Family pleads: ‘come foward’ Cayley Dobie staff reporter
Janet Atkinson-Grosjan held back tears as she described her late brother, the avid cyclist and musician, father and grandfather, during a press conference on Friday. The RCMP hope the family’s pleas will encourage witnesses to step forward with information regarding the hit and run death of 72-year-old Burnaby resident Ed Simpkins. As reported previously by the Burnaby NOW, Simpkins was riding his bicycle westbound on 13th Avenue on June 30, when he crossed over a median at Wright Street and was struck by an oncoming vehicle. Burnaby RCMP have been unable to locate the suspect and vehicle involved in the crash and are hoping Simpkins’ family’s pleas will encourage the suspect to step forward. “We always thought he was indestructible. … He would have been 73 at the end of this month, but he was fitter than most people half his age. He was a musician, he was a poet, an artist, an athlete, and life-long cyclist. He was also a dad, a granddad, my brother, and a friend to so many people. He had a real gift for words and writing dreadful jokes, and he will be missed. We certainly weren’t ready to lose him,” Atkinson-Grosjan said. “We do understand that the driver must Simpkins Page 5

City pools offer a splashing good time Cayley Dobie staff reporter
With summer heating up, parents scrambling to plan activities for the kids need look no further than the local outdoor pools. The Central Park outdoor pool is the city’s largest, at 50 metres, while the other three, McPherson, Kensington and Robert Burnaby are all 25-metre pools and more family oriented, said Misty Troisi, centre supervisor for Eileen Dailly indoor pool and the outdoor pools. Troisi said the pools have already had a

good turnout since they opened on June 3, especially the Central Park pool. “We opened Central Park in mid-May for a lap swim Monday through Friday and it was very successful,” she added. This was the first year the Central Park pool was opened prior to June and, because of its success, Troisi expects the city will continue this in years to come. The outdoor pools are also accepting the Burnaby B Active Pass, something Troisi said helps bring more people to the pools. Troisi said all pool schedules are weather dependent and that people should check

the city website often for up-to-date closure information. “We try to open as much as possible,” she said. However, poor weather can sometimes shut down the outdoor pools, she added. Troisi said she makes the closure decisions by 10 a.m. and will sometimes choose to open the pools later in the day if the weather is forecasted to change. As of the end of June, the closure date for the pools will most likely remain Sept. 1, compared to past years, when the pools have been kept open until the middle of the

The cool taste of Hawaii comes to Burnaby Cayley Dobie staff reporter
John Lennon once sang, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans,” and the lyrics couldn’t be truer for Burnaby couple Sandy and Jasen Hamilton. The two first met back in high school in Calgary. They dated for a while and then went their separate ways after graduation. Years later, they both found themselves living in the Lower Mainland. The couple reconnected in Burnaby, fell in love – again – and married. Like many newlyweds, Sandy and Jasen spent their honeymoon lounging on the beaches of Maui, Hawaii. They were instantly smitten with the tropical paradise and everything that came with it, including shave ice, a tasty local treat that mixes shaved ice with syrup flavours. At the time, they were both working for a sound company in the film industry. They enjoyed working together and soon began putting together an idea for a fun side business that would allow them to continue to work in each other’s company. “We thought, ‘Hey, why don’t we make shave ice?’ because there’s nothing Hawaiian here … so we started out a couple of years ago working out of a tent,” Sandy said. Kani-Kei Shave Ice began three years ago, with Sandy and Jasen serving the frozen Hawaiian treat from a tent they would set up around the city and at private events. Last year, the couple decided that setting up and taking down their station was too much work, so they converted the truck they were using to carry their equipment into a food truck, the Kani-Kei Shave Ice truck. It’s easy to see why the couple needs a truck to carry around all their equipment. Sandy and Jasen make their own ice blocks using bottled water, which makes for a more consistent flavour, they said. They also make their own syrup just like the Hawaiians do, using cane sugar they buy from a distributor in the Lower Mainland. “We’re able to get our hands on some premium cane sugar, which is nice,” Jasen added. “Our flavours are all sort of authentic flavours that you would get in Hawaii; the tiger’s blood, the blue Hawaiian, all that good stuff.” But these “shavers” don’t stop there. In an attempt to be as authentic as they can, Sandy and Jasen offer customers an option to add vanilla ice cream and/or gummy bears to their shave ice at no extra cost. “You get three layers of texture; you get the soft, fluffy ice, and then you get

the creamy, smooth vanilla ice cream mixing with your flavour, and then, at the very bottom, you have these little frozen, gummy treats, that are a little hard, but still sweet,” Jasen said. And they’re open to combining flavours, up to a maximum of three. The only thing the owners of Kani-Kei Shave Ice ask is not to come by looking for a sno-cone, but if you do, they’ll be more than happy to explain the difference. “For us, it’s a huge education thing,” she said. “The difference is the block. … Our machine has a razor on the bottom, and when we turn it on, it shaves (the block of ice) just like snow.” This technique helps hold in the flavours, instead of them pooling at the bottom of the cup, like a sno-cone or slushie, she said. “When we pour the syrup on (the ice), the syrup sticks right to it, just like fresh fallen snow. Unlike a sno-cone, which is just little balls of ice,” she added. Sandy and Jasen’s Kani-Kei Shave Ice truck celebrated its inaugural year on
the streets last summer and it’s back for another season this summer. Already, Sandy and Jasen have been out and about serving up fresh, homemade shave ice at various locations and events around the city, including Hats Off Day in The Heights, which was a huge success. “We had to turn people away because we had to pack up and close down,” Jasen said. Despite the popularity of the Kani-Kei Shave Ice truck, the couple has run into some challenges with trying to operate the food truck in Burnaby. Most of the challenges are caused by the city’s business licence bylaw from the ’50s, which is still referred to as a peddlers’ bylaw. Some of the restrictions, including the limited time a mobile business can operate at one location, have forced Sandy and Jasen to get creative with their service. When they aren’t working at private events, the couple drives around the city making numerous stops throughout the

day to serve customers. They use social media, including Twitter to get the word out on their locations each day. And luckily, at Hats Off Day, the Royal Bank branch at Hastings Street and Rosser Avenue was kind enough to let Kani-Kei set up its truck on the bank’s property so it could serve customers without having to leave right away. But no matter the challenges, Sandy and Jasen love Burnaby and have no intention of leaving the city for other food truck friendly areas, especially with a “little shaver” on the way. “We found out we were pregnant in January of this year,” Sandy said. The pregnancy hasn’t slowed either of them down and they’ll once again operate until October, just like past years, they said.

have panicked. Speaking for myself, I’m past the anger, I understand what (they) must have gone through when this happened and I understand the need to just get away from things, but it’s been a few days now and you must be feeling awful with the guilt. So please, it’s really time to say ‘enough’ and come forward. We need you to come forward so we can let Ed go in a dignified manner.” According to Staff Sgt. Major John Buis, police have obtained surveillance footage from a nearby security camera that shows the suspect vehicle as well as a second witness vehicle. “It is believed another driver came across the scene just as (the accident) occurred, or seconds afterwards, and then reversed and left the area westbound along 13th Avenue,” he said. Buis said it’s unknown whether the second driver saw Simpkins or if they only saw the car stopped and decided to turn around rather than attempt to go around. At this point, however, he is also urging the second driver to contact the Burnaby
RCMP. “We believe this driver is critically important as a witness to our investigation,” he said. “We urgently wish to speak with that person about what he or she may have seen that evening.” The suspect vehicle is described as a late model, two-door coupe, either black or blue in colour, and it is believed the driver is a woman, Buis said. “It appears to be very similar to an Acura RSX, Honda Civic or similar model of car,” he said. While it was reported earlier that the suspect vehicle had damage to the passenger side door, Buis said that this can no longer be confirmed and that the fatal injuries Simpkins sustained – which aren’t being released at this time – suggest there could be no damage at all. “We recognize that the situation could be overwhelming for anyone involved in such an incident and we encourage the driver who struck Ed Simpkins to come forward,” Buis added. Anyone with information is urged to contact Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922. firstname.lastname@example.org

vigilant, but as kids gain independence, their families tend to give them more leeway. Independence is a good thing, and parents shouldn’t be tethered to their children at all times for fear of what terrible things might happen. Part of allowing children to be more independent includes teaching them how to be safe on their own. Learning important safety techniques – such as wearing properly fitting personal flotation devices on boats,
being aware of water conditions, avoiding alcohol when you plan to swim and never diving into unfamiliar water – can save lives. And being safe and aware of possible dangers doesn’t have to impede summertime fun – in fact, it will likely prolong it by preventing tragedies.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Protect natural environment Dear Editor:
Re: Bikes bad for nature?, Burnaby NOW, July 5. In 1970, while preparing walking trails throughout Burnaby, I met with a group of motorcyclists (mud bikers) on Burnaby Mountain. After agreeing that bike trails down the slopes of Burnaby Mountain would be very damaging with erosion, we went so far as visiting a Kamloops area called Bachelor Hills. We saw the devastation the bike trails caused there (and with very little rainfall). The damage was irreparable, so the bikers moved farther along the slopes repeating their carnage of this fragile soil layer.

The City of Kamloops finally stopped random bike hill climbing and instead set aside only controlled areas. When the City of Burnaby trails were planned, it was recommended that the paths be designed so as not to damage stream banks, and, by design, selected areas were incorporated so users could view the stream. This was spelled out in a report in 1972 by the Burnaby parks and recreation commission of the day, also recommending the protection of remaining streams and open up culverted streams, where possible and further allow creeks and streams to maintain their natural coarse.

entering these streams. In the 1990s, about 1,000 acres of Burnaby Mountain was returned to Burnaby. (In 1930, this area was set aside as parkland). This time the provincial government set aside the area as a conservation area due to the lobbying and much hard work of the Burnaby Mountain Preservation Society. The society’s mandate was to maintain this area in public hands and promote the protection of the natural streams and forests. I hope the City of Burnaby and the public act as stewards to protect the natural integrity of this special part of Burnaby, and thank you Mr. Alan James for keeping up the good work.

Wheelchair fee a burden Dear Editor:
It’s all very well for the Fraser Health Authority to say that seniors who can demonstrate financial hardship can have the $25 wheelchair fee waived. However, past practice shows this will not be easy, nor simple. In 2010, when the Ministry of Health and its health authorities raised residential care rates, seniors heard the same song. However, finding out who to contact about the hardship review process was extremely difficult. In some health authori-
ties such a contact was nonexistent. And when the process was finally set in motion, it was arduous, confusing and required a great deal of “proof” of hardship. There are already many items and services that are not included in basic residential care rates. The list is lengthy and varies from facility to facility. The wheelchair fee is just another burden on seniors and it should be stopped before it starts. Bonnie Pearson, secretary/business manager Hospital Employees’ Union
Tax not province’s fault Dear Editor:
Re: ‘Crushing’ tax hike of 24 per cent, Burnaby NOW, July 3. Mayor Derek Corrigan’s response that Mr. Williams should direct his concerns regarding his 24 per cent property tax hike to the province is unacceptable. This is a city tax, assessed by the city and paid to the city. I don’t believe the city can’t do anything to address this obviously unfair result. The city determines what share of property taxes are accessed on commercial property and what share on residential property. If Mr. Williams’ experience is representative of the situation facing commercial property owners then an adjustment needs to be made so that the share of property taxes paid by commercial owners is reduced. Garth Evans, Burnaby
Fear factor: Older voters continued from page 6
The so-called fear factor didn’t seem to exist to the same degree among young people, who tend to support the NDP by greater numbers than older voters. But that fact became immaterial on election day, as those young voters simply stayed home rather than vote. Reid, who has a long track record of accurate election polling, says he will change his firm’s polling methodology in the wake of the problems exposed by the recent election. Young people will have to be “weighted” in the polling sample that is proportional to actual voters rather than the general population. Apparently, this is a problem that is unique to B.C. Other jurisdictions don’t seem to have the same level of disinterest
in young people when it comes to voting. As a political journalist, I’ve relied on Reid’s polls since the mid-’80s for providing both an accurate snapshot of public opinion and a context on which to base political analysis. With the notable exception of the May 14th election, he’s always been right. When he and others were proven to be so wrong on election night, the media also wore the fallout from the error. In his analysis, Reid says he considered pulling out of polling altogether, which would have significant implications for political journalism. However, Reid has concluded that since corporations, special interest groups and political parties are still very much involved in polling (in the last U.S. election more than $100 million was
spent on private polling by the various parties), it is important that non-partisan companies such as his continue their own polling. “A strong democracy needs accurate and independent public opinion research to help balance the discipline of power and add context to public debates,” Reid writes. People may not like public opinion polling (particularly when their findings clash with their own views), but it is an important part of our democratic process. It’s good to know that pollsters like Reid are going to make changes to ensure their findings are more accurate in the future. Now, if we can just get those young people to actually get out and vote.

World in Burnaby:

Contributed photo/ burnaby now
City welcomes the world If you happen across a massive, inflatable globe floating around town, chances are you’ve come across the Burnaby Intercultural Planning Table’s latest campaign to make the city more welcoming for refugees and immigrants. The planning table is launching the World in Burnaby, and the name is aptly fitting given the variety of countries local residents hail from. “We want to remind Burnaby residents of the role they play in making this community a welcoming place for people to live, work and play,” said Jody Johnson, the table’s project coordinator. “With the most recent statistics showing there are people from more than 150 different countries living in Burnaby, we like to think that the world truly is represented in Burnaby – that’s why we’re using the globe as our
official symbol for this campaign.” The planning table is a consortium of various non-profits and government agencies who meet regularly to coordinate and share ideas on helping immigrants and refugees settling in Burnaby. People can have their picture taken with the inflatable globe and share the image on social media. The globe will be at the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra concert in Deer Lake Park on July 14, the Edmonds City Fair on July 21, and the B.C. Day celebrations at Burnaby Village Museum on Aug. 5. People can also take a pledge on the campaign’s website to do one thing to welcome immigrants or refugees in Burnaby.

Hydro costs anger COPE Stefania Seccia staff reporter
When unexpected cost overruns were made public last week about the Northwest Transmission Line, one local union was quick to say it was due to the government’s “mismanagement” of B.C. Hydro. The Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union Local 378 said the cost overruns are due to the government under-collecting costs from mining corporations and other major users. The union represents about 1,850 B.C. Hydro workers. “This government has now gone more than a decade without taking the actions necessary to deal with real cost drivers and address debt at B.C. Hydro,” said union president David Black in a media release. The union said it warned the utilities commission the rates were far too low for users when the project cost was at $561 million. “At that time, the union estimated the subsidy to be worth about $150 million to mining companies and other corporate interests,” the release states. “The price tag has since ballooned to $700 million but the contribution asked of mining corporations and other major users has stayed the same.” The union also predicts
B.C. Hydro ratepayers should prepare for a substantial “rate shock” within the year. “They keep doubling down on their mistakes,” Black said about the government. “The Northwest Transmission Line cost is only one in a long list of bad decisions. You can count backwards from last year’s stunning choice to push off a smaller rate increase until after the election, to the debt hidden in deferral accounts, and to subsidizing expensive and damaging private power projects.” The union has asked to meet with B.C. Minister of Energy and Mines Bill Bennett to discuss this issue. In an interview with the NOW, Bennett said it’s easy for unions to attack corporations – as “that’s what they like to do.” “They forget where their jobs come from,” he said in a phone interview. “If corporations don’t make the decision to invest (and) build projects then all of a sudden members don’t have a job.” Over the next 20 to 30 years, the companies who use the power line will be the ones who pay for it, according to the minister. “Frankly, we’ve very unhappy about it,” he said. “We’ll take (B.C. Hydro) to task to ensure it doesn’t happen again.” Bennett said the line is
Grilled Mahi-Mahi Bursting with Flavour
going to access 25 to 30 per cent of the province that currently does not have electricity, but relies on “dirty diesel fuel.” “Most of the major mining discoveries are in this region, and (there’s) clean energy project potential in this area.” Although Bennett said it is unfortunate the project had a cost overrun already, it will bring millions of dollars worth of investments, hundreds of jobs and revenue to the province. firstname.lastname@example.org

Transit Police warn of e-device thefts in city staff reporter
Transit Police have serious concerns about a rising pattern in electronic device thefts hitting Burnaby. Since January, municipal police and RCMP have opened 700 files along the Metro Vancouver transit line, with a 31 per cent increase in the number of violent robberies for cellphones, tablets and other electronic devices. “We’re involved in joint forces operations with Burnaby RCMP to try and combat the problem around the SkyTrain stations in Burnaby,” said Anne Drennan, Transit Police spokesperson, in a phone interview. Of the 700 police files, Transit Police have opened 47 of them. Burnaby has 41 open cases in total, but not all are reported to the authorities. “We’ve likened this to the auto thefts in the ’90s when theft from autos was at epidemic proportions,” Drennan said. “It’s an under reported crime, especially for young people who either can’t be bothered or don’t think the police can help them, or get worried that their parents will be mad at them – so they don’t report it as being stolen.” Drennan said the thieves who steal the phones sell them quickly and it’s difficult for police to keep track of it. “It’s very difficult,” she said. “The numbers are so high that it’s very difficult for us to follow up on that kind of number of sales every day.” However, the police will monitor social media and often find people selling stolen electronics on Facebook. The way the police are trying to fight this is by making people aware of what they can do to stay safe. “People just need to know that they have to be aware of their surroundings when using their electronic devices,” Drennan said. “We cannot let ourselves get so engrossed on the little screen that we have no idea what’s going on beside or coming up behind us.” Transit Police are advising the public to keep cellphones close to the body, or if the phone is inside a bag or purse, to keep it on your lap and in eyesight. “We’re also recommending people to get free ‘find my phone’ apps,” she said. “They’re really helpful. It obviously allows us to trace and recover the phone and help with apprehension.”
Another problem with stolen electronics is that they can compromise the owner’s private informa-
tion. “Another offshoot of this, that we’re seeing, is one the phones have been
sold … to certain groups of individuals, what they do is mine personal information which leads to identity
theft.” Drennan said some applications allow owners to wipe or erase informa-
tion off the device. For more information, visit www.transitpolice. bc.ca.

Helping women a world away Local woman dedicates life to humanitarian work in war-ravaged Afghanistan Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Burnaby resident Lauryn Oates has been doing humanitarian work in Afghanistan since 2003, promoting international development, education and women’s rights. Oates became interested in the cause after reading a newspaper article on the Taliban’s treatment of women when she was just 14 years old. The now 31year-old human ON MY BEAT rights activist Jennifer Moreau recently returned to Canada to receive an Alumni Leadership Award from Royal Roads University in Victoria.

are free from the yoke of the Taliban, and the media sector is flourishing. Afghan music has made a come-back, along with so many other things that were banned by the Taliban, like kite flying. But the traumas of war are still there: thousands of people suffer from posttraumatic stress disorder and other mental illnesses, more basic infrastructure is needed, and restoring the rule of law is still a work in progress. And of course, the Taliban are still around, perpetrating their violence from the shadows now. Q: How about the women and girls? Have things improved for them? A: Massively. Women have returned to public life. They are visible in the society once again. You see them in the streets, on TV, in universities, running businesses, working in the government, and serving in the parliament (in fact Afghanistan has more women in its parliament than Canada does!). There is a strong women’s movement, with lots of outspoken activists. Attitudes towards the role of women are changing among men. There is no doubt still a long way to go, but I don’t think many people in Canada realize the enormity of the changes of the last decade – for the better.

Aid work: Taliban more interested in military targets
Q: Tell me about the poisoning attack on the school that you worked in. A: The Taliban have a wide range of methods for attacking the education system. One method is to poison school buildings or school wells. A very large girls’ high school in Kabul where we trained teachers was recently poisoned; however, the girls recovered. Q: How do you manage
working in unstable and dangerous conditions all the time? A: There is a risk to being in Afghanistan, but there is a greater risk to doing nothing. The impact I’ve made with my colleagues at CW4WAfghan has been well worth the risk. I feel a moral obligation to do this work. It’s also been my great privilege to work alongside Afghan women and girls, and to witness this extraordinary decade of change in the country. I can’t imagine doing anything else.
Q: What’s the closest call you’ve had? A: Hard to choose! I’ve been nearby several large explosions in Kabul. Last month there was a long shoot-out not too far from our office. I once accidentally walked into a mine field. But to be honest, life can be surprisingly normal in Afghanistan. I go grocery shopping, to the gym, see friends, eat out … life goes on during a war. Q: What’s your ideal goal? What would you like to achieve most through your work? A: I want every girl in Afghanistan to have a fighting chance of setting foot in a classroom. I want Canadians to recognize that all people – regardless
that we expect in our own society, like the right to an education.

educate girls? I am generally not a direct target, but all aid workers – Afghan and foreigners alike – are at risk by working in a war zone. More aid workers have been killed in Afghanistan than anywhere else in the world, usually from being near a target when a bomb went off. The Taliban are more interested in military and government targets; however, lately they have turned their attention increasingly to international agencies (like when they bombed the Red Cross last month) and to non-governmental organizations. However, Afghan teachers, principals, schools, and students have all been the targets of Taliban violence. Hundreds of girls’ schools have been burned down.

Marwa one step closer to Burnaby Jennifer Moreau
Wissam Nassar, 26, is hoping to reunite with his fiancée, a young refugee woman named Marwa who is trapped in Syria. A recent fundraiser brought in $2,500 to help with her costs to settle in Canada.
A young Burnaby man’s dream of reuniting with his fiancée is closer to coming true, following a recent benefit concert at a local church. Wissam Nassar, 26, came to Burnaby two years ago, after his family was sponsored as refugees by a Coquitlam couple, Ian and Heather Macdonald. But Nassar has a fiancée, Marwa, who is still in Syria, and the Macdonalds are now hoping to sponsor her to reunite the couple. The two families hosted the concert at the South Burnaby United Church on June 29 and raised $2,500, which will help pay for Marwa to come to Canada. “It’s clear that it’s going to happen,” said Jamie Macdonald, son of Ian and Heather. “It’s clear there will be enough money to cover her.” The Nassar family and Marwa are Palestinian refugees who fled Iraq and were living in Syria. With no passports or state of their own, they are ineligible to come to Canada through conventional means, even though they are refugees. The only way the Nassars were able to escape Syria was through private sponsorship, which can cost $13,000 to $14,000 a year. Money raised at the benefit show will help sponsor Marwa, and any funds leftover will help pay for her retraining as a nurse, her plane ticket to Vancouver and the couple’s wedding. “It was a great event and really touching,” said Jamie. “You would not believe how proud (Wissam’s) mother is. She was beaming all night. She was a little overwhelmed to see how many people she doesn’t know at all were interested in helping.” Jamie said Marwa could be here in a matter of weeks. They are waiting for the United Nations to safely escort her to Lebanon and put her on a plane to Vancouver.

UniverCity ready for more development Stefania Seccia staff reporter
UniverCity may not fall in the core of one of the city’s quadrants, but it certainly isn’t letting that stop it from getting on the development bandwagon in Burnaby. The community that’s been developing over the years next to Simon Fraser University has about 3,200 residents and is preparing for about 7,000 more. Laura Brenton used to live in East Vancouver, near Commercial Drive, before she decided to make the move from just seeing the mountains to being on top of one. “It’s a bit of a change, but we really like it,” Brenton said. “Sometimes we miss some of the restaurants, but it’s really good.” Brenton has worked at SFU since 2005. She moved up to UniverCity with her partner and three daughters who are 15, 14 and six years old. Brenton’s sister also lives three doors down with her husband and two children. Burnaby Mountain is known for its miserable winter months and snow dumps, but Brenton and her family has not been too put out by the weather.
“I thought it would affect me more. I was a bit nervous about that when I moved in, in October,” she said. “You don’t socialize as much in the winter, as not everyone is out in the courtyard, but surprisingly it has not affected us in the winter.” Brenton’s six-year-old daughterattendsUniversity Highlands Elementary School, while her teenagers take the bus to Burnaby Mountain Secondary. “We only had two snow days this year when my kids couldn’t make it to school – they wish we had more,” she said. While the draws of living in a city sometimes have Brenton missing her East Vancouver neighbourhood, she prefers the nightlife up on the mountain. “Sometimes I miss the Commercial Drive area, but it’s the best thing I’ve done for my girls,” she said. “Instead of people yelling, we’re hearing frogs at night (and) sometimes coyotes.” With the area slated for moredevelopment,Brenton said she hopes the plan includes the needs of growing families. Currently, her family rents a threebedroom place that’s a bit small for future needs.
“We want to stay up here, but with having teenagers it would be nicer to have bigger places,” she said. “My only hope is the community does grow and grow for the fact that the families are expanding. It would be great to get a coop up here. East Van has a lot of co-ops, and the Forest Grove area has co-ops. “It would be great to know if they could do something like that up here.” Brenton said her closeknit community, “great school”, and lack of a work commute for her means she’s likely to stay up on the mountain for as long as possible. “Everyone watches out for each other,” she added. “There’s lots of street hockey, kids hanging out and playing outside. It’s great. “For the few days it’s clear up here without clouds, the views down below are worth it.” Gordon Harris, president and CEO of SFU’s Community Trust, said he’s excited Burnaby council approved the next major phase of development, which will include 714 homes featured in lower buildings with some larger ground-oriented units, according to a media
release. “Our current residents have been asking for this kind of diversity in what we’re building,” Harris said in the release. “The new zoning also fulfills a promise that we made to the city and to our residents when we won approval for a higher-density, highrise
mix in phase three. We effectively transferred some of the density from the phase four site into phase three, which meant that we could provide more, larger, family-oriented units than originally envisioned.” For more information, visit www.univercity.ca. email@example.com

Canada Cup of Beer is coming to Burnaby this weekend with 15 breweries vying to quench the city’s thirst. This year, local brewery Dead Frog will unveil an amber ale in memory of the late Colin Jack, co-founder of Just Here for the Beer and Canada Cup of Beer. “I approached Dead Frog to come up with a beer that symbolized Colin and … they jumped right on board,” said Rick Mohabir, Jack’s best friend and co-founder. Dead Frog’s brewmaster Tony Dewald came up with an amber-style ale with a Caribbean twist, blending rum and amber ale and flavoured with white oak wood chips. “It’s got a very rich flavour to it, but you taste the rum on the back end of the beer,” Mohabir said. “It’s not overly pronounced, it (has) a very nice, smooth finish to it.” Jack’s beer will be available for tasting at the event on Saturday, along with hundreds of other beers from breweries across the province. “The Canada Cup of Beer was our largest event, so it’s Vancouver’s largest outdoor beer festival,” he said. The event started as a way to showcase craft beers and to show the public there’s more to beer than just what the big breweries offer, Mohabir said. “Craft beer didn’t really have the reach it does now, but what we helped do was start getting that renaissance going,” he said. This year there will be 15 breweries, including Burnaby’s own Steamworks at the event. Mohabir said the breweries usually bring about four different beers for guests to try out. “There’ll be a very good selection for people, especially the novices,” he said. “Everything from light, crisp lagers all the way to some really beautiful, rich, dark ambers.” Craft beers allow breweries to play around with flavours and tastes, which has really helped pull in new beer drinkers, Mohabir added. Canada Cup of Beer starts at 1 p.m. and runs until 6 p.m. at Swangard Stadium, 3883 Imperial St. Tickets are available at canadacupofbeer.com.

Question: This question is about an insect that secretes a foam substance from its body. It can be found along walkways where there is bush. What is it? Daryl Shim, via email Answer: It’s called a spitbug, and inside all that foam is are larvae. Spitbugs overwinter as eggs in the soil. In spring, they hatch, climb up plant stems and suck sap from the leaves. The foam is from the plant juices they suck, and they use it as a protection while they develop into adults, which look like grasshoppers. If you need to get rid of them in a garden, you can always blast them away with water from a hose. Send gardening questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The road to sustainable sushi isn’t always an easy one, but it’s well worth the journey.
At least, that’s the experience of certain Vancouver-area sushi chefs who have made the commitment to offering sustainable seafood options. Sustainable seafood has become more and more popular in recent years, thanks to heightened awareness around the issues of overﬁshing and unsustainable ﬁshing practices, and initiatives such as Ocean Wise, Vancouver Aquarium’s national sustainable seafood program. This increased awareness has sparked questions among consumers as to where they can enjoy sustainable sushi options in the Vancouver area. The good news is that there are a growing number of Ocean Wise restaurants that provide sustainable sushi options on their menu (see below for a sample list of Ocean Wise sushi partners).
then wrapped with ume-infused pickled daikon.
Zen Japanese Restaurant in West Vancouver was Canada’s ﬁrst Ocean Wise sushi partner, and joined the program in 2009. With the help of Ocean Wise, the team at Zen was able to replace unsustainable seafood options with Ocean Wise choices. “Prior to joining the Ocean Wise program, we practiced seafood sustainability on our own,” said the restaurant’s chef, Nobu Ochi. “However, it just became harder and harder to ﬁnd accurate information on what is sustainable, so that’s why we jumped on board, and used information provided by Ocean Wise to help us in our quest to source sustainable ingredients,” he adds.
“It is well worth the effort because we are committed to seafood sustainability, to the
Mulberry retirement residence
Mike McDermid, partner relations manager of the Ocean Wise program, says that one factor challenging the sustainability of seafood for sushi is the popularity of relatively few items for sushi – speciﬁcally shrimp/prawns, tuna and salmon – each of which has ocean-friendly and non-ocean friendly choices. He advises consumers to support Ocean Wise partners who offer sushi, such as Zen and Minami, and select menu options labeled with the Ocean Wise symbol.
“One opportunity provided by non-traditional cuisines in our market, such as sushi, is that it can introduce us to new and potentially more sustainable variety of seafood options,” says McDermid. “Good examples of nowpopular sustainable sushi options include local albacore tuna, sableﬁsh and B.C. spot prawns, in addition to items like mackerel, sea urchin, and geoduck.” You can be part of the solution by choosing Ocean Wise menu items at partner restaurants. Visit oceanwise.ca for a full list of partner Ocean Wise restaurants, or download the Ocean Wise iPhone app for an easy, onthe-go resource. ■

Race starts at corner of Hastings & Carleton Gold Sponsors
Sous chef Alan Ferrer of Minami Restaurant echoes a similar sentiment. Aburi Restaurants Canada opened Minami in Yaletown last June, which is a sister establishment to the ever-popular Miku Restaurant, which opened in 2007.
“Sourcing sustainable seafood for sushi is difﬁcult, and there is always the balance that needs to be struck between providing green options and meeting our business imperatives,” says Ferrer. “However, we are taking on the commitment to provide and expand Ocean Wise Zen Japanese menu options, and aim to Restaurant’s original Ocean Wise Sakura Roll do our part in educating - seasoned tuna and consumers on what zucchini tempura sustainable seafood rolled in egg crépe, options are available.”
It hasn’t always been an easy endeavor to source sashimi-grade Ocean Wise seafood for his sushi, but Ochi is committed to providing sustainable options, even with the challenges that may come with it.

Question: How can I reduce the amount of white clover in our lawn? We absolutely do not wish to use a herbicide, but I am not sure what will work. My wife does not mind clover and says it is good for the soil. But I would prefer a bit more grass. Zdenek Skoumal, via email Answer: Clover is hard to remove. It has fairly deep roots and seeds around a lot. It’s a low-growing plant that loves sun. That’s why one easy deterrent is to set your mower to give a much longer cut; at least seven centimetres (three inches) stem length. This tends to shade out the clover which will have to make more effort to grow and be less visible when it does. A longer cut will help your grass become stronger since it will have longer leaves to perform photosynthesis and this will give it an increased
The Journey to Greener Sushi
All this is relatively little work compared with the task of trying to remove clover. Removing clover could involve digging up your lawn and the deep clover roots, putting landscape fabric down and adding about seven centimetres (three inches) of topsoil then spreading grass seed (or re-sodding).
food supply. Poor soil favours an increase of clover. Lush, healthy grass competes strongly with clover. Lawn fertilizer should be high nitrogen, which favours leaf growth, and low in phosphorus, which stimulates flower formation. Topdressing once a year with compost will help feed the grass. You could always rake some grass seed into this topdressing anywhere you feel grass is thin. But you need to choose your mix carefully because many grass seed mixes include some white clover seed. That’s because clover fixes nitrogen and helps to fertilize grass. Go easy on lime, or eliminate it for a while. This is a balancing act because the lime deters moss while it encourages clover. Especially if your lawn is at all shady, lack of lime will result in more moss. Then you’d need to decide which is the worst evil: clover or moss. I wonder if it’s the look of white clover flowers that you really want to reduce. Is it possible you wouldn’t mind the green clover leaves nearly as much? Especially with a longer cut, the green clover leaves won’t be easy to distinguish from the grass.

A’s harry Hawks for Crosby title Tom Berridge sports editor
Coquitlam won its first Tier 1 championship title in seven years at the 28th Jack Crosby Memorial novice all-star lacrosse tournament in Burnaby. The novice Adanacs avenged last year’s championship final loss and their only defeat in preliminary round play, doubling the two-time defending champion Oakville, Ont., Hawks 10-5 in the title game at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Sunday. Coquitlam MVP Dawson Brown scored six times, including his final tally scored while face-first on the floor in the third period, to lead the novice A’s. “It really (feels like a provincial championship),” said Brown after the game. “We just won this big, huge cup in front of a large crowd. It’s a job well done.” But Brown deflected most of the credit to a tenacious Coquitlam defence that harried the Hawks throughout the 60 minutes running time. The A’s big D was particularly active in the final frame, backing up the Oakville runners for much of the period, and when the Hawks did break on goal, Tristan Lomas was there to stop most of them. Lomas gave way to the backup with eight minutes left in the third period, allowing just four goals on 27 shots. “It was a good recipe,” said Coquitlam head coach Mike Kemp. “I’m proud of these kids. They’ll be buddies forever.” David Charney opened the scoring on a long screened shot from the right side for the A’s in the second minute of the first period. Drake Domme had the visitors up 7-3 with a goal at the second-period buzzer. Oakville’s Brian Jackman had two goals and a single assist to lead the Ontario representative. In the Tier 1 bronze medal match Vancouver Island’s Westshore Whalers defeated Delta 5-2. Nanaimo sailed unbeaten through the Tier 2 division, winning its second second straight final over Kamloops 9-4 to take home the gold. Ridge-Meadows came from behind to upset

league and Coastal Cup titles. “I was really pleased with that. I’m most happy with the fairplay award,” said Burnaby coach Zico Najim. Edris Najim figured in all four u-16 goals, scoring once and assisting on three others. Max Williams counted a pair of tallies, while Tyus Baptiste also scored for Burnaby. “Our possession was beautiful. They worked for it all year,” said coach Najim. “ Trevor Hughes posted the shutout for the Selects, while u-15
The Burnaby Lakers are growing up before our eyes. Hot off a series-clinching 10-8 win on the Island over the Western Lacrosse Association-leading Victoria Shamrocks last week, Burnaby peppered the slumping New Westminster Salmonbellies for five first-period goals en route to a 10-7 victory at Russ Heard night at home on Friday. “It feels good to be part of this team. I think we can do something,” said Burnaby first star Robert Church, the fourth overall draft pick in this year’s junior entry draft. “I knew I was going into a young team that had a lot of talent. I was excited to go to a young team.” Church, too, has brought a lot of excitement in just four games to the Lakers, which are 3-1 with big wins over both Langley and Victoria since the crafty playmaker came on board. With the wins, Burnaby improved its fourth-place record to 7-6-0 with a five-point bulge on both Coquitlam and New West. The senior A Lakers opened the scoring on a transition break by Mike Brascia in the second minute. A minute later, Church and Chase Williams followed less than 50 seconds apart as Burnaby jumped out to a 5-1 first-period lead at the Bill Copeland centre. Justin Salt and second star Tyler Digby, with his second goal of the game on a power play, opened up a 7-1 lead before New Westminster could solve Burnaby goalie Dan Lewis. Lewis was sharp in goal with 30 saves, while New Westminster keeper Neil Tyacke was kept busy all

The Burnaby Selects won two A Cups and were runner-up in a third at the B.C. Soccer Provincial championships in Langley on Sunday. The regular season champion under-14 Selects went unbeaten, including a dominant 7-0 victory over the Kamloops Blaze in the gold medal boys’ final.

Lakers shine on special night
Burnaby Royals settled for a silver medal following a 3-2 loss to Richmond United in the u-18 boys’ final. The u-14s won their second consecutive provincial A title with a textbook effort. “It was a wonderful game, amazing energy and effort,” said Burnaby coach Franco Iuele. “The team’s philosophy was simple – to dominate possession and to keep the ball.” “Our defending was impeccable by virtue of the players’ dedication to retrieving the ball quickly and to take away the other team’s space. It was a dominating
performance in every position, starting with our keeper,” added coach Mario Montagliani. Alan Camacho Soto scored four times in the final, while Tak Tasaka added two goals. Mathew Manetta scored the seventh and final goal for Burnaby. Goalie Aleksandar Kalajdzic allowed just two goals in the fourgame tournament. Burnaby lost its Coastal Cup semifinal to Richmond United on penatly kicks. The u-16 Selects collected a rare quadruple, winning a Provincial Cup and fairplay award to go along with the team’s earlier

Sebastian Salas, a 25year-old Vancouverite, won the King of the Mountain Jersey as the top climber at the Tour of California, one of the biggest races in North America. After back-to-back wins at Superweek last year in Gastown and in Burnaby, Ken Hanson has had no fewer than seven stage wins or podium appearances this season. Olympic bronze medallist Gillian Carleton of Victoria tops a strong women’s field at B.C. Superweek this year.

Matt Beers scored the eventual game-winning tally midway through the second stanza on an unassited breakaway. “We have a lot of potential. It’s too early to tell, but it feels like this could be a year we have a run,” said Church, who was the Minto Cup MVP in 2010 when Coquitlam won the junior A championships. “There’s a tight-knit feel. It’s a fun place to be. With all the teams I’ve been on – that’s where it starts.” For the honouree of the night, the result was bittersweet.
