A broken promise? Burnaby Arts Council has been waiting since 1973 for a new art gallery Stefania Seccia staff reporter

After waiting for a promised new art gallery since 1973, the Burnaby Arts Council wants to take it off its wish-list. On Monday night, the arts council’s Irene McCutcheon, director, and Brian Daniel, vice-president, told city council that a new art gallery would be an economic generator if placed in a better location. “The new facility would make art and culture accessible to all, from the serious collector to the building artist found in every school,” said McCutcheon, who is also an artist. “As a cultural beacon for the community, the art gallery needs to be highly visible, (and an) architecturally distinguished building – well designed, staffed by experienced professionals – with high-level collections, exhibitions and Gallery Page 4

Cemetery construction frustrates neighbours Stefania Seccia staff reporter

The residents near Burnaby’s Ocean View Burial Park are tired of scratching their heads in trying to figure out what the cemetery’s next move is. Gordon Smith, who lives across the street from Ocean View on Arbor Street, expressed his and his neighbours’ frustrations at what he calls a marble wall going up in the community.

2961 Norland Avenue, Burnaby

Ocean View is run by Dignity Memorial, which is one of the largest networks of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers in North America. Smith says the cemetery is building three more mausoleums that are 37 feet high, 100 ft. long and 80 ft. wide, which will form a quadrangle. “The effect of this will be a wall of marble-faced concrete at least 180 ft. long in the clear view of anybody who lives near the area or anybody who passes along

Joffre (Avenue),” Smith told city council Monday night. “So far as we know, this proposal has never come before anyone officially, but the planning department has in its possession the drawings for the eastwest building.” Smith said the original paintings made up show that trees would line the site, but they do not exist. “There are grave sites instead,” he added. “To date, Dignity Memorial has made no effort to do anything to contact

us.” Smith said the neighbourhood wants to see the full-site plan. “We’d like to know exactly what they propose to do,” he said. “We do not believe that a multi-national corporation such as Dignity Memorial does not have a long-term plan for development. “And we’d like to see it before they go further.” Cemetery Page 3

Pushing for reform


Burnaby resident David Huntley presented local MP Kennedy Stewart with a petition calling for public consultation and proportional representation on Sunday.

Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

A handful of Burnaby residents and one person from New Westminster presented a petition to MP Kennedy Stewart on Sunday, calling for electoral reform. The Burnaby/New Westminster Citizens for Voting Equality, which is comprised of four Burnaby members and one New Westminster resident, collected signatures on a petition calling for public consultation and proportional representation, a system in which the House of Commons seats are distributed in accordance with the popular vote. “The general idea is people get what they vote for,” said group spokesperson and Burnaby resident David Huntley. Proponents of proportional representation argue the system is more democratic than the first-past-the-post model currently in use. “The government has 39 per cent of the vote, but they have 100 per cent of the power. This is typical of the first-past-thepost system,” Huntley added.

Larry Wright/burnaby now

In all, the group collected approximately 120 signatures. Huntley presented the petition to Stewart on Saturday, June 15. The petition is part of a larger campaign, spearheaded by Fair Vote Canada. According to Wayne Smith, executive director of Fair Vote Canada, volunteers

across the country have gathered enough signatures to present the petition to MPs in 30 ridings. Fair Vote Canada has support from all the major parties, except the Conservatives, although Smith said prime minister Stephen Harper has expressed support for proportional representation in

the past. “Being in power, they’re not interested in changing the system,” he said. “That’s typical.” For more information, go to www.fair

Cemetery: Burnaby is limited in its authority continued from page 1

Smith said it’s not the first issue the neighbourhood has had with the cemetery – and that the neighbourhood is paranoid when it comes to Ocean View’s development. Smith noted that when construction was happening before, crews were starting work around 5 a.m., despite bylaws stating work can’t start until 7 a.m. “Building inspectors last time around went down there on half a dozen locations because they were starting at 5 and 6 o’clock in the morning where they were building the original one,” he said. “Now they start precisely at 7, but there’s very frequently a line up of dump trucks on Joffre (Avenue), engines idling, any time after 6 o’clock.” Mayor Derek Corrigan asked staff to prepare a report to address the issues brought up by Smith. Corrigan also noted the city’s limited authority over cemeteries, as it’s under provincial jurisdiction. “We’ve been down this road, attempting to assert authority over the cemeteries and meeting with legal requirements that come from the provincial government, that

the provincial government has been determined to uphold even with municipalities opposing them,” he said. “It’s difficult and we’ll try again to explain in a report what the limitations of our (authority is).” Smith asked council to convince Dignity Memorial to involve the community in its plans. “I don’t want to plug up Joffre (Avenue) with the cars of my neighbors because that’s just going to cause more problems,” he said. “They need to talk to us. They need to tell us what’s going on.” Coun. Nick Volkow said that there’s no difference between the mausoleums and the self-storage units on Marine Drive. “Our authority is very limited … but I think the opportunity for myself as a councillor (is) to be able to berate these so-called corporate citizens in our community, in the court of public opinions, is always a good thing.” Volkow said he’s also curious about the cemetery’s overall plan. “I wonder what they’re planning five to 10 years down the road,” he added. Volkow also noted that if the trucks are idling in the morning, the city should ticket them.

educational programs.” McCutcheon said the council’s advocacy committee has been asking for a new art gallery in Metrotown Civic Square, by the Bob Prittie library in the eastern grassy field, for the past two years. “Most importantly it needs to be a place for people to gather and celebrate the visual arts,” she said to council. “An art gallery is not an elitist thing at all. It’s a place for everyone.” A new art gallery would benefit the city as a whole, McCutcheon added. She also said there’s about $6 million worth of contemporary prints sitting in storage. “Because of the 2.8 acres of land, accessibility and location, socially an art gallery benefits the community in sharing and celebrating creativity and design,” she said. “Economically, an art gallery attracts business and people. It creates economic spinoffs, anchors cultural activity in Metrotown Civic Square by creating a focus, a soul, a heart, a dynamic place.” According to Daniel, this issue has been going on since 1973, when a new art gallery was a priority and had plans made up. In 1987, a proposed art gallery and performing arts theatre in civic square were part of the original plans beside the Bob Prittie library. Then in 1998, there was another plan for an art

Fraser Institute ranks STM No. 1 school in Burnaby Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The Fraser Institute has ranked St. Thomas More Collegiate as the top school in Burnaby, according to the think-tank’s annual Report Card. Every year, the right-leaning Fraser Institute ranks B.C. secondary and elementary schools based on a number of factors, mainly results from the foundation skills assessment, annual provincewide reading, writing and math tests for grades 4 and 7 students. St. Thomas More, an independent Catholic school, ranked first in Burnaby and 21st in the province, while Burnaby Mountain Secondary came in second in the city and 83rd in B.C. Carver Christian High School ranked third in Burnaby and 103rd in the province. Byrne Creek Secondary, a school with a high number of refugee students, was ranked last in the city and 251st out of 260 schools ranked. The Fraser Institute’s Report Card is meant to measure overall school performance and give the public a chance to compare secondary and elementary schools, based on rankings. Private schools typically come out on top every year, something that irks the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and at least one local father. Burnaby resident Peter Madden characterized the Report Card as bogus. “It’s front-end loaded to reflect the reality of the private-school system and does not reflect the reality of a public-

school system, which has no choice but to accept every student that applies,” Madden said. “It’s very easy to come out smelling like roses if you can be highly selective in who you choose to be students in your school.” Madden’s son graduated from Burnaby South Secondary, which ranked seventh in Burnaby and 173rd in the province in this year’s Report Card, yet he’s excelled academically and graduated from UBC’s medical school as class valedictorian. “It tells me that the Fraser Institute’s report is biased,” Madden asked. “(My son) wasn’t the only one who graduated with high marks,” he said, adding many Burnaby South students were doing well academically. “It’s very annoying to have this rightwing think-tank … that thinks the be-all and end-all is the private school system,” he said. In a Simon Fraser University press release, education professor Daniel Laitsch said the Report Card is an example of advocacy research designed to promote a particular world view. “The formula used to rank schools inherently favours schools with competitive admissions standards, while penalizing schools working with students achieving at a variety of levels,” Laitsch said. “It is based entirely on a narrow body of mandatory exams given in specific grades and courses, ignoring the broader body of elective coursework and student outcomes.”

born of ignorance. They’re not looking for sympathy – just a bit of human understanding. How ignorant can people be about the barriers the disabled face? Let’s ask the folks at Fraser Health, who decided to burden wheelchair users in their facilities with $25/month “maintenance” fees. To add insult to injury, 60 per cent of clients in affected facilities depend on wheelchairs, many donated and not even provided by Fraser Health itself.

Let’s ask the province that passed legislation last fall to allow this travesty – that same government has now boosted its top-earning bureaucrats’ salaries, each to the tune of $35,000 per year. Just three of those raises total more than the $100,000 that Fraser Health expects to take away from its disabled clients. It’s astounding that the one place our disabled brethren should never have to want for understanding has thrown up yet another barrier for wheelchair users.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR What’s next? Banning fun? Dear Editor:

Re: Not so sweet sounds of summer, Letters to the editor, Burnaby NOW, June 12. I remember the days waiting for the ice-cream truck to come rolling down our east end street. It was a real big deal for us kids. Some of us had money to buy a cone, others did not. No matter, it was definitely something we looked forward to. Now it would appear that Ken Erickson is really upset with this long-standing tradition. After my first reading of his anti-ice-cream truck rant, I thought it was perhaps an April Fool’s joke. But wait, it’s the middle of June, this guy is serious!

Come on Ken get real … banning ice-cream trucks? What’s next, kids’ street hockey, basketball hoops, birthday parties in backyards, or better yet, lets just ban kids and fun! Get a life Ken. This is part of growing up and being a kid. There are other causes you may wish to involve yourself with if you want to help kids, what about the scourge of child labour, child poverty or disabled young people? As for the “stupid little ditty that stays in my head,” maybe that’s a sign you really like it and you’re trying to remember the words so you can sing along. If that’s not the case, just run and hide for the minute it takes for the “noise” to go away. Gord Larkin, Burnaby

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Fire Senator Mike Duffy

Clean up after yourselves

Senator Mike Duffy claiming $90,172 was a serious wrong. Although he paid back the full amount with money from Nigel Wright, a former chief of staff in the prime minister’s office, that does not wash away the wrongdoing. Sebnator Duffy cannot cross the floor and remain as an independent senator and claim $132,000 per month. That is immoral. He was not elected by the public but was nominated by his friend Stephen Harper in the Upper House. Therefore, he cannot cross the floor at his will. He must be fired to save the dignity of the Senate.

I am just writing to create more awareness of an issue that has been on my mind since I moved here to Burnaby in 2010. I live very close to the Metrotown mall. I take my son to the park near my house on Silver Avenue, and it is like walking in a garbage dump. There is litter everywhere … plastic bags, dirty tissues, cigarette butts, even dirty baby diapers! There are children playing in that park every day, and they have to play in all that mess. Last year, I went to the park with my son to see how much litter we could pick up in the space of an hour. It was shocking, to say the least. My son goes to Maywood Community School, and it is horrifying to see the overflowing garbage bins and litter in the lanes there. I have also seen rats at the school. Surely these are all health hazards and people are just turning a blind eye. Cleanliness is not only the responsibility of the city and parks maintenance staff, it is more a responsibility of the people. B.C. is such a beautiful province, but people have turned it into a dump. Why can’t city council take action? Start fining people who are caught littering and see what a difference it will make. I have seen “fine for littering” signage on highways; why is it not possible to have the same here? Why do people have to put up with living in filth, just because of others’ irresponsible behaviour? I hope someone will pay attention to this very disturbing issue and take action.

Liberals back to business Dear Editor:

The dust has hardly settled, and the B.C. Liberals are already deep into the public trough, increasing salaries of the faithful up to $75,000. If there is an outcry, they will use the old car dealer shtick and roll back to, say, $60,000 so we feel we are getting a bargain. Then, using the old Liberal hocuspocus, they will show us how it is actually costing us less. I wish they would work some of that magic on my pension. Anyway, to those of you who didn’t bother to vote and to a lesser degree to those who voted Liberal, you asked for it!

Coal: Export issue heats up continued from page 6

of the coal from B.C. and the U.S. Those countries’ counter argument about their need to burn coal for energy is also a compelling one, as more energy means more people in those vastly populated countries can be lifted out of life-threatening poverty. My Global B.C. colleague Jas Johal’s four-part series on coal exports included an interview with Sam Pitroda, an advisor to the Prime Minister of India. He noted the hypocrisy of Western countries, which have been burning coal for more than a century, purporting to limit the ability of India and China to do the same. Then there’s the jobs argument. Premier Christy

Clark’s re-election win was based on the relentless message of the need to create jobs, and it proved to be a popular one. As the debate heats up, the Clark government will come under pressure to state its position (although the federal government has jurisdiction over ports). And it is the kind of issue that could further expose the growing split in the NDP between environmentalists and blue collar job proponents. This province’s economy is largely based on the extraction and export of natural resources, and this has made B.C. ground zero in many campaigns waged by environmentalists against industry. The environmental

movement has never explained how shutting down or greatly reducing B.C.’s natural resource sector won’t have negative consequences for the provincial economy. And there appears to be no realization among those who oppose mining or forestry that those activities help pay for their health care and education. But those inconsistencies haven’t stopped the environmental movement from enjoying past successes. Will it be successful in stopping the construction of oil pipelines in B.C., and the proposed increase of coal shipments through our ports? It’s a classic made-inB.C. kind of fight, and it’s just getting started.

Nurses blast Fraser Health for wheelchair charge plan staff reporter

The Fraser Health Authority is being heavily criticized by the B.C. Nurses’ Union for its plan to charge residential care home residents a fee for wheelchair use. Union president Debra McPherson says it’s “disgraceful” that the health authority will charge seniors in publicly-funded care homes $25 a month for wheelchair use, beginning Sept. 1. “This is a callous, uncaring move by health authorities that are increasingly forgetting their mandate to provide quality care and are instead obsessing continuously about cutting budgets,” McPherson said in a written release. “Seniors in long-term care do best when they can get out of their rooms and socialize with other residents to keep their minds active and maximize their quality of life. Forcing them to pay extra fees for what is an essential service is just unacceptable.” Fraser Health spokesperson Tasleem Juma said the fees will cover a portion of the maintenance, repair and replacement costs of wheelchairs at the public care facilities. For those who cannot afford the monthly $25 fee, there will be an option to apply for exemption, she noted. “If you feel that this is going to cause you a hardship in terms of your finances, then you are more than welcome to apply for the waiver,” she said. Low-income residents who do not have to pay MSP premiums or receive disability benefits are automatically exempt from paying the fee. Besides helping to recoup costs, the fee will bring Fraser Health up to date with the provincial health authority’s mandate that residents can be charged for personal use items at publicly-funded facilities, Juma said. “The objective is obviously not to cause hardship to the residents,” she said. “The objective is to come in line with what

occurs across the board in the province and to bring us also in line with what happens in contracted facilities.”

The Vancouver Coastal Health Authority is also planning to introduce the wheelchair fee as of Sept. 1.

In Burnaby, the Fraser Health Authority owns and operates one care home – Fellburn Care Centre – while another 10

facilities have beds subsidized by the health authority. Residents at these contracted facilities must rent or purchase wheelchairs





from a third-party, Juma noted. The cost to purchase a wheelchair is typically between $1,000 and $3,500, she said.

City woman rewrites the bullies’ script Burnaby woman launches new campaign to turn hurtful words into positive messages Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Burnaby resident and anti-bullying activist Joanne Greenwood has partnered with photographer Susan Goble to launch a photographic campaign, focusing on positive expressions of self-identity. They’re calling it Be Bold, and it involves Greenwood and Goble setting up photo shoots in public spaces and inviting people to have their pictures taken holding a chalkboard with a positive anagram. The idea is to take a negative word, perhaps a name the photographic “It’s about time subject has been we all show some called in the past, and turn it kindness towards into something more positive, each other and although participut these words pants are free to to rest.” write whatever they like. The JOANNE GREENWOOD anti-bullying advocate photos are then posted online. “It’s a purposeful, healing photo,” Greenwood said. “You take the photo, and you can release that negativity you’ve been holding onto forever. It’s just a way to tell society we are not going to be defined any longer by bad words and negativity, and it’s about time we all show some kindness towards each other and put these words to rest.” One particular example that struck Greenwood was a woman with cerebral palsy, who created an anagram – using the words rebel, empathetic, tough, adorable, resilient and determined – from the letters in “retard.” “She’s been called this her whole life,” Greenwood said. “After I wrote that down on the chalkboard, I thought, ‘I can never use this word again.’” Photos collected as part of the Be Bold campaign are then posted in an online gallery at, and participants can also buy copies of the photos. So far, the campaign seems to be generating interest from abroad. Greenwood said she’s been contacted by a documentary filmmaker from France who is interested in filming the project. People from Montreal, Edmonton, Ireland, Spain and the U.S. have also contacted Greenwood about the campaign.

Defusing words:

Burnaby resident Joanne Greenwood became an anti-bullying advocate, after years of harassment at school. Her latest campaign, launched with photographer Susan Goble, turns hurtful words into positive messages of self-identity. The Be Bold campaign was officially launched this past Saturday, but the project is already generating interest from afar.

On Saturday, June 15, Greenwood and Goble hosted the official launch for the Be Bold campaign at the Westin Bayshore in Vancouver. (The hotel donated the space and the food, Greenwood added.) Roughly 100 people came out, and raised approximately $2,000, and Greenwood said the

event went well. “I was very pleased, the turnout was really great, the support was really great,” she said. Greenwood and Goble are planning to hold more photo shoots, and they are hoping for invites to rallies and anti-bullying

events. Last November, Greenwood was featured in the Burnaby NOW for her anti-bullying work, inspired after being bullied in school for years. For more information on the campaign, go to

urnaby’s Mohammed Jawara will be reading from his self-published memoir on Tuesday, July 2 at the Tommy Douglas library branch. Jawara, 26, wrote Tears of the Innocent and the Bloodshed, a short

book about his experiences escaping Liberia as a young boy. As civil war erupted in his home country, Jawara fled to a refugee camp in Sierra Leone, but when Charles Taylor’s infamous soldiers, many of them children, attacked the

camp, Jawara was forced to flee again, this time to Guinea. He was eventually brought to Canada as a refugee and has settled in Burnaby, but the trauma he endured prompted him to write his book, available on Jawara’s story is a pain-

ful one. I was shocked to learn just how young he was when all of this strife and war was erupting around him. He saw things no child should ever see. In his book, he also touches on freedom, Liberian history and the need for peace. The read-

ing starts at 6 p.m. The Tommy Douglas branch is at 7311 Kingsway.

Brentwood Town Centre’s bus loop on Willingdon Avenue will soon be removed to accommodate the planned redevelopment of the mall property. Shape Properties has worked with the city and TransLink to create a “more urban, on-street bus exchange approach in the vicinity” of Brentwood mall and the SkyTrain station, according to a city staff report. This system will replace the bus loop in order to allow for future development at the mall. The bus routes will not change, but all stops and layovers will occur on the streets and as close to the Brentwood Town Centre SkyTrain station as possible. Council approved the changes at its June 17 meeting. For more information on Brentwood Town Centre, go to

Groundbreaking weekend for tall tower MOVERS & SHAKERS Stefania Seccia


he tallest tower east of Burrard Street had a groundbreaking ceremony with special guests this past weekend in Burnaby. On June 15, Altus – the second phase of the future SOLO District development – broke ground with Burnaby-Douglas MP Kennedy Stewart, Burnaby North MLA Richard Lee and Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan in attendance. The Appia Developments project will see the Altus tower stand at 550 feet. It is only a few floors short of being as tall as Vancouver’s luxurious Shangri-La tower. It will also include the city’s first Whole Foods grocery store. “We’re very proud

to be building the tallest tower in Burnaby,” said Jim Bosa, Appia Developments president, in a media release. “The development of Altus is proof that Burnaby is growing into a livable urban community that is not only a great place to live, but an excellent place to do business, as well.” Construction already began on Stratus, which is phase one of the project, on the corner of Willingdon Avenue and Lougheed Highway in North Burnaby. As part of Burnaby’s density program, the city will receive $32 million in community amenities – including a 4,000-squarefoot community space – and $30 million in cash for off-site amenities. “These lessons of sustainable community development will serve as a blueprint to fundamentally recreate Brentwood Town Centre into a model green community that will be another legacy for future generations,” Corrigan said in the

release. SOLO District will bring 1,400 residential units and about 3,000 people to the Brentwood area. “Aside from the height of the building, we’re very excited about the roof-top entertainment space that will be offered to residents of Altus,” said George Wong, Magnum Projects Ltd. principal, in a media release. “The top floor will be home to Club 55, a luxurious indoor-outdoor clubhouse offering residents more than 5,000 square feet of recreational space. Simply put, Altus will have the best views in the Lower Mainland.” The project is also incorporating a green feel with geothermal heat exchange systems, individual gas meters in each condo, a car sharing agreement, electric car charging stations and transit passes for some residents. Altus sales begin on June 22. For more information, visit www.solo Appia has also launched a social media

contest, with four $100 gift cards to Brown’s Social House and Joey Restaurants as prizes. To enter, visit the sales centre at 2131 Willingdon Ave. and snap a photo of the Google map pin, which is

hidden in the sales centre. Then tweet the photo or post it on Instagram with the hashtag #SOLOPin. The contest closes on July 31.

What patients need to know before getting that prescription filled HEALTHWISE

Dr. Davidicus Wong


t is a well-worn ritual. Near the end of your medical visit, the doctor gives you a prescription. Traditionally, it is handwritten, and because calligraphy isn’t a prerequisite for medical school, you may not be able to read it. Most patients are like polite travellers in a foreign country. They may not understand everything that was said, but they’re willing to take a leap of faith and assume they got the gist of it. That may be a big risk if you’re travelling close to the border of a hostile country or about to take a potentially dangerous drug. An important principle in medical ethics is informed consent. In order to make a decision about what treatment – including medication – to take, you need sufficient information. So what should you know before you fill that prescription? There are five crucial areas of information summarized with my acronym, BRAIN: Benefits, Risks, Alternatives, Interactions and the Need for followup. The first question you need to answer is, “What is this drug for?” (i.e. What are the intended benefits?) That’s what your family will ask when you get home. So if you’re not sure, you should ask before you leave the doctor’s office. It’s not unusual for a patient to come out of the hospital or a clinic with

five or more medications but not know what each is supposed to do. Doctors don’t mind clarifying this. We don’t want you to be on any more medications than you need. The second area of information you need to know is the risks of taking this medication. These are the potential side effects. You won’t get every single side effect listed in the pharmacy handout. Only a few lucky winners will hit the jackpot. Like most lottery players you may not get any at all. However, as doctors, we should tell you the common side effects and the serious side effects (even if they are rare). For example, the common side effects of oral steroids, such as prednisone, are immune suppression, insomnia, osteoporosis, stomach irritation and ulcers. A rare but serious side effect is avascular necrosis of the femur that may require a hip replacement. Many drugs cause nausea and changes in bowel movements. Most drugs, including herbal remedies, have the potential for allergic reactions. The third question to ask is, “What are the alternatives?” What are the risks of not treating this condition? Are there other medications – cheaper or more expensive, synthetic or natural? Would lifestyle changes (i.e. a better diet or more exercise) be sufficient? The fourth important area of information you need is the potential for interactions with food or other drugs. Grapefruit juice interacts with many medications. It can raise the blood levels of many cholesterol-lowering drugs and increase the risk for side effects. The blood thinner warfarin has to be carefully dosed in order

to be effective in preventing blood clots without increasing the risk of bleeding. Many medications interact with warfarin, including nonprescription acetaminophen (Tylenol) and vitamin K (present in many foods, including green leafy vegetables). Finally, the fifth area of information you require is the need to follow up. If this is a short-term prescription – such as a course of antibiotics for an ear infection – should you return to the doctor if you’re not better? How long should you wait? If the prescription is for a chronic condition, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, how often should you be monitored? When should you be rechecked? Autonomy is a cornerstone of Western medical ethics, but to make

informed decisions about your health, you need this important information. If


you’re not sure, ask these questions and pick your doctor’s brain.

Movers: Tips on getting social continued from page 15

Social media conference

A group of Simon Fraser University students are teaching local businesses how to interact via social media. Co-founders Lesley Yuen and Saline Siu are looking to empower local businesses with the launch of the OMG Social Media Conference on Aug. 15. “There’s a gap and small businesses are suffering,” Yuen said in a media release. “They want to sell to millenials, but they don’t know how to reach them. For a crowd struggling to get any online engagements, walking them through the process of creating a social media marketing strategy is more useful.” HootSuite, SFU Beedie School of Business and Telus are sponsoring the event, which will feature three speaker sessions, three keynote presentations and 10 social media experts. “As the online media generation, we are extremely familiar with social media – a luxury that we often take for granted,” Siu said. “But it is crucial in the success of small business owners and we want to help bridge the gap between these generations.” The conference is Thursday, Aug. 15 from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at SFU Segal, 500 Granville St. in Vancouver. For more information, visit www.omgsocialmedia. org.

Plans for Brentwood mall

What will the future of Brentwood Town Centre look like? A Shape Properties public info session at the mall aims to answer that. On June 26, Shape will host a public information meeting to showcase what

the first phase of the redevelopment encompasses. Shape acquired Brentwood mall in 2010, and has been working on redevelopment and rezoning plans ever since. “The first phase of development envisions the creation of a new dynamic outdoor commercial centre, public plaza, and residential development, integrated with the Brentwood SkyTrain Station and adjacent bus service,” a Brentwood Town Centre online post states. “All parking is proposed to be underground within the first phase, with above ground public spaces being pedestrian oriented and fully accessible.” Shape is asking the public to provide comment on the proposed redevelopment at the open house in the food court at Brentwood mall from 4 to 7 p.m. For more information or to send comments, email

No more Safeway

Burnaby’s four Safeways will be no more. The company was bought out by Sobeys and will join Thrifty Foods and IGA under the same owner. Safeway was acquired for about $5.8 million last week, including all the grocery stores under the Safeway banner in Western Canada, 10 liquor stores and 12 manufacturing facilities, among others. “This is a significant and historic event for Sobeys, which has been proudly serving Canadian food shoppers for 106 years,” said Paul Sobey, president and CEO of Empire Company Ltd., in a media release. The Safeway locations will now be under the Sobeys name. The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Empire.

Burnaby’s ABC Recycling honoured for green efforts Stefania Seccia staff reporter

ABC Recycling has been around for 101 years, but the company only recently received its first environmental award. The Burnaby-based company was awarded the Private Sector Achievement Award by the Recycling Council of B.C. ABC Recycling is a family enterprise and recovers, processes and recycles scrap metal. It has eight locations across B.C. and Alberta with more than 200 employees, with customers in Western Canada and around the world. “It’s very exciting,” Karen Bichin, ABC’s manager of community relations, told the NOW. “We’re really proud of receiving this award, and I think it’s just a great testament of our commitment to environmental sustainability and doing business the right away. It’s a big part of our philosophy.” ABC Recycling diverts up to 20,000 tons per month of ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal from municipal landfills, employs a full-time environment officer, and it recycles different kinds of scrap metals from households, scrap automobiles, industrial construction and demolition sites, which it then sells worldwide.

Bichin, whose great-grandfather and grandfather founded the company, said ABC partners with the Kidney Foundation of Canada, as well. Bichin’s company is part of the kidney car program and metal program. “People have the opportunity to donate their vehicle that needs to be scrapped or recycled, and they receive a tax receipt for $300,” Bichin explained. The vehicle is then towed, recycled and the money from selling its scrap metal is donated to the foundation. “It’s a creative way of implementing and maintaining sustainable practices,” Bichin said. “(It’s) a way we’re able to give back to the community.” ABC has also taken the Burnaby Board of Trade’s Pledge for a Sustainable Community program. “We were one of the first companies to sign on,” she said. “We also try to come up with new initiatives to maintain and further our sustainable business practices.” The company also received the Employee Campaign Loyalty Award from Scotiabank and the United Way in 2011 and was recognized as Business of the Year at the Burnaby Business Excellence Awards in 2008.

Potential trouble from mysterious car quakes CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi

Dear Tom and Ray: About three weeks ago, I was pulling into a parking space, and just before stopping, I heard and felt what appeared to be a large impact. There was no one around and nothing to hit. I walked around the car and looked under it, but I could see no problems. Today, I was pulling into a parking space and heard and felt what appeared to be an impact from another car. There were no cars around,

nor objects that I could have hit. I did a walk around, but I could find nothing wrong. Both times, my dogs were in the car and both times, they became agitated. I have tried to reproduce the effect but could not. If it had happened once, I could ignore it, but twice suggests that it will happen again. The next time, it could be at a higher speed. The first time, I was within a few feet from stopping, and I had just turned to the left. The second time, I was a few feet from stopping, and I was turning to the right. The only thing the two incidents had in common was that I was nearly stopped. My limited knowledge of cars leaves me puzzled. Can you help? – Bob RAY: Our limited know-

ledge of cars often leaves TOM: Whether the cusus puzzled, too, Bob. tomer is up to date on his TOM: We should start by liability insurance presaying that we miums. don’t know RAY: Right. “… shaking and Because shakwhat’s wrong with your car. ing and quakquaking from We’ll give ing from the the front end can front end can you some mean that an ideas, but this mean that is something important piece an important that a mechpiece of your of your front sus- front suspenanic is going to have to find pension or steer- sion or steerfor you using ing assembly ing assembly is his eyes, ears, is worn out, hands and worn out, which which means tuchus. a wheel could means a wheel RAY: fall off. could fall off.” Whenever You didn’t there are tell us the RAY MAGLIOZZI strange noises age of your columnist or, more car, Bob. But importantly, obviously, as shaking coming from the a car gets older, chances front end, there’s one thing of this sort of catastrophic we always check first … failure go up.

TOM: So, ask a mechanic you trust to take a thorough look at the front end. Make sure your ball joints, wheel bearings and control arms, etc., are all in good shape and still firmly attached to the car. RAY: If they are, my first guess would be that you have a front axle that’s binding up. That tends to happen when you make the sharpest turns – like when parking. TOM: The next thing I’d look at would be your motor mounts. If you have a broken motor mount or two, your engine and transmission literally can jump around inside the engine compartment. And under certain circumstances, it could create jolting sensations as it jumps into or out of

position. RAY: You also could have a brake that’s sticking. You’re obviously using the brakes when you park, and if one of the calipers gets stuck, it could jolt the car when it gets unstuck. TOM: The final thing to suspect would be the transmission. It could be something as simple as a rough downshift into first gear that you’re feeling. But it would have to be awfully rough to do what you describe, and I can’t explain why it would happen only when you’re parking. RAY: So those are the things to start with, Bob. Get the potentially deadly stuff checked out first, and then move on to the merely obscenely expensive stuff. Good luck!

Best blooms for summer GREEN SCENE Anne Marrison


ow that June has arrived, spectacular flowers are unfolding – huge blooms, intense colours and a presence that can be fondly remembered long after they fade. Oriental poppies are one of the plants that fill this niche. An eruption of their fiery scarlet blooms, often 20 centimetres wide, is visible blocks away. Gentler whites and pale pinks are available as well as purple-reds like Patty’s plum. Oriental poppies are hardy survivors in any sunny, well-drained place. Their thick taproots guarantee drought-resistance, and they can live with little fertilizer. After flowering, they vanish into dormancy, leaving a bare patch. But when fall rains begin, fresh leaves sprout and remain all winter. Herbaceous peonies also love sun and good drainage and are greedy feeders with an appetite for compost, bonemeal, mushroom manure or other well-rotted manure. Their flowers are at least 20 cm across, and some are very fragrant. One of the most fragrant herbaceous peonies is the heritage white, red-speckled Festiva maxima. These peonies develop deep red foliage in fall then die down for the winter. Their clusters slowly expand while they survive and flower for many decades. It’s safer not to mulch the roots. Thick mulch prevents flowering. They can be divided in fall, but flowers may be smaller for a couple of years after dividing.

Tree peonies like similar conditions to herbaceous peonies but are shrubs which retain their woody framework and grow quite large. They can handle part shade. Their flowers are huge, sometimes 60 cm across. Usually tree peonies are grafted, and it’s important to remove any stems emerging from the base and producing small, single peony flowers. Rhododendrons also produce huge flower clusters and are easy to grow in our climate, not least because these woodland shrubs like a sun-shade mix and an airy, welldrained moisture-retaining soil. Bark mulch is a good aerator if you mix it into the planting hole. The award-winning rhododendron Lem’s cameo sometimes produces up to 20 pinkish yellow flowers in its clusters. Another interesting rhododendron is Rhododendron augustinii which has lavender blue flowers. All the dwarf Rhododendron yakushianums have pink or white flower clusters which are large in relation to their size. These fit nicely into small space. When other flowers fade, some roses carry colour and fragrance until the fall. The David Austin series produces large, double fragrant blooms for long periods, longer if reliably deadheaded. One, the pink two-metre shrub Heritage is said to be almost thornless. Some rugosa roses have very large blooms and repeat-flower. The white Blanc Double de Coubert is a repeat-flowerer. So is the heritage Hansa.’ Rugosas are thorny and tend to sucker but are very fragrant. Most rugosas are superbly disease resistant. Like other roses, they love rich feeding and water. Landscape roses are also extremely diseaseresistant.

Spring season: Richard Culleton, in white, helped lead the Burnaby Selects to a 2-1 victory over the North Van FC Surge and win the Adanac under-13 spring soccer league title on Saturday.


Selects win spring soccer Tom Berridge

sports editor

The Burnaby Selects wrapped up the under13 Adanac spring soccer league title with a 21 victory over the North Vancouver FC Surge on Saturday. Central midfielder Justin Petkovic scored both Burnaby goals, including the game-winner in the late stages off a cross from Massud Habibullah. Aidan LaBreche assisted on Petkovic’s opening first-half goal. With five minutes left to

play, Burnaby goalie Zach Chien made a key play, coming out to challenge a one-on-one break that saw the ensuing shot on goal just graze the post. Richard Culleton also had a strong game for the Selects, while Michael Simone was the team’s top defender. The climatic win came after a slow 0-2 start to the season. Since then, the Selects closed out the u13 schedule, rattling off eight straight wins, while outscoring their combined opposition 25-9. “We turned it around.

We had to get the guys in better fitness and they just fell into play,” said firstyear coach Scott Stefanek, who played most of his minor soccer in the Selects soccer program.” The team posted its first shutout, a recent 3-0 win over a Delta Metro league team three weeks ago. The shutout was shared by Chien and Matt Parisotto. “It was a real team effort. Our best game of the season. We were very, very sound and at the end of the day, we put the ball away,” Stefanek added. The season result was

also a triumph for the coaching staff. “I know we can do such great things with this team,” said Stefanek, who, along with co-coaches Darren Nelless and Matteo Manfredi, hand-picked a total of 20 players from Burnaby organizations – two goalies and 18 midfielder/forwards – including the youngest member, nine-year-old Kamron Habibullah.

There was no accounting for the Burnaby Lakers dramatic change in play last week. Buoyed by back-to-back wins over Langley and Victoria a week earlier, Burnaby looked every inch a contender despite a narrow 5-4 loss to the New Westminster Salmonbellies at Queen’s Park Arena on June 13. But a day later at home against a lesser opponent, the Lakers proved unworthy of their debut into the national senior A rankings, losing 16-11 to the lastplace Nanaimo Timbermen at home last Friday. That all changed Sunday, when Burnaby marched into Maple Ridge and came away with a well-deserved 11-7 result. “It’s hard to explain,” said Burnaby head coach Rory McDade following the team’s fifth game and third victory in 12 days. “We played real good in New West and real good in Maple Ridge. … But we’re still looking for the consistency.” Burnaby’s defence kept runaway goal-scoing leader Curtis Dickson off the scoresheet for the first time this season. Western Lacrosse Association’s player of the

week Scott Jones found his groove again, leading all scorers with three goals and five assists in the win. Jones scored his first off the opening faceoff and Burnaby never trailed in the contest, building up a 5-1 first-period lead. The victory moved the Lakers back into a fourth-place tie with New Westminster. Dane Stevens, who is on a nine-game goal scoring streak, moved up to second place in WLA scoring, tallying his second consecutive hat trick with a fivepoint effort for the Lakers. Dan Lewis also earned a game star backstopping the win with 38 stops. Jason Jones, who was picked up in a trade with Coquitlam that sent Scott Tinning and fifth-round draft pick Brock Whitely to the A’s, added a goal and three helpers. Chase Williams and Casey Jackson also had multi-goal games. But at home, where the Lakers are 1-3, Burnaby couldn’t cut it before its fans at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre. Jackson opened the scoring on a screened shot from the left side, but the energy from the game before was noticeably absent in the overall team’s play. Lacrosse Page 30

North Burnaby pro driver in Mid-Ohio state of mind Tom Berridge

sports editor

Mid-Ohio has been good to sports car driver Michael Valiante. The Burnaby professional race car driver nearly duplicated his history-making feat at the MidOhio road course, finishing second in two separate race classes at the Diamond Cellar Classic in Lexington, Ohio last weekend.

Valiante, dubbed the supersub in Grand American Rolex sports car racing, helped the fledgling 8Star Motorsports racing team to its first-ever podium in the Rolex sports car series, taking the checkered flag in second place in the team’s Daytona Prototype Corvette. Earlier, Valiante also drove the Heart of America Racing Team’s Honda Civic Si to a runner-up finish in the Continental Tire

street tuner class. Last year, Valiante made Grand Am series history, winning a Daytona Prototype and sports car challenge street tuner class race on the same day. “I told my wife, ‘We have to move there,’” said Valiante after returning home Monday. “It was a good weekend. In the feature race, Valiante took over behind the wheel from driver and co-owner Enzo

Potolicchio, who qualified the No. 3 Corvette in 11th place, with the car in ninth spot on the 11th circuit of the 110-lap race. Valiante quickly reeled in three cars in the next 12 laps and then moved up into fifth spot, setting what was the quickest lap of the race in 1:17.631 before a caution flag allowed him to pit. Valiante was able to restart in first, a position he held for the next 34 laps before being forced

to make a stop for fuel and tires. He regained the track in third spot, and took second when the No. 90 car of Ricky Taylor spun out. “I led a large portion of the middle of the race, but we had an issue in the pit. If I had the same pitstop as the second-place car, we would have won the race,” Valiante said. Racing Page 31

BURNABY SPORTS BRIEFS Burnaby goalie Kimberly Newell was named the rookie of the year for the Princeton University women’s hockey team. The true freshman jumped into the starting role, finishing her first season in NCAA Division I with a 0.915 save percentage, a 2.90 goals against average and a record of 10-14-2. She was also

named an East Coast conference player of the week in February. Last week, Newell was the youngest player invited to Hockey Canada’s under-22 national goaltenders camp in Calgary.

Team inducted

Columbus FC, one of B.C.’s and Canada’s most successful soccer clubs, was recently inducted into

the Canadian Soccer Hall of Fame. Founded in 1953, Columbus celebrated its 60th season this year and was recognized as an organization of distinction at the ceremony held in Toronto. “My 35 years with Columbus have been a magical experience,” said former player Joe Cuzzetto.

Back on the ice: Junior hockey hopefuls show their best at the Grandview Steelers junior B hockey camp held at the Burnaby Winter Club this past weekend.

B’s win ninth against Richmond A six-goal third period helped the Burnaby Lakers to a 13-8 victory over the Richmond Roadrunners in West Coast Junior Lacrosse League play last Saturday. Kevan Galte led all junior B Lakers with a 10-point effort, including a hat trick, while Scott Petursson celebrated a birthday and a new stick, potting five goals and helping out on three others. Aaron Roberts also chipped in with six assists. Burnaby scored early at the start of both the first and second periods, including a

highlight shorthanded marker by Evan MacDonald that gave the home team a 3-2 lead after the opening 20 minutes. But in each case, Richmond worked its way back into the game. Cody Gilliam, who leads all starting goaltenders with a 0.870 save percentage and has a 6.182 goals against average, was sharp again in goal, stopping 36 shots for the win. The Lakers take on the first-place Coquitlam Adanacs at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Saturday at 8 p.m.

Nanaimo finally pulled away in the second period, scoring four times in a five-minute span and opening up a fourgoal lead that it built on through to the end of the game. Both starter Joe Bell and Lewis, who was a game star with 44 stops against New West the day before, couldn’t match the play of Zach Boychuk, who had 43 stops at the other end of the arena. “I don’t know, we just seemed to come out real slow and then just couldn’t find it,” said Burnaby runner Jackson Decker. Stevens led the Lakers on the scoresheet with three goals and four helpers. Jackson also had a solid night with two goals in a five-point offering. Colton Clark and Shaun Dhaliwal both pumped in a pair of goals from the right side. But despite some offensive upside, the Lakers lack of defence never gave the impression that a win was ever in

the cards. “We were getting looks and working hard at times,” Decker said. “We’re talented, but we’re not the most talented team. We have to bear down.” That was a quality the Lakers showed more of for most of the game against New Westminster. While Burnaby fell behind 3-1 after 20 minutes, the Lakers had the better of the play in the remaing two periods and, but for the play of Salmonbellie keeper and first star Neil Tyacke, would likely have won that game. Burnaby moved the ball well against the aggressive New West press, but had a hard time beating Tyacke, who put in his best performance of the season, kicking out 49 shots for his fourth win. In the second period against the ’Bellies, Burnaby outshot the home team 26-11, but scored just once on Justin Salt’s transition breakaway goal. Burnaby plays host to the Langley Thunder at the Copeland centre on Friday. Game time is 7:45 p.m.

Runner named top scholar athlete Simon Fraser University track and field athlete Helen Crofts was voted the 2012/13 Great Northwest Athletic Conference female scholarathlete of the year. Crofts will now be candidate for the 2013 Conference Commissioners scholar athlete of the year award, which will be selected this summer. The award comes a week after Crofts was named the conference co-female athlete of the year. Crofts had an impressive career not only on the track, but also in the

classroom, compiling a near-perfect 4.14 grade point average. A biological science major with a concentration in cells, molecules and physiology, Crofts compiled the highest grade point average among Clan athletes this year, earning the Bill DeVries Award for excellence in academics and athletics. Crofts accomplished her classroom standing while winning two national titles and four All-American awards at the NCAA indoor and outdoor national championships.

In the indoor meet in March in Birmingham, Alabama, Crofts won the 800-metre in a meet-record time of 2:05.96. Crofts completed the sweep of NCAA 800m titles in the outdoor meet in May at Pueblo, Colorada, finishing first in a time of 2:08.18. A week prior to the nationals, Crofts was ninth at the U.S.A. high performance distance classic in a conference record time of 2:02.10 – the third-fastest collegiate time this season.

Nevertheless, the North Burnaby product closed the gap on eventual race winner Christian Fittipaldi to 1.427 seconds at the checkered flag. The podium was the first in six starts for the new 8Star Motorspots team, which just began operations in November of 2012. “We hired the right guy, Valiante, for the team,” said Potolicchio in an online team press release. “We knew his quality, and the engineer loves him. The feedback Valiante gives is excellent, so we knew he was going to do well here.”

In the street tuner race, Chad Gilsinger qualified the Honda Civic in the second row, and Valiante took over, running the fastest lap in the 81-lap race in a time of 1:35.288 en route to second place on the 2.258-mile, 13-turn Mid-Ohio road course. Valiante will be racing in the same two classes at Watkins Glen. “It’s a challenge, but even in my go-kart days I drove in more than one class,” he added.

In Memoriam

March 19, 1949 - June 14, 2013

passed away peacefully in White Rock on May 26th, 2013. It was only one month after her 91st birthday. Betty was born on April 24th, 1922 to George and Mary Nethercote, in Saskatoon, Sask. She was predeceased by her husband August and older sisters Gladys and Constance. Betty Schiller and her beloved husband settled and lived in New Westminster for over forty years. She will be remembered as being very hospitable and generous. These traits followed through in her culinary talents. She made cakes, candies, breads and a variety of delicious eats and treats. One year at the Pacific National Exhibition, she won 6 first places and 1 second place award out of seven candy entries. Betty remained active and spent much of her remaining years in White Rock. Betty enjoyed needlework and swam three times a week up to late eighties. Her passing leaves behind her son Dan, daughter Mary, 3 granddaughters, 2 great grandsons and 2 great granddaughters. Her youngest great granddaughter was born the day before she left us. She also loved cats and dogs. To the long list of those that will miss her, the names of pets Roscoe, Ember and Lady can be added. The Memorial Service will be on June 20th, 2013 at 11:00 am. at St. Mary the Virgin Angelican Church 121 Columbia Street E, New Westminster. A special thanks to Dr. John O’Brien, Andrea, Barbara, Graham, Vernonica and others for their loving care of Betty. Thanks to Eva and Rose for their friendship to our mother.

Losing you so suddenly Was a crying shame It threw our lives in turmoil We would never be the same. There was nothing we could do There was nothing we could say A piece of our hearts went with you The day you went away. I can’t believe someone’s cowardly act Could cause us so much strife To blatantly hide away After taking a child’s life. Time helps us to heal But many scars still remain They’ll be with us forever Until we meet again. Your sisters have flourished With the help of Mom and Dad And Grama and Grampa are always there When they’re feeling sad. We will always remember you Megan And the great impression that you made Our memories are still clear And our love will never fade. Love forever Auntie Grace
