DO YOU HAVE A SWEET TOOTH FOR POLICE?

◗ LACROSSE HALL

PM gets private tour in the city BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Prime Minister Stephen Harper recently enjoyed a private tour of the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame in New Westminster. Chuck Puchmayr, a governor with the hall of fame’s board of governors, received a call from the prime minister’s office inquiring about the possibility of a private tour of the facility for the prime minister during his visit to Vancouver. Harper had about an hour of downtime, during which he wanted to tour the hall of fame. Puchmayr said the visit was hush-hush, with the prime minister slipping into the facility through a side door after his protective services staff ensured the hall of fame was secure. “We walked around and looked at pictures, chatted,” Puchmayr said. “I was told no politics. We looked at different artifacts. He got to hold an old stick. He was able to hold the Mann Cup, he was able to hold the Minto cup.” Puchmayr showed Harper a picture on the wall and asked if he could identify one of the men in the photo. Former Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau was a member of a university lacrosse team whose photo is in the hall of fame. According to Puchmayr, ◗Harper Page 4

Edible cop shop up for grabs Proceeds from raffle will go towards victim assistance BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER brichter@royalcityrecord.com

The chance to fill up on sugar, admire food art and help out a very worthy cause is back in New Westminster. Fabio and Gina Cornale, owners of Bella Cakes & Pastries in Sapperton, have debuted this year’s gingerbread house to be raffled off for charity – a mock New Westminster Police Service station. The beneficiary of this year’s raffle is

the New Westminster Victim Assistance Association, a non-profit society run out of the police station that offers 24/7 assistance to victims of crime and trauma. “We both wanted to keep the charity local but we also wanted to pick a charity that doesn’t get a lot of recognition,” Fabio said, contrasting victim assistance with the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation, which pulls in millions in donations. “It’s the little guys that sometimes really, really appreciate the money that we raise.” Last year, the Cornales chose the New Westminster Firefighters’ Charitable Society, which stoked a playful, but age-old rivalry. “We have a few customers that are police

Sometimes there are things behind the scenes that people don’t see.” Cheryl Meyers, victim assistance manager, said the support and recognition is greatly appreciated. “We’re very honoured and very appreciative that they would have thought of us. We’re just thrilled,” she said. “The New Westminster Victims Assistance Association could really use the money.”

City lawyer joins rally against legal aid cuts BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER alau@royalcityrecord.com

Cuts to the legal aid system in B.C. were the focus of four rallies held simultaneously on Wednesday afternoon. At 1 p.m. Wednesday, in Vancouver, Victoria, Kamloops and Penticton, lawyers united to decry the cuts to the system, which are forcing lawyers to withdraw duty counsel legal services in January. New Westminster lawyer Paul Janzen attended the Vancouver rally and said legal aid lawyers are frustrated with the system. “Cuts that have taken place since 2002

have been devastating,” said Janzen. “As front-line workers, we see the consequences. It’s frustrating to work in a system where there’s little you can do as a lawyer to help those in the greatest need.” At the start of January, lawyers who work as duty counsel begin an escalating series of service refusals. Duty counsel are lawyers who are called upon to represent people soon after an arrest, often people taken into custody overnight, who cannot afford a lawyer. Duty counsel are scheduled to pull service across B.C. for the first week of January, the first two weeks of February, the first three weeks of March and the

entire month of April. Janzen said he serves approximately four days a month as duty counsel, and it’s also not uncommon for him to be asked to help out on other matters. “You’ll find lawyers in court on another case, and a judge will ask if you can help this person,” said Janzen. “There’s a lot of unpaid pro-bono work that lawyers put in to try and keep this system working.” Janzen, with 20 years of experience as a lawyer, said he was heartened to see approximately 100 people attend the Vancouver rally, and prominent in that group were Crown prosecutors. “You don’t often find lawyers united in

a cause,” said Janzen, “but I think Crown lawyers are united in this cause … because they know how difficult it is when one side is unrepresented or underrepresented … They have to deal with cases where somebody is defending themselves because they can’t afford their own lawyer.” The lawyers who gathered in front of the Vancouver courthouse were wearing their legal robes and blue ribbons. They are asking the provincial government to restore legal aid funding, which has decreased by $50 million in the past 20 years. At the same time, the provincial government is taking in approximately ◗Legal aid Page 10

District to develop anti-homophobia policy BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER alau@royalcityrecord.com

The New Westminster school district will be developing an anti-homophobia policy, said school superintendent John Woudzia. At Tuesday night’s regular school board meeting, outgoing trustee Lori Watt proposed the policy, which is similar to one that neighbouring Burnaby implemented earlier this year. But in Burnaby, a huge controversy erupted over policy 5.45, the Burnaby school district’s attempt to stamp out homophobic bullying in schools. No other education issue in recent memory has raised as much controversy

in Burnaby as this issue, including rallies (both for and against), impassioned speeches at school board meetings and death threats. Angry parents turned out in droves last summer and even formed an ad hoc group against the policy. Woudzia doesn’t expect that to happen in New Westminster. “The anti-homophobia policy is something we’ll look at,” he told The Record Thursday morning. “We already have some policies on this embedded in some of our current policies.” For example, Woudzia cited the district’s current policy on diversity and antidiscrimination as having some language that addresses the anti-homophobia issue. Woudzia said that while he’s followed

the Burnaby situation from afar, he hasn’t had calls from Royal City parents to institute a similar policy. “That’s why we want to take a proactive approach and try to consult with all our stakeholders,” said Woudzia. “I don’t think it’s a big concern in our district because our values have always been centred around empathy, respect, compassion and social responsibility.” One suggestion already under consideration is to make the proposed policy less negative by taking the “anti” in “anti-discrimination” and changing it to something more positive. Watt’s proposed motion calls for the district to “develop a sexual orientation/ gender identity policy including recom-

mendations on curriculum, safety and inclusion appropriate for the schools and community at large.” School trustee James Janzen, who works in Burnaby for the home library service, said the lessons from Burnaby are ones trustees will learn from. “If anything, we saw where it could go wrong,” he said. “That’s why we’ll involve everybody and have as much consultation as possible.” Janzen agreed that there hasn’t been a hue and cry from local parents asking for the implementation of the policy. “I think the reason why this came forward when it did was because this was ◗Policy Page 4

Meyers said any proceeds from the raffle will go to the association’s volunteer resource committee, which supports the volunteers and victims. The volunteer resource committee provides things like children’s games and toys to occupy kids who come in during a crisis, comfortable furniture for victims to rest on while police and volunteers look for a safe place for them to go, training and books for the volunteers, and the all-important juice and granola bars volunteers need to make it through the long nights at the station. “The calls can be horrific,” she said “and these people are out there delivering the services. It’s really hard stuff.” The gingerbread house itself took about

10 hours to complete, and weighs in at about 27 kilograms, Fabio said. “It’s a lot of brickwork. Each brick is done by hand. The back of the building is like a jail cell; it’s got iron bars and all that, and the front is more like a typical police station,” he said. Fabio used a vintage police station still in use in the Eastern United States as a model. Tickets are available in the bakery, one for $1, three for $2 and eight for $5. The draw takes place Dec. 22. The raffle typically brings in $700 to $800 a year. The Victims Assistance Association takes donations year-round. www.twitter.com/BrentRichter

Harper: Quiet visit ◗ continued from page 1

Harper is writing a book about hockey and toured the facility as part of the research for that book, as some hockey players also played lacrosse. The Conservative Party website states that Harper is an aspiring author who is writing a book about the early history of professional hockey. Located in Centennial Community Centre, the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame includes trophies, jerseys, photos and equipment. “He was impressed,” Puchmayr said about the collection. “He left some nice comments in our book.” Puchmayr presented Harper with a pin and made him an honorary inductee to the hall of fame. He also invited the prime minister to open the hall of fame when it opens in the city’s new civic centre in downtown New Westminster in 2013. Puchmayr was unable to photograph the prime minister’s visit but is able to order photographs that were taken by the photographer accompanying Harper during his visit. He said the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame is actively engaged in fundraising and the board of governors supports endeavours that highlight the facility. www.twitter.com/TheresaMcManus

something Lori always wanted to do,” said Janzen. “There just didn’t seem to be a right time until now.” Trustee Casey Cook agreed that being proactive and having lots of consultation will serve the process well. “I’m fully supportive of a policy that focuses on inclusion. … There’s no question we want our schools to be as safe as possible for all our students.” Cook agrees that the lesson to be learned from Burnaby is to take your time and make sure all opinions are heard. “In Burnaby, it was a clash of values. There were a lot of deep, divergent thoughts ... I’m optimistic we will have something in place for the next school year. If we can get everything done by the end of June, I’d be happy.” www.twitter.com/AlfieLau

it would be good for everyone. But if the office is subject to interference from on high, it will become a destructive political tool of the party in power. Much of the recent rise in municipal spending can be attributed to the downloading of costs from higher levels of government and long-deferred infrastructure maintenance that has come home to roost. If the province, through a new auditor general puppet, decides to create

illusory savings by kicking necessary expenditures further down the road – as it did with B.C. Hydro – the end result will be a painful hit for future municipal taxpayers. Keeping an eye on spending is certainly a laudable idea, but there’s no guarantee that this plan will improve the situation – or that it will be worth the cost to create it in the first place. The devil will be in the details, and the devil in this case could be a fearsome beast.

Black Peter is not ‘racist’

Dear Editor:

Re: Room for traditions – but not for racism, Our View, The Record, Nov. 25. I was very disappointed and to some degree insulted by your editorial regarding the Sinterklaas celebrations and the role of Black Peter in this event. Perhaps a bit of research would be helpful before making the categorical claim that blasts an entire country with the “racist” label. Is it really imaginable that an entire country like the multicultural Netherlands would keep a tradition if it was really that offensive? Perhaps a more careful look is warranted. Sinterklaas is celebrated each year in the Netherlands with its full complement of Black Peters. The celebration dates from the 1600s, and the exact origin of Black Peter is not clear. However, in

its current format, there are no racial themes in the role part that Black Peter plays in the Sinterklaas event. To portray a link between the Black Peter character and with the American minstrels is false and demonstrates a lack of knowledge about the Sinterklaas tradition. Just because the exterior appearance is similar, it does not mean it is the same (or at least that is what I was taught in the Nertherlands!). The modern Black Peter is respected and has a valuable role in the Sinterklaas event. Each Black Peter typically has a unique contribution (for example: rooftop logistics expert, I am not joking). They are part of a team, and while Sinterklaas is the boss, there is no master-slave relationship or anything similar. In the Netherlands, when young children ask why Black Peter is black, this will be explained by ◗Tradition Page 7

the soot of the chimneys. Older children will be taught the multiple origins of the tradition, including the attitude of past times and how it has changed for the better. I distinctly remember this “teachable moment” when I was about 10 years old. The Sinterklaas event in New Westminster has been organized by volunteers for 25 years without any problems. To my knowledge it is the only Dutch event in Western Canada, and cancelling it has the same impact for Dutch residents as cancelling Christmas for Canadians. I am incredibly sad that I will not be able to let my son experience this tiny bit of Dutch tradition as a result of a few people who feel they have to be offended by a tradition that they do not have an understanding of.

Lighten up on Christmas

Dear Editor:

As a Bible-believing Christian, I would like at this time to remind my brothers and sisters that we don’t have to make a big deal about Christmas because nowhere in scripture does it indicate the father wanted us or expected us to have a festival for

Christ’s birth. We do not worship at a manger but at the cross. The salient features of Christ’s covenant with us are this: ◗ 1. God elected to choose a son, and the Son went forward. ◗ 2. God elected the being that would become Jesus to be his Son: “Today I have become your father, today you have become my son” and “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool under your feet.” ◗ 3. The Christ was set above his brethren by the anointing of the oil of joy and ◗ 4. God elected to perfect Him through suffering, hence ◗ 5. Jesus was crucified and ◗ 6. resurrected on the third day. The birth story is a footnote to this covenant; that’s why I laugh out loud when persons start debating the source of the heavenly light. It doesn’t even matter if we know exactly when or where He was born. The important part is that He was chosen, just as the Jews were (and remain) chosen; and just as those of us who were not a people were called to be a people. So. Lighten up on Christmas. Only believe. Only love. Merry Christmas. James Witwicki, by email

Poverty: Food bank needs your help ◗ continued from page 6

thanks to the good folks at Shiloh-Sixth Avenue United Church, offers the Hospitality Project, with special programs designed to help lower income families. Basics for Babies supports families with infants by providing them with food, formula and diapers. Kids Picks provides little ones from 18 months to age five with a supplemental bag of healthy, ready-to-eat snacks. I wish every school child in New Westminster had breakfast and a hot lunch as a regular part of the school day. We know that hungry children don’t learn in the same way as their more well-off peers. We also know that when children struggle in school and lack the resources to continue their education they face becoming lowincome citizens and the circle of poverty continues. I am proud that New Democrats are urging a comprehensive poverty reduction strategy, as has

happened in seven other provinces and territories. We must not keep ignoring the issue of poverty in British Columbia, which seems to be the prevailing policy. Surely we must act on First Call’s recent report that shows that B.C. weighs in well above the national child poverty rate. The number of poor children living in families with at least one adult working full-time rose from 38.5 to 48 per cent, up substantially from last year’s report. The rate of poverty for children living in new immigrant households rose to an astounding high of 49.6 per cent. There are now more than 100,000 children living in poverty with the poorest 50 per cent of families receiving less than one-quarter of all the total personal income in B.C. The gap between rich and poor continues to grow and everyday life continues to be a struggle for far too many families. This is the season when the food bank will be

hoping to fill its shelves for the coming year. When I recently spoke to the New Westminster Food Bank coordinator, Mona Forsyth, she said any help you can give will make a real difference for a family in our community. I hope you will contribute in whatever way you can – a cheque or a few extra groceries when you shop. All contributions, no matter how small, are appreciated. The New Westminster Food Bank, the largest in the region, is located at 1111 Sixth Ave. at Shiloh-Sixth Avenue United Church.

Police nab multiple drunk drivers in city

New Westminster police pulled several drunk drivers off the roads Wednesday night, but it didn’t have anything to do with increased enforcement. Police nabbed four drivers around the city between 7 p.m. and 4:30 a.m. The busts happened on Columbia Street, Sixth Avenue, McBride Boulevard and 12th Street. The accused range in age from 21 to 44. Two are from Surrey, one is from Vancouver and one is from New Westminster. AlthoughpolicehadsetupCounterattack roadblocks to check for impaired drivers,

it was patrol officers that made each of the arrests, Sgt. Gary Weishaar said in a press release. Weishaar said drivers should expect to see more roadblocks rotating through the city throughout December and January, and there is no excuse for drinking and driving. “It’s all about road safety for motorists and pedestrians. If you are going to drink, don’t drive. Take a cab, use transit, call a friend or relative; have a plan before you go out,” he said in the release. www.twitter.com/BrentRichter

$100 million or more, through its provincial tax on legal fees. Bentley Doyle, communications director with the Trial Lawyers Association of B.C., said there’s a simple solution to the problem. “If the government would direct the money that it collects on the tax it takes in,” said Doyle, “that’s $100 million annually on the tax right now, if they directed that to legal aid, we wouldn’t be in this problem.” In 2010, a public commission on legal aid was conducted by renowned lawyer

Len Doust. In his report, Doust said: “B.C. is seriously lagging behind other jurisdictions. … We can no longer avoid the fact that we are failing the most disadvantaged members of our community.” According to a press release from the Attorney-General’s office released Thursday, the provincial government has maintained core basic legal aid funding at $66.5 million this year and has done so since 2005.

Personal history: Lynn Duncan, co-founder of local publishing house Vivalogue, knows everyone has a good story that deserves to be told. She specializes in helping people get their stories published, if only for close friends and family.

Preserving people’s life stories New Westminster resident helps people publish their stories and memoirs BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER brichter@royalcityrecord.com

Everyone’s got a story inside. The tricky part is getting it out onto a page where it can last forever. That’s the specialty of Lynn Duncan, a New Westminster resident and co-founder of Vivalogue, a small publishing house that has found a niche in helping people get their story, be it a memoir or fiction, published and into the hands of the right people. “People tend to feel like they want to leave a legacy for their descendants. I think that’s a fairly universal feeling, and yet almost no one does it,” Duncan said. Clients often approach Duncan with an

them commercially, but the people featured in the book were eager to purchase a copy. “They wanted to know what she wrote about them,” Duncan said with a laugh. “She felt like a published author. It looks like a real book. It has an ISBN number. It’s in the library and archives. To her, it’s a real book and she was thrilled.” Amazing stories turn up in unlikely places, Duncan said. Among her favourites she has encountered in publishing have been a man meeting his German spy lover in a concentration camp and arranging for his Jewish fiancée to be spirited out of wartime Croatia, and a Canadian man being the first person in the world to photograph the Soviet satellite Sputnik. And it isn’t just non-fiction that Vivalogue can produce. One woman came to Duncan with a children’s story and illustrations she had made about the exploits of

Sapperton gets festive

Sapperton’s businesses are getting Christmassy. The Sapperton Business Association, along with Wesgroup Properties, is hosting the fifth annual Santa Shops Sapperton event and fourth annual Christmas tree sale next weekend. Things get rolling at the Brewery District Plaza in the 200-block of East Columbia Street, next to Thrifty Foods, at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10.

The event promises carollers, Take Five Café hot chocolate, popcorn and the big man himself, Santa Claus, visiting local businesses to make some headway on his list. All proceeds from the Christmas tree sale go to the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation. The trees, five- to seven-foot grand and noble firs, are sourced from a tree farm in Langley. The event runs until 3 p.m. www.twitter.com/BrentRichter

her children, growing up at the cabin. The woman wanted to give the book to her grandchildren as a Christmas gift, but she didn’t have the technical know-how to do more than physically tape printed text over pictures. When Duncan was done with editing, layout and professional printing, it looked like it could have come from a major publishing firm, complete with a dust jacket. “She was thrilled. She had 25 copies. All her relatives got one for Christmas. She felt really good because it was her creation,” she said. Duncan also edited and designed Coven of the Unholy for local self-published author David E. Burnell and helped him get it on the shelves at New West’s Renaissance Books. Vivalogue is also now venturing into specialty cookbooks based on the unique menus at English country inns and local wilderness resorts.

Duncan said her clients are almost universally satisfied once they see their name in print, often for the first time in their lives. And family members treasure seeing a loved one’s life story organized and made permanent in a book, guaranteeing it won’t become lost to the ages. “There’s a feeling of accomplishment and it should not be taken lightly. It is a big process. It is a sustained effort to produce a book. I think people like the feeling of it. They like the immortality of it. There’s something timeless about books that I think is quite evocative,” she said. “My goal is to find ways to make it manageable for people. If they only want to do 20 pages and one copy, we can do that. If they want 300 pages, we can do that. The idea is to break it down into something acceptable so they don’t get overwhelmed and never do anything,” she said.

Wild Rice opens its doors MOVERS & SHAKERS BRENT RICHTER

fter months of teasing and speculation, Wild Rice has opened its doors at the River Market. The chic Vancouver restaurant opened the New Westminster location – its second – on Nov. 19. “Things are going nicely. The weekends are quite busy. People are coming

around and popping their heads in just to see if it’s true,” said Andrew Wong, Wild Rice owner. “We’ve had a positive response from the few who have ventured forward already,” he said. “It’s a nice indicator.” Wong describes the menu as “modern Chinese cuisine” based on the cooking principles he learned from his grandmother as a child – from the garden to the table and back. Wong said the restaurant will be sourcing its ingredients from local farmers, fishers and ranchers as much as possible.

Green award

New Westminster’s Kruger Products has some new green credentials for the season after being one of 10 businesses to be honoured with a Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation Leadership award Nov. 30. Kruger won the accolades for its innovative biomass gasification system at its New West plant. The system takes wood waste destined for the landfill and uses it in a “clean-burning syngas” system that replaces natural gas in the plant’s steam-generating boilers.

“Since coming online nearly two years ago, the biomass gasification system has already reduced emissions at the plant by 36 per cent, which is equivalent to planting two million trees or removing 3,500 vehicles from the roads,” said Frank van Biesen, Kruger vice-president of technology. “This technology is making real improvements and moving us toward our sustainable development goals.” Do you have an item for Movers & Shakers?

OUR PAST

ARCHIE & DALE MILLER

L

andmark anniversaries are popular occasions on which to note changes over time, and to honour the longevity and service of companies, businesses or institutions that have succeeded over a significant number of years. The following is not meant to be comprehensive, just some examples from our local community. There have been a few significant anniversaries this year, and 2012 already looks like a particularly intriguing year for anniversaries. A well-known legal company, Cassady and Co., was recently honoured by the local Chamber of Commerce for having served its clients and the area since 1911. That was also the year in which a favourite downtown shoe store, Copp’s Shoes, began taking care of New Westminster’s footwear needs. Both these companies have had close ties to downtown New Westminster through the many changes that have occurred there. Both trace back to just a little over a decade after the city’s Great Fire, and have been in operation through wars, a flu epidemic, the introduction of the automobile, a street car system on Columbia St., and a century of change in store names and buildings. Another firm that celebrated a 100-year anniversary this year is Fraser River Pile and Dredge, which has become a highly recognized member of

the industrial life of the Fraser River. Very recently, a piece of this company’s equipment drew much attention on the waterfront as it dredged the area occupied by the Samson V Maritime Museum. As part of its anniversary celebration, we were honoured to write a book on the company’s history, and the end result was well received. You might check with company to see if they still have copies for sale. Next year is shaping up to be a special year with a number of 100 -ear festivities, at least one 125 year event, and even a couple of 150 year celebrations. We already know of a number of home owners planning to mark their houses’ 100-year birthdays and some Royal City schools such as Richard McBride, Herbert Spencer, and Queensborough, opened their initial structures in 1912, including the long gone, but always remembered, Duke of Connaught High School. Queen’s Park traces its beginning to a time 125 years ago when its lands were set aside for public use. Over the ensuing years, the park has evolved to meet the needs of the local citizens for various recreation spaces and amenities. The park remains very busy just as it has been since it was first named on June 14, 1887. The year 1862, a century and a half ago, marked the arrival of the first Presbyterian minister in this city as well as the creation and opening of a venerable public institution – Royal Columbian Hospital, and next year will see many celebratory events for the hospital and local Presbyterian churches. Anniversaries can be fun and they are great motivators to learn a bit more community history.

MP FIGHTS SHARK FIN SOUP New Westminster-Coquitlam MP Fin Donnelly has launched a petition campaign calling on the federal government to ban the import of shark fins to Canada. Donnelly, the federal NDP’s fisheries and oceans critic, believes Canada will show global leadership in fighting the practice of shark finning by implementing an import ban. He notes that sharks are often killed by finning, where their fins are removed and the rest of the shark is thrown back into the sea. Donnelly recently presented a screening of the documentary Sharkwater. Filmmaker Rob Stewart attended the screening at Douglas College. Anyone interested in signing the petition can do so online at Donnelly’s website at www.findonnelly.ca.

Masons celebrate AROUND TOWN

THERESA MCMANUS

M

asons are celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Masonic Union-Solomon Lodge No. 9. The officers of the lodge have invited dignitaries to join together for a formal Sesquicentennial banquet. The event, which is being held on Saturday, Dec. 3, will include messages from Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Premier Christy Clark, the City of New Westminster and Chief Rhonda Larrabee of the Qayqayt First Nation. The anniversary celebration includes a tour of Holy Trinity Cathedral, a service, and refreshments and dinner. Instituted in 1861, the Union-Solomon Lodge No. 9 is closely tied to the beginnings of the City of New Westminster. Many of its founding members are persons of local and historical significance. “The 150th celebration presents a wonderful opportunity to honour our past, to celebrate our continued good works, and reaffirm our strong community ties,” said a press release.

Forget hammers, bricks and wood – the best building supplies are jelly beans, gumdrops and bowl after bowl of snow-white icing. For 27 years, local resident Doreen Hammond – with the help of a few volunteers – has been baking and building as many as 200 gingerbread houses for children and families to decorate each year at St. Alban’s Church. It was a tradition that got started as a fun activity with her grandchildren, explains Hammond’s daughter, Lori-Ann Spencer – but it has continued as a time of friendship and holiday spirit with neighbours. The 2011 gingerbread party held on Saturday may be the last one; Hammond’s husband, who helped her with the entire project each Christmas, passed away earlier this year.

STM Knights’ keys to victory BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

St. Thomas More’s humbling 54-7 loss to Mt. Douglas in the semifinal of the provincial varsity football championship has a positive side to it. “For our boys, it’s a wakeup call,” said STM junior varsity head coach Dave Ruzycki. The JV Knights have the opportunity to erase one of the more painful playoff memories the school has had to endure since Holy Cross knocked off the varsity Knights 49-19 in the 2007 AAA final. STM will face the twotime defending junior champion Mt. Douglas Rams in the final of the AAA JV final at B.C. Place on Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. “The advantage (Mt. Douglas) has is they have one of the biggest teams in the league. They have a big line, some very good receivers, an incredible back and a tall boy at quarterback. They seem to have all the pieces in place,” said Ruzycki. “For us, I don’t believe there is another team in British Columbia that is faster than we are,” Ruzycki added. The JV Knights boast four runners from last year’s provincial track and field team, including 100metre finalist Malcom Lee, 200-m finalist Rashaun Rivers, Jordan Mckenzie and Massimo Pozzolo. The Knights also have a level of leadership rarely seen at the JV level. Five members of the current STM squad, Lee, Kevin Marshall, Jalen Jana, Shane Noel and starting quarterback Chase Malcolm shared in a Canadian age group touch football title at the most recent national championships. When the coaches are not present, the boys lead

Paul vanPeenen/THE RECORD

No mistakes: Getting to the ball first, as seen in earlier STM versus Terry Fox contest, could be a factor in the outcome of Saturday’s B.C. junior varsity football final between the Knights and Mt. Douglas at B.C. Place. the team in practice, a collective quality Ruzycki is immensely proud of. To date, that quality has taken the junior Knights on an unbeaten road to the finals, including a 376 victory over a peaking Centennial team in the driving rain last week. In that game, Jana rushed for three touchdowns, while Malcolm ran in another score on a 65yard play. “The thing we have going for us is, we’re in the (B.C. Place) dome,” said Ruzycki. “We have dry Astroturf – ideal conditions. It will come down to our speed and skill against their size.” STM has the advantage of beating Mt. Douglas 217 in an exhibition matchup

during the preseason back in September. The Knights then had to run a guantlet of solid school programs in Terry Fox, Lord Tweedsmuir, W.J. Mouat and Centennial to win their conference. Mt. Doug had a relatively easier time of it, wrapping up the Western Conference, including a rather routine 34-6 win over conference runnerup Vancouver College in league play. However, Ruzycki is taking nothing for granted. The likable high school instructor has the stigma of being known as B.C. high school football’s Marv Levy. Levy coached the Montreal Allouettes to

two Grey Cups but could not translate that to Super Bowls when he went to Buffalo to coach the Bills. Levy guided the Bills to six conference titles in his 17-year NFL career, including 12 seasons in Buffalo, but lost in the Super Bowl four straight times from 1990 to 1993. Ruzycki shared in a varsity provincial championship as an assistant to K.C. Steele in 2003, the last time the Knights have won a major title. The JVs last won the cup in 2005, while the Grade 8 Knights were provincial winners back in 2007. But Ruzycki said it’s not all about winning for him. If given the opportunity to win a title but not have the respect of his players,

he said he’d trade it in a heartbeat. “I honestly coach for the love of coaching and the relationships with the kids,” he said. Prior to the big game, Ruzycki plans to have a little pre-game levity with the boys, holding a mock gag awards dinner to take some of the pressure off the kids. “The idea is to lighten up, enjoy the moment and then get out and play,” Ruzycki said. The Grade 8 Knights also play on championship Saturday at B.C. Place. The first-year Knights will open the Subway Bowl against the defending two-time champion Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers at 8:30 a.m.

Local gymnasts have nice showings in Europe Burnaby’s Briannah Tsang earned two medals at the Top Gym competition in Charleroi, Belgium Nov. 27. Tsang won a gold medal in her specialty, the vault, with a double-twisting Yurchenko and a Yurchenko one-and-a-half. Tsang’s winning vault score of 14.350 beat out Evguenia Sheigunova of Russia by 0.150 of a point. Omega club teammate Shallon

Olsen finished the vault in third place. Earlier in the weekend, Olsen also won a bronze medal in the all-around held on the Saturday. She also picked up a silver medal on floor exercises. Tsang added a second gold medal in the mixed team competition alongside national teammate Tara Mauchel and Sheigunova and Luliia Chemareva of Russia, beating the runner-up mixed team from Belgium and Sweden by

almost one point. Tsang also finished eighth overall on floor exercises and 11th on the balance beam. Tsang placed 16th in the all-around. B.C. tumblers also brought back medals from the world age group trampoline championships in Birmingham, England. Okanagan’s Emma Tucker earned a silver medal in 13/14 year old girls’ double-mini trampoline on the final day of competi-

tion on Nov. 28. Three Shasta Trampoline Club tumblers also placed in the top 20. Poppy Quinlan finished in 10th place in 17/18 girls’ trampoline. Cameraon Quinlan placed 17th among 15/16 men’s double-mini. Another Shasta member, Benjamin Blais, was 20th in boys’ 13/14 double-mini and 44th in trampoline. – tberridge@burnabynow.com

Subway Bowl award winners Burnaby district football players ran away with a number of the top awards at the Subway Bowl awards banquet last Saturday. Notre Dame regional school’s Michael Herdman was named the B.C. secondary schools’ AAA defensive MVP. Herdman led the league in quarterback sacks with 18 – the only player in double figures. Herdman also had 75 individual tackles this season. St. Thomas More Knights quarterback Mikey Carney was the recipient of a $2,000 Subway scholarship as the academic player of the year. Mt. Douglas Rams running back Terrell Davis picked up the AAA player of the year award, while Lord Tweedsmuir pivot Mike Messenger was selected the offensive MVP. Davis rushed for 1,355 yards this season. Messenger completed 52.8 per cent of his passes for 1,204 yards and 13 touchdowns. Messenger also put up 1,202 yards along the ground. STM linebacker Kyle Madden of New Westminster also earned a scholarship at the banquet, receiving the Big Kahuna $1,000 prize. Carney and Madden were both selected to the 3A provincial all-star team, as well. Carney was selected at quarterback, while Madden was named on defence. Madden tied for second place in overall season defence with 92 tackles. STM offensive lineman Matt Evans and Notre Dame linebacker Ante Litre also made the all-province team. Litre had 68 tackles and one interception on defence. Two-way Knight running back/linebacker Elliot Nelson was selected the Grade 11 player of the year. Nelson led the high school league with a season-high 100 tackles, including six quarterback sacks. Nelson also averaged 74 yards per game this season, rushing for 666 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Hyack makes freestyle final at Canada Cup BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Hyack Swim Club’s Sherry Liu had a couple of strong showings at the Canada Cup swim championships in Etobicoke, Ont. last weekend. Liu placed eighth in the women’s 800-metre freestyle A final, clocking a time of 9:03.06 in the elite field. The 17-year-old high school senior also won the B final in the 400m free in a top-eight time of 4:18.58. Liu finished off the Canada Cup meet with a 22nd overall best in the 200m free. Liu’s preliminary time of 2:04.07 would have placed her sixth best overall in the A final. Burnaby’s Mariya Chekanovych, swimming for the rival Lower Mainland Simon Fraser Aquatic Club, won a pair of races in breaststroke at the Canada Cup. Chekanovych won both

the 50m and 100m breast, setting a new meet record at the shorter distance over the three-day event. Chekanovych raced to victory in the 50m in a time of 32.22, breaking Olympian Annamay Pierse’s 2007 meet record of 32.39. The 17-year-old SFA swimmer just missed setting a second meet record in the 100m breast, edging Okanagan’s Kierra Smith for first place in a photo finish. Chekanovych’s time of 1:09.72 was just shy of Pierse’s record time of 1:09.03 set in 2007. Chekanovych brought home a third medal from the competition, finishing with a bronze in the 200m breast just behind Smith’s silver-medal swim. SFA’s Andrew Poznikoff matched Chekanovych in medals in Toronto. Poznikoff won two silver medals in men’s 50m and 200m breast. He also added a bronze medal at 100m.

Larry Wright/THE RECORD

Puck control: The New Westminster Royals atom A1 hockey team recently took to the ice against the Burnaby Winter Club A3 Bruins.

First goal for nat team rookie Gabriel Ho-Garcia scored his firstever international goal for Canada’s national men’s field hockey team last month. The Simon Fraser University student scored in just his second game with the national senior team at the International Field Hockey Federation Champions Challenge in South Africa on Nov. 27. Ho-Garcia tallied his historic marker on a diving deflection on goal in the 20th minute of an eventual 3-2 loss to Argentina at the competition. At 18 years of age, Ho-Garcia is one of

the youngest players at the Champions Challenge in Johannesburg. Ho-Garcia got his start with the Burnaby Lakers Field Hockey Club under coach John Nolan. Ho-Garcia is one of five local district field hockey products currently on the junior national team roster for selection to the Junior World Cup qualifying round, which is scheduled to begin in September 2012. Joining Ho-Garcia are Burnaby’s Ali Currumbhoy and C.J. Roydhouse and Brenden, Stephan and Matthew Bissett of New Westminster.

Burnaby Winter Club product Ryan NugentHopkins is overachieving even for his standards. The first overall draft pick in this season’s NHL junior entry draft is arguably exceeding even the most fervent fan’s wildest expectations with a two-point night in the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 shootout loss to the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday. Nugent-Hopkins opened the scoring with his 11th goal of the year on a snap shot off a cross-ice pass from Andrew Sutton in the first period. The 18-year-old marvel also drew an assist on linemate Jordan Eberle’s ninth of the year off a secondperiod power play. The points lifted NugentHopkins into a tie for third in overall league scoring with 27 points in his first 25 games, just three points behind leader Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel. The Oilers rookie currently leads his teammates in scoring and in shooting percentage at 21.2 per cent. In November, NugentHopkins scored six goals and added 10 assists, including an NHL record five helpers for 18-year-old players.

Cancer June 21-July 22: The accent lies on work, health, duties, a bit of boredom. Start nothing major before Dec.13. A former duty, chore or employment position might return – do it, grab it if unemployed. VIPs, parents and bosses are watching Sunday/ Monday – do your best, avoid temperamental words Sunday. Your hopes and happiness rise nicely Tuesday to Thursday – life’s worth living! The Sunday to Wednesday period opens doors to friendship, travel, even the kind of romance which, though light, could lead to partnership. Retreat to contemplate, rest and heal Thursday night through Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Start nothing major, relationship nor venture nor project, before Dec.13. Your creative and romantic juices stir this month, you ride a winning streak (yes, you’ll tend to win at cards, etc.) and pleasures abound. An old flame is near or “present.” You might feel you have been tricked and betrayed or mistreated by others, especially the opposite sex, this last decade or two. But turn around: how have you treated those you suspected? When angered or ignored, you can be cruel. “Admitting” this can clear you for future love – which is going to be stronger, longer than past love. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Start nothing, buy nothing, before Dec.13. You might meet former neighbours, or visit family members you haven’t seen in awhile. “Home,” whatever it means to you, is a powerful draw – especially Sunday/Monday. Though you shouldn’t buy or rent a new place (or furniture) a former abode or prospect might be a good thing. But don’t act before 3:30 p.m. Sunday. A gentle, mellow mood arrives Tuesday to Thursday. Despite your lower energy, Sunday to Wednesday offer meaningful romance, or a potent creative urge, especially if you’re in nature. Be ambitious, not forceful, late week.

Find your dream Job.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Start nothing before Dec. 13. New (not old) money matters are stalled; the logjam will break Christmas Day onward. If purchasing holiday presents, keep it simple and refundable, as lemons abound. VIPs, bosses and parents look on you kindly to Dec. 20 – take advantage, approach, visit, do them favours, etc. (But DON’T launch new projects for them. If the boss wants you to begin a new project, diplomatically suggest a mid-December or January launch.) You impress everyone Sunday/Monday, but barriers to action remain: act Sunday eve/night. Chase money Tuesday/Wednesday. Taurus April 20-May 20: The general accent lies on mysteries, sex, subconscious urges, finances, investments and debt, and potential lifestyle changes. You’re lucky in these, though forward motion has been lacking since August. By late December delays will end – a legal, travel, educational, intellectual or international “element” will be the go-forward key. You might soon agree to wed a sexual partner. Think deeply before plunging. Make NO commitments, nor any new starts, before Dec.13. Lie low, rest Sunday/ Monday. Your energy rises Tuesday through Thursday. Romance lies below, wants to emerge! Gemini May 21-June 20: Relationships are foremost. Your popularity and joie de vivre rise Sunday/Monday. But avoid arguments or hasty driving to mid-afternoon Sunday. Turn from a hardto-convince person Monday. Retreat, rest Tuesday to Thursday. Sunday to Wednesday give a lucky boost to governmental, administrative and charity projects, and might also attract you to someone because he/ she represents a rest, comfort, safety. But at what cost (to him/her!)? Your energy soars Thursday night to Saturday: contain temper. Until mid-2012, you’re quick to laugh, rage. Start nothing important before Dec.13.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Start nothing new before Dec.13, especially in communications, travel and record-keeping. A former friend appears, or you travel to revisit a familiar place. Your home life is blessed; you could, if seeking, find a domicile where affection and beauty will prevail, especially Sunday to Wednesday. Let this be a place connected to the past. (These days also bring tantalizing, but secret or private, attractions. Be honest, moral.) Relationships irk you to mid-afternoon Sunday, then they turn successful. But if you offer little (Monday) you get little. Wisdom, Friday/Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Remember, start nothing big and new before Dec.13. In particular, buy nothing – you are drawn straight to lemons now. Tackle chores and health concerns Sunday (much better after 3:30 p.m. PST) and Monday. Relationships offer both opposition and concord Tuesday to Thursday. Concord is more likely – and far more beneficial – as this entire week offers friendship and good conversation – with a romantic tinge. A big, lucky “concord” looms on the horizon, late month into next June. Finances, sexual urges and deep health matters arise Friday (some difficulties) and Saturday (climaxes?). Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Though your energy, charisma and clout are high, use them to tackle ongoing projects or to revive past ones – start nothing new before Dec.13. You easily impress others, gain their favour and get your way. If you’re single and have been hankering for some special company, contact that ex or old flame – AFTER 3:30 p.m. PST Sunday (or, less successfully, Monday, or, for more “grown up” results, after 9 p.m. Friday, into Saturday). Higher-ups are temperamental and impatient all week (until next July!) but you win them over, might even land a raise Sunday to Wednesday.

Dec. 4 - 10, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Avoid new starts before Dec.13. Get plenty of rest, eat and drink sensibly. Retreat from the hustle-bustle, avoid competition. Tackle past-due obligations, especially those involving charity, institutions, the government, or head office(s). This is an excellent “clean-up and clear-out” phase to prepare you for powerful action later this month. Pay attention to home-related concerns Sunday/ Monday. (Careful with tools, confrontations Sunday.) Romance, notional or real, visits Tuesday to Thursday – in fact the thrill of attraction fills the entire Sunday to Thursday period. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Start no new projects nor relationships before Dec.13. This is a happy, optimistic and forward-looking month, but you’d do better to look to the past this week. A former flirtatious friend might arrive, or the door could fling open to a goal that was once just “wishful thinking.” Dreams do come true! Careful with speech, driving Sunday – after 3:30 p.m. PST, all’s well. Tuesday to Thursday accents your home, security, family and real estate. A verboten romance could attract you. Actually, romance simmers all week, then emerges Friday (careful!) and Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Be ambitious, show your skills to higher-ups, study business and career topics, but don’t start new projects or relationships before Dec.13. Money hits an irksome snag Sunday, but smoothes out late afternoon into Monday. Talk, travel, and casual meetings fill Tuesday to Thursday – and could turn enmity into an amorous bond. You have a choice now to next July – you can love, or hate. The former is more likely this week, from Sunday to Thursday. Collapse into the comforts of home or still beauties of nature Friday/Saturday. Don’t let stress cause a fight Friday. timstephens@shaw.ca
