Tribunal clears police

Woman claimed she was discriminated against on the basis of a mental disability BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER email@example.com
The B.C. Human Rights Tribunal has dismissed a case against the New Westminster Police Service. A ruling released Tuesday says the tribunal will not go forward with the case of a local unnamed woman who claimed New Westminster police discriminated against her on the basis of mental disability, a violation of the B.C. Human Rights Code. Tribunal member Tonie Beharrell wrote in the tribunal’s decision that there was “no reasonable prospect the complaint will succeed based on all the information available.” The woman had a long and troubled history with New Westminster police as well as other provincial government and regulatory bodies. She alleged police treated her differently than they would anyone else by doing such things as visiting her at her apartment when she had not called them, not returning her phone calls or not taking her complaints seriously, disclosing to others that she suffered from mental illness, and not opening criminal investigations at her request. One such incident stemmed ◗Complaint Page 8

‘I am the guy to do it ...’ BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
If anyone thinks Wayne Wright has run out of ideas or passion, think again. Wright, who has served as New Westminster’s mayor since 2002, is seeking a fourth term in the Nov. 19 civic election. He’s proud of the accomplishments the city has made during his time at city hall, but looks forward to the challenges that lie ahead. “I think there is always time for change, and this isn’t the time.

wobbly, the wheel before wasn’t really working. This wheel is rolling,” he said. “You don’t want to stop the momentum.” Wright firmly believes he’s the best candidate to lead the City of New Westminster. “I want to leave this city better off than when I came in. I want to leave them with projects on the go and projects that are finished, and with pride,” he said. “I want to be able to walk out of this thing having my grandchildren and their grandchildren looking at the City of New Westminster and saying, ‘my grandpa Wayne had a very positive

When you’ve got that feeling you’ve got to go for it.” Wright dismisses suggestions that’s he wants to be a “caretaker” and stay on the job to only see current projects through to their completion. “Anyone that thinks Wayne Wright doesn’t have more ideas and more energy and more ability, I think they’d be puffing a lot of smoke,” he said. “You can talk – it’s easy to

Student walkout ‘not school sanctioned’ Unclear whether 150 students were protesting conditions at aging school building or lack of progress in teachers’ bargaining BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER email@example.com
Approximately 150 New Westminster high school students walked out of class on Tuesday afternoon to protest deteriorating conditions at their aging school, but just how meaningful their message was is debatable. Outgoing school trustee Brent Atkinson said he wasn’t sure what the students were trying to achieve. “I don’t know if they were protesting whether a new school should be built sooner or if the teachers should be settling their contract (dispute),” said Atkinson. “It seemed to fizzle very quickly. “I would suggest that if you have a school of 2,200 students and you get 150 people who walk out, ... that’s not very successful. ... It didn’t seem to have a focus.” New Westminster superintendent John

I support their right to make a statement ... but they (the students) have to realize there may be consequences for skipping class.” Ewen agreed with the students that many people are frustrated with how slow the replacement of a new high school is. “We’re all frustrated with the slow pace, no doubt about it,” said Ewen, who added that students can always talk to their local trustees, himself included, if they want more information on what’s happening on the capital project. Grant Osborne, head of the New Westminster Teachers’ Union, said he also attended the protest because he had a scheduled meeting with Balanuik and other senior administrators. “I never really got what the message was,” said Osborne. “It was a peaceful protest and students have the right to freedom of assembly, but we were never contacted beforehand.” - with files from Postmedia Network Inc.

In 2011, the city expanded parking meters to Sundays and directed Sunday parking revenues toward a grant program to help licensed, non-profit child care facilities to make upgrades or to expand. “We are not in a social program. We have a business to run a city,” he told The Record during a recent interview. “If private child care/daycare places need money then that is the free enterprise. If the city is sponsoring a daycare centre and it has the ability to do that, well sure let’s go there, let’s do it. But let’s not do it on the backs of businesses.”

Environmental Partners has released the results of a candidate survey that addresses sustainability themed topics. In partnership with the Tenth to the Fraser blog, the questionnaire for New Westminster mayor and council candidates is intended to help the electorate make informed decisions before heading to the polls. Questions tackled a variety of topics from transportation to incinerators to tree bylaws. “We’re very pleased all mayoral candidates and the majority of council candidates took the time to answer our questionnaire,” said Matthew Laird, a director with New Westminster Environmental Partners. “We’ve heard some candidates found the questions challenging – we’re glad to hear that. These are tough issues that don’t have simple soundbite answers. Ensuring we have a council that grasps the complexity and depth
of these issues is vital to a sustainable and prosperous New Westminster.” The full questionnaire and answers sorted by candidate can be found on the New Westminster The City Environmental Partners’ website at http://nwep. ca/election-2011candidate-survey/.

Strategy working Jonathan Cote wants to continue building a city that cares about its residents. Cote, who has served two terms on city council, said the city hasn’t been afraid to tackle difficult social and environmental issues. He said city council has adopted plans such as an affordable housing strategy, childcare strategy, a
Green Action Plan, a community energy and emissions plan and a homelessness action strategy. Cote said the city has hired a full-time social planner and an environmental coordinator to help implement these plans. During the past three years, he said the city has seen a 45 per cent reduction of the street homeless population, a net increase of 130 licensed child care spaces and an increase in the solid waste diversion rate from 31 per cent in 2009 to 59 per cent in 2010.

talk. There are some people here who may be saying those things; they’ve done a lot of talking, but let’s see what they’ve done. When I came in to be the mayor I had a history of being successful and doing things for the city.” Wright, who was named New Westminster’s Citizen of the Year in 2000, spearheaded the World’s Tallest Tin Soldier project that saw New Westminster get into the Guinness Book of Records and the Festival of Trees that raised funds for the Simon Fraser Society for Community Living. Wright wanted to bring that same entrepreneurial spirit to city hall and believes that’s just what he’s done. He said four cities wanted TransLink to relocate its head office to their communities, but his efforts helped bring them to town. In addition to bringing new tax dollars into the city, Wright said development also brings in new residents who support local businesses. “You need people. If you don’t have people it’s hard to draw them in,” he said. “There’s a critical mass you need to have.” While some people may say too much development is taking place in the city, Wright says the new projects are helping make up for taxes the city lost when three mills closed in the city. “That’s why we have put our energies to making what we think is a better place,” he said. “We are winning awards. We are taking old and making it new, yet we are continuing to keep the community whole.” Wright said most of the development that’s taken place in New Westminster
has seen vacant or derelict sites being replaced with new-and-improved projects that will help the city’s tax base. He cites the recent openings of the Brewery District on the former Labatt Brewery site and the Lowe’s store on the former Western Forest Products site as examples. “These people don’t come here without getting support. A lot of them were injected from myself,” he said. “That’s just the way I am. I think the proof is in the pudding.” Wright describes himself as the kind of guy who likes to make things happen. “You can’t just sit back. If we had sat back, the Labatts thing may just be sitting there,” he said. “That’s not what we did. We were aggressive. And I am proud to have that, and so is the staff. The TransLink police moving there is a big deal.” Wright said he’s been very lucky to have accomplished many of the goals he’s set for himself as mayor. He’s learned that the biggest difference between municipal work and the private sector is the amount of time it takes to get things done because of the processes involved and need for public consultation and consensus at city council. “A good example is the Pier Park. I thought I could buy that piece of property the first day I was in here because I thought it was a good idea – and I tried,” he said. “The council of the day took me to task and said you can’t make a decision like that. Well here we are, eight years later or whatever and we do buy it. We buy it almost for the same price.” As for future efforts as mayor, Wright said the Trapp Block on Columbia

body helped. The police and everybody helped. That place, now you have pride to go there.” Wright said it’s nonsense to suggest the city is “building 400-square foot condominiums for people to stay overnight and work in Vancouver”, as one of his challengers had suggested. “Why do you think we are building the pier park? Why do you think we are building the civic centre? Why do you think we work with the developers for the sizes and things we want, which are all meeting the needs of the people who are coming here? I have never heard of a 400-square foot square foot place in our city – there may be a couple of bachelor suites, but in its entirety, I’ll clarify that is a stupid statement. Give your head a shake and take a look around.” Wright said the city has created new employment opportunities by attracting companies like Lowe’s and Thrifty’s Foods and has supported Royal Columbian Hospital, which employs 3,500 people. “We are creating a civic centre that people can entertain themselves at. We’ve got 10 theatres coming in so they can entertain themselves at. We’ve got a new River Market, we’ve got Fraser River Discovery Centre,” he said. “We have an entire city here that people can come. On the other hand, one of the things we are going to do is encourage more new businesses. More
businesses come because there are more people there so they can actually do more shopping here. I doubt that anybody is not going to play in the city we are creating.” Wright is also proud of some of the accomplishments the city has made in social issues, including helping to get homeless people off the streets and into housing, and approving demolition of the Woodlands Centre Block tower as former residents had requested. He also notes that the city has made strides in its amenities, such as building a new outdoor pool in Moody Park, improving facilities such as the Mercer Stadium track, and making local youths’ 15-year dream of a youth centre a reality. “The city is a much better off place to live, work and play than it’s ever been,” he said. “You just have to go downtown to see it. There are people walking everywhere. We have coffee shops blooming everyplace, uptown, downtown. With amenities like the riverfront park and the civic centre coming, Wright is confident that new opportunities will come to New Westminster. “When we want to shop and have our entertainment we can do as much here,” he said. “Of course we are going to be bringing lots of people in to visit us because of those amenities too.” www.twitter.com/ TheresaMcManus

Yes, the riot gave Vancouver a because they were marginalized women. bad reputation, and a lot of businesses
and insurance companies are out millions of dollars. But it still appears there is no limit to the police resources that can be used on the riot cases. Thousands of hours of videotape have been viewed, the premier wants the court proceedings to be broadcast. Again, contrast that to the women’s inquiry where the government wouldn’t even pitch in to provide legal funds for parties to prepare presentations to the commission. And then there’s media coverage. We, the media, salivate over every mugshot
of every drunken hooligan that we can get our mitts on. Oh, and did we mention that those mugshots land on front pages far more often than any of the coverage of the missing women’s commission? The comparison between resources available for missing “marginal” women and resources available for punishing hockey hooligans may seem extreme. But isn’t it a strikingly sad reflection on what we appear to value in our society?
What message are we sending to girls? THE LIVELY CITY JULIE MACLELLAN
t was such a mixed message it actually made me laugh out loud. But it wasn’t the laughter that stems from amusement or hilarity. More the kind that’s combined with a snort and followed by a heavy sigh. I was watching TV, one of those new “women-focused” networks that we now have thanks to our recent decision to switch to digital television. My attention was captured by a wonderful commercial for Plan Canada’s Because I Am A Girl campaign. The commercial features Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau telling us all about the power of girls to change the world if only we give them the help they need to do so. “Girls are the answer, and so are you,” she tells us. I’ve gotta admit, I’m a sucker for such things. The ad gave me the warm fuzzies and the kind of “you-go-girl” feeling that I’m sure the commercial’s creators were hoping I’d have. All well and good. Until the next commercial came on. It was, I believe, for conditioner that’s meant to take the frizz out of my hair and make it
look salon-sleek so that I don’t need to leave home with – gasp! – dull, lifeless, wispy locks. Then there was another one, for some magical product that’s designed to make my skin look years younger and keep away those dastardly wrinkles and age spots. Next up? Makeup, sold with the assurances that I too can look as good as Andie MacDowell, because heaven forbid I should start looking my actual age. And so on. And so on. And so on. Pretty soon the inspiring, you-go-girl sort of feeling was replaced by the sad realization that, as a society, we don’t value girls and women much at all. Correction: We do value women. Just so long as they’re young and thin with perfect skin and glossy hair. (Or, if not young, at least the kind of “woman of a certain age” who fights off every tiny sign of encroaching age with an arsenal of expensive chemical products.) Yes, it seems, even in 2011, it still isn’t good enough to be ourselves. It isn’t good enough to be strong. To be intelligent. To be compassionate. To be adventurous. To be creative. To sing and dance and paint and draw and run and jump and play. To be fighters and lovers and teachers and friends. To make each other laugh and dry each others’ tears. To bring to the table patience ◗Women Page 7
City needs to enact new bylaw Dear Editor:
Earlier this year at the United Boulevard Extension meetings, attendees heartily voiced the opinion that the New Westminster municipality should do something about the noise resulting from trains passing through the Sapperton and McBryde areas to the railway yards in New Westminster. The time has now come when something can and should be done: Citizens need to insist that the new mayor and New Westminster council members, when appointed, must introduce a bylaw similar to that passed by the District of Coquitlam Bylaw No. 1421 of 1984. The bylaw refers to the Railway Act being Chapter R-2 of the Revised Statutes of Canada, 1970, as amended, Section 248. After several “whereases,” the Coquitlam bylaw 1421 prohibits the “sounding of train whistles/hoot-
ing.” The proviso is that: ◗ There shall be flashing red lights ◗ There shall be safety booms at crossings. Edwin F. Grobler, New Westminster
Turnstiles just don’t make sense
Myth vs. Math on transit turnstiles: ◗ MYTH: Turnstiles stop fare evasion. ◗ MATH: If fare evasion is only 2.5 per cent, why spend $171 million to recover $6.4 million?

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Turnstiles aren’t worth it ◗ continued from page 6
◗ MYTH: Turnstiles are the magic solution. ◗ MATH: For the same reason we still use QWERTY to type on computers. When typewriters were invented, women were too fast and the typewriter keys jammed. So men mixed up the letters QWERTY to slow women down, but women still succeeded. Turnstiles slow people down, make transit worse, pose a real danger to children and people with physical limitations, damage bikes and strollers, but proprietary turnstile corporations who make and install them get rich! Greg Pettipas, New Westminster
Winning the bedbug war
I was very pleased to learn from The Record of Coun. Jaimie McEvoy’s call for a bedbug task force. We have seen similar developments to the east led by Ontario and Manitoba. The needs of B.C.’s citizens is just as great here and building along with the bedbug population throughout the province. Coun. McEvoy is pointing the way to provide a co-ordinated effort to “spread the word, not the bedbug.” There is an abundance of incorrect and misleading information out there. A prod-
uct can claim to “kill bedbugs” but will not rid your home of the pests. DIY efforts temporarily push the bedbug infestation out of the living area to neighbouring units only to return to the original host environment at a later date. Government web information has been incorrect and misleading. B.C. Housing recently dropped a bedbug poster from their website – it had a posts that a bedbug is one inch long and seems to be confused with kissing bugs. These errors demonstrate the need for qualified input on the task force and a commitment to provide current information. Vancouver Coastal Health information is more current, and it is the only site that has a picture of a bedbug. There are glaring omissions on all sites. For example, not everyone has an allergic reaction. Additionally, a wash water temperature of 40C/104F is not lethal to the eggs of bedbugs. Education and early detection are the cornerstones to control bedbugs. Until we return to the state of awareness our grandarents and their parents had, bedbugs will continue to spread and increase in numbers. A public information initiative that is accurate and current, like a bedbug task force, could be instrumental in helping to control bedbug infestations in theLower Mainland and this province.

Women: What message are we sending? ◗ continued from page 6
and kindness and respect and wisdom. To be, in a nutshell, ourselves. Those selves, it seems, are only welcome if we’re willing to gloss them up and polish them into younger, thinner, more socalled flawless versions of the real thing. So what exactly is the message we’re sending our girls? Something like: “Because I am a girl, I must fall into one narrowly defined, artificial standard of beauty, or I will spend my whole life buying products to help me alleviate the dissatisfaction associated with being imperfect.” Sigh. Don’t get me wrong, I’m no paragon of virtue when it comes to eschewing societal stereotypes. Despite my low-maintenance approach to all things resembling fashion and beauty (those who know me will be familiar with my jeans, T-shirts, makeup-free
face and naturally frizzy hair), I’m just as guilty as anyone else of sighing at cellulite, lamenting over the size of my hips and racing to the drug store for more Clairol No. 110 (Natural Light Auburn) to cover my increasingly abundant grey. (And seriously, zits at 41? Honestly. You’d think crow’s feet would be sufficient.) But I look around at all the women I know, and the ones I admire aren’t necessarily the ones who’ve managed to “preserve” themselves and who look, in that dreadful phrase, “so good for their age.” They’re the ones who, in all sorts of ways, show how wonderful it is to grow older. They’re the mothers who are raising the next generation of children – girls and boys – to be strong, compassionate, adventurous, creative people. They’re the managers who lead teams of employees with the kind of wis-
dom and grace that can only be acquired with decades of experience. They’re the adventurers who hike and paddle and cycle and backpack off to parts unknown. They’re the artists who dare to dream, to create, to bare their souls and chart their own paths every single day. They’re not all thin. They don’t all have glossy hair. And, yes, a whole lot of them have wrinkles and age spots. But you know what? They’re all amazing. And beautiful. Remember what Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau said? Girls are the answer, and so are we. I believe that. I truly, honestly, genuinely do. But I’ll feel less hypocritical about saying that on the day I’m able to gracefully let my hair grow grey and quit thinking about the size of my hips. I’m working on it. Julie MacLellan is the assistant editor and arts editor of The Record and the Burnaby NOW.

Shooting victim in stable condition BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
New Westminster police say the man shot in Halloween night’s targeted shooting in Victoria Hill is in stable condition as he remains in a medically induced coma. While they have not released an ID, police say the man is 29 years old and he is known to police. Few other details have emerged. “The motive and any connection to recent gang shootings is not yet clear, however, the way the shooting was orchestrated clearly points to a targeted hit,” said Sgt. Gary Weishaar in a press release. Police were called to the Carlyle highrise at 280 Ross Dr. around 10:15 p.m. Monday night after a report of shots fired.
On the scene they found a man in the driver’s seat of a late model BMW, suffering from multiple gunshot sounds to his neck, face and upper body. New Westminster Police Service is currently leading the investigation with assistance from the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit. Weishaar said Tuesday that, while disconcerting, New Westminster police do not anticipate the city will become a new battleground for organized crime gangs to settle scores. The investigation is ongoing, and police are asking anyone with information about the shooting to call the New Westminster police tip line at 604-529-2430, or remain anonymous and call CrimeStoppers at 1800-222-8477.
Complaint: Tribunal dismisses case ◗ continued from page 1
from the police service’s decision to not open a criminal investigation when the woman complained to police that the chlorine levels in the Canada Games Pool were too high. The decision notes that the woman filed six complaints with the Office of Police Complaints Commissioner, all of which were dismissed by the commissioner on the grounds that further investigation would not find evidence of a public trust default. The woman has also filed numerous complaints with her doctor, the public library, and the College of Physicians and Surgeons, some of which resulted in visits from the police after individuals called to say they found the woman threatening. “I accept that the complainant is highly suspicious of, and highly dissatisfied with,
her treatment by the (New Westminster police.) However, I find that there is no reasonable prospect that the complainant will succeed in establishing that the conduct at issue was discriminatory,” Beharrell wrote in her decision In order to find that the woman’s rights had been violated, the tribunal would have to conclude that police perceived her as having a mental disability, that police treated her adversely and that her mental disability caused the adverse treatment. Beharrell wrote that none of those was the case. Instead, Beharrell noted that police “must make assessments based on the information they are given and all of the surrounding circumstances.” New Westminster Police Service has declined to comment on the tribunal’s decision. www.twitter.com/BrentRichter

Home sweet home: Joanne Leblanc, owner of Sonse Home Design on Sixth Street, says her business serves a growing demographic of young couples and families moving to New Westminster.
Designing a new future in business
BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
When the industry you work in begins to shrink and move away, you can try to change with it, or follow it wherever it goes, or you can be like Joanne Leblanc and use your industry skills in a new business entirely. Leblanc spent 15 years decorating the film sets for movie and TV shoots around the Lower Mainland. Some of the more notable ones were filmed locally including Megan Fox’s and Amanda Seyfried’s bedrooms in the 2009 thriller Jennifer’s Body, family film Flicka and supernatural drama The Secret Circle. But with film studios shifting more of their work to Ontario, which offers producers meatier tax breaks, Leblanc began to think about starting her own home decor business.
“I found myself basically unemployed for three or four months of every year,” Leblanc said. Then, when Western Shaver Centre closed up after decades at 544 Sixth St., Leblanc sprang into action and got to work on opening Sonse Home Design. “I waited for two years for this corner to open up,” she said. “I came out of London Drugs one day and saw the previous owner putting up newspaper in the windows, and I literally sprinted home to find out who the property manager was.” Leblanc, you see, is quite the booster for uptown New Westminster. In her opinion, far too much attention has been paid to downtown, the Quay and Sapperton, while uptown has gone through a decline. But, always astute to changing trends, Leblanc said that is coming to an end and the area seems to be entering something of a renaissance, judging by the number
of new businesses opening up to cater to the same demographic she is catering to – young couples and families that have moved to New West to buy their first home or condo. Families, like her own who moved from Vancouver five years ago, like the area because of cheaper home prices, proximity to parks and schools and access to transportation. And the new demographic calling New West home is bringing keen taste with it, Leblanc said. Leblanc said there seems to a bit of “keeping up with the Joneses on Columbia” as many of her customers live in the nearby condos on Seventh Avenue. “A lot of them say, ‘I’m in an older building. I better start making my place look good,’” she said. Her store is now stocked, end to end, with everything from tabletop ornaments, #303 - 1210 Quayside

wall decorations and furniture to lighting and pillows. “The price point starts at 55 cents and goes up to $2,000. There’s something here for everyone,” she said. “I don’t want anyone to come in and say, ‘Oh, I can’t shop here.’” Her best selling item right now is a Union Jack doormat. In addition to selling home decor items, Leblanc channels her film set perfectionism and offers staging, redecorating consultation, room planning and holiday decorating services. And you might be surprised what else is coming back into high demand and who wants to buy it. Every day, Leblanc said she sees men coming in to look at wallpaper samples. “It’s so funny – men and their wallpaper,” she said. “It’s the craziest thing.” www.twitter.com/BrentRichter #201 - 1210 Quayside

Desperately seeking Scrooge THE LIVELY CITY JULIE MACLELLAN
o you have a bit of Ebenezer Scrooge in your heart? The Vagabond Players are seeking a Scrooge for their Christmas production, Mrs. Bob Cratchit’s Wild Christmas Binge. The play will be on at the Bernie Legge Theatre from Dec. 15 to Jan. 7. Scrooge, of course, is described as a “cranky old man who learns his ways.” (And, FYI, the character does not need to sing.) If you would like to audition, you’re asked to contact the director, Katherine Bethell, at 604716-1449 or kbethell@shaw. ca. For more about the Vagabond Players, check out their website at www. vagabondplayers.ca.
Poetry lovers, don’t forget Poetic Justice at the
Heritage Grill on Sunday. The poetry reading session is set to run Nov. 6 from 3 to 5 p.m. in the back room at the restaurant, 447 Columbia St. Featured poets this week are Christopher Levenson and Don Fox. Levenson was born in London, England and emigrated to Canada in 1968, teaching creative writing, English and comparative literature at Carleton University in Ottawa. His first book of poetry was published in 1959, followed by 10 more volumes – the most recent being Local Time (2006). He was also cofounder and editor of Arc magazine, and he also co-founded the Harbinger Poets imprint of Carleton University Press. Fox – who’s billed as “the Prince of Dorkness” – was born in Orillia, Ont., the hometown of Stephen Leacock, whom Fox has always admired for his wit. “Don enjoys going to the ridiculous and coming full circle back to the ridiculous as he entertains his audience,” a press release says.
There will also be an appearance by a “mystery poet,” The Urban Cowgirl, as well as an open mike session. Curious what it’s all about? Drop in and check it out.
Calling all of you who love to sing ... Do you like to sing in a choir but don’t want the commitment?

Rehearsals are Thursday evenings at the church, 529 Queens Ave., from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. All are welcome. Call 604-5221606 for more details.

In fact, pop a pair into someone’s stocking and they will love you in December – and all over again in April.” Tickets start at $22 for seniors, $25 for adults and are now on sale at the Massey Theatre box office.

Teen sings to help kids’ wishes come true Beneﬁt concert at Massey Theatre helps Make a Wish B.C. BY JULIE MACLELLAN REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Anjela Gerardo could have just had a 16th birthday party. Instead, she decided to try something different: organizing and performing in a benefit concert to help children in need. Anjela will be taking to the stage at Massey Theatre – along with a host of other musical friends and colleagues – for These Dreams, a benefit for the Make a Wish Foundation of B.C. and Yukon, on Nov. 6. Anjela, who’s in Grade 11 at Burnaby Central Secondary School, offers up a simple explanation for her decision to host a benefit concert. “I just like helping people,” she says. “When people need me, I help them.” The soft-spoken teen with the big smile has been singing her whole life - her mom, Jocelyn, says she has always sung and danced at family gatherings and birthday parties, ever since she was tiny. Anjela has taken part in some singing competitions, including winning the Edmonds city fair talent title in 2009. But she admits, shyly, that she doesn’t talk a lot about her singing life.
“Only my closest friends know that I sing,” she says. She’s passionate about singing, she says, because it offers so many rewards. “It takes a lot off my mind. It makes me concentrate on one thing and not a whole bunch of others,” she explains, then adds with a grin, “and it’s fun.” Anjela is no stranger to the idea of singing for a cause. She held a benefit concert in 2007 to help abandoned children in the Philippines, and another in 2009 as a fundraiser for her church, Lakeview Multicultural United. This year’s desire to help the Make a Wish Foundation was motivated by her particular desire to reach out to children - helping kids is her passion, and she has her sights set on becoming a pediatric nurse in the future. She and her mom, Jocelyn, brainstormed some ideas, and Anjela thought of Make a Wish, which had in the past helped out a close family friend, Andrew Lamigo. Andrew, who’s now 13, got his wish – a family trip to Disney World – when he was four years old. Andrew, incidentally, is now doing well. He’s living with a rare condition called hemolytic anemia, for which he must receive monthly transfusions, but he’s in Grade 8 and living an active life. His story inspired Anjela, as did another story she heard about Make a Wish, when some youngsters with
a dream to be bakers had a chance to take part in the reality TV show Cake Boss. “It helps sick kids reach their dreams,” Anjela explains. She and her mom are hoping that the concert will raise at least $6,000 – enough to grant one wish for a B.C. child. To help reach that goal, they’ve worked with Anjela’s vocal coach, Kikz de Leon, to assemble a big cast of performers. Anjela will be joined on stage by 1Voice, DSOUNDMYX, J.J. Cepeda, Andrea Legaspi, Jeremiah Salvacion, KMZ Singers, Jessel Alejo, Wyngail Ramos, Nina Ruiz, Jay Esplana, George Ontal, Rosario Strings and Jojo Alpuerto. There will be a variety of music offered, some Filipino but mostly in English, and mostly upbeat. “There’s going to be a lot of dancing,” Anjela says with a smile. The show will feature familyfriendly performances that Jocelyn says should appeal to all ages. And they’re hoping to pack the theatre so that they can raise as much money as possible for Make a Wish. These Dreams is on Nov. 6. It’s set to start at 6:30 p.m. at the Massey Theatre, 735 Eighth Ave. Tickets are $15 and available at the door. For tickets or information, call Jocelyn at 778-869-5352, or see www.masseytheatre.com. For more about Make a Wish, see www.makeawishbc.ca.

The art of music
Music meets art on the walls of the Plaskett Gallery this month. A new exhibition, Compositions on a Musical Theme 2, opens at the gallery on Nov. 3 and runs until Jan. 3. The exhibition features work by Langley resident Melissa H. Clark, a continuation of a 2005 exhibition at the Heritage House in Langley. Her inspiration for the pieces comes from her many years studying music – in fact, Clark still studies piano at the Langley Community Music School. “My work examines music through visual means,” Clark explains in a press release. “By concentrating on line and spatial relationships, I evoke the movement that would be necessary to play and hear music. Through multiple exposures, the complexity of lines fades in and out of the picture plane, as would the dynamics of musical composition.” Clark notes that the work has wider meaning as well. “These works are painted music and a metaphor for my life, to illustrate the multitude of changes I encounter as a teacher and artist,” she said. “Becoming one with the instrument

colour and metaphorically the knowledge incorporated as a teacher,” she says. “The strings of the sculpture also reflect my past and future work, whereby I concentrate on the motion of music through drawings and paintings.” The Plaskett Gallery is at Massey Theatre, 735 Eighth Ave. It’s accessible by appointment or during events at the theatre.

Local talent follows the yellow brick road
New Westminster talent will be in the spotlight when the Footlight Theatre Company presents The Wizard of Oz. The production is on at the Michael J. Fox Theatre in Burnaby from Nov. 4 to 19. The Royal City’s own Ben Wardle takes a lead role in the production, appearing as the Scarecrow alongside Theo Marx’s Tin Man and Chris Adams’ Cowardly Lion. Starring as Dorothy is 12-year-old Michelle Creber, known to local audiences from her appearance in the title role of Annie at Theatre Under the Stars in 2009. “It’s an unusual decision to cast someone so young in the role of Dorothy,” notes a press release about the show. “It’s normally given to someone in their teens or even early 20s, but the director and design team are going for an overall concept that emphasizes the child’s dream/nightmare aspect of the story, with everything larger than life and a bit (or a lot) bizarre/scary. “The idea is that casting an honest-togoodness little girl – who also happens to be a powerhouse actor-singer – as Dorothy will increase the visual and emotional impact.” Also starring are Kim Page as the Wicked Witch of the West, Bree Greig as Glinda the Good Witch, and Jason Logan as the Wizard himself. The production features a cast of 70plus adults, teens and children, including professional and amateur performers from around the region. Also in the spotlight as a featured dancer and flying monkey is Claire Wardle, Ben’s sister, who’ll be familiar to local audiences from her multiple appearances with the Royal City Musical Theatre. She has also danced professionally with Banff Festival Dance, Ballet Kelowna and Les Grands

Sapperton in the spotlight OUR PAST
ARCHIE & DALE MILLER
he Sapperton area of New Westminster is undergoing many changes as residential units, businesses, office space and open areas are appearing on the landscape. Recently a new grocery store (Thrifty Foods), bank (TD Canada Trust), and coffee shop (Take Five Café) have welcomed people to the new Brewery District. They all now become part of the neighbourhood’s history. Sapperton’s story has many places of interest, many of which once were or still are vital to the city. Such places include the Royal Columbian
Hospital, the brewery, the distillery, the Penitentiary, mills, and its major park area, Hume Park. Other prominent points might be the schools, churches and cemeteries. There are of course many other pieces in the history of Sapperton and a couple of years ago, three long-time residents got together to chat about local history and to share personal research that each was carrying out. Carol McMeekin had been gathering information about her town and was looking for the hard-to-find details that add so much to a community. Wayne Wou, who has family connections to the corner store that was situated at Keary Street at East Columbia, was not only tracking down his own family story but links to the community as well. And Archie Miller, also with long family connections, had been following up his own memories
while working through various historical materials gathered by his father. During 2011, this Memories of Sapperton project has presented stories from its research on a walking tour across the neighbourhood, introduced Sapperton people on a cemetery tour, presented a slide show of the neighbourhood’s history at the historical society, displayed images of interest at Sapperton Day and is now planning another presentation. The area around Braid and East Columbia streets features many sites of local historical interest including Shaw Brothers’ woodworking, Schibicky’s fries, burgers, and ice cream, Barclay’s service station, Millar’s Drugs, the interurban and streetcar station, and a small Chinese laundry nearby. A block away from this corner was a hardware store,
known to many as “Black Cat” hardware because of the “Cat’s Paw” shoe polish sign on its wall. Another block along East Columbia included Sapperton Motors, with the revered Spot’s Café next door. In the area of Keary Street was a wonderful collection of corner stores, cafés, interesting houses, a couple of community halls, and a fire hall. And farther along East Columbia, right on the corner of Brunette was a curiously shaped triangular building with stores and apartments. All of this is only a sample of the large amount that has been discovered during this history project. If you’d like to find out more about this part of the city, then come to the New Westminster Historical Society presentation on Wednesday, Nov. 16, starting at 7:30 p.m. Carol, Wayne and Archie will have some great stories.

Soccer South nips North for BNW banner BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR email@example.com
A goal by Matthew Shannik midway through the opening half gave the Burnaby South Rebels the district title-winning goal over Burnaby North in high school boys’ soccer. Shannik, who was dangerous around the net all game long, tallied the lone goal of the game in the 20th minute off a clever through ball from centre midfielder Jayson Santiago to give South a 1-0 victory over North at Cariboo Oval on Wednesday. The win gave South the championship district bannner and the No. 1 Burnaby/New Westminster seeding heading into next week’s zone playdowns with the North Shore. North will also contest the zones as the No. 2 seed. Both teams will play their provincial qualifiers at Sutherland Turf in North Vancouver after school on Monday. Minutes after Shannik’s go-ahead tally, South keeper Alex Marroquin made what turned out to be the save of the game at the other end of the pitch. The play started with a clearing volley from centre field that was crossed into the box by Tyron Stojanov. Incredibly, Alberto Ghisi first-timed the hard cross directly on goal, only to be stopped by Marroquin, who then gobbled up the enusing rebound that glanced off the far post and slowly bounced near

Semiﬁnaled: Burnaby North, in white, upset Burnaby/New Westminster senior boys’ regular season champion Burnaby Central in the playoff semiﬁnals, seen here, but had a more difﬁcult time in the championship banner game at Cariboo Oval, losing a 1-0 decision to the Burnaby South Rebels on Wednesday. the goal line. Ghisi also delivered a hard shot in the second half that Marroquin saved. The Grade 11 Rebel keeper also had to be Johnny-on-the-spot on a solid strike from A.J. Cosco later in the second half. “I saw the ball and just tried to react and I got a piece of it,” said Marroquin of the big first-half save after the game. “We (South) kept the ball away from them and didn’t give them
many shots. We didn’t give them anything.” South enjoyed a majority of the possession in the opening half, but play became more even after the go-ahead goal. Shannik was in on a bushelful of opportunities at the other end for the Rebels, but South had to settle for the one-game win. Perhaps South’s best chance in the second half ocurred early in the stanza
when Shannik sent Tyler Leonard in alone and the senior midfielder skied a rocket over the North crossbar. For North, Anthony Sulentic and Marco Rota also had chances in the first half of play, but both their strikes also just missed the mark. The Record player of the game was Santiago, who had his foot on the ball throughout the match. But North, 2-0 upset
winners over regular season champion Burnaby Central in the district semifinals earlier in the week, still has a shot at a provincial berth, said head Laurent Scaligine. “We’ll see,” said Scaligine. “We’ll take it one game at a time.” Next week, the Rebels will play North Shore champions Argyle, with the winner earning the No. 1 zone berth into the provincial championships.
The losing school will get the opportunity of earning the second zone berth against the winner of the No. 2 teams. North must play the winner of either Sentinel or West Vancouver, which was played today (after Record deadlines). The B.C. high school AAA boys’ soccer championships will be played at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex-West Nov. 24 to 26.
Perfect Panthers ﬁnish with win Jr. keeper signs on BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org
The Moscrop Panthers dispatched Burnaby Central to finish the district boys’ high school volleyball season undefeated. The Panthers, ranked 10th in the province in the latest high school poll, defeated Central in straight sets in their final league game of the season on Wednesday. Moscrop cruised to a 25-10 win in the opening set behind the strong serving of Brandon Chin, who had four aces in the game. In the second set, the Panthers substituted freely and came away with a 25-22 win. In the final set, Zachary Or served up three straight aces early in the set, but Central made a game of it, taking the lead on an early Jason Peng kill down the line before surrendering the lead late in the game.
Central’s Robbie Wright gave the hosts its biggest lead at 13-9 on a big block at the net, but Moscrop rallied to tie behind a huge set winner from junior J.J. Cross. Cross, a Team B.C. prospect, then tied it up 19-19 with an emphatic service ace. Kevin Apodaca gave the Panthers the lead, which they held for a 25-21 win. “We didn’t play our best, but you should have seen us on the weekend,” said Moscrop assistant coach Ed Chin of the team’s second straight tournament win at J.N. Burnett. The Panthers also won an earlier tournament hosted by Volleyball B.C. at the Harry Jerome Sports Centre in Burnaby. With the win, Moscrop will host the playoff final next week. In a preliminary game, the Central senior girls swept a three-set matchup against Moscrop in a battle of 6-1
teams. Boasting three junior players in its starting six, Central defeated the Panther girls 25-21, 25-14, 25-21. “The girls just played amazing,” said senior captain Kelsi Boroevich. “We had a really tough practice yesterday and we were prepared mentally. We were really ready to play the game.” The win moved Central into second place behind league champion Burnaby North, while the previous first-place Panthers tumbled into fourth spot. North took over top spot following a 3-1 win over Burnaby Mountain in their final game of the season also played on Wednesday. In October, Burnaby North defeated Central 3-1 in league play. Burnaby South finished in third place. Playdowns for Lower Mainland seeding begin next week in Burnaby.
New Westminster junior A Salmonbellies goalie Frankie Scigliano signed a one-year pro contract with the National Lacrosse League Calgary Roughnecks Oct. 31. Scigliano, at 6-4, 290pounds, was taken in the second round, 18th overall, by the Roughnecks in the NLL entry draft. Scigliano led the B.C. junior A league for the past two seasons, finishing 2011 with an 84.65 save average. He was one of five prospects signed by Calgary, including the Roughnecks’ top pick, Travis Cornwall, who was
picked up seventh overall in the draft. Elsewhere in Alberta, Western Lacrosse Association rookie of the year keeper Brodie MacDonald, picked up in a trade with Philadelphia along with former New West junior Alex Turner, signed with the Edmonton Rush. Edmonton’s rookie of the year in 2010 and top defender last season also signed a three-year deal with the Rush. Brett Mydske, 23, led all Rush defenders with eight goals and tied teammate Bill Greer with 12 total points.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Aries March 21 - April 19: Plunge into depths, mysteries, research, intimacy, commitment, change and large ﬁnances. Since 2008 you have been undergoing many changes in your career and community status (e.g., marital status). These changes will continue to 2023 – 2011 and half of 2012 urge you to capitalize on these changes, especially financially, through investments, separation awards, a more proﬁtable lifestyle, etc. Think about this, and act on it, Sunday and Tuesday through Thursday. Don’t act on a whim or dream (or fear) Monday, and contain your temper Friday noon. Much hard work until next July! Taurus April 20-May 20: Crucial, exciting, beneﬁcial relationships face you. If single, you might meet a life partner in the next few weeks. It begins on a sensual/ sexual note. Married folk meet opportunities to rise ﬁnancially, through partnership, inheritance, travel, higher education or law. All of you face new horizons, new joys. Thursday begins eight months of romantic adventure for singles. If married, avoid being heavyhanded with children. Rest, lie low Sunday to Tuesday. (Success with “head ofﬁce” or government Tuesday p.m.) Your energy and charisma surge Wednesday/ Thursday: start things! Gemini May 21-June 20: For the next eight months, step lightly at home. If you must change residence before July 3, 2012, do so now, before Thursday eve. If you must move after that, make it a rental, a shortterm one. On the good side, you’ll spend the whole eight months being happy and hopeful about your domestic prospects. It’s very likely you’ll start sifting through your friends, deciding which ones are really keepers, and which aren’t. Social joys visit you Sunday to Tuesday. Retreat, rest and contemplate Wednesday to Friday noon. After this, you’re in charge, energized – tackle some big tasks!

Cancer June 21-July 22: The weeks ahead feature romance, creative surges, speculation, risk, winning, joys from children, pleasure and beauty. At times, you might have to decide between a pleasurable intimacy and a social joy. (The latter is probably more fortunate in the long run.) Be ambitious Sunday to Tuesday. Make sure that ﬁnancial or sexual “ﬂag” is really inspiration, not deception (Sunday/Monday). Your hopes, popularity and social side burst forth Wednesday/Thursday – love could reach a climax. Retreat to rest and contemplate, Friday noon through the weekend. Now to July, a ﬂurry of activity! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The main emphasis lies on home, family, security, property, garden, retirement and similar themes. But your main luck resides in career, ambition, and goals outside the home, so these two might conﬂict, especially Wednesday to Friday. (Do you take a chance, or remain secure?) Legal, learning, travel, religious and love concerns arrive Sunday to Tuesday. You might feel a deep, strange pull toward someone – but perhaps you don’t trust him/her – or your feelings. Be careful. This puzzle will “dissolve” by next February. Social joys Friday/Saturday. Money’s coming – beware spending! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: This week and next ﬁll with errands, calls, paperwork, details, reports, quick and casual meetings. But this light, busy “surface” turns deeper, as another thread in your psyche begins to raise questions about – and prospects of – lifestyle changes, investments and debts, sexual bonding and commitment, and a big, general change of life. These are slated now to next July. Research these, ask questions, read, Google, study the options, especially Sunday to Tuesday. (In all this, there is at least one fantasy or red herring that you need to see, and dismiss.) Wisdom, love midweek.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: This week and next accent sensuality, sex, possessions, earning and spending. Enjoy life! Relationships loom large Sunday to Tuesday. You might dream of a fantastic romantic life with someone – whether there is truth in this or not, will show Tuesday night. Sexual bonding, investments, large ﬁnances, secrets and commitments arise midweek. You could take a big step! Wisdom and gentle love appear Friday night, Saturday. In all this potential development of a relationship, realize that Thursday night begins eight months during which you might be at a disadvantage with a partner. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness march forth strongly. Start things, see and be seen, tackle projects/tasks which intimidated you previously. (Start only short-term things, as late November brings a slow-down.) Sunday to Tuesday brings chores, co-worker relations, and success in these (for eight months). Take care with one deceptive – rose-garden-type – promise or prospect that involves your career and home: be realistic about such a combination right now. Relationships excite and beneﬁt you Wednesday/Thursday, not Friday. Secrets, intimacy, and ﬁnances lure Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Continue to take a restful stance. Lie low, contemplate, plan.Your energy will return late November (one day before Mercury retrogrades, so you’ll be handling major things from the past, perhaps a relationship). Meanwhile, fulﬁll old obligations, deal with government agencies, be spiritual and charitable. Romantic notions bring a smile Sunday-Tuesday: don’t expect much “solid reality.” Tackle chores Wednesday onward. Friday/ Saturday bring relationships, opportunities and competition (avoid the last). Now to July, your career is ﬁlled with creative ideas – and some temper.

Nov. 6 - 12, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: This week and next bring optimism, social delights, popularity, entertainment, and above all, a wishing, an urge to dream and envision your future – which will in turn bring, promote, the best future. Don’t think small – look out a decade, two decades. Home, domestic interests, property, security, retirement – these ﬁll Sunday to Tuesday. The next eight months will bring either a) good fortune in these, or b) legal ﬁghts over them. DON’T trigger legal ﬁghts before July next year. The good fortune might include a home abroad. Romance soars Wednesday/Thursday: respond, seek. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Be ambitious, kow-tow to authority, seek more responsibility, upgrade your community status, this week and next. But avoid starting big new projects (other than house-buying) as a slow-down begins late month. Sunday to Tuesday features communications, emails, calls, talk, short trips, errands, casual acquaintances and siblings. These will grow important for the eight months ahead, as you start digging into the private, hidden or “undiscussed” side of life. You’ll be holding private talks, perhaps with a lover. Domestic, retirement and real estate luck visit you Wednesday/Thursday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: This week and next ﬁll with mellow thoughts, wisdom and compassionate love. You can forgive others. Open your eyes, too, to foreign climes, higher learning, religious/philosophical truths, and your own “cultural hungers.” This wise, loving time is a good launching pad for the next eight months, which will feature intensity in relationships, both in love and money. You could surprise yourself by your possessiveness toward someone attractive. (Someone very “male” if you’re female; someone assertive, vivacious, if you’re male.) Big, maybe important communication Wednesday/Thursday. email@example.com
