Burnaby’s animal control bylaw, a vicious dog must be muzzled, and if it exhibits aggressive behaviour in an off-leash area, it must be leashed immediately. For more information about dog off-leash areas and Burnaby’s animal control bylaw, which is currently under review, visit www.burnaby.ca.
Two young offenders have been charged with three counts of robbery after they allegedly stole personal items from people leaving the Metrotown Skytrain area. “There were three robberies over that weekend and they were in relatively close time frames,” said Cpl. Dave Reid of the Burnaby RCMP. According to Reid, the first theft happened early morning May 18, when someone was leaving the Metrotown SkyTrain station and walking through an adjacent alley. The second robbery happened later that day, when someone was walking from the station to the residential neighbourhood behind it. The last one was again later the same day, on the street beneath the station. RCMP was quickly notified about the robberies and given a description of the suspects – two young black men – which the RCMP then sent out to security guards and Transit Police patrolling the area. A short while later, police were alerted by a security Robberies Page 4
Burnaby couple found dead in trailer Cayley Dobie staff reporter
Police are saying a gas leak caused the death of a Burnaby couple who were found dead in their trailer Sunday evening. Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Dave Reid said a 56-year-old man and 59-year-old woman were found dead in a converted work trailer they had been living in near 14th 6
Avenue and Willard Street in South Burnaby. “The gentleman didn’t show up for work and someone from the office basically sent a coworker over to check on his well-being and the guy went into the trailer and found them,” Reid said. The coworker called the fire department who then dispatched the RCMP and emergency services. After a short
investigation, police discovered the man had recently made some repairs to a propane generator, which was being vented through an exhaust window in the trailer. “A witness we spoke to had assisted this guy, who was deceased, to actually work on the exhaust and they had done some work on the propane generator,” he said. “They had closed the window while they were making repairs and they simply

forgot to reopen it.” Reid said it’s still unknown whether or not the couple died Sunday, shortly before they were found, or sometime during the previous two days. “The coroners were in attendance and it appears at this point that it is purely accidental,” he said. Burnaby RCMP is waiting to verify the couple’s identity with family before releasing any names.

Metrotown SkyTrain expansion moves ahead Improved access for cyclists and pedestrians in the new plan Stefania Seccia staff reporter
Located in the heart of the Metrotown area facing plenty of change, TransLink is proposing more of it with the expansion of its Metrotown SkyTrain station and a new site for its bus exchange in the area. At its May 27 meeting, Burnaby council reviewed the current series of new rezoning applications for information. TransLink has applied for a rezoning bylaw amendment to accommodate expansion and upgrades to the existing Metrotown SkyTrain station, including the relocation of its bus exchange in “keeping with the city’s new public realm and urban design standards in Metrotown,” a city report states. The transit authority
has projected the construction period to be between April 2014 and April 2016. “Planning staff generally support the new Metrotown SkyTrain concept, which includes a new transit exchange and provision of a number of significant enhancements to the public realm,” the report states. The proposed concept also provides community and public benefits through the encouragement of all transportation modes and integrating the station with the changing neighbourhood surrounding it, according to the report. There are many developments currently under construction in the station’s immediate area, and about 60,000 riders use the station every day – making it the second busiest station in the region. “Transit ridership demand is projected to increase by six per cent per year,” the report states. “As such, TransLink has identified several stations along the Expo Line route
You’re Invited Metrotown SkyTrain Station and Exchange Upgrades Open House
for station upgrades relating to improved capacity, accessibility, operations, general station design and integration with the broader transit fare-gate ticketing system.” On Oct. 15, 2007, council approved in principal a conceptual approach for improvements for the station, based on findings of the Metrotown Transit Village Study. The study was meant to identify concepts to enhance the use of alternative modes of traveling to Metrotown using the station, transit exchange, pedestrian and bike connections. Key aspects of the proposed expansion and improvements to the Burnaby station include accommodating the station’s functional requirements with station entrances located at the eastern and western ends of the station, elevator access to the platform level, and the extension of the station platform to increase its capacity. There are also plans to improve access for
cyclists, pedestrians and transit users by improving pedestrian and cycle crossings that extend from Central Boulevard down to Beresford Street featuring a weather protection canopy; special paving and lighting; improved pedestrian access through the Station Square development sites; a space for small cafes, retail kiosks and other commercial amenities; and the potential to have public washrooms, bike storage and repair facilities within the station. A new bus exchange site has been identified along the south side of the station area, adjoining the B.C. Parkway Urban Trail between McKay and Dow avenues, which would mean the current bus area would be decommissioned and potentially reclaimed by Metropolis at Metrotown Mall for more retail space. “(The new exchange) would accommodate bus stopping areas, layover spaces, and a bus lane for all bus lines servicing
Metrotown,” the report states. Council approved the planning and building department’s recommendation to work with TransLink to prepare a detailed development plan for a future public hearing. Council was reluctant to approve the preliminary information about TransLink’s expansion as they felt TransLink was trying to move too quick-
ly with this. But they were told there would be further workshops for council to learn more about the expansion and they would have the opportunity to bring up concerns later if they still have issues with the proposal. Mayor Derek Corrigan said his primary concern was the proposal to move the bus loop to Beresford Street, because it did not match their vision for that area.

Metrotown SkyTrain Station is the second busiest station in TransLink’s network, and one of the original Expo Line stations opened in 1986. Metrotown is also a major bus exchange, with direct bus services to almost every sub-regional service area. Both facilities are operating at or over capacity, and have significant access and accessibility challenges. With funding provided through the Building Canada Fund, TransLink, in partnership with the Federal and Provincial governments, is about to undertake substantial upgrades to the station and bus exchange.

For starters, when someone includes false, incorrect or misleading information in a job application and gets caught, as Shin did, it is grounds for dismissal. So why, then, is Jane Shin still around? Shin says her misleading resume was the result of miscommunication and a poorly written resume, but I’m not buying that explanation, nor are many others. Besides which, how is someone who can’t even draft an accurate, truthful resume supposed to rep-

Few benefits from pipeline Dear Editor:
Re: Pundits were wrong about Libs, column, Burnaby NOW, May 22. I am writing in response to Keith Baldrey’s opinion piece. I want to counter the general belief that not supporting the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion, as Adrian Dix has done, is opposing economic development. The proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline will have little economic benefit for B.C. Aside from some temporary construction jobs to build it, there will be few jobs for operating it. Alberta will be the one to benefit – where the diluted bitumen from the tar
sands is extracted. Shareholders and executives will also obviously benefit. In actual fact, B.C. will lose economically (and environmentally) when ruptures and spills happen (not a matter of “if,” but “when” and “how much,” as the industry admits spills are inevitable) on land, in streams and especially off our coast from the increased tanker traffic. B.C. taxpayers will be paying most of the cleanup costs, and our fisheries and other industries will suffer, not to mention the land and marine wildlife, clean air and water. It is unfortunate that Dix and the NDP did not frame their opposition to the pipeline well, nor defend it well. Now that Christy Clark and the B.C. Liberals have won the election, it can be perceived that they now have a new stronger mandate of supporting the pipeline (and Enbridge and any other pipeline proposals that may come forward). They can continue supporting the dirty, polluting and climate altering oil industry, with little economic benefit for B.C. The new government, instead should focus on developing cleaner, more sustainable industries, that create good green jobs and larger, longer term economic benefits for B.C., such as developing more public transit infrastructure, energy retrofitting of buildings and tourism. My hope is that they will support a brighter, cleaner future. We will see what happens in the next few interesting years.

Unions: Contract imposed? continued from page 6
five-year contract may be a different story). Still, it’s clear the B.C. Liberals are intent on trying a radically different approach in this round of talks with the BCTF. Just days after the election, they bailed on the current set of negotiations, even though the union said progress was being made, in favour of shifting talks towards the 10-year plan. As for the unionized support staff, they’re looking for a wage increase in the neighbourhood of two per cent a year. Most of their locals have already taken strike votes, and Vancouver Sun education reporter Janet Steffenhagen reports the rest should do so by the end of next month. This sets the stage for a possible
confrontation between the unions and the B.C. Liberal government in the fall. Of course, it’s quite likely the government will simply impose a contract on both unions if they can’t be freely negotiated and if job action becomes problematic in schools. Nevertheless, this situation could be Premier Christy Clark’s first real test as an elected premier with a mandate. It is imperative that her government delivers its budget with its projected surplus if it wants to establish credibility when it comes to budget-making. This means there is very little money for wage increases in the education sector (school boards say there are no more savings to be found to fund wage hikes for employees).
So to get to that magic land of a balanced budget, Clark will have to hold firm against two public sector unions with their hands stretched out. Both unions no doubt expected to be dealing with a newly elected NDP government in contract talks, and therefore probably assumed they were in for an easier ride. But the upset win by the B.C. Liberals changed many things, not the least of which has to be the expectations of the public sector unions.

Pipeline: More info by June 27 continued from page 1
the company wants to twin the line and expand capacity from 300,000 barrels of oil per day to 890,000, bringing an estimated 408 tankers to the Burrard Inlet per year. Kinder Morgan’s storage tanks and the Westridge Marine Terminal, where tankers fill up with crude, are both in Burnaby, and the existing pipeline runs close to some local homes and schools. In a cover letter sent to the board, Kinder Morgan notes it’s not clear if the project would be subject to environmental review because most of the new pipeline will be adjacent to the existing one, but the company is arguing for one anyway, given the level of public interest in the project. Kinder Morgan plans to post more information on local route options at talk. transmountain.com/burnaby by June 27. To see the project description, go to the National Energy Board website, bit. ly/12UMCOE, and click on Fetch to download the documents.

environment and land use. Routing has not been determined in any community, and we are still seeking feedback. We are rolling out route options over the next few weeks, moving down the line.” Clement said the company is still studying the route corridor. “Since we announced the expansion project in April 2012, we planned to twin the existing line along the right-of-way where practical. The land in Burnaby looks much different than it did in 1953, when the existing line was first built. Our ongoing study of the route corridor, along with asking for feedback from the municipalities, as well as the public, will determine the route with the least impact to urban areas,” she wrote in an email to the NOW. The application will include details on the proposed route, and it’s the file the board will review while deciding whether or not to approve the project. Kinder Morgan’s 1,150-kilometre line has been in operation since the 1950s, but

Learn for Fun - Teach for Pleasure at the Community Centred College for the Retired by Kelina Kwan
A recent news report on how retirement can affect your health, advocated staying active after retirement or not retiring at all in order to stay healthy. So if you have already retired, what can you do? Apparently, someone already thought of the answer 40 years ago. When Mabel Dunham retired more than 40 years ago, she decided to enroll for the Bachelor of Education and Adult Education diploma at UBC. She graduated in 1972. She was over 60 years old. Convinced other people her age would also be interested in furthering their education, it became Mabel’s mission to structure a self-help college. In 1973, she began by offering a course at Edmonds House - a newly opened senior citizens centre in Burnaby. This was the beginning of a new and exciting program for people over the age of 55. The response and interest proved
there is no age barrier for the desire to learn new things. From this beginning, the Community Centred College for the Retired was born, and they have just celebrated their 40th Anniversary. I recently talked to Dave Mannings, Board Director of the College. He mused that the College is the beginning of continuing senior education, and a lot of other organizations have since picked up on the idea. Today, the Community Centred College for the Retired focuses on skill-building courses rather than academic courses. “When people get a new computer, or a new program, they want to learn something about that. Or they want to travel and they want to learn little bit of French or Spanish or Mandarin. Or ladies want to learn how to quilt. Or they want to learn how to play the piano.” Mannings said. “These are possibilities we

offer.” The College is also always looking for volunteers, because courses are taught by senior volunteers who have appropriate backgrounds and experience. So the College is not only a place for seniors to keep active by learning, but also by teaching and sharing. “I was talking to the registrar the other day, and she was looking for a new piano teacher.” said Mannings. “Sometimes we are not sure what people out there can do, so when we are talking to the public, we ask about their background, their education, and what they know that people may be interested to learn.” Mannings encourages people to tell them what they know, and what they want to learn so the College can provide a variety of relevant and interesting courses. The College has 3 classrooms – a general room, a computer room and a music room. Classes run on a semester basis, so they are now just wrapping up their Spring-semester. There are no courses during July and August, and the College reopens after Labour Day in September. If you are not interested in semester-
long courses, there are also workshops that are one or two sessions long, and the College has a wide range of workshops to choose from. When asked how courses are received by the community, Mannings said “It’s a very positive and enjoyable experience for all. It’s not only about learning, it is also a social and friendship-building environment where seniors sit around, chat and have a cup of coffee.” For some, the College is the only occasion they come out and meet other people, so it is a much valued and fun activity. “Sometimes, people enjoy the courses so much that they take them again!” Mannings said. Amongst the most popular courses is Genealogy. It’s taught by a member of the BC Genealogy Society. “People want to know their family history, their ancestry. We are one of the few places where people can come and do deep exploration of their history because we have the full version of ancestry.com. If you try to get it on your own, it will be very expensive.” Mannings commented.
Come join us and all of our fantastic volunteers on Saturday, June 1st for the annual Hats Off Day festival.There will be a parade, games, food and fun for people of all ages! Hats Off Day is continually voted Burnaby’s most popular festival, so don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to experience some real community ﬂavour!
The College constantly looks for older volunteer teachers as they often have more time on hand. However, they are not ruling out younger volunteers who want to teach. The College website has an “In search of” section that lists which courses need instructors. It’s a good place to start if you want to volunteer. Potential volunteers are interviewed and if everything goes well, courses will be scheduled. “Learn for fun and teach for pleasure” is the motto of the College. There is still plenty to do after retirement after all, and the Community Centred College is the place to be. To volunteer as a course teacher, please call 604.517.8732 Monday to Friday between 9am to 3pm, or visit www.cccrburnaby.org for more information.

‘I WASN’T SURE I WAS GOING TO WAKE UP EVERYDAY, THAT’S HOW BAD IT WAS,’ – PREET MARWAHA
Near-death experience inspires biz owner Organic food company rebuilds in Burnaby after fire destroys Vancouver site Stefania Seccia staff reporter
It all started with a will to survive and now it’s about moving on from a devastating fire. OrganicLives is setting up a café in Galloways Specialty Foods in South Burnaby after a fire vanquished its operations in Vancouver. The new café is set to open in the next two months. “We’re essentially opening ourselves up in Burnaby,” said Preet Marwaha, OrganicLives CEO and found- For a video and more er. “We had info, scan operations out with of Vancouver, which burnt down, and we’ve been looking for a new home to get ourselves re-set up to get started.” But OrganicLives almost didn’t happen if he hadn’t survived a tumultuous time in his life, Marwaha said. He was 19 when doctors were scrambling to find out what was slowly killing him. Marwaha was told it was everything from HIV to a brain issue, to wanting to amputate his foot and take out his intestines. “It’s not a fun place to be. And it was through that experience – coming out the other side, changing the ways that I was eating through some really good guides and mentorship – (that) ended up saving my life,” he said. “I got to a point in my life where I had to quit everything I was doing. I had to quit school, quit hockey, quit working. I just couldn’t do anything anymore because I felt like I was stoned all the time.” Marwaha said that’s when his interest in food sparked. “I wasn’t sure I was going to wake up everyday,” he said. “That’s how bad it was.” After studying food and using different guides, Marwaha’s health recovered and he moved on with his life. He finished school and began a career in IT. Marwaha said he never stopped caring about food and how it relates to the body, and seven years ago he took it to the next level. “It really started out as a vision at the

Good food: Preet Marwaha is the CEO and founder of OrganicLives, which is setting up a café in Burnaby with plans to open this summer. The café will be in Galloway Specialty Foods in South Burnaby. time,” he said. “I’d been spending so many years up until that point studying food and the science behind food, and the understanding of our body and how it all connects.” Marwaha left the corporate world and founded OrganicLives, which only started out as a website. “It went from an information portal on the Internet ... to a store, to a warehouse, to a kitchen, to a restaurant, to a full-production facility,” he said. “All this happened so quickly. Obviously because there’s a need for it.” OrganicLives has hundreds of products it sells internally and at various grocery stores across the Lower Mainland – all of which are certified organic, according to Marwaha. “For us, it’s not about organic,” he said. “Organic is one of the pillars of what we
do. So there’s organic, sustainable, fairly traded, it’s good for the body and it’s good for the planet. Those are the principles of OrganicLives – and we have to have all of them.” Marwaha said he and his crew try to offer as many local products as possible, but they also travel the world in search of farmers who meet their criteria when growing food. “It’s a mixture,” he said. “What we can get local, what we can find local from that small family farm, sustainably grown, we do. There’s some stuff we just cannot get here locally. There’s a lot of amazing farmers around the world that are doing really great things and if we can find ways to work with them and support them, we will.” Another principle for OrganicLives is keeping its product prices low, according
to Marwaha. “Part of our values right from the get go was accessibility and affordability,” he said. “(For) some people it’s not an issue, for other people it’s a struggle. “I’ve always been criticized for our prices being too low, (but) this is not about building this ridiculously profitable empire – it’s about making it sustainable.” Marwaha said OrganicLives will continue to sell food he wants to eat, and hopes to change how people think about food in the process. “If it’s coming out of a factory, I’m not so interested in it,” he said. “That’s really it, is how do we cut out things that aren’t sustainable in the world and the way they’re producing them and growing them and even just the treatment of animals – and those are the things that are important to me.”
Burnaby-based company awarded military contract A Burnaby manufacturer has been awarded a US$5.6 million contract with Boeing to help build helicopters for military missions, including counter-terrorism efforts and medical evacuation. Weatherhhaven is a re-deployable shelter systems provider that will work with Boeing to modify special equipment shelters for 15 of Canada’s CH-147F helicopters.
“We are delighted to be working with Boeing to provide this important service to the Canadian military,” said Ray Castelli, Weatherhaven CEO, in a media release. “This is further proof that Canadian manufacturers have both the talent and design excellence to provide cutting-edge products for the aerospace and military markets.” The CH-147F medium-to-heavy lift helicopters are used in multi-mission military
operations domestically and abroad. The fleet will be based out of the Canadian Forces Base Petawawa in Ontario. “The CH-147F missions may include air mobile operations, special operations, casualty evacuation, tactical transport, medical evacuation, logistical transport, aid to civil power, counter-drug operations, counterterrorism operations, humanitarian assistance and peace-keeping support,” accord-
ing to the media release. “The helicopters – and Weatherhaven’s shelter systems – will operate in extremes of weather on deployed operations throughout the world during day and night conditions.” Boeing was awarded a contract for 15 helicopters by the Canadian government in 2009, and deliveries are expected to begin this year. – By Stefania Seccia, staff reporter

Pathway goes ahead Stefania Seccia staff reporter
A new pathway that will connect Chaffey and Halley avenues in Burnaby is going through, despite concerns of tenants being forced out. The Chaffey-Halley pathway will sit on city-owned property in the South Burnaby neighbourhood near Chaffey-Burke Elementary School. The city developed a pathway concept and presented it for public input in February. Questionnaires were sent to the 538 residents in the area and the open house was attended by 21 locals on Feb. 12. The city received a total of 34 questionnaires, and 24 were in support of the pathway. The 10 responses that opposed the pathway noted concerns of potential crime, increased noise and the construction cost of the pathway, according to a staff report. “Based on the public response received through the consultation process, it is proposed that the Chaffey-Halley pathway be endorsed, as presented to the public,” the planning and building report states. However, the family who has rented out the Halley Avenue home for more than 10 years will now have to pack up and go. The family renting the Halley Avenue home did not wish to comment to the NOW, but other locals have voiced concerns. Rick McGowan, a neighbour to the family for 12 years, said the report is missing a few key things. “I’m disappointed but not surprised that staff has recommended the pathway proceed at this time,” McGowan said in an email. “The recommendation to council
makes no mention of the eviction of my neighbour, nor is there mention of my submission in which I suggested the path should be part of a comprehensive bike strategy.” McGowan said he submitted a proposal to the city on behalf of his group, the Metrotown Area Green Improvement Coalition. The proposal outlined the need for a community garden, composting sites and for the city not to sell the disputed land, as it could be valuable for a future development of affordable housing units. “On the part of the proposal to sell the remaining property, I think it is ironic that our local government rightfully cries foul when the province plans to sell publicly owned land that could be used for affordable housing, while doing the exact same thing. Convenience trumps compassion, I guess.” In the past, Mayor Derek Corrigan told the Burnaby NOW that the city is not in the business of being a landlord. “Everybody who moves into a house owned by the city knows it’s temporary,” Corrigan said. “The rent, policy and information reflect it. It’s not a long-term rental.” Corrigan also said the city sometimes helps tenants relocate to another cityowned property. City staff will now work on the pathway’s development, which consists of a three-metre asphalt trail with pedestrian lighting and grassed shoulders, according to the report. “The completion of the pathway will provide a local community amenity that improves access and safety for pedestrian and bicycle movements in the neighbourhood,” the report states.

Businesses hopeful after election City business associations and owners prepare for business as usual with recently elected gov’t Stefania Seccia staff reporter
Burnaby business leaders believe it will be business as usual under the new Liberal government. Despite the B.C. NDP promises to boost small businesses, trades and improve tax credits for the film industry – the B.C. Liberals formed a majority government on a platform promoting a better economy. The Liberals campaigned hard on claims of balancing the provincial budget this year and promising a healthy economy under their guidance. Burnaby Board of Trade CEO Paul Holden says the City of Burnaby has a great relationship with representatives from both the Liberal and NDP camps, and doesn’t expect much change with the new government. “I think for us here in Burnaby, I don’t see there being many, if any, changes in the short term, at least,” Holden told the NOW in a phone interview. “Our role is to advocate for the needs of the business community, regardless of which stripe of government be in power.” Holden also said it’s too early to tell how the Liberals will do in the next four years, but the board of trade will continue to work with the government. “From our perspective, and the
perspectives from our neighbours, we expect those strong relationships to continue,” he said. “I think it’ll be up to a lot of groups, and groups like ours, … to make sure (the constituent’s) interests are well served.” Over in the B.C. film camp, president of Mammoth Studios in Burnaby and North Shore Studios, Peter Leitch, said he hopes the new government will help the industry be competitive. “I think it was a big surprise for everyone,” Leitch said about the election results. “But we’re looking forward to working with the new Liberal government – we’ve had a good relationship in the past with them, we’ve worked closely with them.” He said the industry will continue to lobby for better tax credits to become more competitive with Quebec and Ontario in attracting filmmakers. Leitch noted how in the first quarter of this year, the local industry had slowed down dramatically. When the election was in its early phase, Leitch and other film heads attended a press event where NDP leader Adrian Dix announced his promise of implementing competitive tax credits if the NDP formed government. “We’re a non-partisan association,” he said. “We’ve got people supporting the Liberals and people supporting the NDP. “I’m optimistic that the Liberal government supports business and they’re going to work with us to try and grow the film business, which is in everyone’s best interest.” Leitch said the industry itself needs to do a better job describing the many benefits of having a successful film
industry. “One of the things we need to do a bit better is talk about the value of the creative sector going forward. I don’t think we’ve told the story as well as we could have,” he said. “We think it can be a big part of B.C.’s economy and we’re looking to take advantage of the opportunities.” The Hospital Employees’ Union spokesperson echoed Holden’s and Leitch’s statements about working with the Liberal government. “We’ll seek a constructive working relationship with (the) government on issues that matter to British Columbians around health care,” said Bonnie Pearson, the union’s secretary business manager. However, Pearson also said the union may have had a better relationship under an NDP government. “If there had been a different outcome, I expect that our voice would have been more respected at the table,” she said. “I think we’d have had a seat at the table in a way we’ve not experienced in the last couple of years.” She said in the last decade, the focus has tended to be on health-care professionals such as nurses and doctors, but other hospital staff members also play a critical role in providing care. Pearson said hospital support services from clerks, to those who purchase medical supplies and clean the rooms are also important to running an efficient and clean hospital. “Nonetheless, we’re going to seek to work with this government,” she added. “I think it’s clear that the electorate gave Christy Clark and her party a clear mandate.” email@example.com

Hetrick was visiting a friend in Paris who also teaches, and that friend’s students made cards for the kids back at Suncrest. The students are going to continue their long-distance correspondence via email.

The Heights gets ready to take its hat off to you Heights contributor
Have you ever wondered what Hastings Street would look like if it was filled with tens of thousands of celebrating people? Well you don’t have to wait too long! Jump down the rabbit hole and explore another side of Hastings Street on Saturday at Hats Off Day. The Heights merchants and community invite you to join in the festivities, as they take their hats off to you. Hastings Street from Boundary Road to Gamma Avenue will turn into a pedestrianonly zone from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. With a Mad Hatter theme, the 29th annual Hats Off Day will not disappoint. Anyone and everyone can celebrate by wearing the coolest and most unique hats they own. Who knows, you might even win a prize if you’re spotted wearing a neat hat. The day kicks off with the always popular pancake breakfast, hosted by the Burnaby Lions Club and Burnaby Community Connections. Head to Hastings Street and Alpha Avenue for breakfast (by donation.) At 9:30 a.m., the first ever Family Fun Dash will begin, where kids and families can race to the finish line and receive a special ribbon. There is a $5 entry fee per family, with all proceeds going to the Burnaby Fire Fighters Charitable Society.

At 10 a.m., Burnaby’s favourite parade begins. Be sure to arrive early to nab the best seats. After the parade, the street will be packed with families, friends, neighbours and merchants. There will be two specific kids’ zones at Macdonald to Ingleton avenues and at Alpha Avenue, and a variety of entertainers from one end of the street to the other. Don’t miss out on The Vancouver Circus School spectacle at Hastings Street and Ingleton Avenue – they will have shows at the top of every hour, starting at noon. Children and parents can also be whisked away on the Chevron Express train, from Willingdon to Ingleton avenues. You can also hang out at the Show and Shine and check out restored, classic and custom cars and motorcycles. Hats Off Day has something for everyone, and you will be hard pressed to find a festival with more energy and excitement. Parking restrictions will be in effect (see this issue of the Burnaby NOW for details.) As the roads will be closed and parking is limited, please try to arrive by transit. Please visit www.hatsoffday.com for more information, and for the 2013 Hats Off Day event program.

On your mark, get ready for Family Fun Dash Kids race part of this year’s Hats Off Day by Janaya Fuller-Evans The Heights Reporter
Local kids who want to dash into the action on Hats Off Day now have a chance to do just that. The Heights Merchants Association is hosting a Family Fun Dash. The event, sponsored by Chevron, offers kids a chance to get moving and to raise money for the Burnaby Firefighters Charitable Society. “Apparently, there used to be a five-K or a 10-K run in the Heights,” said Rachel Wolski, a RE/MAX Central realtor, who along with Rishel Tomlinson from Custom Mortgages, is organizing the run event. “Rishel and I are
Fun run: Rachel Wolski is one of the organizers for this year’s Family Fun Dash, being held before the parade at Hats Off Day. The run, for kids and their families, is a fundraiser for the Burnaby Firefighters Charitable Society.
both runners, so we were like, wouldn’t that be cool if there was some kind of run in the Heights?” The event involves a two-block dash down Hastings Street. To participate, kids need to have either a parent or sibling, who is 15 or older, as a teammate. “So each team is a total of two. Once they enter, they register through a website. It’s $5 to register, then they come to meet at 9 o’clock. Depending on their age, they start at different points along Hastings Street,” Wolski said. “There are four different age groups. Every age group has a block.”

Question: Is there any way to revitalize a 45-year-old snowball bush? This year’s blooms were very tiny and brown. On closer inspection, the leaves were full of tiny holes and covered in black aphids. Caroline Moore, via email

Question: My friend has a big rosemary bush in her backyard that she doesn’t want to keep. She doesn’t want to kill it either. How can I move it without killing it? Can I start a new, young rosemary from her bush? Mi Vuong, Vancouver

Answer: The viburnum leaf beetle is attacking your shrub. You’ll need to prune back and garbage all the twigs infested with eggs. These eggs contain the larvae that will begin eating the leaves later. Infested twigs have lines of little dark brown bumps. It’s best to remove these in the late fall or winter after the leaves have fallen. Once the larvae hatch in May, they scatter. Insecticidal soap will kill any larvae or beetles it contacts, but this is an awful lot of spraying if the whole bush is infested. Around June, these larvae crawl down the bush to pupate in the soil. These transform into beetles by the end of July and lay the eggs in twigs. It’s hard to control the adults because they can just fly away. In practice, you’d be unlikely to ever get an infection as large as your current one providing you prune your own bush every fall. Also an infection from a neighbourhood viburnum should be fairly small anyway, since the neighbour’s beetles would have their own tree close at hand to munch on.
Answer: An old rosemary doesn’t transplant well. Because a rosemary’s native home is on rocky Mediterranean cliffs, it develops long, far-ranging roots. The best way to move a rosemary is to dig up the biggest rootball you can. Do try – you may be lucky. If you take several cuttings first, you’ll have covered all bases. Each cutting should be five to 12 centimetres long and include a shoot cluster with several leaves. This shoot should be removed along with any leaves that would end up in the soil. The raw place left from shoot removal and the whole bottom end of each cutting should be dipped in rooting hormone. Roots start where the hormone contacts the raw areas. Rooting hormone comes in gel or in powder form. The gel sticks better. Potting mix for the cuttings should include perlite or grit and vermiculite or a little peat. Rosemary likes to be very well-drained. But give the

No guarantees in life A D V A N C E
here is an old saying that there are only two guarantees in life taxes and death. And while some of us may ﬁnd ways to evade paying taxes, none of us will ﬁnd ways to escape dying.
Whether it be the end of a long, fulﬁlled life or one shortened by illness, each of us has the power to decide how we wish to live until that time. What matters to us? This is where advance care planning becomes important. By identifying before hand what your values and beliefs are, questions like, “Will I be hooked up to a labyrinth of machines or undergo complex surgeries requiring tube feedings?” become less relevant, and the focus shifts to,“What gives my life meaning and will this intervention support it?” So many of us say we don’t want to be ventilated or fed by tube. But what if doing this would mean getting to see your kids graduate from university, play bridge or watch hockey? What if you needed a machine to help you live a meaningful life? Would you still say no? Every day, hundreds of families across the country are faced with this same dilemma – what would mom want? How would dad react? Add to this stress the need to answer these questions in less than three minutes and in consultation with other family members and friends. Not a very pleasant thought, is it? Advance care planning forces us to have those difﬁcult conversations with those we love now, rather
then during stressful, traumatic times. It provides patients with comfort, knowing that even when they are unable to communicate their wishes, someone they love and trust can do it for them. For family and friends, it provides peace of mind that the decisions they’ve made are the right ones.
So what does this all mean for the health-care system? In the U.S., the issue has become pressing for ﬁnancial reasons.The soaring cost of health care is the greatest threat to the country’s longterm solvency, and the terminally ill account for a lot of it.Twenty-ﬁve per cent of all Medicare spending is for the ﬁve per cent of patients who are in their ﬁnal year of life, and most of that money goes for care in their last couple of months which is of little apparent beneﬁt. Our medical system is excellent at trying to stave off death with $8,000-permonth chemotherapy, $3,000-per-day intensive care, $5,000-per-hour surgery. But ultimately, death comes.
C A R E
Almost all patients nearing the end of life know their ultimate fate.Yet they – along with their families and doctors – are often unprepared for the ﬁnal stage. In a recent multicentre Canadian study, titled ACCEPT, many elderly patients at high risk of dying had thought about and spoken with family about the types of life sustaining treatments they would want or not want, but that information had not been shared with their health-care professionals. Advance care planning can help patients and families navigate the emotional waters of living well and dying well so they can begin to say “good-bye”, “I’m sorry” and “I love you” before it’s too late. But advance care planning is not just for terminal, endof-life patients. It’s for all healthy capable adults. We can all beneﬁt from having these difﬁcult, personal conversations.They foster better communication between families and friends; forging bonds early in life that they can fall back on in their time of need. The long-term beneﬁts are immeasurable. Patients
P L A N N I N G
whose families experience trauma in the last days of their life often deal with depression long after their loved one is gone.The ripple effect is tremendous and often ignored. Fraser Health is recognized nationally for its pioneering work in promoting advance care planning; having a formal program for eight years with monthly education and information sessions for health-care providers and the public. An IpsosReid survey released in March 2012 showed that residents living in the Fraser Health region had the most positive results compared to the rest of the country. For most of us, medicine is there to ﬁght death and disease. We are constantly deluded by a fantasy of what medical science can and cannot do. Many of us live as if death is an option. It is time we remember that people die only once, and we need to have those hard discussions so they and their families can prepare for what is to come.

Bag To Earth makes products to ease the composting process and encourage participation in municipally run food waste programs By Noa Glouberman
ith municipalities across the Lower Mainland – including Vancouver, North Vancouver, Coquitlam, Burnaby, Richmond, Surrey and New Westminster, among others – participating in city-run food waste programs, one Canadian company has come up with a way to ease the composting process for residents. “The issue that crops up time and time again when you ask people to compost their kitchen waste in order to keep [organic material] out of the landﬁll is that it can, quite frankly, be a bit of a messy endeavour,” says Carson O’Neill, CEO of Bag To Earth Inc. “But the fact remains that these municipal food waste programs are a good idea. They really do work from an environmental perspective, so our aim is to make it easy and convenient – as hassle-free a process as possible – in order to encourage more participation.” He points to his ﬁrm’s Food Waste Bags, made from all-natural materials designed to disappear fully into the earth along with any

approved food scraps you toss into them. The bags, which come in two sizes, are comprised of a paper exterior lined with a patented natural ﬁbre made from cellulose – a kind of “clear paper” that’s been in use for at least a century. “We’ve actually had consumers contact us after looking inside our bags and mistaking the lining for plastic, which, of course, it isn’t,” O’Neill states. “Cellulose is a 100% compostable material that will fully disappear back into the earth, just like the coffee grounds, eggshells, spaghetti sauce and banana peels you put into our bags. In other words, it helps to complete the organic loop.” Plastic bags, even those labelled biodegradable or compostable, he continues, have no place in an organic food waste program, as they actually “back up” the process. “Say you line the green bin that’s in your kitchen or the larger one on your curb with plastic and then you put your organics directly into that plastic for pickup,” he says. “What you end up with is a plastic bag sitting in the city’s compost site and backing it up because it’s a non-compostable material. It totally negates the purpose.” By lining your kitchen and/or outdoor bin with a Bag To Earth Food Waste Bag, however, all of the material – food waste and bag – that’s taken from your home by your municipality will return to the earth in its entirety. The question remains: why would any well-meaning resident put plastic inside a bin, when the contents of that bin are meant for compost? O’Neill says it often comes down to cleanliness. “Leftover food scraps can be slimy and stinky, and even those of us with the best intentions when it comes to the environment may be deterred from participating in a composting program due to the mess,”
“Our aim is to make it easy and convenient – as hassle-free a process as possible – in order to encourage more participation in municipal food waste composting programs”

Waste not, want not
Bag To Earth Food Waste Bags are made from all-natural materials designed to disappear fully into the earth along with any approved food scraps you toss into them, thus helping to complete the organic loop. he says. “Our Food Waste Bags, however, solve this problem by keeping your bins clean and odour free.” Not only is the cellulose liner in every Bag To Earth Food Waste Bag totally leak-proof, keeping unpleasant smells from escaping is as simple as rolling down the top of the bag and sealing it with a clip or clothespin. Additionally, each Food Waste Bag’s ﬂat bottom means it can either be placed in your green bin or set as a standalone right on your kitchen counter. “When the bag’s full, just run it out and put it in your curbside bin,” says O’Neill. “No need to dump it out; the bag goes right in and returns to the earth completely, from the lining to the tie … right down to the print on the exterior. And, if you wish, line your outdoor bin with one of our larger-sized bags. You won’t need to hose down the interior due to food scraps getting stuck on the sides and making a mess.” Each small Bag To Earth Food Waste Bag, one of which will last a family of four about a week (just enough time to ﬁll and place curbside for pickup), costs approximately $0.50 – that’s just $26 a year. Again, O’Neill emphasizes the fact that “nothing about our Food Waste Bags compromises the composting aspect.” In fact, Bag To Earth relies on the success of municipally run food waste programs. “We follow these programs very closely and regularly update our website with the latest information from across the country,” he says. “Consumers are more than welcome to visit www.bagtoearth.com to ﬁnd details about their local food waste program, as well as a list of retailers in their area that carry our products.”

Allergies HEALTH PRODUCTS THAT REALLY WORK FOR A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE are a modern epidemic
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 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 selfrepair and the ability to rejuvenate tissues. !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.

in the throat cause snoring, also interrupted breathing and gasping for air (sleep apnea), which brings on being tired all day, need for napping, high blood pressure, strokes, heart attacks, irregular heart beat. Read below how Bell helps thousands, usually first night, inexpensively, with no side effects. Greatly improves quality of life and saves marriages. Survey says 48% snore and 75% are suffering if you include the silent suffering partners. To my surprise, after taking BellSound Sleep #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH ! Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS ! For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, #23 because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS !It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON.
!I tried numerous other remedies all my life that were not effective. Since I discovered #31 I do not have a stuffy nose and itchy eyes when pollen season comes around.

I was amazed. On 3rd day all #24 allergies were gone. It was like magic. Becky Gerber, 25, Dover, OH !Golfing without allergy attacks I tried all the medications and none worked. After taking 1 capsule in the morning I’m completely free of all symptoms. Richard Gamez, 74, San Antonio, TX !God bless you I went from doctor to doctor for years with allergy sinus problems.

No bodychecking until bantam Tom Berridge sports editor
Beginning this fall, bodychecking will not be part of the game for peewee aged hockey players in Canada. Hockey Canada wrapped up its 94th annual two-day general meeting in Charlottetown, P.E.I. on Saturday with a modification to playing rule 6.2b that removes all bodychecking from peewee levels and below within leagues governed by Hockey Canada, beginning in 2013/14. Speaking on behalf of the Burnaby Winter Club, minor hockey president Mark Rademaker said the club members support what Hockey Canada has done. “The scientific data is pretty compelling. Our biggest concern … is what happens in bantam,” Rademaker added. The AGM, attended by more than 250 delegates from across the country, approved the bodychecking ban. The move by the national body resulted in the Pacific Coast and B.C. associations taking the bodycheck question off the agenda for their subsequent AGMs. Hockey Canada took the premptive move following a growing body of research that bodychecking increases the frequency and severity of injuries, particularly concussions.

Wait for it: Bodychecking at the minor league level in Canada will be delayed until bantam following an adopted motion by Hockey Canada delegates at its annual general meeting in P.E.I. on Saturday.
Evidence compiled on a B.C. government fact sheet suggested that children under the age of 14 are especially vulnerable to injuries as a result of bodychecking. A recent study found that in Alberta, where bodychecking is allowed, injury rates were 3.3 times
higher and the frequency of concussions was almost four times higher for peewee-level players than in Quebec, where there is no bodychecking allowed. The delegates included Hockey Canada board of directors, officers, life members, associate members and representation
from all 13 branches, as well as from councils that oversee female hockey, junior hockey, minor hockey, senior hockey and hockey development. In addition to the rule change, Hockey Canada formed a work group “to build a mandatory national checking and instruc-
tional resource program to support the progressive implementation of checking skills at the novice to peewee levels to better prepare players for bodychecking at the bantam and midget levels,” the release stated. Bodycheck Page 39
Burnaby gymnast second in vault at nationals Tom Berridge sports editor
Briannah Tsang of Burnaby missed a gold medal at the Canadian artistic gymnastics championships by the smallest of margins. The 17-year-old Tsang scored 14.200 to finish in second place in the senior women’s vault in the all-age division at the nationals in Ottawa last week. The Burnaby North senior scored a session-best 9.100 in her first of two vault attempts in the event final on Saturday.
Tsang, who trains at Flicka Gymnastic Club in North Vancouver, was edged for the gold by event winner Megan Chant of Ontario’s World Class gym club by 0.025 of a point. Tsang was also the highest placing gymnast from B.C. in the senior all-around, finishing 10th overall with a total of score of 50.400, including a session-best 14.400 in the vault. She also placed sixth on floor exercises with a 13.275 score. Earlier in the qualifiers, Tsang placed ninth on floor and failed to move on to the event final.
Tsang was also 14th and 15th on the uneven bars and balance beam, respectively, in the senior all-around. Ellie Black of Nova Scotia won both beam and floor finals en route to the all-around title with a 54.550 total. Itzia San Roman of Burnaby also topped all B.C. gymnasts in the novice women’s open all-age and 16-and-over all-around sessions. San Roman, who trains at Phoenix in Vancouver, tied for 15th place in the all-age division with a combined 50.525 score that

included a top-10 score on floor and an 11th-best on uneven bars. She also posted a ninth-place 50.875 all-around score in the 16and-over division that included a third-place score of 12.550 on beam and a fourth-place score of 13.375 on floor. Younger sister Atzin San Roman of Phoenix was 13th overall at the national open 13-to-15 age division. Atzin had a best seventh-place on floor exercises and a ninthplace finish on bars. She finished with a 46.625 total score in the four-event all-around.

Senior closes out career with title Junior B Lakers off to 6-1 start Tom Berridge
Helen Crofts finished off her collegiate career at Simon Fraser University like a champion. The Clan senior added an NCAA Division II national outdoor track and field title to her mantle following a win in the women’s 800 metres at the championships in Pueblo, Colorado on Saturday. Crofts took an early lead and held off the competition to win by more than a second in the metric halfmile run in a track record time of 2:08.18. Crofts’ time was more than five seconds off the championship record of set by Teena Colebrook of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 1990 and well off the collegiate record of 1:59.11 set by Wisconsin’s Suzy Hamilton in the same year. “I was able to get out to an early lead. It wasn’t a really fast place and the competition was close throughout. I was just able to pull away at the end,” said Crofts in a press release. Crofts finished more than a second ahead of runner-up Jaylen Rogers of Angelo State.
Earlier in the season, Crofts also won the NCAA Div. II indoor 800m title. SFU garnered all 18 of its women’s team points in the middle distance race. Lindsey Butterworth finished just off the podium in fourth place in a time of 2:10.03, while Sarah Sawatzky was sixthplace time was 2:10.87. All three runners earned AllAmerican status for their performances. Butterworth and Sawatzky, both juniors, will return to the Clan program next year. SFU’s 4x400m relay team of Crofts, Sawtzky, Michaela Kane and Chantel Desch finished in sixth place in the prelimaries and did not qualify for the final. Discus thrower Jade Richardson also missed earning a team points, placing ninth with a throw of 45.26 metres in the women’s event. “I think we’ve proven we can compete at this level,” said Clan head coach Britt Townsend in the release. For Crofts, it was a fitting finale to a fine postsecondary track career. On top of her two NCAA titles, Crofts also won two

“This was a great way to finish my Clan career,” Crofts added. “Winning this title was the goal at the beginning of the season. I think as a group, we showed how strong we are, having three girls in the final.”
The Burnaby Lakers are off to a fast season start in the West Coast Junior Lacrosse League. The junior B Lakers improved their early season record to 6-1 following an 11-6 victory over last year’s playoff semifinalist Richmond Roadrunners at Minoru Arena last Friday. Playing with just nine runners against Richmond’s full bench, the Lakers received big games from Aaron Roberts and team captain Kevan Galte to pace Burnaby to its sixth win in seven starts. Galte, who is coming off a recent shoulder injury, showed no signs of having been out of practice, pacing the winners with four goals and four assists. Roberts, who currently leads the league with 21 goals and is second in overall scoring with 34 points, also potted four goals while adding two helpers for Burnaby. The Lakers fell behind 4-2 after the opening 20 minutes but reversed the score line in the middle stanza to head into the third period tied 6-6. Burnaby’s runners kept up the attack, scoring five times in the final frame while rookie goalie Cody Gilliam shut out the home team the rest of the way, finishing the game with 39 saves. Gilliam is currently fourth overall in the league with a 0.884 save percentage and is first in that category among goalies who have played three games or more. He also leads the league in saves with 281 stops. Burnaby is currently in a second-place tie with Port Coquitlam. Delta leads the Jr. B loop with a record of 7-1-1. Burnaby took on No. 1 Delta at the Ladner Leisure Centre Monday (after NOW deadlines). The Jr. B Lakers home games are held at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Saturdays, beginning at 8 p.m.

Senior A Lakers still winless after two WLA season starts Tom Berridge
The Burnaby Lakers have had enough of Vancouver Island, at least for the moment. The senior A Lakers lost to an Island team for the second time in as many weeks following a 14-8 loss to the unbeaten firstplace Vicoria Shamrocks at Bear Mountain Arena on Friday night. In their home and Western Lacrosse Association opener last week, Burnaby fell to the Nanaimo Timbermen by a single goal. This time out, the Lakers were facing arguably the toughest team in the seventeam loop. Withfiveplayers,including off-season pickup Scott Ranger – who all played together on the National Lacrosse League western semifinalist Calgary Roughnecks this season – Victoria’s Jeff Shattler said the Shamrocks have been assembled with a Mann Cup in mind. “We want to finish first.

Bodycheck: Burnaby Minor in support continued from page 37
A driving factor towards the ban was the risk and liability going forward in light of the growing body of research that recommends postponing bodychecking until later in a child’s physical development. A ban on bodychecking at the peewee levels would allow young 11- and 12-year-
old players to develop without fear of injury, said Rademaker. “You can’t argue with the facts,” he said. The Burnaby Minor Hockey Association is also in full support of Hockey Canada’s rule change on bodychecking, said spokesperson Larry Hayes.
