Chief Skugaid cut adrift by Larco

D

avid Cobb fears for the future of an iconic piece of British Columbia’s maritime history. Cobb owns Chief Skugaid, a fishing boat that will be celebrating its 100th anniversary in March. The boat’s colourful history has included stints as a halibut schooner, a rumrunner vessel during U.S. prohibition and a fish packer for the salmon and herring fleets. “It’s a national treasure,” he said. “This boat should be hero of the republic as far as I am concerned.” Cobb, who once worked as an investigative journalTHERESA MCMANUS ist, said the Chief Skugaid was packed with so much herring at one point in the 1970s that it nearly sank off the west coast of Vancouver Island. When the herring was pumped out, the vessel was salvaged. “This boat has been in harm’s way,” said Cobb, who bought the vessel about three years ago. “It’s in harm’s way now.” Cobb was en route to a shipyard in Queensborough in June 2011 when his trip was thwarted by a mishap on the river. A gravel barge crashed into the rail bridge leading from the waterfront to Queensborough, preventing Chief Skugaid from accessing the shipyard. “I was forced to over at this place,” Cobb said about a spot on the waterfront near River Market. Cobb’s original plan was to do a bit of work on the Chief Skugaid at the shipyard, and then carry on and head up the coast, but he’s found it challenging to find moorage space for Chief Skugaid. “I need a dock,” he said. “I have been looking for a year – this dock is not ideal. I can’t find another dock. I would happily go to another dock.” Time is running out to find a new moorage spot for the boat. Soon after Chief Skugaid arrived on the waterfront, the property management company looking after the adjacent land asked Cobb to move along. The company stated that Cobb’s moorage of the boat at the wharf in the foreshore area constituted trespassing. Lawyers working on behalf of No. 143 Cathedral Ventures Ltd. filed actions in the Supreme Court of British Columbia

In harm’s way: David Cobb is passionate about preserving Chief Skugaid, a century old fishing boat. But he’s lost his moorage on the city’s river waterfront and is desperately looking for someplace to tie up on a permanent basis. seeking to restrain Cobb from trespassing on the property and the foreshore, to move the vessel from the property and foreshore, and to have the right to tow the vessel elsewhere and recover costs from Cobb. Court documents filed on behalf of Cathedral Ventures Ltd. state that Cobb has received a benefit and has been “enriched” by its use and occupation of the property and the foreshore, whereas the land owner has suffered a “detriment in being deprived of the use of its property and the foreshore” and has not been paid for the boat’s use and occupant of the plaintiff’s property and foreshore. In a letter to Cobb, lawyers acting for

143 Cathedral Ventures Ltd. state that their client had never granted permission for moorage on the dock or on the foreshore. The letter also stated that the lease of the foreshore doesn’t permit overnight vessel moorage, float homes or live-aboards. According to the court documents, Cobb originally stated he would moor the vessel at the site for about two weeks until the bridge was repaired and would then proceed to the shipyard, but he remained at the site. Cobb argued that the site was a historical “common law tie up area” and stayed put as he didn’t feel he was illegally moored.

Although Larco did not have a lease for the foreshore when Cobb arrived at the site, it later finalized a lease with the Vancouver Farer Port Authority on Oct. 1, 2012 and again informed Cobb of the requirement to move Chief Skugaid. In documents filed in November 2012, Larco stated that the defendant “continues to occupy the property and intends to continue the trespass unless restrained from doing so.” When Cobb didn’t respond to the lawyer’s request to vacate the foreshore and dock by Nov. 6, 2012, the company pursued the matter through the courts.

‘DOGS GAVE ME HOPE, THEY GAVE ME A REASON TO KEEP GOING EVERYDAY’

Dogs helped Dawn find a new life M

urphy, Amber and Izzy lay on mattresses, cuddled up in blankets, resting after a long morning

walk. Their “auntie” wraps them snuggly, petting them and encouraging them to rest. Axle, a mellow, handsome German shepard looks on, several feet back. “Auntie” (and “mom” to Amber) is Dawn Taylor, owner of New Dawn Doggie Daycare, a New Westminsterbased daycare centre Taylor founded seven years ago, when she was released from prison. Taylor spent more than a decade in prison, after being found guilty of second-degree murder of her common-law boyNIKI HOPE friend. Taylor says she acted in self-defense to protect herself from her boyfriend, who she says was physically abusive. The courts found otherwise. The time Taylor spent in jail was difficult, but there was one bright spot. Taylor started working with dogs through the B.C. dog program while inside. “Because I’d gone into a dysfunctional volatile culture that I’d never been introduced to or had any kind of understanding about, prison culture, dogs gave me hope, they gave me a reason to keep going everyday,” she says. Taylor was often scared but didn’t show it. “If you show fear, you don’t survive,” she says. Taylor had severe depression, but dog training helped her through. The dogs kept her from using drugs to escape the unhappiness and gave her life purpose. “What this program did for the prison, was it changed it to a calmer atmosphere,” she says, explaining the impact of the dog-training program. The kennel was her life, Taylor says. “That was what I was going to do for the rest of my life, I figured,” she says. There was a “tight regiment” of who was allowed in and out of the kettle program in the prison, Taylor explains. “We had a lot of exposure, and we had to make the community understand that it was OK to bring these dogs into our program so we could get these dogs into the SPCA, and then it took off. A year ahead of time they were phoning. People wanted their dogs in the program.” Through newspaper coverage, people learned about what they were doing and wanted their dogs trained by the inmates. They rescued many dogs, retrained them and got them used to being with humans, she says. “We changed the way that society

She launched her business with the help of the New Westminster-based Elizabeth Fry Society, at the society’s headquarters in Sapperton but has since relocated to Front Street. viewed women in prison because of the work we were doing,” she adds. Taylor, who says she had a perfect prison record, was committed to the program, but not every inmate could maintain her level of devotion. “There was a steady of me and another girl. Others would come in and out. They come in wanting to get a good shot at it, then they’d get released, go back to the same lifestyle and they’d see them again months later,” she says. The revolving doors she saw in the system was something Taylor wanted to change. “As far as I was concerned, if this was going to be my life and I had no other place to be, I was going to do the best job I could to make sure that these animals were saved and that anybody’s animals that came to us were better after they left.” When she was released from prison seven years ago, Taylor says she initially experienced culture shock – the technological boom of the new millennium – cellphones and computers everywhere. The world had changed since she went in more than a decade earlier. But there was no question what she would do – her life went to the dogs.

With the help of the New Westminsterbased Elizabeth Fry Society, Taylor launched her business from the society’s headquarters in Sapperton. “I knew I was meant to do this because I wouldn’t be so good at it if I wasn’t,” says Taylor, who stops traffic when she’s out walking her diverse pack. Kerry Elliott owns Axle, the handsome three-year-old, 90-pound male German shepard. Elliott’s been sending Axle to New Dawn for a year-and-a-half. “I took him there because I needed help to make sure he had the proper training,” Elliott says. “She’s a qualified person, she’s certified and registered. She was recommended by another dog trainer, because she does behavioural work. “He’s been very fortunate to have her because of the good care and training,” she says. Elliott says she has health issues and she can’t walk Axle. “The walking and the behavioural help have made a huge difference,” she says. The dogs are not distracted when they walk with Taylor, Elliott says. “She has the love, the care and the knowledge, and besides that she’s funny. So it doesn’t get any better than that for

me,” says Elliott. Taylor relocated her business to Front Street, to expand. But the move has meant more overhead, and she’s hoping to have even more pups to care for. Taylor offers everything from grooming services to daycare to boarding. Her dog trainer hero is Cesar Millan. She’s seen the famous dog guru twice. (One of her tickets to his appearance is framed on the wall inside her daycare.) “I have a beautiful style of training that I think reflects Cesar’s way. I’m not as beautiful as him because he’s way more practiced, and he has a totally calm energy. He’s got the gift. I have a gift, but I’m not the whisperer, but I am damn close. I believe in giving people the opportunity to have a calm, gentle life with their dog.” Taylor says she specializes in dogs with behavioural issues. “Most of the daycares won’t take the dogs that show any form of aggression, at all,” she says. “The dogs that don’t get to go anywhere, these are the ones we want here.” Then she adds, “Maybe all of the children I didn’t get to have, these are definitely my children, and I’m their auntie Dawn.”

It’s official – builder signs

Jennifer Gauthier/THE RECORD

Project Manager Jim Alkins, at left, signs the contract agreement with Yellowridge Design Build Ltd. to build a new elementary school as the school’s future students and John Robson Elementary’s vice-principal Paul Manville look on. The school district held the official signing on Wednesday afternoon at Robson. The district has been working on plans to build a new elementary, middle school and high school for well over a decade. The first phase of building involves constructing a new elementary school on the former St. Mary’s Hospital site. The school will be the site of Robson. The current site of the elementary school will then house a middle school, once the old school is torn down. The new elementary school at St. Mary’s will include five kindergarten rooms and 18 classrooms for students in grades one to five, as well as spaces for child care, family support services and intergenerational multi-purpose space. The school district evaluation team reviewed proposals from several construction companies before deciding to go with Yellowridge.

Skugaid: Judge gives Cobb 30 days to move boat ◗ continued from page 1

The two sides appeared in B.C. Supreme Court in January, with the judge granting an injunction and giving Cobb 30 days to move Chief Skugaid. “It’s already in effect,” he told The Record on Wednesday. “I am on a day-by-day basis.” Finding a dock that can accommodate a boat that’s more than 90 feet in length is no small feat. Noting that there’s no “marine fairyland” that’s magically going to appear and provide a home for Chief Skugaid, Cobb said he’s fraught with anxiety about where he’s going to move the boat. “I have been looking for a year,” he said. “Where does one put a boat that is 100 years old, 93 feet long? Nobody wants a boat like that.” If Chief Skugaid were located

in many other jurisdictions, Cobb believes Chief Skugaid would be designated as a historical monument. He’s been doing what he can to restore the boat and needs a place where he can continue that work. “I have put $30,000 into this boat, all my money,” he said. “It still has a long way to go.” Cobb, who has lived in New Westminster on and off since 1953, wants to find another location in the city for the boat. “It allows me to continue refurbishment of the oldest working vessel in British Columbia,” he said. “There should be a brass plaque on that boat. This is the oldest working boat, bar none. It’s part of historic New West.” Like Chief Skugaid, Cobb said the port of New Westminster is also celebrating its 100th anniversary in

2013. Along with its sister ship Chief Zibassa, Chief Skugaid was commissioned in 1912 and built in a shipyard in Coal Harbour, Vancouver. “People say, that is the same year as the Titanic,” Cobb said of the ship that sank in 1912. “I have to remind them the Titanic went down.” Cobb frets about what will happen if the boat is towed away from its current site, as it’s not only Cobb’s home but also home for his two dogs. “I have to continue to be the ship’s keeper,” said Cobb, whose life on the sea includes fishing in Newfoundland and Ireland. “Under maritime law, a ship that size … has to have somebody aboard.” Anyone with information about potential moorage can email Cobb via www.chiefskugaid.org. tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

ché. They cannot offer their supporters any more free rides, and they also can’t cut community services anymore – triggering more ugly headlines and giving Adrian Dix ammunition. The problem is Dix can, at this point, just criticize and stand back hoping no one notices that he cleverly avoids offering any clear, viable alternatives. It reminds us of an election a couple of decades ago when the hot topic was the government taking casino funds. An NDP insider confided that he

hoped the Liberals would do it, even though the NDP had criticized it. He knew that government coffers were in desperate need of a new cash flow, and casinos would be a cash cow. And, when the NDP won the next election, they could tut tut about it all they wanted, but they all knew that they would never roll back the decision and lose all that money. We think Dix can tut tut all he wants now, but he knows, as do others, that the NDP isn’t going to roll back anything that can bring in much-needed cash.

Costs too high for younger generation IN MY OPINION PAUL KERSHAW

W

e all know housing prices have gone way up compared to a generation ago. This is especially true in B.C.’s Lower Mainland – now the most expensive place to live on the continent. According to the Canadian Real Estate Association, the average cost of housing is $780,000 in Metro Vancouver, a region that includes Burnaby, Port Moody, Coquitlam, Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge. By contrast, the average cost in 1976 was a paltry $62,000 – or $240,000 in today’s dollars, after adjusting for inflation. Housing prices that are more than three-times higher are great news for some. Since many bought homes decades ago, far higher housing values mean far more wealth for them. But what’s been good for retiring parents is generally bad for their kids and grandchildren. High home prices squeeze generations under age 45 with crushing debt, which they must pay with wages that have fallen 13 per cent compared to a generation ago, and in jobs that rarely contribute pensions. It would be one thing to

accept that times are tougher for younger people, if we were working as a community, province and country to try to mitigate the squeeze. But we’re not. Governments spend just $12,000 on benefits and services per Canadian under 45, compared to nearly $45,000 for every retiree. This is not a “good deal” if you are under 45. Despite Canada’s economy producing more wealth than ever before, investments made in their generations look a little scant, or unbalanced. And that’s before talking about the larger government and environmental debts they inherit. Still, younger generations are doing all they can to adapt. To compete for better employment, they squeeze in years more of education and tuition. To buy a place, they accept jobs or contracts that require them to work years more to save a down payment. Many wait years longer to move out of their parents’ homes or to establish their financial independence. And when they do, they often commute long distances to work, especially when living in Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge. Or they give up the dream of home ownership to accept high rents, as is growing more common even in Burnaby, let alone in Vancouver. The latter has become the quintessential generational city, where people own homes primarily if they got into the housing market long ago or are

Former politician toes party line Dear Editor:

Re: Unfair shot at NDP candidate, Letters, The Record, Feb. 13. I was quite surprised that Graeme Bowbrick, a former high-ranking NDP member (auditor general and minister of advanced education under the Glen Clark regime) would enter into the independent debate so early. I think his analysis of James Crosty’s letter, Crosty ponders run, from the Feb. 6 edition of The Record, was more reflective of toeing party politics than of trying to accurately discuss Mr. Crosty’s statements. Bowbrick’s letter confirms Crosty’s testament that a faction of disenfranchised NDP members exist in our city, and many have shared their con◗Struggle Page 7 cerns with him.

Mr. Bowbrick states that, “ … he takes a shot at NDP candidate … as having been ‘parachuted’ into New West.” Bowbrick should reread the article before commenting on what he thought he read. Crosty clearly stated he was sharing conversations he has had with NDP supporters about the parachuting issue, not having ever said that himself. Bowbrick points out that he also was parachuted into this area and was the subject of discourse and comment. What is “unbecoming” and “dumb” is not being truthful about parachuting and namecalling in what is perhaps an attempt to squelch the discussion. Like Bowbrick, Crosty was not born here either, but he has called New West home for more than 20 years. While long-term residency is not a requirement to run, it is a distinct advantage when ◗Crosty Page 7

discussing and understanding issues applicable to our 150-year-old Royal City. Bowbrick’s writing of an ill-informed candidate endorsement; “I know her by reputation,” speaks soundly to the reasoning behind considering an independent MLA such as Crosty to be our representative in Victoria. While Crosty has his detractors, he also has his supporters. He proved his dedication to the city and its people in the 2011 municipal election and the 2012 $59-million petition, to name a few. Crosty’s supporters know him to be an independent thinker, a person of integrity and one whose convictions could merge many of the NDP, Liberal, Green and Conservative ideals. While I have no doubt New West “would do well” with party politics, perhaps New West would do better with an independent one. An independent candidate may increase voter turnout, heighten the campaign, the debate, the public interest and discussion. After reading Mr. Bowbrick’s letter, I think it already has. Calling someone dumb because they have become aware of an issue is not the way to engage in a meaningful discussion. So much for the NDP not running a negative campaign! Perhaps such negativity is the reason for public apathy toward

Side benefits to initiative

Dear Editor:

Re: Arts council looks to enhance streets, The Record, Feb. 15. I read with some interest Rick Carswell’s idea presented to city council to dress up the “faded ladies” of New Westminster’s numerous vacant commercial properties with art work. This would create an interesting outlet for the artistic efforts of our vibrant creative community. With the city having given up on attracting new commercial and industrial enterprises, signalled with the non-renewal of the manager of economic development’s position, perhaps making silk purses out of sows ears is the only strategy left to do something with New Westminster’s overbuilt commercial property inventory. I note that there is also a move to convert some commercial space to housing use, a continuation of the city’s policy of recycling properties, like the old Russell Hotel, to house the homeless. Like many commercial enterprises, hotels can’t seem to make a go of it in New Westminster either, if we inventory all of the hotels that are now converted to other uses or struggling to make a go of it. Hostels and SROs seem to do better.

the financial foundation they’ve patched together. Since two earners barely bring home today what one breadwinner did in the 1970s, we’ve gone from 40 hour work weeks to closer to 80 hours. The result? Generations raising young kids are squeezed for time at home. They are squeezed for income because housing prices are nearly double, even though young people often live in condos, or trade yards for time-consuming commutes. And they are squeezed for services like child care, which are essential for parents to deal with rising costs, but are in short supply, and cost more than university. We can change this. While the deck may be stacked against younger generations now, we can get “A Better Generational Deal” – one that gives all generations a chance. A deal that safeguards our

Struggle: Financial hardship for young among the richest of the next generation. Fact is, postponing more, working more, and scaling down expectations for the size and location of housing are key coping mechanisms for many younger people today. Ironically, others routinely overlook these coping strategies when judging younger generations to be lazy, consumerist, even entitled – a charge that flies in the face of data showing governments annually spend nearly four times more on benefits and services for each Canadian retiree compared to each Canadian under 45. Although they try to cope, most in the younger generations have a big problem because they can’t work their way out of the time and income squeeze unless they give up something fundamental – the opportunity to have the family they may want or

medical care and retirement security without sacrificing our children’s present and our grandchildren’s future. As it turns out, residents of Burnaby, Port Moody, Coquitlam, Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge have particular power to bring about this better generational deal. Why? Because as I’ll show in my next column, these cities are home to provincial ridings where recent elections have been especially close. So if even just a few hundred people add their vote to “reduce the squeeze,” it can make a big difference to the next election result. That’s precisely when politicians are most likely to listen.

Letters: Downtown businesses struggle ◗ continued from page 7

If councillors Jonathan Cote and Chuck Puchmayr can rally the other “me too” councillors at city hall, there would be a significant side benefit, as well. The numerous panhandlers up around Sixth Avenue and Sixth Street, identified in Paul Thompson’s recent letter, who stand in front of vacant commercial space there, could at least have something uplifting to look at while they harass passers-by. I gather the pickings are much better uptown than downtown or are the clients on “slap and tickle street” less generous as they buy their wedding dresses or shop at the down-market shops along Columbia Street? I understand many of these enterprises are struggling – some even being in arrears on their city taxes. The departure of the well-healed members of the Westminster Club likely also made it harder to cadge for quarters. I applaud Rick Carswell’s initiative here. Perhaps he should be granted the title of New Westminster’s “Mr. Dressup” to compliment his other royal honours. E. C. “Ted” Eddy, by email

Money isn’t the solution Dear Editor:

British Columbians shouldn’t be surprised the B.C. NDP’s first campaign promise is to throw money at an issue to make it go away. NDP leader Adrian Dix kicked off his campaign pledging to extend compensation to all victims of abuse at the former Woodlands School, not just those who attended after Aug. 1, 1974. Despite the good intentions of Dix’s claim, there’s no guarantee the province has a large enough fund to honour all possible claims. What’s worse is the NDP’s plan fails to address the root cause.

Mental illness affects one in five Canadians. Despite most conditions being preventable and treatable, it is the largest single burden on our health-care system. Spending money we don’t have without fixing the issue is not sound public policy. It’s more like throwing spaghetti at the wall and hoping some of it sticks. But as they’ve proven over and over again in both Victoria and Ottawa, that’s the NDP’s only policy. Anthony Manning, by email

Panhandling a nuisance

Dear Editor:

Re: Panhandling out of control in city’s business district, Letters, The Record, Feb. 13. Panhandling does seem to be getting out of hand in our lovely, quiet city. When I recently emailed my concern to the city, I was quite surprised at their response. Their reply was more of a “rules and regulations” for panhandling, as opposed to a bylaw against it. Interesting outlook from our city planners. I often see panhandlers sitting on the street, which is a strict no-no, according to the so-called rules. I always check to see where a certain panhandler is standing with hat in hand, so I can cross the street. I do not believe this man is in dire straights and have no intention of ever bowing to his demands. This man is usually standing with a lit cigarette and is often talking on his cell phone. This man and his son live together on their two disability cheques, and he is often seen frequenting the Japanese restaurant with takeout box in hand. Panhandling must be a lucrative business. Most people in genuine need are looked after properly without the need to bother others.

Firefighters think pink BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

New Westminster firefighters are suiting up in pink T-shirts to promote antibullying initiatives. Pink Shirt Day – also known as AntiBullying Day – is being celebrated across Canada on Wednesday, Feb. 27. “Anti-bullying is not a one-day mission. It should be a year-round, 24/seven subject matter we should all embrace,” said New Westminster fire inspector Kathy Ius. “That is all part and parcel of the message.” Beginning Feb. 20, local firefighters will be donning pink T-shirts with the goal of promoting an anti-bullying message and showing their support for other anti-bullying initiatives underway in the city. “It’s our way of bringing to the community a message that we completely support all the anti-bullying campaigns promoted throughout the community, especially at the schools,” Ius said. “We just want to go out in the community and say, ‘We are here and we can support you.’” New Westminster Fire and Rescue Services has collected anti-bullying resources, which it will gladly make available as needed. Firefighters will also be attending some local anti-bully-

ing events, including a walk/run at the Queensborough Middle School. “It brings us together, not just as firefighters – it is bringing the community together in one cause,” Ius said. Fire crews will be visiting some local schools and attending events to help raise awareness and support organizations that advocate for anti-bullying in the city. While schools have tackled anti-bullying initiatives, Ius noted that it’s an issue that goes beyond schools. “It is endemic of society as a whole – schools, workplaces, neighbourhoods,” she said. “You always think it’s going to be in the workplace or school – it is not that cut and dried.” City firefighters received permission from management to wear pink T-shirts instead of work attire. Various locals of the International Association of Fire Fighters also support anti-bullying initiatives. “Across the continent there are quite a few fire departments that have had initiatives similar to this,” Ius said. “I personally felt that it needed to be done.” According to New Westminster Fire and Rescue Services, Pink Shirt Day began when two Nova Scotia high school students gave pink shirts to boys in their school, after discovering a new student had been bullied for wearing a pink shirt.

‘Attention seeker’ forces police to close bridge BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

New Westminster Police closed the Queensborough Bridge out of an “over abundance of caution” for about two hours on Thursday morning. Staff Sgt. Paul Hyland said the police department received some information that led to the bridge closure. Police said the public wasn’t at risk, but didn’t release details about the nature of the incident. “We believe it was false,” he said about the information.

Reports on social media indicated that the bridge was close due to a bomb threat. Hyland wouldn’t confirm the reports, but stated that police felt the information was “attention seeking” in nature. After closing the bridge to pedestrians and motorists shortly after 10 a.m., police conducted an investigation on the bridge. It reopened just after noon. “The information we had received was false,” Hyland said. “We are not going to confirm what the information was. We don’t want to give undue attention.” tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

The Columbia Blues Review,

“This essential program serves 47 seniors a year, with numbers growing each day – 798 meals were delivered in the month of January by 29 dedicated volunteers who gave 462 hours of their time,” said executive director Kara-Leigh Jameson in an email to The Record. “This program is not just about a hot meal hand-delivered each day, it is also a social visit for someone who is otherwise isolated or homebound, and also acts as a safety check for our most vulnerable population.” Jameson notes that mobility challenges, sight impairment and chronic illnesses are just a few of the reasons someone would require a hot meal delivery service.

‘Freading’ at the library BY JEFFERY LEE CONTRIBUTOR New Westminster Public Library

Dread going to the library in bad weather? Sick of paying library fines? Try Freading instead. Freading is an electronic library service that New Westminster Public Library has recently added to its eLibrary services. It joins Library To Go for ebooks and audiobooks, Zinio for emagazines, and OneClick Digital for audiobooks. You can access Freading at nwpl.freading.com from the comfort of home any time of the day or night. To download ebooks from Freading, you need a New Westminster library card, and must reside in the city. Freading ebooks are downloaded via a token system. You have a weekly allotment of five tokens, which accumulate for four weeks, and then are reset. When you choose a book, the amount of tokens is deducted from your account. You may check out a Freading ebook for 14 days. There are no fines or charges, and once the 14 days have expired, you can renew a book by searching for the title again. Some popular devices that are compatible with Freading ebooks are Windows or Mac comput-

ers, Apple iPad or iPhone, Android tablets or smartphones, and ereaders such as Nook, Sony Reader, Kobo and Kindle Fire. You can download the Freading app for portable devices through the Freading website or directly from the iTunes store or Google Play.

After Sister Agnes is accused of murdering her infant, a court psychiatrist is charged with assessing the sanity of the young nun, who claims the pregnancy was the result of a virgin conception. This is the premise of the play Agnes of God, written by John Pielmeier – and based on a true story – which questions the nature of sanity, miracles and the meaning of faith and love. Award-winning New Westminster actress Nancy Ebert plays Mother Superior Miriam Ruth in the drama produced by Peninsula Productions, on stage Feb. 28 through March 9. The play is directed by Wendy Bollard and, along with Ebert, stars Becky Hachey and Laine Henderson. Agnes of God runs for two weeks at the Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Rd., White Rock. Tickets are $18 to $23 ($12 on preview night, Feb. 28) and are on sale now at www.peninsulaproduc tions.com, or call 604-536-

Art of history

There’s no better place to learn about the history of New Westminster this month than at the New Westminster Public Library. But you won’t need to open any books. Rather, local author and mixed-media artist Katherine FreundHainsworth is showing an exhibition of her artwork inspired by local homes and neighbourhoods in the reference gallery. Her series, Marking History Through Art, blends two-dimensional mixed-media art on paper with historical texts. Take a tour back through time with FreundHainsworth’s drawing, painting, printmaking and photography, and get a glimpse of the Royal City as it used to be. The show is on display until the end of February, Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. The library is located at 716 Sixth Ave. For more information, call the library at 604-5274660.

Active8 gets kids moving Get moving – that’s the message of a new program that was introduced at two local schools. F.W. Howay and Lord Kelvin elementary schools are participating in the Active8 program, developed by Sandy Earle, the City of New Westminster’s active communities coordinator. “It’s an eight-week program. We are challenging kids to be active outside of just the required 30 minutes of daily activity mandated by the province,” said Stephanie Musgrove, a kindergarten teacher at Kelvin. Students from kindergarten to Grade 7 are participating in the program, which is led by the teachers with Earle’s help. “Sandy has come into the school several different times and done special activities with us,” Musgrove said. “She did a circuit bootcamp with us for our big kick-off. Her daughter Lisa came in

and did a big aerobics class with all of the kids. They also designed an activity brochure, which leads the kids through eight weeks of activity tracking.” The students are in their fourth week of the program. “Older kids I get to see, wow, they’re actually active – their faces are getting red, they are getting sweaty and they’re not just hanging around chatting. It takes effort to be active,” she said. “And the younger kids, they get to see that it’s really fun to be active.” Musgrove said the program benefits kids who don’t participate in sports outside of school. “Lots of families aren’t involved in community sports,” she said. “So we just want to push ourselves as educators to provide more activity minutes for these kids.” - Niki Hope, staff reporter

CREATING BRIGHTER FUTURES SINCE 1903

Need to catch up? Get ahead? Improve a grade? Get more confidence? Tutor Doctor provides tutoring at your home. Each course is tailored for the individual student to achieve their academic goals. You choose the schedule. Every time we talk to a family with a need for tutoring, we want to understand the challenges, needs and objectives of the individual student and the family. Then we can match the student to the best tutor based on location, schedule, subject, grade level and personal style. Making a good match is crucial to success. Our tutors are thoroughly vetted and checked, so you know you will be getting the help of a qualified, competent tutor, who understand your student’s needs and who can be trusted in your home with your child. Tutors range from post graduate students and working professionals to experienced teachers in a wide variety of disciplines. Tutor Doctor is a Canadian success story, providing its service across North

America and beyond. In Burnaby, we are a local company that focuses on the needs of students and families in our community. We’ve been working in the area since September 2010, and in that time, we’ve helped many students to improve their grades, increase their confidences and achieve their objectives.

have covered include Math, English (Literature, Language Arts and ESL), Science, French, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Social Studies, Spanish and Mandarin. We are not limited – we’ve also helped students with Art, History, Earth Science, First Nations Studies, Economics, Accounting and other business subjects.

“We are very impressed with our son’s tutor. He is extremely proactive and works well with our son. They seem to have a nice connection and my son is starting to feel more successful in his writing activities.”

We believe there are very many students who are much more capable academically than their grades at school suggest. Many have yet to learn how to learn – they struggle with organization, planning, test preparation, note taking, research, essay writing – a whole array of skills that we broadly call Study Skills. Tutor Doctor helps students to improve their study skills which in turn raises their confidence and motivation.

We cater to all grades and subjects. We’ve had students as young as 4 and over 70 – still young at heart. Most are Elementary and High School students. The subjects we

ARCHIE & DALE MILLER

T

his year has already featured news of the 150-year anniversary of The Royal Westminster Regiment and the antecedent groups that make up its history. The New Westminster Volunteer Rifles formed in late 1863 when the Royal Engineers disbanded. A newspaper notice regarding this seminal event stated: “Shoulder arms – let every male British subject of full age go to the Hyack Hall this evening and participate in the praiseworthy act of organizing a Volunteer Rifle Company.” Over its history, the members paraded, practiced and worked out at a number of locations, including the early drill hall on McKenzie Street at Carnarvon Street, at the battery overlooking the river near Albert Crescent, in the area of Queen’s Park, in the area of the former Royal Engineers’ camp and at spots on Columbia Street. Even with all those places with military connections, many people connect the regiment only with the armoury (or armouries, depending on your definition) at Sixth Street and Queens Avenue, which has been the group’s home since it opened in the 1890s. The city block occupied by the armoury has been shared by the Duke of Connaught High School and its large playing field, a portion of Tipperary

Park, a small structure that served as a meeting hall and fire hall a long time ago, and of course, today’s city hall. Throughout its history, this armoury building has been vital to the military of the Royal City and has been the focal point for their involvement in such actions as the Boer War, the first and second world wars, and ongoing participation where needed during past decades. During the same period of history, this building has also played a vital role in the community with matters completely unrelated to the military. Perhaps the greatest role the building played occurred early in its life in 1898, when it became the centre for supplies and assistance after the city’s Great Fire wiped out the downtown area. The armoury was set up as a “refugee centre.” In 1984, the city’s 125th anniversary, the regiment played an ongoing role throughout the year’s celebrations. A prominent event that year was an historical presentation on the Royal Engineers and its local history. For that occasion, the armoury welcomed a very large audience to a show with stories, pictures, music and refreshments. Later this year, the New Westminster Historical Society is planning a presentation to look at the many non-military events and connections in the armoury’s story. These have included agricultural displays, sporting events, a gala evening for the Fraser River Discovery Centre, and a number of May Day banquets and related festivities. It will be interesting to see what other events occur during this anniversary year.

The under-16 boys’ team won their sixth provincial lacrosse title as a group, including their third field lacrosse banner, following an 11-4 victory over favoured and regular season champion Port Coquitlam Saints in the gold-medal final in Victoria on Monday. “PoCo has certainly had our number, but our boys stepped it up on Day 2.

With a berth into the championship all locked up, New West surrendered a 5-2 defeat to the eventual bronze medallists, Adanacs.

team all-star following the regular season. At the PacWest provincials, the Royal men will take on the quarter-final winner of Capilano and host College of the Rockies tonight (Friday) in the last of four semifinal matchups.

The medal round will be played on Saturday. – tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

◗ COLLEGE BASKETBALL

Royal women third, men fourth The Douglas College Royals men’s and women’s teams made the playoffs in PacWest basketball. The women’s team finished in third place in the PacWest regular season following a final split last weekend, losing 69-58 to Quest University on Feb. 14 before finishing the season with a 54-43 victory over Capilano University last Saturday. Douglas senior Amonda Francis led the Royals on both nights, scoring 24 points against Quest and then posting a doubledouble in the win over Cap, scoring 19 points and nabbing 12 rebounds.

Douglas led Quest 3025 at halftime, but were outscored 26-16 in the pivotal third quarter by the Squamish team. Against Cap, Patti Olson also scored in double figures, registering 15 points for the third-place-finishing Royals. In men’s collegiate basketball, Douglas finished tied with Capilano and Camosun College, all with 8-13 records following back-to-back losses in the final league games of the season. Harpreet Randhawa posted a 17-point, 17rebound double-double and teammate Dustin

Egelstad led the team with 23 points and five assists but Douglas fell 83-75 on Feb. 14 despite rallying from a 28-15 first-quarter start. In the Royals final league game at home last Saturday, Douglas lost 7256 to Cap. The Royals fell behind in the first half following a 23-10 second quarter. Both Douglas men’s and women’s team qualified for the PacWest provincial basketball championships which will be hosted at Camosun College from Feb. 28 to March 2. –tberridge@royalcityrec ord.com

coach Rich Catton. New West trailed by as many as two goals in the final against the Adanacs. “We had opportunities. We just didn’t finish on our shots,” Catton added. “They had the opportunity to play ball possession and they’re very well coached. But we hope to see them again soon.” Earlier in the preliminary round, the first-year Royal City side eked out a 4-3 win over the Coquitlam team. New West also defeated the A’s four times during the regular season. “That’s sports. You have to be your best

every day,” Catton said. In the team’s five other victories at the provincials, New West allowed a combined six goals, including an 8-1 win over Pacific Rim, a 6-1 victory over Victoria and an 11-1 triumph over Langley. Cole Catton was the u-12’s fair play winner. The u-14 New Westminster team lost 8-4 to the Adanacs in the bronze-medal final. New West, including fair play winner Sterling Tambolne, chalked up two wins in preliminary round play. New Westminster’s Russel Thomas was named the u-14 Tier 1 fair play coach.

schedule before playoffs, Saturday’s matchup with third-place Northwest Nazarene is a crucial test of the Clan’s mettle, said Langford. Earning the program’s first-ever berth into a NCAA national tournament remains the team’s ultimate goal. “It would be deserving for the kids,” said Langford, “and a shame if we didn’t reach our potential.” For Raincock-Ekunwe, the difference might just come down to her newfound intensity. “I’ll remember most going down to the States and showing the Americans that Canadian girls can play. It’s always a good feeling when we beat the Americans,” she said.

Double trouble: Simon Fraser University’s Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe leads the nation in field goal shooting and is fifth all-time with 55 career double-doubles.

Midget Giants lock up first place points over the Ice, including a six-point effort in the opener. Lukosevicius potted a hat trick in the return match. Jansen Harkins and Colton Kerfoot matched each other’s scoring in Saturday’s win, tallying three goals and adding two assists apiece. Harkins chipped in with another four points on Sunday, while teammates Zach Landon and Jackson Cressy both had a pair of goals and one assist in the rematch.

The Northwest Giants clinched their sixth consecutive B.C. major midget hockey regular season title following one-sided wins over the Kootenay Ice at home. The Giants opened with a 12-0 victory at the Burnaby Winter Club last Saturday and followed it up with a 13-2 win on Sunday. Jarid Lukosevicius moved up to fourth overall scoring, garnering a total of 10

Cancer June 21-July 22: Chase money, buy/ sell Sunday – garage sales intrigue. (Don’t buy anything big and important.) Short trips, details, communications and paperwork fill Monday/Tuesday (avoid government forms). Focus on home, kids, real estate, security and nutrition midweek. Friday/ Saturday hold romantic/creative success– which fits superbly into February/March’s broad cycle of love, cultural rituals, far travel, wisdom and higher learning. You could fall in love! But remember: start nothing, project nor relationship, before March 17. The best romance is ongoing, or is embodied in an old flame. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: You’ve entered the realm of mystery, lust, health diagnosis and hidden power plays. Something might return from the past in this arena – perhaps a former sexy playmate, perhaps a chance to live a lifestyle you once hungered for, perhaps a former investment opportunity. DO research, ask questions, follow the mystery, and deal with ongoing situations/people or those returning from the past. DON’T start a new relationship, project, investment or venture. All this, to March 17. You’re the subtle star Sunday. Chase money Monday/ Tuesday. Paperwork, errands midweek. Home, family Friday on. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: DON’T start new projects or relationships before March 17. Stick with the ongoing, and situations that return from the past – including a possible return of a former partner or someone you wished was. However, this few-week interval seems designed more to make you ponder the big picture of relationships, than to re-instate an old one permanently. It’s as if you’re on a bridge to a very different land of love, and are stalled: not to turn you back, but to make you think. Lie low Sunday. Tackle everything with confidence Monday/Tuesday. Money, midweek. Casual friends late week.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Rest, lie low, deal with head office, government agencies, institutions, charitable and spiritual organizations. Start no new projects nor relationships before March 17. Instead, reprise (or fix) the old, or stick with the ongoing. Sunday’s filled with beauty and pleasant notions, but your advances might be playfully steered aside. Tackle overdue work Monday/Tuesday. Relationships prove important midweek – a great conversation (or news article) and a spiritual awakening or dreamy state occur. Seek changes, health diagnosis, realistic investments and/or intimacy Friday/Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Your popularity grows. Optimism, wish fulfillment, light romance and entertainment increase this week and the next few. Old friends return, old wishes are granted, and former flirty, light romantic contacts reappear. New friends and new projects, if started now to March 16, will tend to twirl brightly for awhile, then fizzle. Sunday’s for home, garden, rest, and rejuvenation. Romance calls Monday/Tuesday – your creative, speculative and expressive skills rise up. Tackle familiar chores midweek. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em Friday/ Saturday – great things come from partnering! Gemini May 21-June 20: Start no new projects, ventures or relationships before March 17. Until then, protect ongoing projects, especially in career and dealings with authorities. They, and bosses, and parents, are gripped by indecision until then. Be ambitious (not ambiguous). Shore up your position, secure recent advances, Monday/Tuesday – or rest and nurture family, for they are the support for your ambitions. Earlier, Sunday’s for short trips, friends and curiosity. Romance and creativity lure you Wednesday/Thursday: but they conflict with your need to grow. You get a lot of work done Friday/Saturday.

Feb. 24 - Mar. 2, 2013

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Much work faces you, but tackle only routine, ongoing or formerly neglected chores before March 17. DON’T start big new projects, employ new staff, nor buy machinery, tools, computers – lemons abound. A former job might be offered. If you’re seeking employment, canvas former bosses. Sunday’s bright, hopeful, happy. Retreat and rest Monday/Tuesday -- government-related tasks go well. (Though they, too, face delay.) Your energy and pizzazz return strongly midweek, but luck (in love, learning, law and travel) mixes with domestic problems. Your money luck soars Friday/Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: This week goes from better to best! (But don’t be tempted to start a new project or relationship before March 17.) Sunday’s for ambition and community reputation: elevate yours by joining, helping. Optimism, popularity, wish fulfillment and general delight fill Monday/Tuesday: an old flame or flirty friend could reappear . You’re on a month-long winning streak of romance, creativity, sports or pleasure. You can renew contacts on many levels, including business. Retreat midweek to rest and contemplate. Your energy and charisma soar Friday/Saturday – you’ll succeed, attract love. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Don’t start new projects or relationships before March 17, Sage, especially in family, domestic, nutrition, real estate, retirement or security zones. (E.g., you could find new renovations have left no room for the basement stairs.) Stick to ongoing projects, or situations from the past. Clear away neglected home-related chores. Sunday’s mellow, thoughtful, cultural. Show your ambition Monday/Tuesday (but start nothing new!). Happiness, optimism and friends fill midweek. Success assured with institutions, government, meditation, rest, health and research Friday/Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Start nothing new before March 17, Cap, especially in mail, computer, telephony, office systems, stationery, or travel. Don’t buy a car or any equipment. You might rediscover a lost book, letter, photo – or an entire “lost acquaintance.” (Don’t invest too heavily in the last.) Sunday’s secrets will open, if you diplomatically push. A mellow, understanding mood flows over you Monday/Tuesday – love (or the hope of love) is possible! Be ambitious midweek, display your skills: luck accompanies you. Social delights, popularity, light romance succeed splendidly Friday/Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Money’s just an abstract way to mete out power, security, position, food, shelter, clothing, medical, dental...and most love is entwined with these. So chase money now to March 19, Aquarius. You won’t be neglecting love, but supporting it. But don’t start a new project or venture. Stick with ongoing dollar situations, or reprise those from the past. (E.g., sell an old article, or seek a job where you worked before.) Sunday’s made exciting by a sensual person. Sex, secrets and finances, Monday/Tuesday. Understanding, mellow love midweek. Ambition, career Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy, luck and charisma remain high, Pisces. Remember, start nothing before March 17. Until then, you’ll remain indecisive about goals, partnerships, opportunities, relocation, and love. Stick with ongoing projects, or reprise old ones – avoid the new. Everything’s smooth this week. Chores call Sunday. Relationships, opportunities and goals arise Monday/Tuesday – though excitement occurs, remember: no new links or projects. Life’s mysteries emerge midweek, but hold few rewards if you solve them. Friday/Saturday bring gentle love, intellectual venues and superb luck. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
