Do parents need a ‘bill of rights’? BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

nhope@royalcityrecord.com

The board of education will discuss a recently proposed parents’ “bill of rights” at its next meeting, but the debate about the topic has already started between two trustees who routinely butt heads on issues. Trustee Casey Cook developed the bill

next meeting on Tuesday. “I find the adversarial nature of the bill of rights Casey proposed to be kind of disturbing – parents get this, parents get that – but there’s no sense that parents have any responsibility,” Ewen said. “On BCCPAC, it talks about (how) you have a right and a responsibility. I like it; it’s British Columbian. In Casey’s, it’s all: parents get, parents get, parents get. In BCCPAC, it’s collaborative.” The bill of rights isn’t adverCook. The trustee added that

he brought the bill forward in the “spirit of collaboration” and didn’t anticipate the response to be so “vitriolic.” “I didn’t expect it would be accepted verbatim, of course not, it was put on the table to start the discussion,” Cook said, adding that it didn’t matter that he found the bill on an American website. “If it’s good, it’s good regardless of where it comes from,” he said. Cook thought by developing a bill of rights, the board could be clear about what it stood for, he said. “People have been treated with disrespect at a board level for decades,” Cook said. “All I was trying to do was put an end to that.”

CITY WANTS MORE INPUT FROM BUSINESSES ON FUTURE OF PATTULLO BRIDGE

Expand it, replace it, or move it? BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

New Westminster city council wants input from local businesses about the Pattullo Bridge replacement project. The New Westminster Chamber of Commerce and the Surrey Board of Trade recently joined forces to hold a meeting about the Pattullo Bridge and the need for a comprehensive transportation strategy to support future growth. The May 24 event featured a panel discussion including representatives of the cities of New Westminster and Surrey, and TransLink. After attending the two-hour dialogue, Coun. Chuck Puchmayr felt the city needed to engage the local business community in a discussion about the Pattullo Bridge. He’d like to know what businesses think about TransLink’s proposal to build a six-lane replacement bridge from New Westminster to Surrey. “Jim Lowrie was really the only one there feeding the interests of the city,” he said about New Westminster’s engineering director. “I thought the chamber would have a New Westminster representation on it, putting a lens on it, reflecting New Westminster’s interests.” A business representative who was on the panel seemed supportive of the six-lane bridge and North Fraser Perimeter Road, which left Puchmayr wondering whether that was something supported by New Westminster businesses. “When it’s rush-hour gridlock, cars are literally not moving,” he said. “You may as well close your store. Local people are not going to get up and go shopping. You have to look at that.” TransLink is currently proposing to build a new six-lane Pattullo Bridge near the

existing bridge alignment. The City of New Westminster has sought input about a wide range of options as part of consultation taking place through its master transportation planning process. Coun. Bill Harper agrees that it is “really valuable” to get input from local businesses, as he didn’t feel he got a true representation of their thoughts at the event. Coun. Betty McIntosh said the Surrey Board of Trade seemed to have some “very strong and fixed opinions” on the need for a new six-lane bridge. On Monday, council supported Puchmayr’s motion to engage local businesses in a dialogue about the Pattullo Bridge. Bart Slotman, vice-president of the Uptown Property Group that owns Westminster Centre and other uptown properties, was among the local business representatives that attended the May 24 dialogue. “A lot of business people in the region are pushing for increased capacity. Surrey is definitely pushing for more capacity,” he said. “If you look at New Westminster, I think we are already overwhelmed with traffic.” Slotman said statistics indicate that 70 per cent of the traffic using the Pattullo Bridge isn’t coming from or going to New Westminster. “From a business perspective, we need to remain connected,” he said. “Just to get rid of the bridge is very ideological – I can see why it would be attractive to some people.” Instead of eliminating the crossing altogether, Slotman would like to see commuter traffic redirected to more appropriate routes such as the freeway or the Alex Fraser Bridge, or construction of a new

With TransLink estimating the cost of building a new six-lane Pattullo Bridge estimated to cost $1 billion, Slotman believes it would be wiser to spend $200,000 to upgrade the existing Pattullo Bridge for local traffic and cyclists and pedestrians, and spend $800,000 on a crossing in a more suitable location for commuters. “Building more capacity is not going to be more beneficial to New Westminster,” Slotman said. “We should use that money and reroute the traffic.” Slotman said he’d like to see commuter traffic redirected to the most appropriate

locations so customers are able to drive to local businesses during rush hour. “The biggest thing is to create an opportunity for commuter traffic to bypass New Westminster,” said Slotman, a member of the Uptown Business Association. “It does not want to go to New Westminster.” Slotman noted that Lowrie asked people to imagine there was a clean slate and no bridge crossed from Surrey to New Westminster, and then consider if this would be the location selected to build a bridge at this time. “The answer is absolutely not. So why would we do it now?” Slotman said.

Residents get creative at public forum

June 6 forum on Pattullo Bridge encourages residents to ‘think out of the box’ BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Two Royal City residents want to engage the community in discussion about creative uses for the Pattullo Bridge before it’s too late. Daniel Fontaine and Keith MacKenzie are hosting a community forum on June 6 that will explore the future of the 1937 bridge. While there has been a lot of discussion about plans for a new Pattullo Bridge, they feel the dialogue about the existing structure has been lacking, and they’re inviting community members to explore

potential uses for the bridge – whether it’s condos, a cyclist and pedestrian crossing, a bungee jumping station or a restaurant. Fontaine believes there are a lot of potential uses for the bridge if it’s repurposed or adapted, but it would require harnessing the creativity of the private sector. He said people should think out of the box about the bridge’s potential and view it as prime real estate in Greater Vancouver. “It is something that could really generate a lot of cool ideas,” he said. “It doesn’t necessary require a lot of public dollars.” Before the public could offer input about the fate of the Port Mann Bridge, Fontaine said a decision was made to tear it down when the new crossing was complete. He doesn’t want to see a similar decision made around the Pattullo Bridge without giving the public a chance to provide input.

“Let’s do it early on,” Fontaine said. “It’s a good piece of infrastructure that could potentially be saved.” Fontaine said the only talk to date has been about demolishing the Pattullo Bridge or refurbishing it so it can accommodate vehicles, but he believes creative alternatives exist for the crossing. TransLink has had public consultation meetings about its plans for a six-lane replacement Pattullo Bridge, and the City of New Westminster has sought input about the Pattullo as part of its master transportation planning exercise, Fontaine believes its important to consider the potential of the existing crossing. “If you’ve crossed the aging bridge at any point over the last decade, you’ve probably asked yourself what is going to happen with this vital piece of public

infrastructure in the future,” said a press release about the forum. “It’s a good question that has taken on added importance now that TransLink and the City of New Westminster have started their public consultation about its future.” The community forum will take place on Wednesday June 6 from 7 to 9 p.m. in La Perla Ballroom, which is on the upper floor of the River Market. Gordon Price and Anthony Perl from Simon Fraser University, and Jerry Behl, a transportation engineer from the City of New Westminster, attend. The panel presentations will be followed by a townhall style discussion. For more information email PattulloBridge@gmail.com or visit the event’s Facebook page under Pattullo Bridge Community Forum.

Teacher ban gets support from B.C. parents

Working teachers shouldn’t serve as trustees at same time BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

nhope@royalcityrecord.com

A “landslide” majority of parents attending the B.C. Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils annual meeting held last weekend supported the bid to ban teachers from serving as school trustees, which was put forward by New Westminster parents The confederation passed New Westminster district parent advisory council’s resolution to follow Ontario and Alberta’s lead in banning school board employees, including teachers, from serving as school trustees to avoid a genuine or

perceived conflict of interest. “It was the largest margin out of all the resolutions,” said New Westminster district parent advisory council past-president Paul Johansen, who attended the meeting held in Coquitlam. There was “no discussion” on the vote, and it was called right away, Johansen said. He estimates that only about 10 people voted against the teacher-ban motion. “I couldn’t believe it,” he said. The confederation didn’t have the exact vote count at press time but in an email said it was passed by a “large majority.” Currently, in British Columbia, teachers are only banned from running in school districts where they work. New Westminster has three teachers – trustees Michael Ewen, Jonina Campbell and David Phelan – serving on the seven-member board.

Math teacher not in class for rest of school year BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

nhope@royalcityrecord.com

The teacher at the centre of the ongoing math saga at New Westminster Secondary School won’t be teaching for the remainder of the school year. New Westminster Ron Unger said he learned yesterday that his son would get a new Grade 9 math teacher. “I just know what my son came home and told me yesterday is that, as of yesterday, they have a new math teacher for the rest of the semester,” said Unger. “Typical 15-year-old boy, he tells me the basics.” Unger wrote an opinion piece that was published in the May 25 edition of The Record, on his son’s experience with a math teacher who came under fire recently when two parents began talking to the media about what they believed was an unusually high failure rate in their children’s class. Unger said he didn’t have a “vendetta” for the teacher. “She needed help teaching, but it’s an administrative failure, I think, more than anything,” he said. “I see it as an adminis-

trative failure that they didn’t address the problem with the teaching before, but the solution with the teacher is to work with them to get their teaching level up.” He criticized the district’s handling of the math situation, saying that it was their job to ensure that problems are addressed through re-training and working with the union. “To me it’s like any other business, no employee group is going to work flawlessly all the time, so management’s responsibility is to work with the employees as a group and create a good, strong teams and deal with effectiveness by retraining or what ever, and that hasn’t been happening. It’s more ‘let’s pretend there’s not a problem’ and so that’s frustrating, and then not communicate with stakeholders, which in this case is parents.” The Record contacted the school district superintendent and assistant-superintendent for more information and to confirm whether she would be teaching at all at the high school, but did not receive a response by press time. The district has refused to discuss personnel matters, citing legal constraints.

Daycare wants to add spaces

A local daycare is hoping to add 20 before- and after-school childcare spaces to its offerings. Fraser Montessori Daycare currently provides 50 licensed group child care spaces for children at 1408 Fifth Ave. It’s seeking an amendment to its zoning to allow for the addition of 20 additional spots for school-aged children. A public hearing about the rezoning application will take place on Monday, June 18.

Housing symposium set for June 21

The City of New Westminster is teaming up with Canada Mortgage

and Housing to offer a symposium on affordable housing. The symposium, which is taking place on June 21 at Century House, is designed to provide an opportunity for information sharing, networking and potential partnerships.

“The symposium will raise awareness about the opportunities for affordable housing in New Westminster and facilitate networking and potential partnerships,” said a staff report. By Theresa McManus, staff reporter

The teacher ban vote was controversial in New Westminster, with some parents complaining about the district parent council’s handling of the vote, which was done through email with just a day to weigh in. Despite the controversies, the resolution went forth to the confederation. The other New Westminster DPACforwarded resolutions that were passed at the confederation’s meeting include a call for a return to “targeted” special needs funding, which would take special needs funds from the district’s general operating budget and put it back towards special needs students; a reporting process on student suspensions and expulsions; and a mandatory question period during public meetings with responses recorded in school board minutes. Parent councils also passed the New

in

Westminster Secondary School’s parent advisory council’s resolution for more latitude on how gaming grants funds can be spent. The only New West resolution that failed was a motion for the Ministry of Education to develop a “universal” provincewide complaint process. Instead, the confederation wants to develop its own complaint process to be presented at next year’s meeting. New Westminster had the most resolutions of any other parent council in the province at the meeting. The confederation lobbies the government on behalf of parents and represents a membership of more than 1,000 parent and district advisory councils from every school district in the province.

But, in the spirit of gratitude, let’s not forget the Liberals even let us average Joes decide when it would be held by hosting an online vote. The choice was either the second or the third Monday of the month: the third so that it would line up with other provincical family days and President’s Day in the U.S., and the second because, presumably, holiday spots would be less crowded than on the holiday-packed third Monday.

Oh, the irony.

Flaherty finds deep well of stupidity IN MY OPINION

J

MATTHEW CLAXTON

im Flaherty opened his mouth last week and a gusher of stupidity came out. If we could burn stupid like oil, we could run every car in Canada for a month on his latest remarks. Flaherty is apparently laying the groundwork for revamping EI, to force workers to take, essentially, the first job that comes along. “I was brought up in a certain way,” Flaherty said. “There is no bad job. The only bad job is not having a job. So I drove a taxi. You know, I refereed hockey. You do what you have to do to make a living.” There’s so much idiocy here, we’re going to have to take it point by point. “There is no bad job.” Do you want to tell that to the families of the dead and brain damaged workers who held jobs at Langley’s A-1 Mushroom farm and composting operation? There are a lot of horrible jobs in this country purely because the bosses ignore health and safety rules. People are killed every year in farming, forestry, and mining, in warehouses, by truck crashes, and by equipment mal-

functions. Yet people take these jobs, because they have few alternatives. Then fear of being fired usually keeps them from ratting out their bosses to the authorities. Forget danger, we all know there are jobs that are degrading and humiliating, where the boss is a jerk, where you are forced to work unpaid overtime, where your paycheque arrives late, where your tips are confiscated by management. This goes on every day in Canada. “The only bad job is not having a job.” So the day Flaherty leaves his Ottawa office, we can expect to see him sitting by the Home Depot offering to perform day labour, or picking crops for $10 an hour, 12 hours a day? No? You think he’ll put on his suit and get himself a job in an office? Even though that might take a bit longer and be a better use of his talents as a selfimportant blowhard? It does not make sense for a medical secretary, or a trained welder, or a dentist, or a shipping clerk, to take a menial job right away just because it’s on offer. Those jobs tend to tire people out and leave them with little energy to search for a better position. Our skills shortages are not going to be cured by more doctors taking jobs as cab drivers or skilled technicians working as janitors.

Big thumbs up for Hyack

Dear Editor:

I would just like to say kudos to everyone who was involved in organizing this year’s Hyack Parade and street entertainment. There was more to see and do, there were food trucks, and the music was fantastic. It didn’t hurt that the weather was absolutely fabulous to boot, but I guess the organizers can’t take credit for that. Sixth Street was closed for three or four blocks, allowing for more fun things such as the fire truck, with the firemen there to answer any questions about it. I can only hope that it continues to grow and other organizations take part in the future. Thank you for a terrific day!

Let’s be clear about proposal

Re: Residents press city to reject proposal, The Record, May 30. I would like to correct the perception that residents have been appearing in delegations before city council for weeks. We have in fact been appearing before council since May of 2011 and have made seven appearances since March of this year. The proposed OCP change is a huge threat to our neighbourhood of single family homes – one of the last pockets of affordable family homes in the metro Vancouver area. We are not prepared to see our historic neighbourhood become another Brentwood or Metrotown, as developers buy up the houses, after the precedent is set for 273/275 Sherbrooke St. Elizabeth Fry’s executive director, Shawn Bayes,

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Proposal will be negative ◗ continued from page 6

told the attendees at the recent McBride Sapperton Resident’s Association, that she knows that concentrating too many social services in one area contributes to the “ghetto effect.” Yet she herself wants to forge ahead and do just that. It should be noted that none of the women who are currently receiving help, guidance or accommodation at the existing E Fry building will lose these supports or have to move out if the expansion is not done at this location. The neighbourhood has not been railing against E Fry for the past 15 years – it has only come about as a result of E Fry’s wish to set in motion a land-use change which could trigger a cascade of unwanted, uninvited re-development in a lively, thriving, family oriented neighbourhood – where people have chosen to live in a house. While the city is cognizant of the need for non-market rental housing they also need to recognize that affordable, free standing market housing should also be preserved – not everyone requires social housing, and not everyone can afford to live in Queen’s Park. E Fry has been adamant that all programs will remain at their present location. E Fry should enlist the help of a capable real estate agent to find them a suitable, properly designated and/or zoned, area to house their administrative staff (13) and whatever other commercial ventures they wish to develop to underwrite their programs. Catherine Cartwright, New Westminster

Community is responding

Dear Editor:

I want to weigh in with a few thoughts about the proposed zoning changes for Lower Sapperton. The area primarily affected is a two-block by five-block area bounded by Sherbrooke, East Columbia, Braid and Rousseau streets. The city proposes to remove single family zoning to create a “buffer zone” along the north side of Sherbrooke between

Columbia and Brunette by rezoning this for mixed commercial and institutional use. The neighbourhood opposes this because we are already under pressure from all sides. Pressures that in most cases have a negative impact on the livability of our neighbourhood. First the proposed OCP change will put additional traffic and parking pressure on our neighbourhood. To this we add Braid and Brunette commuter traffic which spills into our neighbourhood whenever there is any disruption. Second, development pressure on our single family neighbourhood continues with the Royal Columbia Hospital expansion, the Brewery District, the proposed Sapperton Green development (Braid Station) and the ongoing renewal of Columbia Street. To be fair we welcome most of the development around us because the additional shopping, services and restaurants enhance the livability of our neighbourhood. Coun. Chuck Puchmayr and I agree that Oscar’s has the best corned beef hash around. Third, we already host a number of institutional and social services. I understand why the city would lean towards supporting the OCP change because it will bring additional jobs and an increased tax base. Hospital expansion also needs the additional ancillary support services that would be housed in this area. The E Fry application is a convenient opening salvo to accomplishing this. Though this battle has taken center stage this rezoning issue is really not about them. The real issue, the bigger picture is about setting a precedent for making the single family area of Lower Sapperton smaller. We need a critical mass size to maintain our sense of community. As a community we sense the threat. At an unusually large turnout at the last MSRA meeting we responded with a resounding 36 – 0 against OCP change. Our neighbourhood is worth fighting for and we will continue to do so. Please oppose the OCP change.

Artist’s rendition/SUBMITTED BY ELIZABETH FRY SOCIETY

Looking forward: An artist’s rendition of the new building (at right) that the Elizabeth Fry Society hopes to build to help vulnerable women. Some neighbourhood residents, however, oppose the plan.

Society defends plan to expand services BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

The Elizabeth Fry Society is pursuing plans to provide independent housing and daycare services in New Westminster. The non-profit society has applied to the city for an amendment to the official community plan to change the designation of 273 and 275 Sherbrooke St. from residential low-density to major institutional. Its hope is to construct a building next to its current site that would include office space for the non-profit society, a licensed child-care centre and non-market housing for women. “My message is: I believe that setting aside space in the community for institutional space in the OCP is good. It sets it aside for the public good. EFry has tried to be a good neighbour, we have tried to listen to the things people have to say and respond,” said Shawn Bayes, the society’s

executive director. “We try to be a good community citizen. I don’t believe we are a risk.” Bayes noted that Sapperton has a long history of accommodating institutional uses, including Woodlands School, the B.C. Penitentiary and Royal Columbian Hospital. “It’s a community that has always been inclusive, that has had large projects here, whether that was in institutions or businesses,” she said. “So I think EFry fits in.” Founded in New Westminster in 1939, the Elizabeth Fry Society moved into its current building at 402 East Columbia St. in 1996. The building now accommodates the society’s administration staff, nine semiindependent suites for women, a halfway house for women released from prison, a shelter for homeless women, a drop-in program for women and children, Small Fry’s Boutique (a room where women can

shop for gifts using credits received from the society) and a reception area that also doubles as the location of “third party administration” services. Some neighbours have voiced concerns about the clients who get their social assistance cheques through the third party administration at EFry, the only program offered at the site that’s also open to male clients. According to Bayes, 17 people come to the society’s building biweekly or weekly to get their social assistance cheques. “The people who we take are people who are referred to us because they are determined to be outside the service ability of a government office,” she said. “That means they are people who phone a lot, they may be people who are difficult to deal with – absolutely there are people who like to yell. If their needs are assessed to be greater than that, and that’s from the spec-

trum of everything, then they are referred to third-party administration.” Bayes said the biggest reason people are sent to third-party administration is because they have trouble managing their $510 or $535 a month cheques, and become frustrated when they run out of food or money before receiving their next month’s cheque. The society helps people set up a budget, figure out how they can get into stable housing, get ID and open bank accounts so they can move on and get their cheque mailed to them. “TPA is not moving next door. It stays here,” Bayes said of the existing office. “The people who are moving are us – administration. The programs are not moving next door.

party administration since 2002. It’s nothing new. It’s not that there are more people coming here – there are not.” The proposed $5- to $8-million, fourstorey project would provide space for 10 units of independent, long-term housing for women and women with children, a 37-space child-care centre, a multipurpose space, a lobby between the two parts of the building, office space for the society’s administration staff and 23 underground parking spaces. The proposed development would be built on a property that is currently home to a parking lot used by the Elizabeth Fry Society and a house that served as a drug recovery home for 15 men for many years. By relocating the administration offices to the new building, the society would free up the first floor space in the existing building and once again be able to rent that space out to underwrite the costs of some of the services it offers. In addition to increased administration space, Bayes said the society has identified a “real need” for affordable housing for women in New Westminster. Unlike the semi-independent housing units in the existing building that have shared washrooms, the single women or women with children living in the 10 units of long-term independent housing would have their own bathrooms. “We want long-term housing,” Bayes said. “Here, you can only live here for 18 months. As kids grow, really if you are over three it is hard to be here. Kids need to run. There’s not enough space.” Bayes doesn’t feel that residents have anything to fear from the clients accessing any of its programs, noting he’s cognizant of the need to protect the women, children and staff who are living or working in the

building as well. Some neighbours have voiced concern about the number of police calls to the building at 402 East Columbia St. “The police report showed we do have calls to EFry. We phone the police to come,” Bayes said. “We have a halfway house here. If you are five minutes late home, we report you to what’s called the duty officer. A Canada-wide warrant is issued for your arrest. We have 12 women living here. … If you come home, then what usually happens is they stay here till the morning and then they speak to their parole office and they are usually sent back to jail.” According to Bayes, the society’s staff will call police to take those individuals back to jail. “When you live on conditional release in a halfway house, which is here, you live under tremendous scrutiny and a very, very limited tolerance for any leeway in the condition of your ability to be here,” she said. “Of that police report, it said that there were 40 calls roughly a year, and 25 of those were related to a breach of parole. That’s where they come and take you away. We do call people under the Mental Health act. I think there were a couple of calls under that designation. That is if we are concerned about people. It is possible you can be suicidal or be concerned about your well-being. We are a social service organization, but clearly we work closely with all community organizations. We ask help of the police if we need it.” A New Westminster Police Service report about calls for the Elizabeth Fry Society building stated that the police have not “had any extraordinary policing experiences” at the location in the past five years and don’t believe the building has required an “excessive response” from the police service.

Restoring head-turning city charmers

Basil Restoration brings out the character in New West homes BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

nhope@royalcityrecord.com

There are a lot of characters in New Westminster. And Mark Wittig has spent the last 22 years helping them show off. Like so many who find their way to the Royal City, Wittig fell in love with the city’s charming heritage homes. The difference with Wittig is that he’s devoted his life’s work to restoring the architectural gems he admires. Wittig was just 26 years old when he started Basil Restoration, an award-winning construction company that specializes in restoring heritage homes. “I had my own business before (I started Basil),” he says. “I used to build new houses, that dissolved, and I decided to go out on my own when I moved to New West.” Over the course of the last 22 years, Wittig’s company has been involved in building and restoring some of the city’s most head-turning properties. Basil Restoration worked on the “Screen House” in Massey Heights. The renovated ‘50s rancher was turned into a strikingly modern home that blends mid-century sensibility with contemporary architecture. Coined the “Screen House” because of the large wood and aluminum screen suspended in front of the second-storey addition, the screen is intended to keep too much sun from coming into the home’s large windows. “It was outside the box for us,” Wittig says about the York Street house, which was conceived by owners Les Linfoot and Jeanine Harper and architect Randy Bens. Basil Restoration won a SAM Award in 2009

While the Screen House definitely gets a nod for being one of the city’s more unique properties, a Fourth Avenue gem would likely be a more standard representation of a Basil-touched home. The house at 500 Fourth Ave. is a gorgeously restored heritage home that was once a dilapidated tear-down located at 506 10th St. Chris and Felicity Rudolph bought the house and had it moved to Fourth Avenue, where the eyecatching home currently sits.

“It was in awful shape,” Julie Schueck, the city’s heritage planner told the Record in 2010. “It’s amazing to me – not many people would look at that house and say, ‘That could be something.’ It was a

huge transformation.” When it comes to restoration, Witting say he focuses on maintaining as many original features as possible. “Let’s finish it keeping to the era of the house,” he

says. “Or if it is a budgetary thing, to do those budgetary things in the right location. If you want to save some money on windows, do vinyl windows in the basement or the backside of the house where you

can’t see them, and it’s not as noticeable as the front of the house.” Witting praised his roughly 15 to 20 staff for the success and appeal of the Basil name, calling ◗Homes Page 12

Home tour brings out the crowds AROUND TOWN

M

ore than a thousand people were looky-loos during the Heritage Preservation Society’s 33rd annual Heritage Homes Tour on May 27. Catherine Hutson, a member of the society, reports that more than 1,200 people took part in the sold-out event that featured a variety of homes in many of the city’s neighbourhoods, including Moody Park, Massey and Victory Heights, Sapperton and Queen’s Park. The tour included a trio of Craftsman homes on Hamilton Street that were celebrating their 100th birthday.

Good gamble

A local lacrosse team is gambling on a win in an upcoming tournament. The Salmonbellies Peewee A-1 team under coach Rich Catton is holding a fundraiser to help

raise money needed to finance a tournament in Edmonton on the Canada Day long weekend. While the players will take care of the action on the floor, the parents are planning a Texas Holdom fundraiser that will take place on June 8 at the Burnaby Lake Rugby Club. “Anybody can come if they’re 19 or older,” said parent Dara Davies. “There is going to be food served, and a reverse draw.” The tournament, which has a $100 buy-in, includes a first prize of $1,000, a second prize of $750 and a third prize of $100. For tickets or information, call Dara at 604-5151136.

Big sale

Glenbrooke North residents are gearing up for their annual garage sale. The 13th annual sale, presented by the Glenbrooke North Residents’ Association, is taking place on Saturday, June 16 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the neighbourhood that is bordered by 10th and Sixth avenues, and McBride Boulevard to Sixth Street. Donations are being accepted for Monarch Place, a local transition

house that offers shelter and support to women and children fleeing violence. Residents can register their garage sale location on the association’s website, which is found at www.glenbrookenorth. ca or by contacting Marya McLellan, the association’s secretary, at marya@ glenbrookenorth.ca with Garage Sale in the subject line.

Masonic past

A tour by A Sense of History Research Services will examine the Masonic buildings of downtown New Westminster and an early “skyscraper” in the city. The June 3 tour will get underway at 1:30 p.m. at the corner of Columbia and Fourth streets in downtown New Westminster. In the past year, local Masons have been marking their 150th anniversaries with assorted events. The tour will last one-and-a-half to two hours and runs rain or shine. There’s no need to register ahead of time.

Great strides

A lot of people helped take some Great Strides for cystic fibrosis in New Westminster on May 27.

Celebrating a century: The New Westminster Heritage Preservation Society’s recent home tour included a trio of Craftsman homes on Hamilton Street that were celebrating their 100th birthday. Standing at centre, from left, are home owners Doug Boyer, Elizabeth Abbott, Shelley Fralic and Aileen Brown. The Great Strides walk is organized by the Cystic Fibrosis chapter of Greater Vancouver in support of cystic fibrosis research. “I am sure over $100,000 was raised,” said Coun. Chuck Puchmayr. “I can’t wait to hear the results.” Across Canada, local chapters of Cystic Fibrosis Canada organize walks as fundraisers and as reminders of the challenges that cystic fibrosis patients and their families face every

day. May is Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month. The Reddy For a Cure team was one of the teams taking part in the local walk. Members of that team walked in honour of Eva Markvoort, a local woman passed away of cystic fibrosis in 2010 at the age of 25 and helped create global awareness about cystic fibrosis and organ donation through her blog and documentary, 65 Red Roses.“We need to continue her leg-

acy in New Westminster,” Puchmayr said. “She is truly a hero and continues to benefit people.” Coun. Bill Harper was impressed with the turnout at the event that raised funds for the “terrible disease” of cystic fibrosis. “There were hundreds of people there,” he said. “It was one of the biggest walks I have seen in Queen’s Park.” tmcmanus@royalcity record.com

City has freemason history OUR PAST

ARCHIE & DALE MILLER

O

ver the past year we have commented a number of times about the history of the Freemasons of New Westminster and noted events and anniversaries relating both to separate local lodges and to the overall beginning of Masonic groups in this city. If you have worked on your genealogy, you are well aware of the potential importance of finding out that an early relative belonged to a group such as the Masons or the Elks, Kiwanis, Rotary, Independent Order of Oddfellows (IOOF), Eagles, and so on. You might also find business affiliations, professional groups, unions, religious denominations and more.

All of these bodies, to various degrees and limitations, can open doors to information, sources and leads to your family member’s story. Most are happy to help wherever they can. The Freemasons of New Westminster in 1861 and 1862 set about forming a lodge that would eventually be known as Union Lodge. From this inception and through the formation of other lodges in the city, the Masons have met in a number of rooms and separate buildings over the past 150 years. At present, the lodge building, an impressive brick faced landmark on Agnes Street, is home to many different Masonic and related groups. Back in the early 1860s, the Masons started by meeting in any available room and then became somewhat formalized with a site at a hotel owned by Philip Hicks. They had homes in three other buildings along Columbia Street at Lorne Street, two of which burned in large fires, and

The strong arm of the sport

Seven-time champ unbeaten with left arm

BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Arm wrestler Anthony Dall’Antonia is putting his best arm forward this summer. Dall’Antonia will be both front-and-centre and behind the scenes at this year’s Canadian national championships in Richmond on the Canada Day long weekend. The 11-time national two-arm champion will have a dual role at the nationals besides defending his right- and left-arm titles. Dall’Antonia will be helping to organize the nationals for the first time. “I think the big part is the competitive part. It was my strength being a competitor. But (organizing) is more of a challenge,” said the 30-year-old Dall’Antonia. “But eventually maybe the elbows will begin to feel it down the road. I love the sport, and I want to give back to the sport and to do everything I can to grow the sport.” Tothatend,Dall’Antonia has taken on the roles as the Canadian federation director of communication and the provincial association’s media director. He is also getting into refereeing and coaching in a bigger way. Dall’Antonia runs the Vancouver Arm Wrestling Club out of a Burnaby garage near Kensington Avenue and Broadway. Last year, the club expanded to three satellite clubs with one in downtown Vancouver, serving the westside, and another existing club also taking

lenge comes from George Iszakouits of Ontario, an older competitor who has a physical condition that locks his elbow making him next to impossible to beat. Dall-Antonia is the only man to have bettered Iszakouits at the nationals. The matches between the two men can last up to 15 minutes, which is in direct contrast to most of Dall’Antonia’s right-handed bouts that are over in a blink of an eye. The defending seventime national champion is

The New Westminster Salmonbellies lost their first meeting of the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League season to Coquitlam. Two stout defences played centre-stage at the Queen’s Park Arena following the Adanacs’ 5-3 win over the host Salmonbellies. “Our shortman kept us in the game and Frankie (Scigliano) was unreal. We just have to score goals,” said New Westminster team captain Brandon Goodwin. “They (the Adanacs) are still human, and we’re at their level. It comes down to gelling as a team, and we’re going to pick up as we go. That’s what it’s going to come down to.” Coquitlam took advantage of a pair of first-period power plays to wrestle the junior A ’Bellies to a 2-2 draw at the interval. First-year runner Luke Gillespie tied the game at 1-1 with his sixth goal of the campaign. Goodwin then gave New West its only lead of the contest on a nice finish at the left crease off a crossfloor pass through traffic from Kyle Dobbie. Scigliano stopped 30 shots in the Salmonbellie cage. Junior scoring leader Cole Schafer got the only goal of a tightly played

Brothers in arms: Dante, left, and Anthony Dall’Antonia practise the sport of arm wrestling for the upcoming Canadian nationals to be held in Richmond over the Canada Day long weekend. on the club’s logo and brand in Campbell River. Besides sharing website information, the club also intends to work closely with the other groups, sending wrestlers to the other sites to hold seminars and share experiences. “We’re trying to help them by putting back into our sport and teaching them,” said Dall’Antonia. “We’re just hoping they can piggy-back off of us.” The nationals have been held in B.C. three times before but always in Kelowna. When the west earned the bid this year,

Dall’Antonia decided to take the bull by the horns. He chose the River Rock Casino complex as the venue because of its close proximity to the airport. The championships will be held from June 29 to July 2, with the competition taking place on the Saturday and Sunday. Leading up to the nationals, the club will showcase the sport of arm wrestling at The Vancouver Men’s Show at the Tradex Centre in Abbotsford from June 15 to 17. An armwrestling challenge for first-timers-only

will be held on the Sunday as the club’s way of helping popularize the sport and dispell any misconceptions of the wrestlers to a new segment of the Lower Mainland. “There has always been the stereotype of the bikerbelly guy in the bar,” said Dall’Antonia. “But there is a lot of athleticism – speed, strength and technique. It’s an explosive sport and quick.” Dall’Antonia is the current titleholder at 80 kilograms for both right and left arms. His biggest chal-

Golfing Knights victorious at high school invitational BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

It wasn’t exactly five in a row, but it was the next best thing for the St. Thomas More Knights golf team. The Knights won a two-day, eight-team high school invitational golf tournament hosted by Shawnigan Lake School and held at Arbutus Ridge Golf Course in Cowichan Bay last Sunday. Grade 11 Knight Alan Tolusso won the individual low gross, posting a five-under-par 135 fol-

lowing an even-par-70 in the opening round. Tolusso fired a sizzling 65 on the final day of competition despite the many out of bounds and tricky greens on the 6,193yard Arbutus Ridge course. “To be able to shoot that well, you have to putt well and be able to put his ball in the right place. It was an excellent, excellent showing,” said STM head coach Joe Thierman. The Burnaby golfer, the only competitor to shoot par or better in the two-day event, easily bettered runner-up Cris Crisologo of

Vancouver College by 11 strokes. STM teammates, Kevin Vigna and Lucas Gatto, also played well, finishing in third and fourth place, respectively. Vigna shot a two-day total of 152, while Gatto was one shot back at 153. Nick Belle and Brendan Lancaster also contributed to STM’s team scores. “The kids did very well. It was a good way to have Lucas (Gatto) end his five-year career. We’ve ended up the last five years with five tournament victories. The younger kids have something to

aspire to, so that’s good too,” Thierman said. Another Burnaby golfer, Wayne Racette, of Vancouver College placed fifth with a 154 score. STM held a nine-shot lead over College after the opening 18 holes with a first-round aggregate total of 302. The Knights increased that advantage on the second day, finishing with a team total of 609, 15 shots better than the Vancouver private school. Host Shawnigan Lake nipped St. George’s A team by a single

stroke to garner third place. Coming into this school year, the defending AA provincial champion Knights were poised to make high school history as a five-time provincial winner. But earlier in the year, the ongoing dispute between B.C. teachers and the provincial government forced the cancellation of the B.C. High School Sports provincial golf championships.

New West got one back in with the goalie pulled for a sixth attacker in the final minute of play. Keegan Bal bounced a ball off the Coquitlam keeper’s back from behind the net with 46 seconds remaining, but seconds later, Challen Rogers found a

The Adanacs improved their firstplace record to 8-1-0, while New Westminster remained in third place, a point behind Delta, with a 6-3-0 record. “(Coquitlam) has an unreal pressure defence.

Predeceased by his wife Doris (nee Beginn) February 6, 2010, brother David 1996. Lewis went to be with Doris on May 25, 2012. Lewis’s legacy; three sons, Dana (Donna), Carey (Lynn), Michael (Daphne), seven grandchildren, Meryl, Angela (Dave), Chelsea, Adrien, Lindsay, Brady, Cameron. Lewis leaves to mourn, sister-in law Rita and nieces/nephews Lee, Rena, Marnie, Derek, cousins Dorothy, Jimmie and lifelong friends across Canada and the US. Lewis received his BA as an Honours Math student at UBC 1944. Following this he went to McGill Medical School and then specialized in Urology. As an intern at the Montreal General Hospital he met Doris Beginn which led to a remarkable 60 year marriage. He practiced medicine in New Westminster until 1984. Among his many accomplishments, Lewis was head of the Urology Department at the Royal Columbian Hospital during his career, Commodore of the Royal Westminster Yacht Club, and a member of the Boundary Bay Flying Club as well as the Langley Flying Club whose members shared his love of flying.. In his “retirement” he combined his medical expertise with his love for aviation and performed aviation medicals for the MOT. Lewis was passionate about flying, projects at his cottage, and his incredible workshop where he spent hours at a time designing and constructing everything from safes and wagons for the grandchildren to prefabricated docks and buildings for his cottage. His love of flying his own airplane took him as far north as Inuvik and as far south as Mexico with numerous trips and experiences in between. He was a remarkable individual with many talents. He will be missed. Our sincere thanks to our Dufferin Care Center family for their kind loving care. We also thank Dr. Bernie Toews for his many years of care. No service by request.

HERINGER, Herman (Harry) Harold May 02, 1943 - May 25, 2012 Passed away peacefully at home after struggling with the effects of bladder cancer for 18 months. Beloved husband of Joann. Loving father of Pauli-Ann (Dan) Carriere and Heidi Heringer. Proud opa of Danielle and Jack. Harry will be deeply missed by his family. A 42-year resident of Queensborough, Harry will be sadly missed by his many friends in the neighbourhood. Harry also leaves behind extended family and friends worldwide, particularly in the village of his childhood, Langenschiltach, Germany, and Winnipeg, Manitoba, where he spent his school years and young adulthood, met his bride, and apprenticed with the Canadian National Railway. At the age of 23, Harry moved his young family to New Westminster and continued his work as a heavy duty mechanic, eventually retiring from B.C. Hydro in 2002, after more than 20 years of service. Never without an opinion, Harry loved adventure and a hearty conversation, preferably over an ice-cold beer, after a long ride on his Harley Davidson. Harry truly and forever enjoyed the company of his family and friends. A celebration of life will be held in August 2012. In lieu of flowers, in -memoriam contributions to the Canadian Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Continue to rest, retreat – be alone, to enjoy the peace, to think clearly, and to accomplish and make plans while others dance for the pied piper of others’ approval. Tackle chores and protect your health (eat, dress sensibly) Sunday/Monday. All’s well, but avoid unsafe use of machinery in/around home Monday. Relationships succeed in every way Tuesday/Wednesday, except one: marriage, partnership. Be diplomatic. Life’s mysteries rise to the surface Thursday (problems – careful driving, and with machinery) and Friday (success) – a powerful (but forbidden?) attraction might occur. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The accent remains on friendships, groups, wish fulfillment, entertainment, and light romance (which might become deep). Sunday/Monday emphasize the intense side of these areas, and could cause a mild dilemma: do you opt for light or powerful romance? For independent creativity, or “creation by committee?” If things do intensify, let them. Only money, or emotional possessiveness, can ruin results (Monday and Thursday). Tackle chores Tuesday/Wednesday. (Be careful with electricity – and your back.) Love, exciting meetings, new vistas, great opportunities arrive, Thursday to Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The focus lies on your career, worldly standing, prestige relationships, and dealings with authorities. Be careful, prudent this week, for Sunday/Monday and Thursday could trigger hasty reactions on all sides. Otherwise, this is a productive, good week, especially Thursday (avoid temper, hasty investments) through Saturday, when your work efforts meet with splendid success, and could, by Saturday, introduce you to meaningful new relationships or opportunities. Earlier, Sunday and Monday are for home, family, security, nature. Your romantic, beauty-oriented side surfaces midweek.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections

Aries March 21 - April 19: The emphasis remains on trips, visits, talks, emails, news media, casual friends and siblings, curiosity and information. Delays exist, but affection graces all (well, most) interactions. A wise, loving mood descends upon you Sunday and Monday – two lucky days, if you can leave work to one side. (Careful with machines and driving – Thursday too.) Your ambitions come into clear focus Tuesday/ Wednesday. The barrier you feel is a relationship barrier; as long as someone doesn’t accept you, a career advance might be hard to gain. Thursday on, popularity, optimism and joy visit you! Taurus April 20-May 20: The accent remains on money, buying/selling, earnings, clients, possessions – and sensual attractions. Sunday/ Monday, your finances lean toward long-term objectives: investments, debt reduction (or increase) money-sharing, etc. Be bold Sunday, mildly careful Monday. A wise, gentle, understanding mood drifts over you Tuesday/Wednesday. Don’t force home/ domestic matters either evening. Your ambitions awaken Thursday/Friday – avoid bending any legal/ ethical rules (and avoid those who do) – your efforts could strike gold, or earn a VIP’s praise! Joy, friends Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Your energy, charisma, clout and effectiveness ride the crest of a wave! Get out, start important projects, ask favours, express love if you feel it – in all, avoid selfish or ultraindependent actions/moods. (This advice applies until Aug. 30.) You’ll be reminded of others’ presence Sunday/Monday, when relationships occupy centre stage. Exciting meetings, challenges/opposition, opportunities, partnerships, even love are possible. But both days (and Thursday) hint that your home, or your hopes about home, property, can block a bonding. Love, joy, travel late week.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The things you love gently pull your sleeve this week: far travel, international ideas and communications, law and justice, learning, culture and compassionate love. Try a foreign film or a play. (DO NOT start a lawsuit before September.) Casual friends, siblings, short trips, paperwork and communications fill Sunday/Monday.These two days, and Thursday, point to a flaw in a new or burgeoning relationship: this person might have too much power over you, subtly restricts or burdens you, etc. Retreat to contemplate this, midweek. Thursday to Saturday: romance, creative urges, beauty! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Mysteries, secrets, research, detective work – mighty changes which can turn the course of your life – powerful sexual urges, high intuition, financial courage – these fill this week and next. To succeed, keep honesty and moral goodness in your fist. (Without these, success occurs, but itself forms the first step toward traps and loss. Remember this advice through August.) This week, work demands or co-workers might interfere with your progress: act when free of these. Chase money Sunday/Monday. Trips, talk midweek. Thursday to Saturday brings a triumph on family, realty fronts. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, clout and pizzazz ride high Sunday/Monday – but it’s only so you can be more attractive when you propose joining up with others. Maintain a diplomatic, friendly approach, but do approach. Chase money – carefully – Tuesday/Wednesday. Thursday to Saturday bring travel, errands, casual friends, siblings, news and curiosity. You and another might start a friendly romance; someone might aid you in home or real estate. A Gemini now can change your life; an Aries might disrupt it. All week, protect your career position with a simple potion: gentleness, humour.

June 3 - 9, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Tackle chores. Sleep properly, and protect your health from seasonal complaints. Continue to avoid legal suits. Retreat, contemplate and plan Sunday/Monday. Some of your ideas could be brilliant, especially in areas of labour and career. Your energy and charisma return somewhat midweek – your home/family hold surprises (and you’re tense there) so train your efforts on career, prestige, document and educational fronts. Spend, chase money Thursday to Saturday – luck accompanies you! But buy no machinery, computer or auto. All week, diplomatically sidestep opinionated people. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A love affair might have begun recently, or could this week. It’s quite likely that your “amour” stumbles over speech, acts nervous, or has a temper (or a critical side). You need to decide whether to fuse together, or to wait until someone else wanders down the path. I have no advice: only that, if your motives are pure, this affair should be fine. It certainly has a sexy side. Your popularity and optimism soar Sunday/Monday. A wish might come true! Retreat, find rest and solitude Tuesday/ Wednesday. Your energy, charisma and clout surge Thursday to Saturday – start something! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The accent remains on home, property, family, nature, nutrition and soul. Be restful – this is a bit of a hibernation time. Your luck in real estate grows – to June 2013. Be ambitious Sunday/Monday, but deftly avoid money discussions (Thursday also) especially with a partner or prospective client. Your hopes rise – so does your popularity – Tuesday/Wednesday. But take care both evenings, as monetary or sensual disappointment can occur. Retreat Thursday to noon Saturday – lie low, rest, contemplate and plan. Though you’re tired, your luck soars in home, realty, love and art. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-727-3673
