Refinery application denied Stefania Seccia staff reporter

Chevron’s Burnaby refinery has been denied designation as a “priority destination,” disappointing Canada’s largest energy workers’ union. On June 19, Chevron applied to the National Energy Board to designate its Burnaby refinery as a priority destination. The designation would have meant it would have first call on oil flowing through the Trans Mountain Pipeline system. The request was denied on July 11. “The (board’s) decision will see Canadian oil flow to the U.S. when a Canadian refinery is being starved of supply,” said Dave Coles, Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union president, in a media release. “The (board’s) decision will allow large U.S. refiners to continue (jamming) the system at the expense of a Canadian refinery that has been relying upon the pipeline as its primary source of supply for 60 years.” The union says Chevron’s refinery is running out of crude to process because of increased direct exports to Washington, “which uses their large size to overbid for pipeline capacity.” “The board’s denial of Chevron’s request for priority access to pipeline flows puts 250 value-added Canadian refining jobs in jeopardy,” Cole states. “The (board) has created a distorted market to the prejudice of the only Canadian refinery receiving oil from the Trans Mountain Pipeline.” But, the National Energy Board maintains that the Chevron refinery did not prove it was unable to meet its minimum run rate and that it could not reasonably ensure its long-term viability, according to a media release.

Pet sales: Nikki Forbes, founder of a Burnaby cat rescue society, wants the city to ban the sale

City animal rights activists fight for a pet sales ban, but local pet shop owners say they aren’t the problem Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

A local woman who runs an animal rescue society is adamant that the city should ban the sale of puppies and kittens, but local pet shop owners disagree. Burnaby resident Nikki Forbes, who

founded the non-profit society Action for Animals in Distress, thinks the city should “absolutely” ban the sale of puppies and kittens in Burnaby. “It should definitely be banned. It’s disgusting,” she said. “We should not be putting money in the pockets of backyard breeders.” Forbes alleged that Pet Habitat in Metrotown sells kittens from mills. She recommended people adopt cats and dogs, instead of buying from pet stores supplied by backyard breeders. Mills are often characterized as places where cats or dogs are bred for profit and

kept in cramped or substandard conditions with little regard for their welfare. Forbes’ rescue society has set up adoption centres in pet shops, where people can take home a pet for an adoption fee that includes the cost of spaying or neutering. But Tom Peters, owner of Pet Habitat in Metropolis at Metrotown, said he does not sell kittens and puppies from mills. “Nobody in their right mind would actually do that, because it’s not beneficial to anybody,” he said.

City food banks in need over summer Cayley Dobie staff reporter

For many, summer means days of barbecues and picnics, but for the more than 28,000 people who rely on food banks to make ends meet, fresh produce isn’t always available. But this summer, the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society is trying something a little different. “In an attempt to be a better food bank and increase the amount of nutrition that we’re able to provide, we’ve totally retooled (the handout bags),” says Kay Thody, communications director for the society. There are two food bank locations in Burnaby, and by May they start running out of food donated during the holiday season – in fact, overall need at the Burnaby depots increased 13 per cent from 2011 to 2012 during July and August. This is the time of year when the society relies on purchasing foods to meet the needs of its clients, Thody says. “We are really fortunate where we are, our rear ends are kind of plunked in farmland,” she says. “We do have the opportunity to work with farmers, … so now we actually have farmers growing crops for us.” By buying in bulk, the society can make the most out of its money and supply fresh produce to people who use food banks, in Burnaby and the Lower Mainland. But Thody says it’s not just the society that needs to rethink what’s being donated. People should also consider the nutritional value of the foods they’re donating, she says. “We’re asking people to spend a bit more time looking at that label when they are thinking of making a donation,” she says. Instead of grabbing just any old item from the shelf, Thody says the society is encouraging people to read the label to ensure they’re donating the healthiest foods. “We just completed a nine-month process with nutritionists from Vancouver Coastal Health Authority, in which we had two nurses and dietitians … work with us and completely redo the bag program,” she says. Throughout the process, dietitians and nurses created a template for the society that outlined which foods were the healthiest and which should be removed from the Food bank Page 5

Did cat survive 30-storey fall? Burnaby cat in fine form after possible tumble 30 storeys from a highrise apartment balcony Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

His name is Bond – Cat Bond – and after mysteriously disappearing from their Burnaby highrise, Stephen and Sara Stewart thought he was a goner. Back in May, the Stewarts went out for dinner one evening, only to return and find their one-year-old cat was missing from their apartment on the 30th floor of a Brentwood highrise. Cat Bond has a bad habit of walking along the perilous outer ledges of the highrise balcony, so the Stewarts assumed the worst. “My wife went down to check for him on ground floor,” Stephen said. “She checked some of the bushes beneath our balcony expecting to see this splattered cat somewhere.” But there was no Bond, so she went back inside and checked again the following day. Stephen said he watched his wife from the 30th floor, searching for the cat below. “I could see her getting kind of teary eyed,” he said. “She was rubbing her eyes a bit, I can tell by her body actions, she was getting emotional.” According to Stephen, that’s when she spotted Cat Bond – alive and cowering under a bush. Sara took the cat in her arms and gave Stephen a thumbsup sign. And while no one saw a feline falling from the sky, the Stewarts are convinced the only plausible explanation is that Cat Bond fell 30 storeys and Jennifer Moreau/burnaby now survived. “There’s just no other way, unless For a video he climbed down.

Sanders brings southern flavour to fest T

he Burnaby NOW arts reporter, Marelle Reid, recently chatted with John Lee Sanders about his career and upcoming performance at this summer’s Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival.

Question: Where are you from? Answer: I grew up in Mississippi. I moved there when I was 10 years old. Mississippi, Alabama, Louisana; I lived around a lot ON MY BEAT of the south, until Marelle Reid I was around 26 and I moved to San Francisco. But my roots are in the south. Q: How did you get into Blues music? A: My brother was a great piano player in a rock and roll, rhythm and blues band and they were pretty well known. And I met a DJ who was really wellknown around Alabama; he discovered Otis Redding and he started putting me in shows for big name acts when I was 12 or 13 years old. I started out as a singer, then I learned piano, saxophone, guitar, and that’s kind of how I got started. Q: Did you take music lessons as a kid or did you learn on your own? A: I did both. I was playing piano from first grade; from five or six years old until I graduated from the University of North Texas where I majored in composition. So I have this hybrid background because I grew up with Roots and Blues music, black music, you know, Blues and all that, but then this was during the Vietnam War, so that was a way to avoid the draft, but I wanted to learn everything; you know, classical, and orchestral music, and everything, so I’ve got a pretty broad musical education and background. Q: So you’ve produced music outside the Blues and Roots genre? A: Oh yeah, I’ve done film scores and I’ve played with a lot of singer-songwriters and written stuff with big bands, you name it. You have to know everything, every style there is. Q: Did you always know you wanted to be a musician? A: I definitely did. I met Elvis Presley when I was about five or six years old, right at the peak of his career. My grandmother lived in Memphis, a few blocks away from Aretha Franklin and Elvis and all that, so I was kind of around for the birth of rock and roll, when it was kind of starting. All these kind of things started me on that path. Q: Did you get to see Elvis perform? A: I never got to see him perform. I was pretty young, he was on the road a lot and then he went into the army and then started making movies and then when he came out he started doing the Vegas thing. At the time, I thought Elvis was into music that was a little too Vegas for me, at the time. Now I’ve learned to appreciate more of what he was doing. Q: Who are your main influences? A: Well, I love the early Blues stuff.


Contributed photo/burnaby now

Blues man: John Lee Sanders has an eclectic style and has worked on everything from film scores to writing big band music. Sanders is performing at the Burnaby Blues and Roots festival being held at Deer Lake Park on Saturday, Aug. 10. Ray Charles, Muddy Waters, BB King and then a lot of the solo R&B people; Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder. Those are my main influences. Elton John. I worked with Long John Baldry for 20 years, and Baldry discovered Elton and he was one of the early influences on me as a writer. … I grew up in the Mississippi Delta, home of Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, BB King, Albert King, I mean all them in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame now, but they grew up on plantations and it was kind of looked down upon when I was growing up. ‘Oh, you need to learn the classics.’ But when I went there and saw the respect that they gave the musicians, it was like, ‘OK, this has been validated in my mind.’ Bluegrass was kind of looked down upon as a lower class kind of art form. Q: If you could jam with three people, dead or alive, who would you pick? A: Well, I’ve already jammed with two of them. I’ve played with Stevie Wonder, and in Vancouver I got to play with Jimmie Page when he came with Long John Baldry. Well, there’s so many. Gosh, that’s a hard one. Oh, I was a huge Beatles fan, so Paul McCartney. Or Elton (John). Q: What prompted your move to Vancouver from the U.S.? A: That’s a long story. I started touring with Long John Baldry in ’86, ’87 – I came up here to do a record with him. We were on the same record label and I toured with him about once a year and

met a woman on one of my tours in 1998 and we got married in 2006 and bought a house in White Rock and another one in Kelowna. We’re divorced now so I’m back in Vancouver, so that’s kind of how I got up here. But I always thought I’d live up here. When I first came in ’86 and Expo was going on it was really an exciting time in the city. It had a nice energy to it and I got to work with a lot of the musicians in Vancouver. You know it’s not the same kind of scene as it was when I first came up. It’s kind of sad there’s not enough venues for us to play. Q: Have you played in Burnaby before? A: No, I haven’t played in Burnaby. I’ve played all over the Lower Mainland; Chilliwack, White Rock, North Van, blues festivals. Q: What can your audience expect from your set here in August? A: Well, it’s a little more eclectic Blues than your average Blues band. It’s got a lot of New Orleans influence, and New Orleans has jazz, blues, gospel, Dixieland, soul, Caribbean, reggae. It’s a little more African. I mean it’s all African, but it has a mixture of all of that kind of stuff. It’s very eclectic, so you can cover a lot in that. I mean, a lot of blues artists all start to sound the same after a while, but they’re all different tempos; I write a lot of my own stuff, my songs have a lot of stories, there’s a lot of humour. It’s very happy. It’s a very joyous kind of culture down there. So, my music has a lot of that.

The Edmonds City Fair is on this Sunday, July 21, and the whole community is invited to come out and celebrate. “I think it’s the major highlight of the summer for the community, next to the Canada Day celebration,” said Antonia Beck, chair of the city fair organizing committee. The event is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on a stretch of Edmonds Street

between Canada Way and Kingsway. The fair includes the Edmonds Classic Car Show, a collection of vintage cars and motorcycles. There will be live music from Rainshadow and the Centaurs, food for sale, and businesses along Edmonds will have their doors open. The South Burnaby Neighbourhood House is setting up an “international village,” with a collection of various display tables showcasing people’s different cultures. There will be children’s

rides, a small petting zoo, and other fun activities for kids. There is also a talent search at noon, and the first place prize is a $100 gift card for Lougheed Town Centre. (Call Jeff Scheffel at Volunteer Burnaby at 604294-5533 to sign up.) In an effort to make the city more welcoming to newcomers, the World in Burnaby campaign will be there, so make sure you get your photo taken with the giant, inflatable globe and post it on Twitter with the hashtag #WorldInBurnaby.

food packages. “A lot of the tinned products have a tendency to be very, very high in sodium,” she explains. “Sodium is one of those sneaky detrimental things and so often times there’s products available at a very similar price that is a healthier option.” In support of the society’s shift to a

model that fosters self-sufficiency and healthy eating, the society is hosting an event on Monday, July 22. Seeding Change is a day-long event where people can come by and learn about sustainable gardening, plant a seed or take seeds home. The event runs from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the north side of the Vancouver Art Gallery at 750 Hornby St. For more information, visit

According to Beck, the fair is put on as a joint effort between community members, local groups and the City of Burnaby, and it’s been happening for approximately nine years. “It’s something that people in the neighbourhood can just walk to. … They are not going to have to spend a ton of money, … there will be lots of free activities going on.” For more information, go to www.edmondsfesti

So consider how you can help, even when there isn’t a jolly old man in red reminding you about why giving is so important.

The food banks can always use cash donations. If you do plan to donate food, consider what non-perishable items you’d want to feed your own family. Because whether or not people have enough money to eat well, they still have the same nutritional needs as anyone else.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR No-cycling trails needed Dear Editor,

Growing up both “mountain” biking and conserving wetlands and natural environments in the Lower Mainland (and appearing at council meetings around both issues), a glaring absence becomes apparent. The biker in me loves to cycle in the forests. That bikes, their tumbles and spectators, erode forest quality and destroy forest undergrowth is indisputable. Every biking presentation to council nowadays boasts of working to “restore” the trails and streams. No amount of trail-work or replanting afterwards will remove silt from ephemeral ponds or undo destroyed animal homes and gels in streams eroded

and silted from the trails and undergrowth by steep terrain biking. The conservationist in me knows that to achieve the “sustainability” promised in our community plan, Burnaby must set aside specific areas, especially steep terrain, as no cycling. Many years of experience around North America have shown if several trails in a watershed are deemed “multiuse,” no frogs or salamanders’ areas will survive the silting. Without amphibians, the insects displace native plants, and non-native invasive species thrive – and on and on. Most children now grow up in Burnaby without ever seeing a salamander or hearing a frog. We must conclude that most mountain trails need

to be “walker only” if the forests and wetlands have any chance of ever resembling second-growth forests instead of just tree parks. (Dogs, too, harm amphibians and watersheds as they spread devastating amphibian viruses when owners unwittingly traipse dogs from one stream or wetlands to another. Where dog use is respectfully limited, amphibians are sighted in wetted areas!) So, cyclists, we’re good at being heard at council meetings, so let’s band together and urge Burnaby to create and foster recreation cycling trails only if there are preserved, non-cycling trails through the few viably sustainable natural areas in Burnaby. I will support cycling in sustainable natural settings, once Burnaby does the hard work of protecting our precious natural heritage, not just the easy part of saying “yes” to cycling. Thanks, too, to the wonderful Stoney Creek streamkeepers for their decades of work on this precious stream. Jeff Anderson, Burnaby

Stop towers at UniverCity

Dear Editor:

Re: UniverCity ready for more development, Burnaby NOW, July 10. I live in the Glenayre neighbourhood of Port Moody just below the UniverCity residential development. The original official community plan between the City of Burnaby and Simon Fraser University limited building height to 10 storeys. The first projects in the southeast corner were six to eight storeys. But the heights have crept up to and over 10 storeys in subsequent construction. The condo tower currently under construction will have 14 storeys. A few months ago, at a UniverCity open house, I was shocked to see, on their scale model, a proposed condo tower for Phase 4 that exceeds 20 storeys! The original development concept proposed a sustainable urban village. What “village” on Earth has 20-storey towers? My fear, all along, is that the top of Burnaby Mountain will become a pincushion of tall condo towers resembling Metrotown. Derek Wilson, Port Moody

Legislature: Calm waters weeks campaigning in the Westside-Kelowna byelection, so she hasn’t had much of a physical presence. But there’s no doubt who is in charge, as her byelection win cemented her hold on her party. Just a few months ago, people were plotting to force her out of the job, and now she is firmly steering the ship with apparently calm waters ahead. ◆ B.C.’s first-ever Green party MLA, Andrew Weaver, has demonstrated an ability to get under the skin of the NDP. He isn’t given much opportunity to ask questions in question period, but he does get to vote on things. His

was the only one with diving blocks). A few months ago at a meet in Vancouver, we were talking with other parents who expressed displeasure (to put it mildly) at the quality of our facilities and did not enjoy attending our meets. Well, I must say, they are in for a very pleasant surprise next year when they come. Hosting them in such a modern, beautiful facility will be a pleasure.

decision to vote in favour of the B.C. Liberal government’s budget really irritated a number of NDP MLAs, who voiced their objections on social media. Weaver told me he voted for it because the election outcome made it obvious people want a balanced budget, so he was following the public’s lead. He said he didn’t necessarily think the budget will actually be balanced when all is said and done, but he was in favour of at least the concept of a balanced budget (something that sets him apart from the NDP). ◆ Clark has been able to reward most members of her caucus with cabinet posts, parliamentary sec-

retary appointments, committee memberships and caucus positions, most of which come with a boost in salary. Two MLAs, however, have been frozen out: Moira Stilwell and Sam Sullivan. Stilwell has been on the outs with Clark for months, and Sullivan beat Clark for the Vancouver mayoralty some years back. It looks like Clark is not in a forgiving mood towards some people. I wonder whether she will display a similar attitude to some key people in the business community who were less than loyal before her miracle win.

Refinery: Chevron won’t get first dibs on piped oil continued from page 1

According to the board, it’s Chevron’s responsibility to design a portfolio of supply options that will best mitigate its supply risk and ensure long-term viability of the refinery. The board also noted that nomination and capacity allocation procedures are likely contributing to allocation issues on the pipeline and that Trans Mountain should submit a revised nomination or capacity allocation procedure to address the issue by Sept. 30.

“Based on the evidence provided, the board found that Chevron’s Burnaby refinery did not satisfy the criteria for (priority destination) and therefore should not be designated a priority destination,” according to the board’s media release. “Among other reasons, the board observed that Chevron had consistently met its 40,000 (barrels per day) minimum run rate using the existing options in its supply portfolio.”

According to Peters, a ban may not necessarily solve the kitten and puppy mill problem, as people can get pets online and a prohibition on sales may drive the problem underground. “If it’s a puppy mill situation, address that issue, go after the puppy mills,” he said. “Don’t shut down a legitimate business on the speculation that they are the ones that are causing this.” Peters suggested an alternative, where anyone advertising to sell pets must be inspected and certified first. “If they are not allowed to advertise, they can’t sell, and if they can’t sell, they won’t produce,” he said. Katherine Kinman, president at King Ed Pet Centre, said all of her kittens come from her customers, who have bought cats from her shop that then had kittens. Kinman said she does not pay people for the kittens but covers their care costs, and that she would rather sell them to good homes than have them go to the SPCA where they could be put down if they are not adopted.

Like Peters, she would prefer regulation instead of banning kitten and puppy sales. “I think it’s very disgusting,” she said. “Yes, there is a problem out there, but I think (for) most pets sold in pet stores it’s not a problem.” Marcie Moriarty, chief prevention and enforcement officer with the B.C. SPCA, said the organization is not naïve enough to think a ban would fix the problem. “However, the sale of these animals, especially unspayed and un-neutered is a concern, and it’s one avenue where we have an opportunity to take a proactive measure in a community,” she said. “Of course there are people who continue to sell on the Internet.” For more on this issue, see Jennifer Moreau’s blog at

Peters said the shop’s kittens are from people’s homes in a town in Northern Quebec and that he doesn’t pay for the kittens, but he covers their transportation and vet costs. According to Peters, the Quebec town does not have an adequate shelter system, and the kittens could be put down if they aren’t adopted. Animal welfare advocates have been pushing the City of Burnaby to ban the sale of kittens, puppies and rabbits, and while city staff recently finished a draft report on general animal control issues, no ban has yet been proposed. According to Peters, there are no other shops in Burnaby besides his selling dogs; only one other shop – King Ed Pet Centre – sells kittens.

Fifteen-year-old Maya Garlick is among 10 lucky winners of the RCMP’s Name the Puppy contest announced last week. Garlick was among 5,000 people who entered the national contest to choose names for 10 future police dogs. Entries had to begin with the letter F and couldn’t be longer than nine letters, or two syllables. According to a media release, Garlick’s entry, Freya, was chosen by the RCMP for a female German shepherd born at the police dog service training centre in Innisfail, Alta. “It came as such a surprise when I heard I won. I was so excited as I knew there were a lot of people who entered,” Garlick said. Officers from the RCMP Lower Mainland district integrated dog service presented Garlick with a package on July 4, which included a photo of Freya and a certificate congratulating her on her winning entry.

Developer building his legacy in the Heights Stefania Seccia staff reporter

Instead of moving on from Burnaby to seek his fortune, one local developer decided to stay where he was born and raised to give something back to the community. Peter Censorio grew up in the Burnaby Heights area where his family planted their roots. He attended Capitol Hill Elementary, graduated from Alpha Secondary School and even worked at the Hastings hotspot, Anton’s Pasta Bar, in his youth. Now 42, he’s working on revitalizing the neighbourhood through his development business, Censorio Group, which he established in 2003. “We started out as an interior design company, we’re a very designed-focus group so we took that and basically started with single-family homes in 2003 and moved into family stuff in Burnaby,” Censorio said. After working in interior design and making a name for himself, the Burnaby resident worked with major players on the development scene and made the transition into development. After honing his skills, he built 40 cottages on the Sunshine Coast. Censorio said he’s concerned with preserving the area he grew up in and his latest development, Altezza, is just the start. The Altezza spot is at 4710 Hastings St. and is a low-rise building, with about 21 units. It also has retail space currently filled by Chez Christophe Chocolaterie Patisserie and Adele-Rae Florist. “I’ve always looked around the neighbourhood,” he said. “I remember the building with the first video store, first pizza place. … There’s a lot of memories going down there, and so being able to do something, I wanted to give it back.” Censorio said the Heights is equivalent to Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive, as far as esthetics and placement go – but it has a way to go before it can be that famous. He said his goal is to keep the small mom-and-pop shops that made the Heights the place it is today in the neighbourhood, and is doing so by making more affordable yet modern retail space available. When the owner of the floral shop Adele-Rae was starting to look for new space, it was a chance encounter with a representative from the Censorio Group

Larry Wright/burnaby now

New heights: Peter Censorio developed the new Altezza building on Hastings Street, right in the neighbourhood he grew up in. Censorio is hoping to build on the neighbourhood’s tradition of mom-and-pop shops. that would lead her to the new spot in Altezza. Kathy Hanson said someone came in to her former shop, near Hastings Street and Gilmore Avenue, to drop off brochures about the condos in Altezza and one of her staff members asked if they had retail space, as well. “Within a few hours we got a call, and Peter himself said, ‘I’ll come, and I’ll take you,’” she said. “So he came and picked me up and drove me down here and showed it to me. And just talking with him, it just felt right.” Hanson said the landlord wanted to raise the rent to a cost she couldn’t afford, but she wanted to stay in the Heights neighbourhood. “It all seemed so right for me,” she added. “And then I got to stay in the

Heights. I could afford the rent.” Although she’s downsized from about 2,500 square feet to 1,200 sq. ft., Hanson said her business, which was bought by her mother in 1963, will adapt to the change. “He’s been really accommodating, really,” she said. “He’s not done it for a long time, either. But he’s really good and happy. His mom lives in the building … and actually a couple of my regular customers that I’ve had for years that have lived elsewhere have moved in.” While maintaining an urban village theme, the Censorio Group also gets its inspiration from European design. “We’re doing a project in New West right now, and it has all Italian appliances,” he said. “We’re putting in built-in coffee machines. It’s those little things that

make a bit of a difference.” Altezza is also architecturally inspired by Censorio’s Italian heritage. “The quality, you see it,” he said. “It has more of a Tuscan theme, definitely a European theme – there are a lot of Europeans that live in this area. Europe is always leading in fashion, it’s always a step ahead –we always take the general characteristics of design and put our own little twist on them.” On the horizon, Censorio said he’s working on another development across from the Altezza building, is developing a building in New Westminster’s downtown area and hopes to move his offices from Vancouver to the Heights so he can walk to work.

City scientists work on skin cancer phone app MOVERS & SHAKERS Stefania Seccia


urnaby happens to have some of the greatest scientific minds working today, attempting to solve some of the world’s leading problems.

Recently, MetaOptima Technology Inc., founded by a team of Simon Fraser University and University of British Columbia scientists, was recognized for its idea of a smartphone app to help monitor, record and assess potentially cancerous skin lesions. The local health tech company made it as a top 25 finalist of the 2013 BCIC-New Ventures Competition, which is one of North America’s largest technology business idea

competitions. “We were incredibly fortunate to be part of the New Venture B.C. Competition and to have the chance to work closely with such a dedicated group of mentors and experts,” said Dr. Maryam Sadeghi, MetaOptima’s co-founder and CEO. “Thanks to the organizers of this fantastic competition.” The smartphone app, “Molescope” relies on a low-cost, smart mini-

microscope that provides 60X magnification plus automated visualization of health or non-healthy moles. It helps users examine their skin and keep track of moles over time to catch any abnormalities. The app also provides access to expert consultations from dermatologists and helps the user book local appointments online. “I learned that it’s critical to have a strategic perspective, always,” she

said. “We networked with many awesome mentors with great industry insight, and we are so excited to learn more and more. Although we are working hard to be in (the) top three, at the end of the day there is nothing more valuable than the lessons we learn here to build a healthy venture and this is the most precious ‘take home’ for us.” For more information, visit www.metaoptima. com.

Thefts on the rise at university Security working on new approach to reducing crime Cayley Dobie staff reporter

After a sharp increase in thefts at Simon Fraser University’s Burnaby campus, security is developing a new approach to educate students that crime can happen anywhere, even at school. In 2012, the number of general thefts jumped from 183 to 287, and this isn’t a new trend, according to the university’s security report. In 2010, there were only 109 thefts reported on campus. “This is primarily what we call thefts of opportunity, so it’s essentially stuff that’s left unattended,” said Steve MacLean, director of campus security for Simon Fraser University. The most common items stolen, according to MacLean, are iPhones, iPads, tablets, cellphones and laptops. “Things that are real-

ly portable, relatively small and that can easily be picked up,” he said. “People would place (the items) down at a study carrel or a desk, or something like this, and then just leave for a minute to go to the washroom or perhaps run some photocopies, or visit somebody else at another carrel.” And when they’d get back to the desk, the items would be gone, he explained. These “thefts of opportunity” were the main cause of the increase in general thefts on campus in 2012 and while many students report the crimes, they almost never get their stuff back, MacLean said. “Once they’re stolen, they’re stolen,” he added. General thefts had become quite the problem for security on campus, so much so the team developed a strategy to encourage students to be more careful with their stuff. “For the month of April we had the ‘leave it, lose it’ campaign,” he said. The campaign featured

a series of posters put up around campus urging students to be wary of leaving personal items, especially electronics, unattended. One poster read, “This isn’t just a laptop. It’s a target,” another “This isn’t just a phone. It’s a target.” The posters included information on how to report thefts or suspicious activity and warned students that “personal item theft is the most frequent crime at SFU. If you leave it, you could lose it.” “It consisted of some twitter stuff, little cards we submitted to people, and used our student patrollers to engage our community as well, to provide information,” he said. “It was fairly successful.” During the month of April, while the campaign was running, campus thefts dropped 30 per cent compared to April of 2012, MacLean said. “It’s about awareness. People get complacent, people think ‘Well, I’m just going 10 metres down the way’ … and they turn around and their stuff is

gone,” he added. “It’s the same as if you were to leave your … iPhone on a bench in any mall, and then come back and expect to see it there, it’s probably going to be gone.” MacLean said campus security intends to resurrect the campaign sometime this fall, in order to spread the message to new Simon Fraser students. “And then just as reminders as we go down the road, to keep that (message) fresh,” he added.

Magic: Local illusionist takes fresh approach to performance continued from page 9

to copy what others have done, not because he cannot replicate their effects, but because he wants to inspire his audience with a different kind of show. There are no white rabbits in top hats or women being sawn in half on stage. “For me, magic is a symbol for the fact that our dreams and our visions can come true,” he says. “Whatever seems impossible is not necessarily so. I think that’s what magic is really all about. Sometimes it can be inspiring when someone sees something impossible become possible right in front of his eyes. He might think, ‘What I thought was impossible to achieve in my life, my goals, my dreams, maybe they are attainable.’” Learning to perform his many illusions has taken time, but Beckman says he’ll never stop adding to his repertoire and

challenging himself to take his magic to the next level. “It’s like asking if it’s difficult to learn music,” he says of his craft. “You can know how a piano works, but it doesn’t mean you can create music with it.” This summer, he is on tour in Israel, but he’ll be back in Burnaby in the fall to resume his local performance schedule. Sharing his ideas and passion for magic is what Beckman says drives him to keep coming up with fresh challenges for himself and new ways of making his audience view the world. “I love what I do, and if I can bring anything (new) for other people then it’s fantastic,” he says.

Burnaby piper looks for stolen bagpipes Cayley Dobie staff reporter

Junior bagpiper Tyentyen Chen has been without her bagpipes – worth about $2,000 – for almost three weeks, after they were stolen from outside Simon Fraser University’s Cornerstone food court on June 25. Since that night, members of the university’s junior and senior bagpipe bands have been scouring the campus hoping the pipes would turn up. But much to everyone’s dismay, they’ve been unable to track down the missing pipes, said Rob Watt, secretary for the university’s bagpipers. “We’ve exhausted our community net-

work,” he said. The bagpipers are now looking outside the campus for any information on where the stolen pipes might be. Watt said the pipes were taken while Chen – a 17-year-old Burnaby resident – was grabbing a quick bite to eat after practice. The case included the bagpipes, reeds and chanter, which is worth between $300 and $400 on its own. But the bagpipes have been tuned specifically to Chen, so no one else would be able to play them, Watt added. Chen is a member of the junior bagpipers at Simon Fraser and had to pay for her own pipes, which she may have to do once again if the stolen ones aren’t recovered, Watt said.

Burnaby real estate market balancing out Stefania Seccia staff reporter

Burnaby’s current housing market favours neither the seller nor the buyer, but it’s being heralded as balanced by those in the industry. According to the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver, real estate sales and listings are proving to be nearly equal in ratio between the number of homes for sale and the number of those looking to buy a home. Ray Harris, past president of the Burnaby and New Westminster division of the board, said Burnaby’s market is a stronger balanced market, compared to the Lower Mainland as a whole with its sales ratio at 17 per cent. The full market ratio is at 15 per cent. “It’s a great place to live,” said Harris, also a Tri-Cities and Burnaby region Realtor. “It’s the point between the Vancouver market, and the Tri-Cities and Maple Ridge market, and the one we all watch and appreciate.” Sales have also increased slightly from last year, with 311 sales between January and May 2012, compared to 345 in the same time frame this year. “Another interesting factor is, as of May of last year, benchmark pricing was at $878,000,” he said. “Even with the moderate growth, we’re seeing an average of $915,000 this year.” There were 79 detached, 83 attached homes and 149 apartment sales this June, ranging from $365,000 to $899,000 in price. In June last year, there were 83 detached,

73 attached homes and 132 apartments sold. As for listings, there were 582 in total for this June, down by 113 listings compared to June 2012. “It’s not a huge jump, but it is moderate growth,” he said. “I think Burnaby is doing fairly well with the number of listings. In general, it’s pretty upbeat.” Looking forward, Harris said he does not expect much change from now until the fall. “We have every expectation that a balanced market will continue into the fall,” he said. “It’s good for buyers and sellers, which means there’s some consistency in selling.” The real estate board also reported that residential property sales in the Lower Mainland reached 2,642 on the Multiple Listing Service this June. “As the term suggests, a balanced market means that many of the key housing market indicators, such as price, are stable, and conditions therefore don’t tilt in favour of buyers or sellers,” said Sandra Wyant, the real estate board’s president, in a media release. “If you plan to enter the market today, identify your needs, consult your Realtor and work to build a ‘winwin’ scenario with the people on the other side of the sale.” The real estate board represents more than 11,000 Realtors and their companies. In 2012, the value of residential sales transacted through the Multiple Listing Service system, provided by the board, was $18.6 billion. For more information on statistics or real estate, visit

Get grilling with gas: Tips for cooking meat ON COOKING


Chef Dez

n my last column I discussed my five golden rules of grilling on your outdoor gas barbecue. (If you missed that column, I will be more than happy to email it to you. Please contact me at dez@chefdez. com.) To round off this information session about outdoor gas cooking, I want to focus on a few more areas: using a thermometer, using tongs and the ageold question “lid open or closed?” A thermometer is an essential tool for meat cooking of any sort, but

especially on your outdoor grill. It is crucial to make sure that meat is cooked enough but also not cooked too much. We all know that poultry, for example, needs to be cooked thoroughly in order for it to be safe to eat, but when was the last time you had a chicken breast that was overcooked and dry? This happens far too often because people become afraid of serving meat under-done. Spot checking with an instant-read thermometer will help you achieve these perfect results. These devices can be easily purchased from a variety of food and kitchen retailers. Digital ones are the easiest to read and operate, but keep in mind that usually the more you spend, the better the quality. The most important thing to remember is to not insert

the thermometer too many times, as each puncture will result in lost juices. This brings me to my next pointer: use tongs, not a fork, to turn your meat on the grill. Although barbecue forks are a common inclusion with grilling utensil sets, frequent use of this tool will cause more punctures in the meat than necessary and will result in an excess of lost juices. Using tongs (or a flipper as in the situation of flipping a burger) will help to keep the precious juices in the meat. Whenever I do a cooking class that requires the use of an outdoor gas grill, many people are amazed that I do 99 per cent of the cooking with the lid open. When they inquire as to why I am cooking with the lid open, I ask them “why do you close it?” Some say because the manual tells

them too, but most don’t have an answer. For the most part, lid closed cooking should be reserved to larger cuts of meat where you want to cook indirectly (meat not directly above the flames) so your gas grill will perform more like an oven. This will help to cook the meat internally to the degree you want without burning the outside. Mostly for small pieces of meat like chicken

breasts, steaks, pork chops, etc., I will grill with the lid open to achieve better crusting (grill marks) on both sides. The main reason why we grill meat is because of the flavour of the browning of the outer crust. Better crusting of the meat will always happen when raw meat hits the hot grates of the gas grill. In closing, I want to remind you that your outdoor gas grill is an

appliance. It needs regular cleaning and maintenance in order to perform its best for many years. For example, burners should be inspected at least at the beginning of each grilling season. Look for corrosion and carbon buildup that may block the burner gas ports and clear them with a paper clip. Send your food/cooking questions to dez@chefdez. com.

Omnium winner takes first-time Giro German rider wins a final sprint in second gear Tom Berridge sports editor

Giro di Burnaby champion Florenz Knauer of Germany defended his B.C. Superweek omnium title with podium finishes in his last six races, including his first-ever Giro di Burnaby win on Thursday. The 24-year-old German Team Baier Landshut pro outsprinted a pair of Predator Carbon Repair team riders, Cody O’Reilly and Dion Smith, to the finish on the streets of Burnaby Heights in the sixth of nine races in the B.C. Superweek series. No stranger to Superweek, Knauer was last year’s overall omnium winner with five top-five finishes in 2012, including three podiums and a stage win in the Tour de White Rock. This year, Knauer did even better, finishing runner-up at the UBC Grand Prix and third the night before in Gastown before winning in a sprint down Hasting Street in Burnaby on July 11. In White Rock, Knauer finished up with three more podiums, including runner-up in both the hill climb and the criterium, Giro Page 23

In a game where losing was not an option, the Burnaby Lakers did not disappoint. The senior A Lakers shrugged off a shaky first half of the opening period before kicking the offence into high gear en route to a 14-10 victory over the visiting Coquitlam Adanacs at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre last Friday. WithNewWestminster’s surprise 13-12 win over the visting Victoria Shamrocks the night before, the Lakers recognized a series-ending loss to the Adanacs could seriously jeopardize the team’s playoff aspirations. Rookie righthander Tyler Digby got the attack rolling, shaving the deficit to 2-1 with his seventh goal of the season on a clever wrist shot that snuck by the A’s keeper to the near post. Less than a minute later, Jason Jones and Scott Jones, no relation, put home team in the lead for good with goals just two minutes apart. Pete McFetridge rounded out the first-period scoring with an unassisted goal in transition. “I think we played pretty good after 10 minutes. But overall it was a pretty scrambly game,” said Digby, who has 19 points in 11 games to date. “(The game) definitely had playoff implications in getting in or moving up. As a young team, the veterans really pulled us together.” Those veterans, including 24-year-old lefty Dane

The women’s team of Crofts, and Ontario runners Noelle Montcalm, Sarah Wells and Alicia Brown placed second behind the host team in the 4x400 metre relay in front of a sold-out crowd of 30,000 at the 27th annual World

Canada finished more than six seconds behind the winning team and more than three seconds in front of third-place South Africa. “To us, it feels like we won,” Wells, who was a semifinalist in the 400m hurdles at the London Olympics, said in a Team Canada press release. “We knew Russia

was going to be stacked, so we’re really happy. It’s a great way to close the competition.” Earlier, Crofts and Clan alumni Jessica Smith placed seventh and sixth, respectively, in the women’s 800m final. Smith’s time was a season-best 2:00.43. The second-place medal was Canada’s 15th and fifth silver at the Games. SFU wrestler Stacie Anaka also medalled, winning a bronze in the 67-kilogam women’s freestyle

The Burnaby Lakers came away with a silver medal at the B.C. peewee minor box lacrosse provincial championships in Kamloops. The 12-man peewee B Lakers were unbeaten heading into the goldmedal final but hit a wall against a full team from Victoria/Esquimalt following a 9-4 loss. “We didn’t have enough poop on our bench. We ran out of gas,” said Burnaby coach Clarke Dreschner. “We were playing the best of the best from the Island.” Thomas Vela and Luca Zilic led Burnaby in the championship game. Burnaby opened the weekend competition with a 10-1 win over Campbell River. Vela and fair play winner Nathan Chua led the attack with three goals and two assists apiece.

Chua also had a big game for the regular season champs, scoring five times to help knock off Lower Mainland runner-up Delta 11-6 later in the day. On Saturday, Burnaby needed goalie Jackson Murphy-Johnson to be at his best to hold on for a 6-5 win over Shuswap. Burnaby also edged North Shore 8-6 on a fourgoal, seven-point effort from Vela. In the final, Marcus Mocharski scored to shave the deficit to 6-4 against Victoria/Esquimalt. In peewee A1 play, Burnaby had a rough time of it, going down to defeat in all five games. The peewees opened with a 9-6 loss to eventual semifinalist Juan de Fuca and a 7-4 defeat to eventual finalist Ridge Meadows, both played on July 11. On the following Friday, eventual champion New Westminster got by the A1 Lakers by an 8-5 score.

Vigna, who last week lost a three-way playoff at the B.C. junior championships, posted an 11-over-par total 295 on the 6,807-yard, par-70 course after finishing the final round with a four-over 74. The incoming Simon Fraser University freshman edged out the Clan’s Michael Belle of Burnaby by four strokes. Burnaby’s Lucas Gatto and New Westminster’s Matt Steinbach both missed the cut. Former Sport B.C. junior boys’ athlete of the year Adam Svensson charged into a share of top spot with a five-underpar 65 in the final round to tie Charlie Hughes of Langley for the overall lead. Svensson and Hughes both finished the 72-hole competition at 12-under-par. Hughes, a 21-year-old University of Washington graduate, drained a 20-foot putt on the second playoff hole to win his first B.C. amateur title.

before placing third in the series-ending road race won by B.C.’s Zach Bell. In Burnaby, Knauer was one of a seven-rider group that staged a breakaway on the 20th lap and steadily increased its lead to more than a minute on the rest of the field with little more than five kilometres to go. In the final 25 laps, Knauer also picked up four individual race primes (pronounced preems) – a lap sprint within the longer 45-lap race – including half of more than $1,600 raised from the large crowd of onlookers, on the penultimate lap. “In Germany, it’s normal to sprint often,” said Knauer, after accepting the Giro’s pink jersey as the race winner. “I do it often.” What was not normal was how the Bavarian sprinter outpedalled the Atlanta, Georgia team pros down the straightaway.

League provincial championships following a 12-2 win over South Vancouver at the District 6 championships hosted by New Westminster last weekend. Hastings, the 2012 and 2009 Canadian representatives at the Little League World Series, outscored its combined opposition by a 67-5 score in the fivegame district finals at Moody Park. The provincial championships will be hosted by Kerrisdale, beginning Saturday, July 20.

July 29, 1940 – June 30, 2013 Born in Manchester, England, in the early months of the Second World War; died prematurely in Burnaby BC, just shy of his 73rd birthday. Ed was a lifelong cyclist and fitness enthusiast. He died on his beloved bike, in a losing battle with a hit-and-run driver. Ed was a gifted musician, poet, artist, craftsman, and athlete. A wordsmith, wit, and lifelong rebel. He loved to challenge the norm, rally against injustice, root for the underdog, and stand up to bullies of any kind. He was proud of his kids Chelsey, Aaron, and Kira and devoted to his grandkids Kade and Jordyn. He loved a good argument, especially with newspapers (letters to the editor) and his sister Jan. An Irish-style wake will be held at 2:00 pm on Tuesday July 30, 2013 at the Burnaby Rowing Club 6871 Roberts Street, Burnaby. No flowers but please bring songs and stories. You are invited to leave a fond memory or message of condolence at the family’s on-line guest book at
